Even as far as movie-based games are concerned, Shrek titles do not have a good reputation. TDK Mediactive had the license first, and used it to churn out some of the worst movie-based games in history. DreamWorks then wisely handed it off to Activision, who did much better work and brought the franchise up to typical movie-based standards (decent, not great). Shrek the Third certainly does nothing to improve the franchise's standing, but it's not a bad way for a Shrek fan to spend a few hours nevertheless.
