Overall: An enjoyable main character in SOME interesting settings. The makers did a good job maintaining the look and feel of the movie, even some of the humour, but ware not able to put it together into a cohesive game.

Gameplay: The game play appeal is sadly fairly low. Shrek seems targeted to younger players by it's look, but as soon as you begin to play you realize that even full grown - experienced gamers are going to have difficulty with many of the puzzles. The next problem that will probably sour many young gamers on Shrek it the fact that the control scheme is fairly difficult, and not at all suited for little hands as you have to pretty much use the whole controller. Finally, there are far too many problems with the camera. All third-person games seem to suffer from this to some degree but this is definately one of the most problematic I've run across since Tomb Raider 2 for the PC.

Graphics: There is no question that the visuals are the one true bright spot in Shrek. It really does look like you are playing a well animated computer generated cartoon.

Audio: The sound is good, but frankly nothing special. Although my 5 year old son did find the Shrek's farting and burping to be a riot.

Suggestions: My suggestion would simply be to pay more attention to who you are making the game for. If you are making a game for kids than the puzzles and the controls need to be simplified. If, on the other hand you are going to make a game for adults, you are not going to be able to get away with technical faults like the camera problems, and you are going to have to make the missions more varied.

Overall Score: 5.0 / 10
