  1. While the Nintendo DS version is undoubtedly superior, Shrek the Third is still a solid and enjoyable (albeit youth-oriented) GBA sidescroller.
  2. Even taken as a standalone game and not a movie tie-in, this latest Shrek adventure is a charming title that is fun, challenging, and perfect for the younger kids.
  3. This version of Shrek the Third is particularly short. An adult can beat the game in a single afternoon, and more likely a week for a kid due to some of the more difficult platformer elements.
  4. Only a select few will be repeatedly occupied by Shrek the Third's search-based gameplay. The rest of you will beat it once and may never have the desire to return.
  5. Kids who are fans of the movies will probably enjoy every minute of it, but parents may want to find a longer game to invest their money in.
  6. The platforming is polished, if simple, and the graphics are above par. Just as the game isn't awful, however, neither is it good, and it certainly doesn't have much staying power, even for young ones.
  7. Shrek the Third for the Game Boy Advance is a team-oriented adventure game that's hurt by its crummy presentation and overly simplistic puzzles.

    Shrek the Third on the GBA is a seriously disappointing title.
