Summary: If you like a simple task type game where you drag and drop things onto the screen and then sit back and watch the action you might like it..for me I got bored with it in a hurry. I tried to play it for several nights but ended up falling asleep while playing it instead..I think for the younger child or for someone to play fro 10 minutes a day it might be alright but for longer periods you might find that it get boring...
Summary: As an adult who regularly games, I bought Shrek the Third for my ds, thinking this would be entertaining enough to deal with my spouts of cabin fever. Well, it started out ok, graphics are nicely done (almost just like the movie itself), and it does make use of both ds screens occasionally. Donkey does the narration his way, and it's a little hard to follow, as reading the words is a bit hard to do while listening to him ramble on.
Summary: Other reviews on here..... implied that there was not a lot of reading within this game, so I bought it for my almost 5 year old child. The game itself is cute, but there is a lot of reading to do in order to advance. Dont buy for a child that is in the 4-6 year range. I do recommend Shrek Carnival Craze DS for that age group.
Excerpt: The game follows shrek, Artie and Puss in Boots as they head back to the castle of Far Far Away that the evil Prince Charming has taken over. Along the way they must collect golden faries for Merlin the wizard, as Donkey accidently used Merlin's wand and turned him into a parfait - what??? Anyway, Shrek, Artie and Puss in boots go through the levels together. You play all three of them, switching between them at the touch of the stylus. Each has their own special moves.
Excerpt: Shrek The Third is a 3rd person adventure platform game, released on the nintendo DS in 2007 to coinside with the 3rd installment of the game. When Shrek was sent on a mission to locate Fiona's cousin Artie who was next in line to be the King of Far Far Away, the evil Prince Charming took over the palace and has left Shrek, Artie, Puss in Boots and Donkey stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Excerpt: I didnt really enjoy this game, as I found it annoying having to bring each character up to speed instead of moving just one character through the game. It means you need to find 3 ways of getting over one obstacle, which is quite irritating after the 20th time. If it was just one character the game would flow more and I think there should be different levels where you can move one character, or have the option to change without having to change constantly.
