  1. A remix of sorts that's shockingly nearly as gorgeous but tragically just as bad, if not worse in exactly the same places - character physics and collision. [Feb 2003, p.90]
  2. A fist-flying, flame-belching 2-D romp in a twisted fairy-tale world. [Dec 2002, p.218]
  3. Stay far away from this game as even a rental would be grounds for a lawsuit against TDK for "cruel and unusual punishment".

    It's awful... A standout in crap execution.
  5. Playing this game is like someone shoving a wire brush down your esophagus then pulling it out your you-know-what. [Jan 2003, p.102]
  6. 20
    A series of frustrating elements add up to an overall inferior experience.

    This is probably the best game I've ever played, and certainly the best game on gamecube. Shrek: Extra Large is on of the most underrated titles of all time, while metacritic lists games like "Meteorite Prim" as the best of the console, while Shrek EL is left in the shadows. This is true injustice. Expand

    Shrek: Extra Large changed the way I looked at games forever. Shrek: Extra Large made me understand games as an art. Shrek: Extra Large features a set of wacky and hilarious characters such as SHREK, FIONA, PUSS IN BOOT, and FARQUAAD!! This game is amazing and I suggest anyone pick it up at game stop and play It.

    This game DID change my life.
    It was a summers eve when I first played this game (this was when Al Gore tried to kill President Bush(this was
    not reported on by the mass media)) and these were dark times. Dark times. I had yet to see the eternal light that is Shrek Extra Large, and things we're... Not great. Various Farquaads held on to the last bits of power they could and things were bleak. People wandered the dank streets with much less than an onion in hand. Then on October 31st, 2002, Shrek Extra Large was released. It forever changed humanity, curing world hunger, killing off the Farquaads of our society, and bringing us a golden age that hasn't been upon us since 69 BC "The Year of the Ogre".

    I give this game a 10 because there is not higher number on this scale. My love for this game transcends any number on the world, and it gets me, pretty chubbed.

    The only reason i gave it a 1 is because the princess in the movie is hot.

    This game is SOOOOOO bad it has TERRIBLE graphics and makes no sense. Shrek looks mentally retarded and you have two useless moves, farting and burping. the story makes nos sense and the gameplay is boring and repetitive. the only reason to get this garbage is to make fun of it that is the only reason to get it.
