New Shrek & Harley Games Races Into Stores

Activision Publishing Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Inc., have just released the new games, SHREK SMASH N' CRASH RACING and HARLEY-DAVIDSON: RACE TO THE RALLY.

In SHREK SMASH N' CRASH RACING, players will take the role of their favorite SHREK characters and zoom, crash and slide their way through 12 locations using racing and combat skills against an assortment of twisted fairy tale opponents.

"SHREK SMASH N' CRASH RACING gives gamers a chance to experience a variety of racing challenges, including Tournament and Cup Challenge, and high speed Time Trials that will have them smashing and crashing through the colorful SHREK universe," said David Oxford, Activision Publishing Inc. "The game features SHREK's signature fun and humor and gives kids a chance to interact with their favorite SHREK characters like never before."

In SHREK SMASH N' CRASH RACING, gamers take on the role of Shrek, Princess Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots or eight other SHREK universe characters, and race around on comical vehicles such as Puss in Boots' bull, Humpty Dumpty's egg cup and Gingy's cupcake. With a wide variety of tracks featuring log swings, windmills, moving gates, draw bridges and other gauntlets that test racing skills, players must use their melee accessories, such as Donkey's microphone and Pinocchio's nose, to battle twisted fairy-tale opponents through 12 locations, from Shrek's Swamp to Far Far Away to Fairy Godmother's Factory. Pixie dust, ogre strength and swamp gas will boost speed and strength, as well as thwart players' opponent's progress if gamers fall behind. Players can pit their skills against the game's advanced AI or enjoy the challenge of schooling their friends in multi-player, split-screen action.

SHREK SMASH N' CRASH RACING is available now for the PlayStation 2 for $29.99 and for Game Boy Advance for $19.99. The game will also be available later this holiday season on the PSP, the Nintendo GameCube and Nintendo DS for $29.99. The game has been rated "E" ("Everyone") by the ESRB for all versions.

HARLEY-DAVIDSON: RACE TO THE RALLY is now available for the PlayStation 2 and allows gamers to race from coast to coast across America exploring classic rides centric to "Harley-Davidson" and the biker lifestyle such as Big Sur, historic Route 66 and the Badlands. Each of the 20 authentic Harley-Davidson motorcycles including the Dyna, Softail, Touring and Sportster are fully customizable and upgradeable with licensed parts and accessories. Plus, it features a soundtrack with tracks by George Thorogood, Heart, Poison, Great White and more.

"HARLEY-DAVIDSON: RACE TO THE RALLY offers gamers the chance to ride some of the most recognizable motorcycles in the world in this fast-paced, open-road adventure," said Oxford. "Players experience the thrill of saddling up an American icon and the camaraderie of its brotherhood from their living room."

Harley-Davidson: Race to the Rally for the PlayStation 2 sells for $29.99. The PC version will be available on Nov. 28, 2006, for $19.99. The game has been rated "E" (Everyone) by the ESRB.
