  1. It won’t keep mature gamers’ attention for very long, but kids will love it.
  2. While the little kids won’t especially notice or even care about the some of the graphical quirks and choppy animation – Puss in Boots is the main culprit – any older gamers will likely be distracted but if you’re just playing the “hard” parts of the game, it’s not so bad.
  3. The saving grace of this game is Shrek and the other characters. They are portrayed charmingly and just like in the movies. The mini-games are also fun. However, the game as a whole isn’t anything above average and would probably receive a lesser rating without the presence of Shrek and company.
  4. There are several attempts at greatness, like the mini-games that can be enjoyed with your friends. Yet, the mini-games are more of a distraction than anything else.
  5. A grotesque abomination that should be burned at the stake. [Aug 2007, p.93]
  6. The ogre's latest looks better but plays worse on the Wii.
  7. Shrek The Third is best left lying in the bargain buckets, and even then, that's too good a fate for what it actually is.
