Critical reception[edit]

The game has a Metacritic rating of 49% based on 10 critic reviews.[1]

Console Monster said "Fun while it lasts, quirky and true to the Shrek films. "[2] TeamXBox said " The gameplay is fun, but not nearly groundbreaking and unlikely to provide hours and hours of entertainment. The graphics are sharp, but nothing that’ll put the Xbox 360 at risk of overheating because the processors are working too hard. "[3] IGN said " Shrek-N-Roll is more boredom and mundane than fun and exhilarating, even for diehard fans of all three Shrek films. "[4] MS Xbox World said " If you’re thinking of picking up Shrek N Roll you’ve got to take into consideration that you don’t get your 800 points worth. It’s the short single player, the flawed multiplayer, the challenging for the average child difficulty and the shallow game play that bring this game down. "[5] Eurogamer said " The gameplay is repetitive - not a problem for puzzle games if they also have an addictive quality, but Shrek-N-Roll just doesn't. "[6] GamesRadar said " Even as a diversion for the younger set, this game just doesn't have any staying power. "[7] Official Xbox Magazine said " Local co-op play requires constant communication and generates some small excitement, but isn't enough to make Shrek-n-Roll more than an overpriced novelty."[8] Gaming Excellence said " It is fun for the first few levels until you realize that it’s all the same and not particularly imaginative. "[9] Xbox World 360 Magazine UK said "We'll go easy on it for being a kids' game, but it's certainly not a good one. "[10] X-ONE Magazine UK said "Shrek is now dead to us, which is a shame; it all started so well."[11]
