  1. The game has a great presentation, coupled with enjoyable combat and puzzles and good use of the touch screen.
  2. A charming title that is fun, challenging, and perfect for the entire family. It mixes action and combat with a bit of puzzle solving and does a great job of promoting teamwork, an important value for the kids this game hopes to target.
  3. Graphically, Shrek the Third is top-notch, offering superb 3D environments that are displayed on each DS screen. There’s an attention to detail in all of the varied environments that bring the world of Shrek to life.

    The degree of challenge and polish never quite ramps up to where it ought to be, but Shrek the Third is a good time nonetheless. [July 2007, p.93]
  5. Juggling the different characters' abilities is interesting, though some may not like the repetition or the game's gradual pace.
  6. 65
    Although the touch screen controls are irritating at times, you may just find yourself enjoying Shrek in spite of them.
  7. A pretty but repetitive puzzle-based adventure, Shrek the Third feels more like completing a series of chores than having monster-sized fun.

    This game is one of the few DS games that use almost every feature of the DS. The only thing that isn't used is Select. However, my game-playThis game is one of the few DS games that use almost every feature of the DS. The only thing that isn't used is Select. However, my game-play experience was enjoyable (except in the hard/tedious bits) and really appreciate the ambition. This, in my opinion, is the definitive version of Shrek The Third, including the movie! Expand
