Excerpt: The Nintendo DS version of Shrek Forever After is based on the movie. Shrek is running ragged as a father, and husband. He wishes he could have just one more day of fun and excitement. So he makes a deal, and signs a contract. Unfortunately he does not pay close enough attention.
Conclusion: Shrek Forever After is a respectable side offering that should satisfy fans of the movie, and it's also got a fun, little multiplayer component to keep younger gamers going long after the adventure ends. Unfortunately, the adventure ends all too soon.

Summary: Parents need to know that Shrek Forever After , the video game based on the movie of the same name, stays true to the spirit of the Shrek film in that it is chock full of cartoony violence, has a fair sprinkling of crude humor, and is -- underneath it all -- a very sweethearted, endearing story.
