Activision's game version of the Shark Tale film allows players to relive the motion picture and interact with all their favorite characters. The game contains many different types of gameplay, including fighting, exploring, dancing, racing, and action levels. Players take on the role of Oscar, a poor fish whose get-rich-quick schemes never seem to work. His one big plan goes downhill worse than ever, getting Oscar out of it and other situations will require players to overcome a variety of different levels.
In Shrek 2, players must get through specific platform challenges by utilizing each character's strengths and abilities. Shrek is beefy, so he can carry items that can be stacked elsewhere, or butt-stomp weakened floors. Donkey can leap higher and kick down walls. Later on, players acquire new characters, like swashbuckling Puss In Boots who can cling to walls and grind down banisters, as well as plenty of other characters from the movie.
