The Smurfs (Game Boy) review


"This is the one game for my gameboy, that is not completely mine. My sister, even being 4 years older than me, was a smurf fan and wanted this game. Therefor my parents bought it for the both of us. There is really nothing that special about this game. It's just basically another game taken off a television show, and very few (the only major exception is Darkwing Duck) of these game are actually that good for more than a week. "



This is the one game for my gameboy, that is not completely mine. My sister, even being 4 years older than me, was a smurf fan and wanted this game. Therefor my parents bought it for the both of us. There is really nothing that special about this game. It's just basically another game taken off a television show, and very few (the only major exception is Darkwing Duck) of these game are actually that good for more than a week.

STORY (1/5): In truth, no television game has a REAL story with it (at least out of the old ones). You are a smurf and your trying to get back what is rightfully yours, I guess. I'm just taking a wild guess on this however.

GRAPHICS (13/15): For the original gameboy these graphics are pretty damn good. They do the job well, and the smurfs look pretty big, and the enemies look different from one another also. However there is no color, of course because this is an original gameboy, but smurfs should always be blue.

SOUND (8/10): Vintage smurf music in this game. Despite all odds, the music is pretty good. The sound effects however leave something to be desired.

GAMEPLAY (20/55): This is the biggest weakness in this game. You jump around and throw things to try and defeat your enemies. The best method in this game is just try to run away from all your enemies. Of course this is disheartening. The major thing to do is to avoid obstacles which do get fairly repetitive, and there are only 5 levels. These levels are fairly long, although they are not too interesting. There are masters at the end of some, and the main guy badguy is at the end of the game. I mean it's a cartoon turned into a game, you should never expect too much from those.

REPLAYABILITY (2/10): I am done with playing this game, therefor I sold it. Theres only so many times you can play a bad adventure game, and well this game has it's limits. It doesn't take too long to beat, so you should be fine to rent if you really want to.

DIFFICULTY (3/5): A pretty good level of difficulty for the youngsters, but for people like me they could've made it longer and a little more difficult. Don't get me wrong, you won't go through the game without ever losing a life, for it does have it's difficulty parts.

OVERALL (47/100): First of all, let's remember 21 of these points came from a graphical and sound perspective. This game looks and sounds fairly good for a gameboy, but that is all the Smurfs live up to. Definitely could've been alot better, if the creators spent a little more time working on it, before they sent it out to shipment.

Rating: 4.7/10

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic St...

Jak II was one of those experience that every gamer either absolutely loved or completely loathed. The game strayed from everything the first Jak game stood for, in that it took a much serious outlook, and it based itself more on the GTA series, that it's own original concept. Jak III does not change any of that, as it...

Jak and Daxter was a platforming game based on exploration, simple fight patterns, cool minigames, and lush colorful scenery. All that has changed in Jak II, for no longer is the Jak series perfect for kids of all ages and instead this game is only a little less intense version of Grand Theft Auto.
