2.0 out of 5 stars Super Madagascar Kart 64 26 April 2012
By Stevie G VINE VOICE
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I would love to call Madagascar: Kartz something other than a lazy cash in, or a Mario Kart knock off. But there are too many similarities, and not enough originality to justify labelling it as anything else. Players can race as various characters from the Madagascar franchise (in addition to Shrek and B.O.B from Monsters vs. Aliens) across a paltry 9 tracks. Sadly no track designs are memorable, and they all take less than 3 minutes to complete. There are four difficulty modes which unlock upon completion of the last. Just like Mario Kart, these are 50cc, 100cc, 150cc and 200cc, which acts as a mirror mode. Aside from a single race, there's a Championship, and Time Trial mode, which forms the majority of the single player challenge.

Unfortunately races lack any sense of speed, and power ups feel like a jumbled mess that haven't been play tested or balanced in the slightest. For example, one weapon turns the racer into a wooden box! Whilst this functions as a shield, it isn't particularly empowering, or fun to use. Power ups like banana skins, spiders, and the `Horn of Maurice' cause a loss of control for a ridiculously long time, and the player is utterly helpless whilst they repeatedly veer into a wall, or over a ledge. What really exasperates this is the fact the computer AI cheats, particularly at 150/200cc difficulties. It's infuriating to have a perfect race, only to be ruthlessly blasted with power ups on the final straight, losing out on a podium finish. Like most games that overuse `rubber banding', success feels a matter of luck than actual skill. Considering this is primarily a kid's game, this is unforgivable.

Let's be honest, the game is aimed at the children's market so you should bear that in mind when playing it.

I've only played it briefly but from what I've seen so far it's a fun (if somewhat basic) racing game, based very much on Mario Kart. More importantly I think that my kids (5 & 7) will enjoy it immensely... it's currently hidden under the Xmas tree but I sneaked a go before wrapping it :)

Good to see some PS3 games being released for the younger audience, and at a lower price too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bof 26 Nov. 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I was looking for a Mario Kart game. It looks like it but actually the weapons are not that good, there are too few races. It s more a child game. It would perfectly suit a 10 years old child.
