An easy game to pick up and play, but unless you're a big fan of the license there isn't much to keep you playing.

The humor is much more appealing to younger players, but the graphics, sound and action combine for an entertaining, if not irreverent, trip into Shrek's world. While good, this game translates better, control-wise, on the home console platforms.
