  • Summary: Every Ogre needs some peace and quiet, even Shrek! Now that Shrek is the newly discovered hero to all of the fairy tale characters, they have over-run his"home sweet swamp" and are begging for his help ... after all, he is the strongest, meanest, and greenest ogre around. In an effort to live happily ogre after, Shrek embarks on 36 missions in four never-before-seen worlds. Expand

  1. This title is a good pick for players ages 13 to 17 (especially those who liked the film), though older players might grow tired of the gags after a while.
  2. The sheer number and monotony of the challenges, however, gets boring at times. [Jan 2002, p.88]

    Visually, Shrek is a great example of what the system can do...The structure of the game quickly becomes repetitive, and more importantly, the individual goals of the game just aren't fun.
  4. The problem here is that the levels are either two small, or laid out in ways that are counter-intuitive. There's also the problem of challenge.
  5. 48
    Sure the graphics are fabulous, but the gameplay, sound effects, replay value, level design, and camera system are so poor that few people will find this game fun.
  6. Repetitive action and sloppy control in lieu of an enthralling adventure.
  7. Simply put, this game sucks. [Jan 2002, p.42]

    This gem was the reason the Xbox survived. The pure amazing power that is shrek is too much for even this console so it freezes. The missions are enthralling and I've replayed 420 times. Shrek is love. Shrek is life. Expand

    Totally under rated, its a blast to pick up and play once in a while, the cheats are awsome too.
