As you'd expect from a film tie-in, Shrek Forever After is a linear platformer that chronicles and fleshes out the events of the film. You'll throw down on generic fantasy enemies with a selection of punches, butt slams and Shrek's terrifying signature roar... and just when you think that things can't get any more generic, you'll have to engage in some minigames to progress through the levels.
But don't dismiss it just yet, folks... because Shrek Forever After is a fairly capable and entertaining kids game. It's aimed squarely at young Shrek fans- and in fact, it provides an entertaining diversion that'll keep them busy for some time. Combat is very solid and fairly enjoyable, the graphics are fairly impressive and an overworld hub increases replayability by allowing you to return to previously-completed levels.
Basically, Shrek Forever After accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do and delivers a surprisingly decent few hours for film fans. It doesn't break any ground- but it makes a refreshing change from the usual Shrek shovelware.
