Shrek Smash 'n' Crash Racing Smash n' Crash invites players to ride through a selection of familiar scenes from Shrek's universe. No ordinary racer, this, however. As is the norm in games of this ilk, things are decidedly comedic from the get go. How can we not raise a smile at being given the opportunity to race atop Gingy's Cupcake of Princess Fiona's Onion Carriage? And where else in videogaming can you see a donkey riding a dragon, eh?
All the memorable Shrek characters are available for selection (some have to be unlocked, mind) giving you the opportunity to test your racing (and combat) skills against some well-known fairytale opponents, including Donkey and Puss 'n' Boots, of course. Get mounted and away you go, with a choice of 12 locations, such as Shrek's Swamp, Far Far Away, Dragon's Castle and Fairy Godmother's Factory. If you happen to fall behind (and you will at first) try not to fret too much. Melee weapons and magical pick-ups are on offer so you can even the odds and fight your way back into contention by erm, dislodging your opponents from their mounts. Some of the pick-ups are just plain hilarious: Lord Faaquaad in-a-Box, Frog Balloon and Swamp Gas are just three of many. We shall not spoil your fun by detailing what the aforementioned are capable of doing. Suffice to say, there's a lot of laughs to go along with the racing action.
