Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

One of my favorite childhood games!

This is a great game that is very kid-friendly and has a great message to it, too. Like the movie, Shrek has signed a contract with Rumpelstiltskin to get his old life back as an ogre “when the world made sense,” and realizes that he got ripped off. Then, he is off to get a refund on his deal with Rumpelstiltskin. There is a lot of cartoon violence, since there are a lot of fights in which Shrek, Donkey, Fiona, and Puss in Boots participate. Despite this violence, there is no blood. This game is easy to play and understand, and there are not a lot of controls to get adjusted to. Every character except for Rumpelstiltskin and the other villains serve as a positive role model and the premise of the whole game of Shrek getting his life with Fiona back is a positive message. This is definitely a great game for kids and adults like me who played it years ago and who like to revisit old childhood memories.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much consumerism
age 2+

Alphabet fun
