Very IMMATURE. I should not be able to see papa smurf's NIPPLES while he dances. Very good quality game, high definition, amazing plot.

Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Players should not head into The Smurfs Dance Party expecting a sophisticated dance simulation game. But even with those low expectations, they will likely become frustrated with the seemingly random and disorganized scoring system in the game. Following the dance moves exactly as the Smurfs perform them on screen can result in few or no points, while shaking the controller randomly sometimes provide players with a perfect score.

This is not a recommended title for dance game connoisseurs. However, those who want a simple, casual game related to the movie may enjoy what it has to offer.
