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.

    Cameron's in drag, makes his father mad Since he was a little boy he always felt more comfortable in lipstick People call him ###, teachers turn their backs Off the bus he runs and runs to get home before anyone can catch him These days the world is full of aliens The world is full of aliens But you are a real, live human Aren't you, Cameron? Powder and a brush can cover any cuts And quickly running cotton under cold water rinses out the blood marks Cameron, you're a star A light where there is dark And you're a hundred times a woman A hundred times the man that they are These days the world is full of aliens The world is full of aliens, but you are a human A real, live human Aren't you, Cameron? You're not an alien You're not an alien You're not an alien Cameron You're not an alien You're not an alien You're not an alien Cameron
