I remember watching the smurfs on tv when i was a kid. I used to be a bit of a fan. I'd sometimes even watch it before going to work.

The basic outline of the story is that one night a stork drops a bundle out side the house of Hefty smurf and flys off. In the morning, after the baby smurf had been discovered, Gargamel had created an army of furry - but incredibly stupid - creatures to capure the smurfs. Needless to say, the creatures went off and disturbed the smurfs playing with the baby. They manage to capure 9 smurfs as well as the baby smurf. News gets back to the village, Smurfette tells Hefty and when he hears the news he goes off to rescue everybody and teach gargamel a lesson!

Un bon titre qui cible chez les petiots et une bonne initiation aux plates-formes.

This game very much appears to be designed for very young children up to about age 10 or so (no actual age bracket is listed on the jewel case, but Infogrames web site states ages five and up). The brilliant graphics and backgrounds are definitely worth mentioning again as they are very nicely rendered. Overall, while the game isn’t that difficult, it’s a nice break away from all the 3D games out there. If you have young children, are in the mood for a simple 2D-side-scroller, or are just a fan of the Smurfs in general, this game is for you, which is why I give it a score of 82.

Les Schtroumpfs est un jeu qui surprend par sa qualité, que beaucoup de jeux plus "sérieux" n'atteignent pas ! Le produit semble correspondre parfaitement à la cible, soit les joueurs de moins de 10 ans. "Papa, Maman, ça fait un beau cadeau de noël !"

The Smurfs failed to excite me as I hoped they would. It's clear that Infogrames successfully made a game that the young ones can enjoy but most will want to pass on this. However with the scarce availability on the PlayStation parents will want to consider this game.

Die Schlümpfe ist ganz klar auf ein sehr junges Publikum ausgerichtet, was sich in einem niedrigen Schwierigkeitsgrad und einer ziemlich kindlichen Aufmachung niederschlägt - naja, so sind die Schlümpfe halt. Und genau für diese Zielgruppe ist das Game gar nicht mal ungeeignet und wird den Kids sicher eine Zeitlang Spaß machen.
In summary, The Smurfs is a fantastically detailed but short-winded adventure. The nature of the game is geared towards children (as The Smurfs should be), but the older generation will still enjoy playing. The action is varied, meaning that you'll constantly see new obstacles with each level. and the graphics are pleasing. The virtual Baby Smurf game isn't much fun to me, but those who enjoy virtual pets will consider this an added bonus. The Smurfs is a sure-fire rental if you're an older fan, and a good purchase for a younger child in need of entertainment.

In dem “Kinderleicht-Modus“ versorgt ihr das Baby wie einen blauen Tamagotchi und reagiert auf seine Wünsche. Allerdings müsst ihr in verschiedenen Levels diverse Rasseln und Milchflaschen einsammeln. Der etwas schwerem zweite Modus stellt sich als komplettes Jump & Run heraus.
