LAS VEGAS--Tucked away in one of the corners of Microsoft's booth on the CES show floor is an early version of Activision's Madagascar for the Xbox. The third-person action game is being developed by Toys for Bob and is based on the upcoming DreamWorks computer-generated movie that's currently being crafted by PDI. The film revolves around four New York Zoo animals: Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe, and Gloria the hippo. All four wind up making a break from their cozy home in the city to head out to the wilds of Madagascar. The game will use the film's narrative as a base but will flesh it out to provide a proper framework for its action.
In this segment, we look at gameplay of the Penguin Mission "Penguin Mutiny". Why its a Mutiny is beyond me, but we play as Skipper and liberate the ship from the Sailors. So in other words, its a hijacking. Private Kowalski and Rico offer some assistance, but remain as unplayable characters.
