Shrek

Shrek is a graphical achievement with gorgeously rendered interior and exterior textures, stunning real-time lighting, and awesome shadow effects. The sprawling, fairy-tale inspired worlds are fantastically designed and detailed, and by boasting emotionally expressive features and a ridiculous amount of polygons, Shrek himself is a visual marvel.

The thing is, once you've taken your jaw off the floor, you're stuck with a dull and frustrating game that's too difficult for younger players and not engaging enough to hook older gamers. Shrek's 37 missions, which almost always consist of herding or punting characters to certain locations, start to get old by the 10th one. The already too tricky platform hopping becomes even more aggravating due to a swaying camera that you'll have to rotate manually every few seconds to see where you're going. The music is standard fare, while the voice acting is humorous. Besides the thrill of seeing Shrek's wondrous world so beautifully presented, there's not much in the way of gameplay to keep the game interesting.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
