What Gamespot Users have to say about Shrek 2

  • Review Score:7.5

    The movie was fun and full of laughs, the game will bring probably half of that.

    While a little boring at times, this game can still be pretty enjoyable. You play as many of the Shrek characters, including Gingerbread Man, Puss in Boots, and Fiona, as you try to make your way to Far Far Away and defe... Read Full Review

    The film was a great laugh. This, however, is a bit of a disappointment.

    Everyone who's anyone has seen the Shrek movies. They are a good laugh, child or adult alike. Shrek topped the U.S and U.K charts and was great. Shrek 2 surpassed it in almost every conceivable way, and this is the game ... Read Full Review

    It's a common site nowadays to see a game coming along with every major movie release. This year, we've had Spiderman 2 (which is one of the best games of 2004), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Catwoman and now... Read Full Review

    Nice try but no cigar!

    I had gone over to my friends house. And when night time rolled around we brought the PS2 down to the basement. He suggested we play the Shrek 2 game. Besides Star Wars I've found that most video games made off of movies... Read Full Review

    Game for any fan of the movie...and little kids, only...

    This game is actually not as bad as people say. But it's not amazing or awesome either. It's just a regular game with okay graphics, voices that are NONE like the actors' in the movie, and the gameplay is just like hack-... Read Full Review

    The worst movie game ever.

    They better not make a Shrek 3 game, because this one was a pile of junk. The graphics are mediocre, for PS1 standards. The sound is horrible, mainly because it never changes. the people try to make jokes, but they fail ... Read Full Review
