Shrek-N-Roll Review (X360)

By Sophia Tong () - 5.0 out of 10

If you just can't get enough of that loveable green ogre, here's an opportunity to have all your favorite characters from the Shrek movies in one puzzle game. Movie related games aren't usually considered the best of the batch and Shrek-n-Roll is no exception. Granted, this is an Xbox Live Arcade game that costs around ten dollars, but even then, I want my ten dollars worth. Read More.
