    Not what I would expect for the 360, but a good game nonetheless.

    This was a great concept on paper but somehow they managed to take what was a original game with great characters and a interesting story and turn it in to a lifeless soulless game.

    This is a title that fans of skateboarding games will pick up and love, due to the simple fact that for XBox 360, there isn't much of a selection of this type of game out there for them. Other people can and might enjoy it, but in the end, it fails to impress and is nothing spectacular.

    The gameplay is pretty bad, the features of the game have inexplicably vanished, and the only good new thing about the title is the improved graphics - which really aren't all that groundbreaking when compared to other 360 titles.

    For gamers hoping for a deeper, more unique game play use of EyeToy’s capabilities, this ain’t it.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The game’s audio, variety of weapons and moves keeps you interested for a while, but the game isn’t that long and is very repetitive, which certainly kills any buzz you originally had.

    A good weekend rental for kids who liked the Shrek movies, but a poor purchase unless you have several young’n’s who game together. It captures the movie’s attitude and charm well enough, but glosses over too much of its game play potential.

    The innumerable customization options are enjoyable enough, but the overly difficult game play and poor controls keep the game from being much fun for casual mech fans or anyone new to the series.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A decent game that's best played in the story "Life" mode.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Simple and fun action.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    A slight update to an already classic game that doesn’t make you forget about the original.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It can provide some fun, especially its two-player cooperative mode, but it lacks the options and polish of the other action RPGs available.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    A decent game that's best played in the story "Life" mode.

    The controls were too loose for a game like this.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The gameplay is not meant for people looking for a realistic racing simulator, but rather the newbie looking for something fun and simple to get rolling with.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Definitely worth a look, but gets a bit repetitive with the actual gameplay.
    • 61 Metascore

    More mature gamers will find themselves a little underwhelmed, but on its own it's a nice looking, nice sounding, and fairly fun title.

    If you are looking for the next Grand Theft Auto for PSP, this is not it. The main story mode falls short and fails to deliver, but the additional modes add a lot of content and provides you with something to do, no matter your mood or amount of time available.
