Excerpt: A lot of people loved Shrek 2. I wasn't one of those people. I thought it was funny, just the way slapstick scenarios and fart gags are funny at the time, but hardly qualify as enduring humour.
Summary: Parents need to know that while this is an "E"-rated game, it still employs a lot of beat-'em-up action. Players karate-chop or punch cute-looking animals, peasants, rats, Merry Men, knights and a host of other "baddies.
Excerpt: Movie licensed games have been caught in a strange shift lately. In the past, whenever a movie tie-in was released, it was a pretty safe bet that the game would quickly find itself at the bottom of the bargain bin.
Excerpt: When it comes to videogames, movie tie-ins are a dime a dozen. They're generally like the rest of the marketing swag that gets brought out to the stores - a flash-in-the-pan that takes the 15 minutes of fame to garner sales, only to have the excess gather dust in the discount bin for years to come.
Pros: Good use of a license, Hero Time breaks up the main game with minigames, You can play with up to four people
Cons: Graphics have some rough edges, Camera and A.I. issues in certain instances, More for the casual or younger market
Excerpt: The whole crew is back in this wonderful sequel. Based on the feature film, Activision’s Shrek 2 guides you through the scenery of the new movie and gives you an inside look into the fantasy of being Shrek, Princess Fiona, Donkey and others.
Excerpt: Developed by Luxoflux and published by Activision, "Shrek 2" loosely follows the formula for a movie-licensed game, but misses the target here and there, creating an oddly misshapen adventure.
Conclusion: Overall, SkyGunner is a solid choice for those wanting a light-hearted anime styled and action packed flying shooter. Definitely recommended for fans of arcade shooters and flight sim buffs. Atlus has also opened up the official website for SkyGunner .
Conclusion: Shrek 2 kann sich durchaus in die Kategorie ‚Gute Filmspiele’ einordnen. Der Titel bietet viel Abwechslung, gepaart mit einer großen Portion Witz. Besonders spaßig ist der Mehrspieler-Modus, indem bis zu drei menschliche Spieler mit Euch die Gegner verkloppen können.
Pros: detaillierte Umgebungen, stimmige Soundkulisse, viele Minispiele, grandiose MultiplayerAction
