Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

What do these ratings mean?

Well somebody's got to write one, haven't they?

Pixar movies are, in general, of top quality, but most of the games based on the films are average at best. Graphics are second rate and the imagination in the gamepay is poor, often repeating missions but changing your surroundings. Madagascar's Gameplay is orientated around physics related challanges, but the gameplay seems somehow pre-rendered. The diffidulty levels are way out of proportion, some missions are nigh on impossible, and some are embarrasingly easy. The game on the island bears little to no resemblance to what happens in the film.

The environments are, however, detailed and well designed, so are the characters, looking almost as real as they do in the cinema. There are a few unlockable mini games, mini golf and sliding along a beach in a rubber ring.

And thats about it.
