Based on the highly anticipated, star-studded animated feature film from DreamWorks Animation, Madagascar is the only console game that lets players enter the world of 4 hilarious Central Park Zoo animals--a personality-packed crew made up of a lion, zebra, giraffe and hippo--and their crafty penguin sidekicks. Players must master each animal's natural skills while adventuring through the exciting city of New York and the dangerous island of Madagascar, interacting with other animals and tackling obstacles and enemies in scenarios from the movie and beyond.
Life is good in the Central Park Zoo for four lifelong friends. Taking the lead in this wacky pack is Alex the Lion—the zoo's pride (pardon the pun) and joy. His sidekick, Marty the Zebra, is a dreamer who always has his striped head in the clouds. Their buddy Melman the Giraffe is a hypochondriac. (Hey, you'd be afraid of getting a sore throat if yours was five feet long, too.) Last but not least is Gloria--the hippest hippo who knows how to throw her weight around. When a gang of scheming penguins inspires a daring zoo break, this funky foursome trades their comfortable caged lifestyle for the adventure of a lifetime. Will they, and their friendships, have what it takes to survive in the wild? * Get in touch with your animal instincts - Fighting for survival has never been this much fun. Play as the main characters from the movie--Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo and Melman the Giraffe--as you take on obstacles, interact with characters and face off against enemies. In bonus chapters, play as different characters--from lovable lemurs to crafty penguins.
* Rock the city and rule the jungle - Test your animal abilities in mini-games and several action-packed, movie-based chapters.
* Get your groove on as you go - Develop new skills as you take the role of each zoo animal during the game. Help Alex maximize the power of his claws, roar and pounce; get Marty to pump up his long jump, back kick and stealth crawl skills; utilize Gloria's butt smash and spiced up charge; and perfect Melman's helicopter spin and ammo-throwing neck fling. (The ammo we're talkin' 'bout here includes coconuts and lemurs, thank you very much.)
