Yes, you can even fight as the Gingerbread Man!

Shrek Super Slam is better than you may think. If anything, it is definitely far superior than the movies Shrek 2 and Shrek the Third combined! Super Slam is a 4-player fighting game that is very similar to games like Power Stone 2 and the Super Smash Bros. series. The controls are simple with basic melee attacks at your disposal and a cool super power "Slam" attack when you are able to fill up the "Slam" bar. There are also a lot of weapons as well as environmental objects you can pick up and use against your opponents. It's fast paced and hectic and the destructible stages really add to the fun. I am not a big Shrek fan and the reason why I bought this was because it just looked like a fun beat-'em-up and it actually is! The game contains a lot of characters, stages, and things to unlock. Super Slam would have been a more popular game if it had online multi-player support.
