Shrek Forever After Video Game



We recently received the Wii version of the video game, Shrek Forever After, created by Activision. Talk about excited kids! My 12 year old daughter and my 5 year old son actually found themselves agreeing on something --which rarely ever happens anymore. They both wanted to play their new game immediately. My three year old was right behind them, ready to play along as best he could.

I have to admit I am not such a big fan of video games, even Wii (shocking, I know) but with Summer beginning its' long lazy days, kids full of energy and a new Shrek game to try out, who was I to be a party-pooper? So we loaded up the Wii, ad let the fun begin. It actually turned out to be a very fun time, and all 3 kids were laughing and having fun. Together. Amazing.

About the game:

Shrek has decided he wants to 'recapture' his past as a real ogre. He is tricked into signing a magical deal that lands him in an alternate reality. Now he has to get back by defeating the devious Rumplestiltskin.

Up to 4 players can play the game as Shrek, Fiona, Puss 'N Boots and Donkey try to outwit Rumplestiltskin.

The game was pretty easy to play, which was a pleasant surprise for me. A green arrow helps the kids, especially the younger ones, move along. Plus there are also hints kindly provided by the Blind Mice (fun!). Each of the 4 characters has special talents to help them as they deal with Rumplestiltskin. There are various problem-solving tasks that need to be completed before passing to the the next level.

Shrek Forever After is available now – for the Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
