  1. Fun while it lasts, quirky and true to the Shrek films.
  2. The gameplay is fun, but not nearly groundbreaking and unlikely to provide hours and hours of entertainment. The graphics are sharp, but nothing that’ll put the Xbox 360 at risk of overheating because the processors are working too hard.

    Shrek-N-Roll is more boredom and mundane than fun and exhilarating, even for diehard fans of all three Shrek films.
  4. It is fun for the first few levels until you realize that it’s all the same and not particularly imaginative.
  5. Even as a diversion for the younger set, this game just doesn't have any staying power.
  6. Local co-op play requires constant communication and generates some small excitement, but isn't enough to make Shrek-n-Roll more than an overpriced novelty. [Jan 2008, p.69]
  7. Shrek is now dead to us, which is a shame; it all started so well. [Issue#29, p.117]

    Changed my life. It's Skyrim, but with guns. I have never played a game so robust, immersive and deep like Shrek-N-Roll for the XBox 360. I pray to Shrek every night and now I know why he has been ignoring my prayers. He waited to reveal to me Shrek-N-Roll for the XBox 360. Now I cry myself to sleep every night with tears of joy. Shrek is love, Shrek is life. Expand

    I was having seizures for months from the visons the ogrelord was sending me. All I could see was a green X and his form on a plastic case. Now I know
