I was so excited to be apart of this campaign to review and post about the Smurfs Dance Party for Wii. I grew up watching the Smurfs cartoon on television and recently saw the newly released Smurfs movie. If you haven’t seen it, you definitely should! It’s great! The Smurfs Dance Party is a great opportunity to get the kids together for a “game night” and have some family fun! You can have up to four players participating at a time. There are a few ways you can play the game; the first is in story mode where Papa Smurf tells a story of the adventures with the Smurfs in New York City as they try to return home, or Dance Mode where you can pick and choose the songs you’d like to dance to in shuffle mode or there’s playlist mode where you can put together your own personal playlist and get to dancing!
The characters in the game are Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Clumsy, Brainy, Gutsy, Grouchy, and of course Gargamel! We all have our favorite characters , my daughters is Gargamel while my favorite character is Smurfette. When you are in dance mode and playing with a team, be sure to work together to achieve a high score. Also pay attention to the freeze and shake icons, if you don’t stop moving or you don’t move when you are supposed to, you will lose points! We enjoyed playing The Smurfs Dance Party in Dance Mode and Story Mode. I had a great time dancing to all the amazing songs that are on the game. There are many hit songs like “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “One of The Boys” just to name a couple. My favorite song to dance to is Mr. Smurftastic! It was a mini work out for me because yes, I did break a sweat!
As a parent you’ll love the “Parents” section where you can track games statistics: like the date, calories burned, play time etc. You can also keep an eye on progress, credits and awards! You can turn the lyrics and next move icons on or off and sort songs alphabetically or by difficulty. The kids loved The Smurfs Dance Party because it was a fun activity to do together; it kept them energetic and worked them out. They loved the original songs on the playlist plus the hit songs by recording artists that they recognized. There’s definitely something for everyone with The Smurfs Dance Party! Visit Toy’s R Us to get your copy of The Smurfs Dance Party, it retails for $29.99.
