Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

As a game for young players, yes, Ubisoft's The Smurfs 2 is a charming, colorful, and a simple-to-pick-up game, whether you're playing by yourself or up to four simultaneous players in the drop-in-and-out co-op mode on the same television (or up to five players in the Nintendo Wii U version). Each of the Smurfs has their own unique abilities -- such as Vanity's poses and Papa Smurf's magic potions -- plus there are a half-dozen worlds to explore for a bit of variety.

Movie tie-ins usually aren't very good, but The Smurfs 2 proves licensed games can be done right -- just remember this casual game is for young kids and Smurfs fans alike, and won't likely appeal to anyone else. Note: The console versions of the game are more-or-less the same, but the handheld versions are a different game altogether and are not reviewed here.
