    Clearly, as 3D platformers go, The Smurfs – Mission Vileaf isn’t exactly going to make anyone forget Super Mario Odyssey. In fact, it’s not likely to make anyone forget New Super Lucky’s Tale. But if you – or, more likely, the young children in your life – are after a game that will provide a few hours of entertainment, you could certainly do a lot worse.

    The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf is a nice 3D platform game that despite being entertaining has graphical issues and is very short. However, it can be enjoyed by players who simply want to have a good time.

    Whenever approaching a licensed property, especially one associated more with kids, veteran gamers are going to come to the table with aWhenever approaching a licensed property, especially one associated more with kids, veteran gamers are going to come to the table with a healthy amount of earned skepticism. The Smurfs, in particular, have been featured in many games through many generations over the years, but I’d say few have been notable. Mission Vileaf, for me, is a pretty refreshing break from the mold, offering up a great opportunity to explore their three-apple-high world and save the day. The family-friendly 3D platforming is broken up by reasonably simple combat and use of your ever evolving Smurfy gear, clearing the infected vegetation and dispatching corrupted critters. Difficulty is thankfully defined up-front to allow for a wider range of skill levels, and the ability for someone to join in co-op style to lend assistance makes it a terrific option for gamers in training. It may be lacking in overall complexity, and it won’t go toe to toe with the best the genre has to offer on the system, but it’s still a Smurfy good time if you’re open to the experience.
