  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. Cheat Code Central

    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.

    The puzzles are cleverly designed to use character-specific abilities to their fullest. [July 2004, p.120]
  6. 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.
  7. 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.Graphics and level design are decent.

    With its terrible graphics, way to simple controls, and puke worthy level design, this makes Grabbed by the Ghoulies look like Halo.
