  1. The game's combat system is fundamentally solid with an excellent combo system that is actually much more in-depth than I originally suspected.
  2. Shrek SuperSlam is just like Powerstone, but with Shrek characters. I'm sure you remember how good Powerstone on the Dreamcast was, too. I remember those days well!
  3. It lacks the polish that could make it a worthy brawler right up there with Super Smash Bros. or Power Stone, but it's a fantastic entry level game for the kids with just enough depth to make it an occasional round with the adults.
  4. Repetition aside, however, there's no reason why kids won't be all over this one. Shrek SuperSlam is slap-happy fun for everyone.
  5. A great game for a group of friends as well as for the younger crowd. Its target audience actually ends up being a great decision because of the easy to pick up and simple gameplay.

    Detailed and fluidly animated characters duke it out in impressively destructible environments. Framerate and texture issues hold the game back from graphical greatness.

    It's obvious from the first minute of play time that SuperSlam aspires to copy "Super Smash Bros.," and a general lack of character responsiveness and a sometimes jittery framerate with multiple characters onscreen limits the fighter's potential.
  8. If you're above the age of 13, you may find this game extremely boring, and somewhat lackluster. It's got the makings of a fun-filled 3D fighting game, but it just unfortunately doesn't deliver like it should.
  9. Activision has churned out another Shrek licensed title, with all the sophomoric charm of the films but a tired gameplay concept. There's a certain degree of variety, between story and multiplayer modes, but it all comes up short when the player realizes there's nothing here to hold interest.
  10. A bit of fun, and those who don't mind some multiplayer action will certainly find it here. It's better than most Shrek games before it, and it faithfully represents the films as it's supposed to.
  11. If you don't already own Super Smash Bros Melee, and all Blockbuster's copies are already rented, Shrek Super Slam just might fit tbe bill.

    A pretty impresive game, if you like a super smash bros. with shrek people, this is almost it.
