  1. The best thing about this is the fact that every task, adventure and puzzle is fun and entertaining. It’s a fast paced game that is enjoyable for all ages.
  2. The voice acting is so good gamers will think it's actually the original cast. [Aug 2004, p.7]
  3. It has all the elements needed in a movie-based video game, and in some aspects even goes above and beyond that. However, the lasting appeal of the game leaves a lot to be desired. If they had just thrown in another gameplay mode, this game could have been spectacular.
  4. A solid game that leans towards the easy side. The only real flaws are an iffy camera and iffier reading of its potential audience. It's still the best interactive thing to happen to the Shrek universe thus far.

    An amusing jaunt into the world of the movie. It doesn't require a lot of skill and there isn't a cohesive story, but I couldn't stop playing it.
  6. Those who have long since retired their Shrek-themed bedsheets will find the game easy and repetitive [July 2004, p.94]
  7. Though the objectives are overly simple and quite repetitive, the game is well programmed with decent graphics and a solid pace, and the cooperative aspect should make for many lively slumber parties. Just don’t expect it to keep the grown-up ogres entertained for long.

SOMEHOW managed to top shrek 1 the video game. Whilst playing this game, my mother saw me playing it and she instantly collapsed on her knees, and began crying over simply seeing the insane, realistic graphics that are held within this compact cd. I cried nightly for a year because my brain could not even function due to playing this beautiful gift shrek has blessed upon this humble planet. 10/10 would let game penetrate shrektum. Expand
