Shrek 2 Cutscene
Score distribution:

  1. The bottom line is you won’t find a more fun-filled multiplayer party game for the Xbox; one that rivals "Dungeons and Dragons Hereos," not in sophistication, but in pure enjoyment for the entire family.
  2. It appeals to all gamers of any age, gender, or style of gaming. It has a bit for everyone, action, puzzles, adventure, comedy and it set in a popular film world.
  3. It captures the spirit of Shrek and the world created for him, and seems to have enough of a challenge with learning to use four characters almost at once to provide gamers with something different and fun.
  4. 74
    A good game overall that manages to nail its target audience well but doesn’t provide much to anyone else other than a few hours of distraction from another game.
  5. The jokes cater mostly to the kids, and that's exactly who should enjoy this fairy tale jaunt the most. [July 2004, p.112]
  6. The game is put together pretty well, but the game is very simple and very short. On top of that, the lame wordplay and fart jokes that pass for humor just don't cut it.
  7. That it's over in a few short hours (whatever your abilities) and that everything's very contrived and undemanding is, in fact, rather the point.

    Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
    I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed

    Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
    I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
    She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
    In the shape of an "L" on her forehead
    Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
    Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
    Didn't make sense not to live for fun
    Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
    So much to do, so much to see
    So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
    You'll never know if you don't go
    You'll never shine if you don't glow
    Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
    Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid
    And all that glitters is gold
    Only shooting stars break the mold
    It's a cool place and they say it gets colder
    You're bundled up now, wait till you get older
    But the meteor men beg to differ
    Judging by the hole in the satellite picture
    The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
    The water's getting warm so you might as well swim
    My world's on fire, how about yours?
    That's the way I like it and I never get bored
    Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play
    Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid

    Only shooting stars break the mold

    And all that glitters is gold
    Only shooting stars
    Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas?
    I need to get myself away from this place
    I said yep what a concept
    I could use a little fuel myself
    And we could all use a little change
    Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming

    So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
    You'll never know if you don't go (go!)
    You'll never shine if you don't glow
    Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play

One of the two Shrek games I actually like (The other being Shrek 2 beg for mercy for the GameBoy Advance sp), this title impresses me, and gives me everything I feel fun and necessary in an adventure game. Wow, I've done a lot of reviews of Activision games lately, solely because they are awesome! Expand
