The game is a by-the-numbers action adventure game, with a heavy focus on
button-mashing combat, plenty of item collection, some light platforming, and
some even lighter puzzle-solving.
With the exception of the medieval-themed high school, most of the game
takes place in conventional fairytale locales, pitting you against pirates,
witches, gargoyles, enchanted trees, and loads of generic thugs.
In addition to the big, green, ill-tempered ogre Shrek, you'll play as Donkey,
Puss in Boots, Arthur, Fiona, and Sleeping Beauty at different points in the game.
