I played this game when it came out and thought it was pretty good. I remember the frustration when loosing and Marge said "you ar not very good at this"... ooh, I got pissed. But I completed it except for two missions: collecting mad monkeys and collecting garbage cans.
But then like a week ago, I found the game after 6-7 years (without any sort of car games), installed it and played all the way through. Luckily I recalled a lot of the shortcuts and have now completed every mission, bonus mission and race.
Well, there are some boring repetitive missions as well as annoying remarks from the characters but all in all I think this game is pretty decent, although a little easy from time to time.… Expand
CatzM.5Nothing new in gameplay... but good for Simpsons fans.
DudeRichman3This game blows for several reasons. Jokes are funny first, maybe twice, but then become REALLY repetitive. Trust me, after you hear the same joke 25 times it is really boring. You always do the same style missions. Driving is really horrible in this game and all missions are about driving. So, horrible driving engine and doing it all the time leads to really crap core gaming. Collecting items is pointless, utterly pointless. You only get money for cars which might be somehow useful, but you do this by default. The extra cartoon clip is not worth going for, I bet you can watch it on some clip site such as YouTube instead. Most missions have a tough learning curve, you must learn short-cuts. It gets really frustrating and annoying. As Prof. would say: "Oh Dear, Oh My". Driving into ANYTHING damages your car and most explode very quickly. Destroying things increases a police meter and they will hunt you. Is there any point to this? You pay them a find and lose some time if you are on the clock. This can harm you, but really fails to deliver some kind of feature. Either have no police, or make it easier not to drive into anything. Speaking of that, the other drivers on the road make Sunday drivers look like F1 heroes. They just cannot drive and often block your path because of their stupidity. Avoid this game, even thought most reviews say it's good. I am shocked they give such high review scores because they must be playing it for 10 minutes, laugh at the jokes and then put it away. Even if you are a Simpsons fan you will not enjoy this.… Expand
