The Smurfs & Co captures the mood of the Smurfs' license nicely, with visuals that are plucked straight from the popular cartoon. As players progress in the game they'll be rewarded by getting to interact with more and more "celebrity" Smurfs, whose individual character traits shine through in fun dialog snippets and special quests. However, players will need to convince some Facebook friends to join the game (or "friend" strangers for that purpose) since having neighbors is essential to progress beyond a certain point -- unless, of course, players are willing to pay to unlock certain quests and items.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
