I’m just not sure Jeffrey Katzenberg expected that the original movie’s comic relief, the ship-hijacking penguins and that ring-tailed loon King Julien, would be the ones to really move it, move it.
But there they are, six years later, riding high with their own Nickelodeon TV show, a big-screen return coming up next summer with Madagascar 3, and, now, star billing in their third video game. The wordy The Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns Again! is the first to grace the Xbox 360 (it’s also on DS, Wii and PS3), and it’s about what you’d expect from a title like this one—light-hearted casual fun that does a decent job of stretching the Kinect sensor’s abilities."
