Shrek the Third Review

VideoGamer.com
5 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Shrek the Third is your typical movie licensed video game. It follows the story of the movie, features characters from the movie, looks kind of like the movie and is simple enough that even the movie's youngest fans could play through it. Sadly this means it's not a good game. Despite various puzzles (that really only count as puzzles for lack of a better word) and numerous playable characters, Shrek the Third is nothing more than a very basic button bashing beat-em-up.

Shrek the Third

  • Excerpt: Shrek is back! This time he's supported by many of your favorite characters too. Shrek the Third is graphically a very cute game. The story is told via a puppet show. It's not mind blowingly beautiful graphics, but it is quite fun to play and watch. The different levels provide you a variety of terrains to play on and enemies to work against, all of them well detailed.

  • Excerpt: It's the Summer of the trilogy, with Spider-Man 3 kicking it off, followed by Pirates 3, and now Shrek 3. And just like the movie industry, the videogame industry follows the same trend with game iterations of each movie. All were surprised to find out the three aforementioned movies were lackluster, but there wasn't much of that surprise going on when it came down to the games (with the exception of Spider-Man 3).

  • Excerpt: Based on the movie of the same name, Shrek the Third for PlayStation2, Wii, and Xbox 360 doesn't have to work too hard to be as good as the movie because the movie wasn't particularly good in the first place.

Shrek The Third

AV Club
21 May 2007
  • Conclusion: Most movie games reduce feature-film characters to kludge-y cutouts and awkward zombies; Shrek The Third finds a way to keep them alive.
  • Pros: The most—okay, only—innovative scene features Captain Hook leading a musical number, and the song (more or less) syncs up with a fight scene and a chorus line; clobber enough pirates, and the next verse starts.
  • Cons: Some of the maneuvers feel rough around the edges, like jumping for a gold coin outside your sightline, or throwing a small wooden ball at a narrow target.

  • Conclusion: What's perhaps most depressing about Shrek the Third is that the actual quality of the game will have little, if any, bearing on its success. The game seems to operate under the notion that its audience simply isn't concerned with getting an experience that's interesting or inventive, and sadly, it's probably right.
  • Pros: It's got plenty of Shrek in it, if that's your thing.
  • Cons: Combat is simple, tedious, celebrity sound-a-likes are inconsistent, attempts at humor fall flat, fixed camera angle is maddening.
