Summary: For people expecting a game with a great co-op story mode like Shrek 2 had turn back now! Shrek 3 only has co-op mini games, the main story is single player only. Besides that the game itself is really short, I knocked it over in a couple of hours today. If you want 1000 quick and easy Achievement points this game is for you, but if you want an involved and well made game, look elsewhere. I'd recommend this game to kids, or people who are huge fans of Shrek movies.
Summary: Ok, so I know this is a kids game. The game itself is not very enjoyable and my kids quit playing it after 30 minutes, probably to never be played again. The graphics are sloppy, the controls are horrendous. In mid jumps the camera angles change so you have to be prepared to reverse your controls in mid jump, or fall to your doom. The voice actors are very terrible, none of which sound remotely similar to the characters from the shows.
Summary: I've definitely played better games, but I don't think it completely sucks. I was entertained and my kids seem to like it well enough. We have a lot of 360 games and it doesn't get played nearly as often and as most of the others, but I don't feel I wasted money on it or desire to trade it in.
Rated 10+ but determined 5 year old can play with help.

Summary: If you want your preschoolers to play games alone, the mini-games on this disc are good for this. The story game is going to need you on stand-by to help them navigate at times. And since children usually have tenacity to succeed, this game will keep them interested for years when they can replay the game from the start without help. This grandma has found this game fun to play when her then 5.5 year old grandson started playing it.

Summary: I don't know who they made this game for but it wasn't the 4 -5 year old. I thought since this game was about Shrek it would be suitable for little folks. It isn't. There is something about the camera angles on this game that may even the simplest task difficult. The game mechanics stink! My little guy ended up trying to do a simple task (climbing boxes) and fell down so many times I had to do it for him. Did I succeed? No!
Summary: Shrek the Third is a great game. My 4-year-old loves it. She does not get stressed out as it gives her the starting point where she left off if the character croaks. It has an advanced Mario feel while playing. It was easy for her to figure out how to work the buttons and navigate through the levels. I really like this game as it is hard to find an XBOX game that her age level can play. I also enjoy playing the game myself.
