Shrek Forever After

If you enjoyed the latest Shrek movie from Dreamworks you’re going to enjoy the new Shrek Forever After video game from Activision available in all game formats.
Playable as a single player or in groups of four, Shrek Forever After lets Shrek and his friends (Fiona, Puss In Boots and Donkey) travel between two realities while they solve puzzles, fight Rumplestiltskin’s army and gain experience and skills.


Playing the game is like watching the movie: special effects, animation and environments are crisp and full of detail and almost match the quality of the computer animation used in the film.


Players’ response times, movements and interaction with other characters is smooth with no lag time, funky overlaps or unnecessary awkward moves. Follow Shrek as he suddenly finds himself in a wickedly twisted version of his reality where ogres are hunted, Rumplestiltskin is ruler, no one knows who Shrek is and nothing is as Shrek remembers it.
Shrek must set things right, find his true love and save his friends. Each character has their own unique abilities and with perseverance can obtain coins to acquire new skills and upgrades. It’s a unique Ogre opportunity to make Shrek’s fairy tale have a happy ending. Shrek Forever After is rated E10 for cartoon violence comic mischief and mild lyrics.
