Shrek SuperSlam deviates from the standard platforming fare of the Shrek series. That said, the game’s combat system is surprisingly fun despite being quite button-mashing friendly. It also retains the Shrek humor found in the previous games.

Shrek Super Slam is a decent 3D melee button masher for the Nintendo DS, but one that lacks enough variety to warrant a purchase. However, if you have a child (age 6 or younger) that loves Shrek, then you really can’t go wrong with this easy to master game. For everyone else, this game will leave you with a dry taste in your mouth after only one hour.

Shrek SuperSlam is a decent attempt at a 3D melee game for the Nintendo DS, especially if you are really into the license. It wears thin pretty quickly though, and the fighting system is repetitive and dull. The multiplayer is fun for a few rounds, but with plenty of other good multiplayer games available on the DS, there's not much reason to play this one.

Kids will be thrilled by what Shrek SuperSlam has to offer. It's not a massive game with a wealth of options; it's just simple fun that anyone can pick up and get into at any time. Although we prefer titles that provide a deeper experience, gamers need at least one piece of software that they can play regardless of the situation. Shrek SuperSlam is that game.

Zwar ist Shrek SuperSlam auf keiner der drei Konsolen ein Überhammer. Wer aber unbedingt mit dem grünen Oger keilen möchte, liegt mit der GameCube-Version am besten. Die bietet nämlich nicht nur 16 Arenen, sondern auch 20 Charaktere von Oger-Fiona bis hin zu Prince Charming. Zum Vergleich: Auf dem DS duellieren sich nur zwölf Spieler, die GBA-Variante ist gerade mal für zehn Prügler.

Wenn man sehr genau hinhört, kann man das Shrek Super Slam verzweifelt singen hören: »Ich wär so gerne Super Smash Bros. Melee…« - tja, schade eigentlich. Die GBA-Version kann man getrost vergessen, sie beitet keinerlei Anreiz, mehr als zehn Minuten mit ihr zu verbringen. Die DS-Fassung ist schon etwas verlockender, gibt sich aber auch alle Mühe, den Spieler schnellstmöglich abzushrecken: ruckelige Grafik mit grob gehauenen Figuren, die sich im Schneckentempo durch die kleinen Levels prügeln. Was mich persönlich am meisten genervt hat, war die Musik: Außer im Story-Modus bekommt man auf dem NDS die ganze Zeit dasselbe eine Musikstück zu hören, welches anfangs noch ganz nett ist - aber schon nach kurzer Zeit geht einem das synthetische Gedudel dank Endlosschleife mörderisch auf den Geist. Gerade auf dem GBA gibt es sehr viele sehr gute Prügelspiele, gegen die Shrek Super Slam schon in der ersten Runde K.O. geht.

Shrek Superslam might look like it could provide a good time. The game has twenty playable characters, interactive 3D environments, and wireless multiplayer. Heck, it even has a decent license; the Shrek movies are funny, and the games usually keep the same sense of humor. It seems that the game had a lot of work put into it -- each character has a lot of moves, and the 3D environments are fairly interactive. However, Shrek Superslam is a lot like the movie the Sixth Sense: compelling until you figure out the answer, at which point you realize you can never sit through it again.

When it comes down to slapping hard earned cash on the table, Shrek SuperSlam simply isn’t worth it. Unpolished gameplay mixes with weak presentation and seemingly unfinished mini-games to create yet another lackluster Shrek product. The environment design is one of the only high points in the game, though the majority of the levels are far too small and in need of a bit more personality. Multiplayer has also been included, though the idea of finding four players that all own copies is a bit much to ask, and no single-cart support is available. The button mashing combat may satisfy younger gamers for a few rounds of play, but even the quick bursts of entertainment wear thin due to shallow design. This one’s better left to the console versions.

Sans surprise aucune, le couple Shrek/jeu vidéo confirme à quel point il est mal assorti mais s'obstine à fermer les yeux de peur d'affronter la triste réalité. Autour d'un concept pauvre se greffe un intérêt inexistant et un contenu aussi maigrelet qu'un moineau anorexique. La bête ne passera pas l'hiver.
