Smurfs Kart Reviews
If it cruelly lacks madness and content to stand out, Smurfs Kart remains a correct family entertainment, in the so cute universe of Peyo.

On the track, Smurfs Kart pulls off a surprisingly solid imitation of Mario Kart, with satisfying handling and some wonderful visuals (albeit at 30fps). In the grand leaderboard of Switch karting games, it's not quite going to trouble the podium places, but it's certainly lingering just behind the front-runners and definitely delivers an entertaining time, even if it's as short as its subject matter. A lack of courses is what keeps it from being one of the very best karting games on the Switch, but they certainly haven't Smurfed this one up.
Smurfs Kart does too little to make you fall in love with it and, despite some details that Smurfs' fans will surely notice, it doesn't manage to offer enough to make you feel entertained for long.

There's a solid base for a kart game here, but there's just not enough content to be considered a contender on the Switch. As a result, it's hard to compete against something like Mario Kart. And priced at $40, spend the extra $20 and get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Switch instead.
Smurfs Kart itself is not a bad game, it's just very shallow and almost all the competition handily beats it. The whole situation is made worse by the fact that the game has woefully little content and has completely omitted online multiplayer, leaving you to discover all of its content in one short evening.

Smurfs Kart is pretty smurfy, at least in some parts. It nails the mechanics of Mario Kart quite well, the presentation is quite nice despite the low frame rate, and it has a good sense of speed. That said, the small number of tracks, vagueness on weapons, and basic modes mean that most Smurfs fans will knock out everything in an afternoon and struggle to return. It's not that bad of a kart racer for the Switch, but only die-hard fans of the recent cartoon will want to make this their main kart racer.
I'm very happy with how cute and accessible SMURFS KART is because it allows anyone to enjoy racing in adorable little karts as their favourite miniature blue chum. It may be a bit short on content but it's certainly not short on fun.
While there is no shortage of good ideas, key ingredients are missing

Sure, it’s fun to see some new characters get behind the wheel, and it’s great if you want a change from the usual “Ya-Hooo! I doubt many people would have considered the Smurfs for this kind of thing, but Smurfs Kart doesn’t bring anything new that will set it apart from existing Nintendo Karting games. It’s great to see them stick with the Smurfs art style, but the sound effects are rather lacking, particularly when it comes to the karts.
This game is so much fun for almost everybody. It looks great and is nice to play. You would enjoy this much as you love Mario Kart games.

Smurfs Kart is a decent and fun game to play, while it may be awfully similar to the ever-so-popular Mario Kart. It is still enjoyable and a safe choice for those who do like games like this. Smurfs Kart is fun, brings its own unique twist, and has lovable characters that complement many ages of players through the generations.
Smurfs Kart doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, instead giving you a clear Mario Kart-inspired kart racer with fantastic visuals, a good variety of playable Smurfs and accessible gameplay. If your family is looking for their next competitive racer, this game delivers tons of multiplayer thrills.
This game has no future for my own interests. I can nod and say “I played it,” followed by shrugging if asked if I liked it. If my friend wanted to try it, I’d give it another spin with them, but it’s far, far down the list for a game I’d recommend to pick up and play.
Smurfs Kart is a traditional kart racer featuring the charming and exciting Smurfs. Did this licensed title leave a smurfing good impression? Or was I hoping for more? Find out in this Rapid Review.
Smurfs Kart is a simple game and doesn't try to be more than that. This is by no means a bad thing. The title knows what it wants to present and delivers casual, family fun using all the charisma and sympathy of the characters. Just like Clumsy Smurf, it slips up a little, making it unable to reach the highest places of the podium, but it's fun enough to be worth a few laps.
