I'm all Shreked out. I admit it.
I haven't seen the new movie nor do I want to (and thankfully neither do the kids). I can tell you that the game's plot mirrors the movies a little, so I don't want to spoil it for those of you who plan to visit your favorite Ogre at the theater.
In the game, which is well done, you can play as Fiona, Donkey, Puss In Boots and the ol' green guy himself.
And once you pick your character, each with his or her special abilities, you jump into the game.
Now married, Shrek wants to go back to the days when he lived by the swamp and was feared. He signs a deal with Rumpelstiltskin to give him one day as a dreaded monster, only he's tricked. He can't come back until he earns a "true love's kiss" and he's sent to a new reality where he's never met his wife, Fiona.
Your job now is to hook up with all your old friends and woo Fiona. You must also stomp Rumpelstiltskin from taking over the kingdom in the real world.
There are 11 levels of game play and collect coins to advance your way to a final battle
What's cool is four player mode. You and your friends can team up against your enemies and each use your skill: Shrek can move heavy stuff, Puss N Boots can climb up anything like Spider Man; Fiona sets stuff on fire and Donkey has a super kick.
Best of all the game is easy to pick up and play, and rather fun.
