Though this game is clearly meant for kids, I still enjoyed playing it. It is easy to figure out HOW to do everything, but in some levels (#15 to be exact) it seems nearly impossible to actually DO it. In that particular case, you have to jump from one ledge to another, but it's SUPER HARD to judge just exactly when to hit the button because you'll just fall if you get it wrong. The lighting is bad but was made better once I figured out how to brighten things with my TV remote. There are also some good minigames that I enjoyed.
Good game for the young. Rent it before you buy it

I bought this game for my 9 year old daughter because she is a huge shrek fan. The controls are easy to master. The game has Shrek's humor and is very enjoyable to play. The mini games have held my daughter's interest for over two months now, but I don't think that would be the case for everyone. I was able to defeat the game rather quickly and have no real desire to do so again. A good game for the younger crowd. Rent it and see what you think!
