Everyone's favorite ogre busts out the streamers and party hats in a multiplayer minigame-fest on the Nintendo GameCube.
Back of Case - PlayStation 2:
Before a match, as many as four players can choose from one of six playable characters:
Thelonious (a.k.a. Executioner)
Every game involves four characters, with the computer AI taking over any characters not controlled by players. There seems to be no great distinction in how each character plays as compared to the others.
Time for Us to Bug Out
The grand object is to be the first to fill your vial with bug juice. (This idea is soooo Shrek!). The character that comes up with enough of the slimy liquid will be granted a wish. Of course, when playing with fellow gamers, the real prize is a chance to declare yourself supreme champion of Shrek: Super Party.
Each character chooses a path. At the end of each path lies a stash of precious bug juice. You can go it alone or race a fellow contestant down the same path. Each path offers various fairytale settings including a Swamp, Castle, Keep, Farm and Windmill.
Traps and events in each area could land you in the Evil Bog. The only way out of the Evil Bog is slow and laborious, but Pixie Dust lets you warp to safety.
Bug Juice Flows like Water
You gather bug juice by doing well in the 30 minigames. One game challenges you to catapult veggies at a huge target. Another has each player catching rats and then slinging them into the sewer. Team competitions include a castle-themed air hockey game and a fast-paced volleyball game using rotten onions.
The major twist in Shrek: Super Party comes after each minigame. Each player is given a random assortment of colored bugs. Each color is worth a different amount of points but you must match at least two together to get any bug juice. The minigame winners get to swap bugs with the other contestants to maximize their score, but watch out: you might be left with measly leftovers.
The strategy behind the bug trading is a game in itself. The winner of the minigame gets to make the last trade, so you must anticipate his or her moves and trade for bugs you think you can keep. Sometimes keeping less-valuable bugs is better than trying to hang on to the best ones.
The graphics feature the storybook locations from the hit movie. Characters look similar to their movie counterparts but with enlarged heads. They react expressively to what is going on in the game.
Each player has a good view of the action in the minigames, but it's harder to track everyone's location on the game board.
As with most board games, the real fun in Shrek: Super Party comes from playing with others. You'll encounter a good variety of minigames, while the bug-trading feature adds a very Shrek-ish splash of strategy to the mix.
