The second Shrek-licensed game for the Xbox is a multiplayer affair in the tradition of Nintendo's Mario Party series. Up to four players select characters from the DreamWorks computer-animated movie before participating in an interactive board game. Landing on certain spaces triggers one of 30 mini-games — some competitive, some cooperative — for the right to earn drops of bug juice. The first person to reach 100 drops wins the game. The six available characters include Shrek, Princess Fiona, Lord Farquaad, Monsieur Hood, Thelonius, and Donkey.
Super Party also features six boards to compete on, each representing a locale from the movie. Two modes of play include Tournament, where players alternate turns moving around the board before participating in a mini-game, and Free-for-All, which focuses solely on the activities. Featured games include "Dragon's Breath," where players attempt to outrun the flying creature's flames, "Lily Pad Leap," a test to see who can last the longest on a pond without sinking, a cooperative game of "Castle Crumble," and firing vegetables from a catapult in "Food Fling." Players will also roll over knights while perched atop a barrel, catch and toss rats into a well, and more. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
