Shrek 2 delivers on this promise, without being slavishly devoted to the plot details of the movie sequel it is based on.

 Shrek 2 Movie Review at Hollywood Video
Not only are Fiona's parents stunned to see her as an ogre, but Shrek isn't exactly who they had in mind for a son-in-law.
As with the original, Shrek 2 is a movie that requires multiple viewings to catch all the jokes and pop-culture references (Joan Rivers, Mission Impossible, Ghostbusters, The Fabulous Baker Boys, among many others).
The gags, pop-culture references and inside jokes are rapid-fire throughout Shrek 2; indeed, the movie's so cluttered with them that many won't present themselves until a second or third viewing.

Yes, Far, Far Away just happens to be the setting of Aspyr Media’s Shrek 2, based on the wildly popular animated movie.
Like the film, the game opens with Shrek and his wife, Fiona, getting ready to go see her parents, who don’t know that she’s really an ogre, as revealed in the first movie.
Later you play as Puss in Boots, hired by the king to off Shrek when Fairy Godmother reminds him that he had agreed to marry Fiona to Prince Charming, and as Giant Gingerbread Man, a variation on the same character from the first film.

Shrek 2 is better at this than most but it doesn't have anything new to say, and I fear the formula is getting very tired.
This is a film for children of all ages, with enough humour for adults to keep them interested, and a classic tale, with modern twists, to delight all audiences.
The newest adventure of Shrek is very entertaining and great for a cosy night in, but it's nothing compared to the 1st, filled with the same jokes.
