I've never seen the original movie, nor do I plan on rushing out to the theater and paying to see the movie this game is based on. It's also worth mentioning that I didn't play the first game, so I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I turned on my system and started to play Activision's adaptation of this popular franchise. What I found was that Madagascar 2 was a fun and inoffensive game. It's certainly not the kind of thing hardcore gamers are going to be swooning over, but if you're shopping for a young child then you could do a lot worse than this."
