  • Summary: Mr. Burns is up to his greedy ways in Simpsons Road Rage, purchasing Springfield's busses and jacking up the fares. Now, Springfield residents must turn their cars into cabs and work the streets. Hopefully, making enough money to buy back the busses before the clock runs out. Choose from over 30 of your favorite Simpsons characters and brave the jam-packed streets of six huge levels, performing big-air and powerslide stunts. Compete for passengers in two-player, split screen action. Go on a road rage, Simpsons-style. Expand

  1. Aside from the opening song and underlying plot there isn’t much to do with the Simpsons.
  2. 75
    But it's both the lack of character and lack of cartridge save that hurt the product; without Simpsons catchphrases, it just feels like the Simpsons license was slapped onto an existing game design (which it was, honestly).
  3. There’s something about driving around Springfield as Grounds Keeper Willie. He’s mega-awesome and anyone who disagrees is just lying to themselves.
  4. The game loses quite a bit in the translation... However, the new plow-down-everything Performance mode is a fun addition. [Sept 2003, p.137]
  5. The Simpsons can only get this game's engine started. To get it moving along, it'll need something else that just can't be found in the Game Boy Advance version.
  6. I suggest we change the name of the game to "Crazy Taxi 2: Featuring Sprites That Resemble Characters From The Simpsons."
  7. It's virtually void of driving freedom - the map blows. It has no trademark Simpsons charm, either. The gameplay is apocalyptically bad. [Aug 2003, p.104]

    The Game Boy Advance version of The Simpsons: Road Rage is incredibly boring and a step back from the console versions. Play the console versions instead. Expand
