Review Although I consider myself a fan of the Shrek franchise, I have never really ventured into the tie-in game marketplace. Given that the movies have always featured such a strong narrative, I haven't felt the need to really augment my movie-going experience by playing the game. However, after playing Shrek Forever After, I have to say that I might have gotten it wrong. Though the game isn't particularly deep, it does nail the movie tie-in formula, and it manages to have a few memorable moments that will delight young players and just may charm some seasoned old-timers as well...The game's plot follows the events fairly explicitly and assumes familiarity with the series. It wastes no time introducing you to Shrek and his friends, so if you've missed the last three movies, you may be lost at the beginning, as the events from the past movies (specifically the first two) affect the story directly. The game opens with the new character of Rumplestiltskin explaining that Shrek's entire life has been wrong, and he shouldn't have married Fiona or started a family. To correct this problem, Rumplestiltskin has Shrek sign a contact which Shrek believes will let him have his life back for one day. However, he ends up in an alternate world where he never met Fiona, and none of his adventures ever happened. The solution? True love's kiss, of course!...The game puts you in charge of the movie's four protagonists: Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, and Puss in Boots. Although only one character will appear on-screen at a time, you can switch between them with the quick press of a directional button. Each character has their own life meter, and they also have a special skill that will help you solve the game's many puzzle levels. Shrek is the heavy lifter of the bunch, Fiona is the incendiary specialist, Puss can reach high areas, and Donkey can? kick...Shrek Forever After is not a game for everyone. However, if you know kids that are interested in the Shrek movies, this is definitely a worthwhile investment. With varied gameplay and solid technical specs, this title is a perfect fit for young or budding gamers, and it fits well with the story of the new movie. Though the game itself isn't very long, there is enough content here for at least ten hours of kid-friendly gameplay.
