Excerpt: The Dreamcast was a very good console. Unfortunately, it suffered commercially. Its software support was weak – success in this area seems to be gauged by quantity – but from what was released came amazing shining pearls. Worthy of a serious mention is Power Stone – a totally original beat-em-up set in a completely intractable environment. It was a huge leap sideways out of a box where traditional fighters were set.
Excerpt: Shrek Super Slam 's graphics look very much like the Shrek movies. The character models are highly accurate and nicely detailed, some of the moves were obviously patterned after fight scenes from the movies, and moves that aren't taken directly from the films seem natural for the characters and show a judicial use of creative license. The sound effects and voice work in Shrek Super Slam sound just like the actors from the Shrek movie.
Conclusion: Shrek will never be my favourite character, and quite frankly, neither will this title. But the action-packed gaming style had my 11-year-old brother hooked for hours on end, bragging that he was better than me and that he had unlocked more stuff. 'Nuff said.
Summary: Shrek Superslam is a game which both youngsters and older gamers will both enjoy. Single player is good but this game is much more fun when in multiplayer. All that at a bargain price of $69.95.
