The big Scottish green guy's back, and someone wants to make the poor blighter king. Even more unfortunate than the promise of looming monarchy, however, is the fact that Prince Charming has taken it upon himself to invade the kingdom of Far Far Away with an army of villains at his back. Let the next twisted fairy tale in the Shrek series commence!
Shrek the Third takes the form of an action brawler, setting Shrek and his ragtag bag of buddies on the road to saving the kingdom. Fans have a range of characters to choose from, including the green ogre himself, Donkey, Puss-in-Boots, Fiona, Fiona's rebellious cousin Arthur Pendragon and her fellow fairytale belle, Sleeping Beauty.
Players will need to rescue pals, tackle Charming's less than charming henchmen, gather fairytale collectibles and get into boss skirmishes. Each character has his or her own special moves to get to grips with, including Shrek's Ogre Power, Fiona's Flying Kick, Puss N' Boots somewhat non-threatening sounding Cute Puss, Sleeping Beauty's even more non-threatening sounding Swoon attack, and Artie's Power of Excalibur.
Also thrown in for good measure are six multiplayer mini games, dubbed Castle Attack, Shrekleboard, Frog Herder, Shooting Gallery, Catacombs Leap and Ships Ahoy.
