    The games starts good for the first few minutes, but as you progress, the game just gets boring with the bad camera angles and the repetitiveness of the attack styles. If you are a big Simpsons fan, than this game is for you. But other wise, just rent the game and don't buy it.

    I am a true Simpsons fan, and was looking forward to this game for a while. Aside from Hit and Run, the Simpsons games really sucked. This one does not really suck, but just kind of sucks. The camera is as bad as any game I have played. It makes it hard to jump in some areas. It is also rather repetitive. Jump, Punch, Kick. That is about it. The puzzles are rather easy and boring, and I am a true Simpsons fan, and was looking forward to this game for a while. Aside from Hit and Run, the Simpsons games really sucked.

That is about it. The puzzles are rather easy and boring, and with the awful camera, it makes them extremely annoying when you fall and have to start all over again. That being said, there are moments that will make you laugh out loud, and the animations are better than one might think. Overall rent it on Gamefly unless you are a Simpsons nut like me! Expand

  1. The camera is a nightmare, often getting stuck behind some invisible barrier or randomly switching to new and more disorienting angles. The collision detection's had a nervous breakdown, the puzzles are as laborious as a two-hour queue in the freezing cold and the combat has about as much depth as the shallow end at your local swimming pool.
  2. The gameplay might not be anything special, but The Simpsons Game delivers more than enough laughs to make it worth a look.

    The Simpsons Game on PS2 falls short of its next-gen brethren because of horrific controls that cause unneeded deaths throughout the game.
