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.
Excerpt: With the recent release of Shrek the Third, Shrek mania has once again come into full swing. The release of the third movie in the popular Shrek franchise has led to mass commercialization of the Shrek band name, and you will find it a difficult task to go a day without seeing some sort of Shrek related advertising or promotion. Be it a fast food franchise or various toys, Shrek is as popular as ever at the moment.
Summary: Shrek The Third will take players on an all-new adventure filled with fun and exciting new challenges, never-before-seen characters and environments, plus the same humor we've come to love from Shrek and the gang.
Excerpt: Shrek is back and his debut on Wii is, like the film, a bit of a mixed bag. It's technically solid enough to work as a kiddie-pleasing movie tie in, but for real gamers, or people that expect a little something special from their Wii, it has absolutely nothing going for it.
Excerpt: Shrek war mal etwas ganz Besonderes, Inspirierendes, Humorvolles und hat Spaß gemacht ohne Ende. Wie bei vielen Fortsetzungen hat sich das erfolgreiche Prinzip auch bei Shrek der Dritte nicht ganz ohne Abnutzungserscheinungen durchhalten lassen, und der Film versinkt im Mittelmaß (siehe auch unsere Filmkritik).
