While The Smurfs isn’t going to innovate on the same level as, say, Crash Bandicoot, there’s a rather engaging adventure here. That’s mainly due to the gameplay, which feels just about right on every level when it comes to getting around and using your Smurfy abilities.
Shooting the Smurfizer is surprisingly fun, accurate, and kind of makes us wonder what multiplayer would’ve been like between these guys. Well, hey, you can’t win them all. The single-player adventure is the thing here, and it’s pretty fun.
Other platforming skills come of handily as well; and the game has a pretty decent challenge to it, though nothing that will make your kids boil over in frustration. It’s just about right for its Smurfy little level.
Furthermore, the game has over five worlds to explore, offering hours of content throughout the Smurf world. That’s a bit of a surprise, considering licensed fare like this is usually a one-and-done affair in a matter of hours. You’ll be busy here for hours, upgrading your Smurfizer and having fun with these blue guys.
