Following the film's lead, Shrek Forever After - The Game is a bounding action adventure which takes you on a quest to defeat the wicked Rumpelstiltskin and his army. Blending a mixture of puzzle solving, treasure collecting and smashing a variety of enemies with fists, hooves and swords, the various lands of Far Far Away are yours to travel through.
Success rests on your ability to make use of Shrek and his companions' unique powers and skills. As well as dispatching foes with their regular attacks, each character also has a special move to temporarily stun enemies, from the disarmingly cute purr of Puss In Boots to Donkey's painful singing voice.
Each of the heroes also has a set of abilities to help solve the tricky puzzles you'll encounter. For example, Shrek can move heavy objects, Fiona can light explosive barrels without harm, Donkey can kick open gates and other items and Puss has the agility to climb up walls and leap across pillars. It's a nice gameplay element that breaks up the fun fighting in fine fashion, made all the better by areas which require ability upgrades and special items to progress and unlock previously inaccessible areas.
Diverse, challenging and fun, Shrek Forever After - The Game offers a monstrously good time for fans of the film series and anyone just looking for a rampaging romp through the fairy tale land of Far Far Away.
