Rating: 3 out of 5
Before or after enjoying the film in theaters, you can take control of the action in Shrek Forever After on your Wii. The storyline in the game roughly follows that of the movie. In the game, you will get to play as Shrek, Fiona, Donkey and Puss in Boots.
Gang of Four
Shrek Forever After for the Wii is an action adventure game where you follow a large green arrow towards a goal point, fighting enemies and solving puzzles along the way. Each of the four characters you control has a special ability for fighting and for clearing away obstacles. Shrek can move heavy objects, Puss can climb, Donkey can kick down doors or knock things loose, and Fiona likes to set things on fire.
All characters can fight with basic attacks and each has their own special move that distracts or stuns the enemies. You can upgrade the characters strength, defense and special ability as you play.
Shrek Forever After is not too long of a game. However, the dialogue and voice acting is pretty funny to listen to and you can always play the game again in co-op with up to four players in total. Since each will take one of the four characters, you will need to work together to beat the game, but you can still compete with each other as you are able to steal coins from each other.
The game is not hard at all and is great for younger fans of Shrek, the Three Blind Mice are there for hints if you need them. The controls are pretty good and easy to learn. Although the game is a bit on the short side, co-op adds to the game and there are even some puzzles and treasure chests that you cannot get by yourself, encouraging a second play through with a friend or two.
