Review:
Shrek and Fiona, along with the other characters of the popular movie, must navigate the forest on a journey to meet her parents. They collect coins for extra bonuses and solve many problems as is typical with this kind of game. Teen gamers will probably find it too easy. But pre-teen and younger children kids will be able to dive right in and pick it up quickly, especially with the help of the magic mirror, which offers useful tools for conquering the different levels. Another bonus: the player can switch characters for different points of view.
