  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.

    Simple put, a fun game that holds true to the movie. I found the game to be much better than many other movie tie in games I've played in the past. My kids love the game (of course) and use up their 1/2 hour of game/tv time a day to play it. Expand

    The mini games are fun to play with the kids; however the main game just repeats the same thing over, and over, and over, again; should have at least been able to use the 2 player mode in the main game. If you're looking for a great game, this will not hold your attention for very long. Collapse

    This game is a horrible waste of time, it shows no use of the wiimotes unique controll scemes and even then lack of multiplayer and difficulty leave child only players enjoying it for over 2 minutes! Expand
