Like I mentioned at the top this is a game that just feels like it exists. I was drawn in thanks to my connection to the Smurfs from my childhood. Playing with my son he enjoyed the game, but had little interest in learning about the characters. It feels like the game is more built to tug at nostalgia instead of bringing in new interest. Even so the core game is enjoyable enough to recommend for parents looking to play games with their kids. It is easy enough to play while also not being too simplified for the sake of being a ‘kids’ game. Definitely worth checking out for parents and kids alike.

‎If you are looking for an adventure for a player, that young and old can enjoy, it is one of the best options you will find this Christmas. It is not very original and always goes on insurance, but its pleasant and entertaining development and great dubbing invite you to continue playing. On Switch it has slight frame petardeos, but it is perfectly playable.‎

I didn't start out with the best of expectations, but The Smufs Mission Villeaf turned out to be a nice little game! For a few hours it brought me back to the age when I hastily dined to leave my parents to their sad newsreel, and went to watch the Smurfs on the TV in my room. The graphic rendering of the characters is commendable (certainly more rounded than that of the two recent films) and the soundtrack a small masterpiece.

Finally, Microids has prepared a platform game for everyone, which will be fun for both the youngest and adults who remember the Smurfs of their childhood. Despite some bugs, a not very developed mechanic and a fairly simple story, it is a smurfly pleasant title for the whole family.

In looking for a way to compose a product suitable for children, Microids seems to have lost sight of what is really needed to convey a bit of healthy fun pad in hand.

With The Smurfs - Mission Vileaf, Osome Studio offers a kind of huge tutorial to 3D platformers: folded in the space of just a few hours, the adventure is only for beginner players in full development of their fine motor skills. With beacons every two meters and invisible walls in abundance, this initiatory course with a very nice tone remains much too wise to satisfy other profiles.

If you are a long-time fan of Papa Smurf and his little friends, you will surely enjoy this. The game is pretty far from perfect and shows some hiccups on Nintendo Switch, but it's fun enough to achieve what he wanted: to entertain the younger players with a cartoonish and colorful adventure.

Again, if you go into Project Vileaf expecting a life-changing game experience, um, you won’t get it. It’s lacking in long-term features to keep you hanging for too long. However, it’s got a pretty fun presentation, backed by gameplay that will keep you coming back for more. It could’ve used some better balancing with enemies in some places, along with possible multiplayer, but overall, we’re just Smurfed that the game ended up being more positive than expected.

Thanks to a colourful, well-designed world, challenging platforming sections and engaging gameplay, The Smurfs – Mission Vileaf solidifies itself as an example of one of the best children’s franchise tie-in games we’ve seen in recent years. It might be a bit too challenging for younger players by themselves, but it means it’s just as fun for adults, too. This is a commendable 3D platforming adventure that players of all ages will enjoy.
