Mortal Kombat Gone Shrek

I saw, and loved the movie. I expected this game to be somewhat of an action adventure, with the ability to switch characters and solve puzzles. Picture the image of Shrek being able to belly-bash, and the donkey being able to jump and bray. What I got was basically just a fighting game, ala Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter. The game itself is good, but all you get to do, is play as many different characters and fight best of three rounds. It has special moves to learn, and is a decent fighting game, but nothing more. You just need to take this into account, and if you like that idea, then buy it, if not....it might be good for a rent.

Not even a challenge for a 7 year old

We were so fired up to finally be getting the Shrek Game Boy game. My son has really enjoyed all of his games and has gotten really good at them. But, just imagine my surprise when I saw him with tears streaming down his face after just a few minutes of playing. My first reaction was to remind him that it will take some practice to get better. His response to me was "It's just a fighting game." He even had his own ideas of how it could have been better, (ie. more puzzle levels, jumping, ala Mario). I take blame for this one. I didn't read the back of the box. I assumed........and you know...... There are lots of great games out there. Save your money on this one.

Well, I Guess It's Okay

As a fan of the movie, I was pretty disapointed by this game. It's not bad, but it's nothing special. There's also no strategy to it at all. Punch, kick, jump, repeat and you beat the game. Even if you're a fan of the movie, rent this first.

this game is awsome!

Shrek: Fairy Tale Freakdown is the first Shrek fighting game, and it was pretty good. You get to play as one of several Shrek 1 characters and make your way through the various levels, beating the snot out of your opponents all the way. This game was okay, but a little too hard and repetitive. Still, you should rent it. It's not quite good enough to buy.

Really Bad!

If you've seen the movie, you may be tempted to go buy this game but don't. It is a fighting game that has nothing to do with the movie. It is extremely boring and is not fun at all. Trust me! Do yourself a favor and save your money!!

1. Shrek
2. Princess Fiona
3. Dragon
4. Ginger Bread Man
5. Lord Farquad
6. Thelonius
7. Monsieur Hood
8. Pinnochio
9. Big Bad Wolf

For all you Donkey fans bad news. Hes not a fighter. Sucks huh?

I loved the movie! It is hillarious and very heart touching. This game however is not. It has nothing to do with the movie. It's just select a player and fight. It took me 5 min. to beat it with Shrek as my character! 5 min? That's like a school passing period. If you want a good Shrek game, just wait for the Xbox version. Untill now, save your money.

Fun Game!

This is the worst game I ever played. I was so excited to play it but then when I played the game I was sad because you just fight. When I was gonna fight the gingerbread man I said to myself that it's not fair because I wrote the password correctly but I didn't beat the gingerbread man and I can't shoot but the gingerbread man can shoot so I said it was not fair so I started to cry and I also said this is the worst game I ever played in my whole life!
