  1. The best thing about this is the fact that every task, adventure and puzzle is fun and entertaining. It’s a fast paced game that is enjoyable for all ages.

    The voice acting is so good gamers will think it's actually the original cast. [Aug 2004, p.7]
  3. The main drawback to Shrek 2 is its slightly flaky in-game camera feature, which does not always let you see the action from the best angles.
  4. The jokes cater mostly to the kids, and that's exactly who should enjoy this fairy tale jaunt the most. [July 2004, p.112]
  5. 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.
  6. Electronic Gaming Monthly

    Those who have long since retired their Shrek-themed bedsheets will find the game easy and repetitive [July 2004, p.94]
  7. Though the objectives are overly simple and quite repetitive, the game is well programmed with decent graphics and a solid pace, and the cooperative aspect should make for many lively slumber parties. Just don’t expect it to keep the grown-up ogres entertained for long.

SOMEHOW managed to top shrek 1 the video game. Whilst playing this game, my mother saw me playing it and she instantly collapsed on her knees, and began crying over simply seeing the insane, realistic graphics that are held within this compact cd. I cried nightly for a year because my brain could not even function due to playing this beautiful gift shrek has blessed upon this humble planet. 10/10 would let game penetrate shrektum. Expand

    Un juego cooperativo de los muchos que hicieron de películas en la ya clásica PS2.

    Gráficamente cumple para ser un juego del 2004 pese a qué no sea regular en este aspecto, también la cámara a veces te traiciona y hace que pierdas por momentos el hilo de la situación.

    La jugabilidad es mejorable hay cierto impud lag en alguna que otra pantalla sobretodo en las de plataformas es donde se hace más evidente.

    La campaña sigue la trama más o menos de la película con obviamente cambios para que sea todo más jugable.

    Un fallo grande que tiene es que no tiene los dobladores originales de las películas y eso se nota muchísimo al ser tan icónicos.

    Pero aún así este juego cumple bastante bien su cometido, es divertido en su apartado cooperativo que al final es lo importante.
