Movies to Video Game Review — Madagascar (PC/GC/PS2/XBoX)
–This is a Fan Requested Review–
Madagascar for the PC, Nintendo GameCube, Sony Playstation 2 and Microsoft XboX, is fully reviewed and analyzed as compared to the actual movie itself.
Feel free to comment. More movies to video games reviews coming soon.. suggestions and feedback welcome and encouraged.
To save on space and time in the video, the score tallies and descriptions of how I got to the scores are listed here instead.
They are on a 1-10 scale with 10 being the best score possible:
Story Accuracy to the Movie 6.5
(Not too bad. All the locations and situations from the film seem to show up in either cutscene or by the path of the game. But once we get to said locations and after the story elements are told to us things just get out of place and out of whack at times.)
Music Soundtrack Accuracy to the Movie’s 1.5
(This is very disappointing. There is really nothing from the film found here music wise. I like to Move it is also missing replaced by generic repetitive beats that we hear. I really wish Activision would go for the music from the movies. If you are to do a game based on a movie right, go all the way, not just part of the way to make the quick buck.)
Game Difficulty 3.5
(This gets a bad mark for being just too easy. I went through the whole game and really just died a few times and even then I had almost 20 extra characters to work with. I know the game is for kids but even they will find this way too easy. . )
Overall Fun 5.5
(Its fun in the fact that you do get to use 5 of the animal characters from the movie and even feel like its them as you are exploring about. And you will feel like you are in their world with the great level set ups. But thats where the fun ends really. The game is short and stages get dull and repetitive and the mini games are ho hum. Not enough going on to make this a great game.)
Final Score: 5.75
