Game Vortex writes: "Shrek Forever After replicates the look of the movie for the most part. Since most of the game is viewed from an overhead angle, you may not be able to instantly tell each screenshot is from a game based on this movie. During cutscenes, sometimes you're given a pre-rendered CG scene, and sometimes you're given the in-game graphics. Honestly, the difference isn't that striking, so you can definitely say they've done well in this department. Donkey's hair is fluffy, Shrek's skin is appropriately bright green, etc. Don't let the screenshots here fool you, however. The game is in overhead view unless you're watching a cutscene."
