  1. The animation is excellent as are the level designs. Vicarious Visions did a great job at bringing the Shrek atmosphere to the GBA.
  2. The designers have managed to capture the charm and visual style of the films and recreate a small portion of that magic on the small screen – the very small screen.

    It's a fun, easy game to breeze through in a few hours, with a handful of taxing elements put in there for those perfectionist who appreciate a bit of replay value, and want to beat the game's challenges 100%.
  4. Remaining faithful to the franchise by displaying it in the manner intended by Dreamworks and PDI, I am delighted to recommend this game to any of you out there who are particularly enamored by the guy in green we know of as Shrek.
  5. Comfortable controls and a refined presentation see featured switch-flipping, mushroom-hopping, pumpkin and peasant-bopping antics delight, despite the fact that they're hardly original. [Summer 2004, p.41]
  6. The puzzles are cleverly designed to use character-specific abilities to their fullest. [July 2004, p.120]
  7. With 25 levels you would think this game would last a long time. A decent gamer will hack his or her way through this in an afternoon.
  8. It's certainly not the greatest platform adventure ever, but it's imbued with the same charming humour as the film, with all manner of sight gags that tip a knowing wink to fans of the movie.
  9. A fun, kid-friendly game that also does a good job of telling the movie's story.
  10. While mildly entertaining, the GBA library is far too impressive for Shrek 2 to make a name for itself.

    Graphics and level design are decent. The movement and combat is slow and makes the game boring. The atmosphere does feel like Shrek, however. That helps it out a little bit. Full Review »
