The Madagascar Kartz game we got to review (for Nintendo Wii) came with a bonus custom wheel, which was pretty cool! But what about the game? Check out the official Kidzworld review, below!


Wild Ride

Madagascar Kartz is a kart racing game that'll take you through memorable locations in the Dreamworks' Madagascar franchise with the full cast of the two movies' characters: Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe, Gloria the hippo, the penguins, the chimps and King Julien. There are even other Dreamworks characters, including Shrek and Bob from Monsters Vs. Aliens driving around the courses right from the start.




Each character in the game has his or her own strengths and weaknesses, from speed to acceleration, so just because you like Melvin doesn't mean he's a great character to use as a starting driver. Powersliding through turns (holding the shoulder button while steering hard around a corner) will build up your turbo boost, same as landing tricks while airborne (hitting one of four directions on your D-pad).




Fun Features

There are a few cool elements in Madagascar Kartz, like the ability to unlock artwork by collecting mangoes and an achievement system that even carries over to different platforms. The one big problem: there's no online component, which will be missed by those of you using PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles.
