Shrek the Third is a lazy game that coasts by on the strength of the brand.

Shrek the 3rd

 

Based on the highly successful movie franchise, Shrek the Third offers up a beat-em-up action/adventure with humor suitable for all ages. Covering the third movie in the series, out this past summer, the story mostly follows Shrek, Donkey and...

While the overall experience is pleasant, some of the odd quirks with the camera and game mechanics, as well as the overall lackluster production make this a less than ideal Shrek game and especially a less than ideal 360 game. Recommended for children...

Shrek The Third Review

 

Following the events of the film, Shrek the Third puts you in the shoes of Shrek, Donkey, Puss-in-Boots, and others as they try to find Arthur and get him to be king. Taking cues from, and also satiring, the myths of both Arthur and the fairy tale...

Voice actors from the film chime in, Graphics are generally pleasant, there's some humor to be had here

Animations are jumpy and strange, gliches abound, music is repetitive, game doesn't really know what it is, can't rotate camera, Minigames are dull

The very worst thing about Shrek the Third is that it's quite dull, as you might expect from a game that features a shuffleboard minigame. Anyone over the age of six will be thoroughly unimpressed and move on to better games, like LEGO Star Wars 2. I...

Oops, He Did It Again

The vast majority of consumers will know what to expect from this gamer just by reading the title on the packaging, gamer or non-gamer. Shrek the Third is just another drop in the bucket of Shrek titles and was created as a quick money maker. And just...

Not Your Father's Video Game

It's Shrek!; And Shrek's friends

Except for their voices; Redundant gameplay; Glitchy; Simplistic to a fault

And that's the issue here: Maybe it'll hold a smaller child's attention but that doesn't mean it's a good game. Barney the dinosaur can also enteratain a child, and that's awful. Shrek the Third quickly becomes a chore for even the mildly experienced...

Shrek The Third is basically what you would expect it to be: a half-assed movie license cash-in

Goofy moments will produce laughs ; The difficulty won't frustrate young 'uns ; Shrek sounds like Shrek

Mindless combat ; Narcolepsy-inspired level design ; Mostly grating "humor

Shrek The Third Review

 

Games based on animated family films never quite deliver the goods, cashing in on a hot property with half-baked gameplay more often than not. For all those hoping that the big green ogre's first next-gen outing would be any different, we are sorry to...

The developers did at least take the time to ensure that each of the characters plays noticeably different. Obviously, Shrek being the main attraction means that he is the most effective of the battlers, with Princess Fiona following a distant second...

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...

I have been on record as saying on more than one occasion that movie-based video games have the highest likelyhood of being complete busts. For

There is really not much else that can be said about Shrek the Third, other than it is disappointing to constantly see games that could be enjoyable but fall into the stereotype of bad games based-on movies. Shrek the Third could be fun for some young...

features a few inspired touches, it's ultimately hindered by everything from an annoying camera to repetitive gameplay

Unfortunately, you’ll probably die a number of times while attempting to make your way through the game’s basic platforming sequences, thanks largely to an annoying camera view and lackluster collision detection. There were a number of times when I...
