Game Overview

Hit Shrek 2 and lead a merry, motley band of unlikely heroes to save the day! Joined by your friends--you can choose from 10 in all--you will adventure through dwarven mines, giant castles and haunted forests. Playing in single-player story mode, your friends can join you at any time for 4-player co-operative play. In ''Hero Time'' play in a host of mini-games designed for each hero character. Fantastic graphics and fantastical environments will transport you straight into Shrek's hilarious world of fairy tale parody.

The Bottom Line

Game based on the second movie, developed by the makers of Vigilante 8. Shrek is on a journey to meet his in-laws, so Shrek 2 follows his adventure to Far Away Land and the chaos that ensues once Fiona's parents learn that their precious daughter is an ogre -- and is married to the crudest of them all. Shrek 2 features a mixture of puzzle solving and enemy bashing. Players are able to control one of four characters at any given time -- swapping between them at will. Each character has a set of basic attack moves and a special ability. Donkey has a "Burro Blast" that can knock down large objects, Shrek can pick up and throw heavy objects, and Fiona -- in a nod to her fight scene in the first movie -- can slow down time, Matrix-style.

The game is put together pretty well, but the game is very simple and very short. On top of that, the lame wordplay and fart jokes that pass for humor just don't cut it.

For the comedy alone, Shrek 2 is a must-play.

An amusing jaunt into the world of the movie. It doesn't require a lot of skill and there isn't a cohesive story, but I couldn't stop playing it.

GREEN: the color that you'll hurl after buying Shrek's latest video game venture.

Simple puzzle and combat fare. An awful camera system. Mediocre visuals and sounds. This is Shrek 2.
