  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.

    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]

    Graphics and level design are decent. The movement and combat is slow and makes the game boring. The atmosphere does feel like Shrek, however.Graphics and level design are decent.
