  1. As weak as licensed kiddie games get. It's a boring, shallow experience that features none of the whimsy and hilarity of the films.

    Rather than doing anything very clever, it just nicks some of the best lines from the films, reminds you of the bits you liked, and carries on quietly being an incredibly average platform scrapper. [Sept 2007, p.117]
  3. Shrek the Third's main problem is its complete lack of spark.

The graphics were good, playing the game was decent and the story was alright. I reckon this game pleased massive Shrek fans at the time and I admit it did partially please me. But I also definitely remember it having parts which on the other hand were boring, empty and forgettable.

    To sum up, it was a decent game but far from being a world-beater. Expected really, for this franchise.

You run around famous Shrek-releated landscapes, beating up bad guys and collecting coins to buy power ups. You can run past most of the enemies, which is really handy if you're just rushing through the game. There's also some innuendo (which gave this game a PG rating in the UK) to keep the adults entertained, but even that didn't make me enjoy the game.

    The Shrek 2 (PS2/Xbox) game is ways better than this. I recommend you to stick to that.
