Shrek Super Slam
Welcome back to the
world of Shrek and a great addition to the party game genre. First
things first, this game is easy to get into and have a ton of fun with a
group of friends. The premise for the game is pretty simple: Donkey and
Dragon have had kids called Dronkeys and the little tykes won’t go to
sleep. Donkey has invited the gang over to watch the television and so
to get the kids to sleep, they tell them stories that you get to fight
your way through as all of the fantastic bunch of characters that make
up the Shrek universe.
you are lucky enough to own more than one console and the other is a
GameCube then you might be drawing conclusions between Super Smash Bros:
Melee and SuperSlam. But they are two very different games. The gameplay
mode on SuperSlam is a bit slower and sluggish without quite the feeling
of precision or control that you might expect of a game of this nature.
single player storyline is fairly fun but ridiculously short, however
the storyline and the stuff that is presented by way of cutscenes etc.
is very fun and will make most gamers have a chuckle.
Graphically the title is pleasing to the eye and the characters are all
faithfully rendered in the likeness of their on screen counterparts.
Sometimes the framerate suffers a bit on the PS2 when there is a lot of
activity on the screen and the controls are a bit unwieldy but in terms
of just smash and bash fun, this is one the family and friends can just
jump straight into and enjoy.
Environments are lavishly designed and are the high point to the title.
There are all sorts of arenas to duke it out on and elements that will
allow you to enjoy gameplay like that found on a platforming title with
multiple levels to fight on. The special attacks are humorous and the
SuperSlam itself a fantastic way to deal out the pain and do some real
damage to your opponents.
