Conclusion: Positives and constructive criticism are welcomed in the comments, but bear in mind that I only spent a few hours on this review so it may not be as polished as some of my other reviews, as I wanted to keep it shorter than my normal reviews. My reviewing scale: 1 Star: 0 - 2.4. 2 Stars: 2.5 - 4.9. 3 Stars: 5 - 6.9. 4 Stars: 7 - 8.9. 5 Stars: 9 - 10.
Excerpt: About a week ago my daughter and I headed down to the nearest IMAX movie theater and took in Shrek Forever After. Rumored to be the final installment of the franchise, Shrek Forever After left us both convinced we had seen the best Shrek film yet. So if this was indeed the last entry, they finished with a bang in my view. A few days after we had seen the movie Shrek Forever After, the game, arrived at my home office.
Excerpt: Cooperative family games are a great way to get kids and their parents playing together.

Summary: Shrek Forever After continues the trend of Shrek movie tie-in games that'll litter up the bargain bins for years to come. Its promises of family multiplayer fun fail to materialise, leaving this as yet another stinky movie tie-in game.
Pros: Follows the movie plot closely

Summary: Activision и тайваньская студия XPEC снова попали в яблочко: после Kung Fu Panda (там тайваньцы делали все версии, кроме РС) они выпустили уже вторую замечательную игру по мотивам горячего голливудского мультика. Драки тут, правда, не такие сочные, как в «Панде», нет QTE и полетов верхом на цапле, но зато есть забавные способности героев и неплохие упражнения для мозгов.
Excerpt: Shrek Forever After – eller på dansk Shrek den Lykkelige – bliver sandsynligvis en af sommerens største biografsucceser, når den animerede film får premiere i starten af juli måned. Et computerspil er det naturligvis også blevet til, og Shrek Forever After er faktisk ikke så ringe endda. Vi har at gøre med fægtekampe og gåder i en rimelig skøn forening, og spillet er en god mulighed for at samle hele familien foran fladskærmen – her i sommervarmen!
