Shrek the Third (PlayStation 2)

 

Released just prior to the theatrical debut of Shrek the Third to maximize its synergistic potential, Shrek the Third for the PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii is more compelling as a brand marketing bullet point than it is as an actual video...

Over the years we have seen Shrek in just about every facet of the gaming world. Whether he is burning rubber in a kart racer or getting together with his...

Solid, Fun Beat-Em-Up ; Simple & Addictive ; Great Cast Of Characters

No Co-Op Mode At All ; Presentation Feels Unpolished ; Clipping & Frame Issues

Shrek The Third

 

Shrek and his band of merry misfits have been a staple in Hollywood animation for a few years now. Packed full with more jokes for the parents than the kids the movie pretends to be geared towards, Shrek has become somewhat of a cashcow for Dreamworks...

The summer season of blockbusters brings with it a tide of video game adaptations, which follow the plot as much as a schizophrenic Shakespeare cast. Shrek the Third's reign at the box office has been overshadowed for about a month now, and the console...

A passable platform game ; A pretty nice amount of other modes to tackle

The PS2 controls are not the native scheme and it shows

Overall for a legacy system, this is a pretty decent titles, and becuase the PS2 is in almost every family room in America, I can bet this will be on more than few kid's summer gaming list.

Shrek the Third - ps2

 

While Shrek the Third has many celebrity sound-alike actors for the video game, not many of the actual film actors are on board here. That means there's no Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers, Antonio Banderas or Cameron Diaz to lend their voices to the...

Shrek the Third Review

 

Shrek the Third tries to bring the God of War formula to a younger audience -- with iffy results.

With a good number of chapters to play through and a few multiplayer mini games, there is more than enough to keep the casual gamer busy, but Shrek the Third is not outstanding in any area. It is what it is: a kid's game that misses its target...

Activision delivers a wonderful game for kids, and an "okay" experience for the rest of us..

At the end of the day Shrek The Third is what it is - a simple game geared towards kids. The gameplay isn't difficult or all that challenging but it can be entertaining, particularly in the multiplayer modes. If you are gun-shy about movie licensed...

Shrek the Third

 

It’s the Summer of the trilogy, with Spider-Man 3 kicking it off, followed by Pirates 3, and now Shrek 3. And just like the movie industry, the videogame industry follows the same trend with game iterations of each movie. All were surprised to find out...

 The texture detail is very bland, and it sure would’ve been nice to see a bit more attention to detail in the game. Likewise, for some awkward reason, the framerate stutters quite often – it’s awkward because Shrek the Third is not a hardware...

Shrek the Third

 

Based on the movie of the same name, Shrek the Third for PlayStation2, Wii, and Xbox 360 doesn't have to work too hard to be as good as the movie because the movie wasn't particularly good in the first place.

As a generic, roaming brawler of a game starring iconic ogres and fairy tale sidekicks, enchanted trees and un-charming princes, Shrek the Third for PlayStation2, Wii, and Xbox 360, contains most of the mean-spirited maliciousness and murderousness of...

Shrek the Third review

 

The second I unwrapped the package that Shrek the Third came in, I told myself to go into the game expecting the typical licensed video game experience. I could assume there would be an engine similar to those found in critically acclaimed games of the...

In the end, it’s hard to recommend Shrek the Third to anyone but devoted fans of the film or younger children. It is hard to justify spending $60 on a game that simply wasn’t put together very well or with a lot of care. Skip this one, buy the kids...
