  1. The game is not there for the amusement or entertainment of the general public - it's a special, silly game reserved for true aficionados of the Simpsons. Count us in.

    What's missing is Crazy Taxi's sense of breakneck speed, as well as its more clever map design.

    If you've played "Crazy Taxi" before leave Road Rage on the shelf, everyone else who isn't a Simpsons fan, should invest their money in something else because there is really only lasting appeal for the fans and even then it's cutting it close.
  4. A weekend may be enough for most, as the flaws of unimpressive graphics, brief-lived audio humor and questionable control are substantial.
  5. What makes this game rise above its humble beginnings are the tons of unlockable characters and the six different environments.
  6. While it's better than the poor GameCube port of the original "Crazy Taxi," ultimately, the only saving grace Road Rage has is that it's a Simpsons game.

    The Simpsons Road Rage is fun for short stretches of time, but it's a definite rent-first title.
  8. 60
    While it may sound fun, the play control and physics in the game are rather loose, resulting in unresponsive vehicle controls and collision detection that has you occasionally hitting objects you aren't even touching as you drive.
  9. 58
    For awhile, Road Rage delivers a funny, though not particularly original racing experience. But just as the one-liners quickly run dry, so does a compelling reason to keep playing the me-too racer.

    Simpsons has a good racing game but is still clunky and gets repetitive. But overall this game is fun and better than the other versions.
