The game is shockingly good

I could not believe my eyes when I launched this masterpiece, my eyes were pleasantly surprised to see the most amazing version of everyone's favourite ogre, Shrek, If you're a fan of the films (lets be honest who isn't) this game will knock your socks off with its amazing narrative and graphics, the voice actors are the same ones from the film except they are totally different people who sound nothing like them which is good for variety, this game has mild jokes which some people might find distressing in this age of political correctness, for example one time shrek says, I get hit by the same bike every morning, It's a vicious cycle (pls don't hurt me, its only joke lololol) Anyway back to the masterpiece, I believe every school should give out copies of this game to every student as it teaches amazing messages about friendship and politeness, it also teaches lessons about ogre anatomy, for example ogres are like onions, they have layers, this game is not for the mild at heart however, this is why I am rating it 15 and up as the great lord Callum Adams preached in his holy book, thou shalt not calleth me a tic tac, this is echoed throughout the game by its messages of exceptions, the violence is very heavy, for example when the big gingerbread man gets melted in the water, this is very graphic and distressing for very young children

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
