  • Summary: In Shrek Smash n' Crash Racing, gamers take on the role of Shrek, Princess Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots or eight other Shrek universe characters and race around on comical vehicles such as Puss in Boots’ bull, Humpty Dumpty’s egg cup and Gingy's cupcake. With a wide variety of tracks featuring log swings, windmills, moving gates, draw bridges and other gauntlets that test racing skills, players must use their melee accessories such as Donkey's microphone and Pinocchio's nose to battle twisted fairy-tale opponents through 12 locations from Shrek's Swamp to Far Far Away to Fairy Godmother's Factory. Pixie dust, ogre strength and swamp gas will boost speed and strength, as well as thwart players’ opponent’s progress if gamers fall behind. Players can pit their skills against the game’s advanced AI or enjoy the challenge of schooling their friends in multi-player, split-screen action. [Activision] Expand

  1. All of the environments are imaginative, colorful, and filled with Shrek-inspired detail. They are a great sight to behold, but alas, they are all too short. I would liked to have seen double the amount of tracks.

    The tracks are well done as far as looks, but they're short and poorly laid out. The actual racing is not challenging and clumsy. The voice acting, while well matched to the celebrity voices, are obnoxious and far too repetitive.

    One of the best racing simulators of all time, Shrek Smash n' Crash Racing will give you decades of entertainment and joy. Don't listen to the Farquaads who call themselves "game reviewers", as they are spiritually blind and do not know the true glory of Shrek. Expand
