|In Shrek the Third, players adventure as Shrek and his friends to save Far
Far Away in a hilariously twisted fairy tale from the movie and beyond. Fans play as
their favorite heroes from the film: Shrek, Donkey, Puss-in-Boots, Fiona, Fiona's
rebellious cousin Arthur and her fellow fairy tale heroine Sleeping Beauty. The game
takes players on an epic journey through the worlds of Far Far Away after Prince
Charming storms the city with an army of villains in order to seize the throne.
Players are challenged to rescue pals, face off against Charming's henchmen, gather
collectibles, test their gaming skills in numerous boss fights and engage in various
single-player and multiplayer mini-games. Gamers interact with characters from the
film as well as new characters exclusive to the game in order to take advantage of
their unique moves, special abilities and combat skills. Players travel through the
epic Shrek universe in 20 peril-filled movie-based and game exclusive levels such as
Academy Grounds, Evil Queen's Castle (game exclusive), Pirate Ship and more. Epic
boss battles draw fans further into the Shrek universe as they defend the kingdom
against Prince Charming and his bumbling band of down and out fairytale friends.
Players learn to utilize each character's special abilities and combat skills including
Shrek's "Ogre Power", Fiona's "Flying Kick", Puss N' Boots "Cute Puss", Sleeping Beauty's
sleeping "Swoon" attack, and Artie's "Power of Excalibur" that must be used successfully
to get back to Far, Far Away. Unique levels with numerous puzzles and platform
challenges including three Princess levels (players play as Fiona and Sleeping Beauty)
challenge gamers to work their way out of difficult situations. Gamers can engage in
six multiplayer mini-games including Castle Attack, Shrekleboard, Frog Herder, Shooting
Gallery, Catacombs Leap and Ships Ahoy.
