Farm Frenzy 3 - Madagascar Review

Updated on September 24, 2010

Farm Frenzy 3 Madagascar by Alawar (Out Now for PC)

Games company Alawar is on something of a roll at the moment with some great games for the online fans. One of their most popular products is the Farm Frenzy franchise, with Farm Frenzy, Farm Frenzy 2 and Farm Frenzy 3. Farm Frenzy 3 is the latest and most popular game and has spawned numerous spin offs for fans of the series.

The latest of which is set in the stunning location of Madagascar. By doing this it goes away from the traditional animals like cows and chickens, and moves towards Elephants and Rhinos. But does this game just change a few graphics to pass off as another whole new game?


So whats FF3 Madagascar like?

Well the game play is very similar to other Farm Frenzy 3 titles. In fact if you already own a different Farm Frenzy 3 title, then its almost too familiar. But if you are a fan of these types of games, or you haven't played a Farm Frenzy game since 2 or before then there is a lot to recommend in Madagascar.

The game features a story which is basically a cover to give you this great new range of animals. Scarlett has found herself on a reservation to save animals, and hence you want to raise more! This allows the game to present the biggest change which is the animals on offer. In typical Farm Frenzy style, they look fantastic. The large cartoon style graphics are once again rendered in 3D then converted to 2D giving you a great looking game, without the need for a dedicated graphics card. Animation is fantastic, and the Elephants in particular look great. Overall it is a very pretty web game, which for this type of game effects the gameplay for the better. You need to know where things are and what is what at a glance, and Farm Frenzy 3 Madagascar does this well. The exotic African animals make for a nice change to cows and chickens.

Levels are set out as you would expect. Complete the goals, and move on. The game has a huge amount of longevity, with over 90 levels as well as unlocks and other achievements. This is done through a star system which allows you to unlock different stages. The levels themselves are very challenging once you get into it, and the game has a great learning curve, as you again would expect from a Farm Frenzy title.

Overall

Like mentioned before how we rate this game depends on whether you own another Farm Frenzy 3 title or not. If you do knock off one V. However for big fans, or people who have not played one before, Farm Frenzy 3 Madagascar is easy to recommend. Its animals and environments make it stand out from the crowd of Farming games, and the graphics make easy work of letting you know what is happening with its clear fluid animation. The gameplay is very polished and it has many levels begging you to come back for more.
