Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns Again! – Xbox 360 Kinect Game Review

We were sent a copy of the ‘Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns Again!’ for the Xbox 360 Kinect.

The Penguins of Madagascar are back with an adventure letting little ones get active with the Xbox 360 Kinect. You get to take on the Dr. Blowhole, the evil dolphin, to save the world, again?

As the penguins you have to stop Dr. Blowhole from stealing treasures and trying to take over the world by actively solving the puzzles, building robots, and doing what is needed to save the world. The game has a good message of teamwork and humor. You will get the photos throughout the game of your child being as wacky as the penguins themselves.

This game is designed for kids. It is an action game but is easy for kids to stay on track allowing the game to continue when they may get lost for where or what to do. The benefit of the Kinect is that kids have to stay active and use their entire bodies to play the game. This is a single player game but has lots of gameplay in store as you play out the different characters and use their abilities to get through the adventure.

The penguin’s voices are those from the film and Neil Patrick Harris is the voice of the evil Dr. Blowhole. Besides the penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private, you also meet up with King Julian, that wacky dancing lemur, and interact with Maurice, Mort and Marlene, and some new characters.

The game is quite fun for my kiddos and we’ve enjoyed it!!
