Shrek the Third Review

21 April 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 (Wii) Review

24 June 2007
  • 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.

  • Pros: • Does a good job of translating the characters of the movie to the game
  • Cons: • Controls make combat and fighting difficult

Official Nintendo Magazine
2 January 2008
  • 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.

Expert Review

18 March 2009
  • 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).
