Another decent familiy tie-in from Activision, maybe not quite enjoyable as Kung-Fu Panda or Ice Age, but still entertaining for a childish audience. Best if played in co-op with 2-4 other people, the lack of an online mode is really a shame.
A game that is meant to be played by kids. The gameplay is pretty repetitive and the whole game is very short. It is more fun when played with multiple people, but then also the game isn't great. It's good for the children, but it could have been a lot, lot better.
An adult player used to more complex and demanding experiences and accustomed to more complex and demanding experiences, will not find in this Shrek big reasons to stay connected for long. For young fans delivers the tools to set an interesting challenge.
We see the appeal in sitting down with a son or daughter and playing through a level or two, but it's likely that children will lose interest even before the parents' owned feigned attention lapses. [Aug 2010, p.87]
