Summary: Parents need to know that this game is based on the Shrek movie franchise and takes place after the events of the Shrek the Third movie. It will make a lot more sense if the player is familiar with the movies. The game is a nonviolent care-giving simulation that focuses on babysitting Shrek and Fiona's ogre triplets and Donkey's five dronkey children.
Excerpt: Shrek: Ogres and Dronkeys falls into an ever-growing genre in todays gaming market; that of the non-game. While it may be a paradox in itself, the name refers to simulation titles that dont fit the mould of what would be classed as your typical game; the likes of Nintendogs, Animal Crossing and The Sims are all included under this banner. Despite overwhelming commercial success they prove to be a point of contention among gamers as a love or hate affair.
