  1. You have the instant playability of the Dreamcast classic ["Crazy Taxi"], but with television's favourite family stuck onto it. How can it go wrong?
  2. A game that only Simpsons fans can appreciate.
  3. Easily the best console Simpsons game ever. Considering that the lot it’s in is comprised primarily of crap that isn’t surprising but the fact that I like this game better than Crazy Taxi might be.
  4. In the very least it will provide a good laugh and a desire to watch some re-runs.
  5. 60
    Write 'I will not rip off other games, stick in a cult TV licence and rake in the cash' out 100 times.
  6. Like "Crazy Taxi," this game is fun for a few minutes at a time, but it’s not an engrossing experience. I liked it a little better than I did "Crazy Taxi," because I am a Simpsons fan.
  7. 39
    [It] would make a fine purchase for masochists and parents looking to punish their kids. Other than that, gamers could play "Crazy Taxi," and then watch an episode of the TV show to end up ten times more satisfied than this game will make them.

Almost This is a very fun game, I stayed up yesterday playing this game for 5 hours. For simpsons fans like me, this is simpson heaven. Almost whatever character you can imagine of are driving or on the streets of springfield in this game, including the sprinfield mascot. There are 3 modes. road rage, sunday drive, missions. Road rage is the mode that lets you unlock new characters and places. You have to pick up and drop people. The more score you play the more to unlock. Sunday drive is just a freeride so you can practice picking people up or you can just look at the awesome 3-D simpsons world. In the missions mode you have to do various missions with different characters. The story is brought out very nicely in this game. This has been quite an improvement over Simpsons wrestling. The sound is mediocre, not to good but it will do. One very nice addition is how the driver responds to each customer who gets in their car. Like homer and ned flanders would have a conversaton like this. "Hi homer", "hey neighbor" or if marge was the driver and homer sits in "hey marge", "hey homie, i missed you so much". But this is not going without saying that the game doesnt have flaws, it has quite a few. The driving is a little edgy. I wished it was more like crazy taxi. The same thing being heared by the character through the mission gets a little annoying. For people who liked crazy taxi for Dreamcast and like The Simpsons, definitely give this game a try. This game is alot of fun. DEFINiTELY WORTH ATLEAST A RENTAL!! Expand

    This game is actually a really fun game. Although it can get boring after a short period of time, I always seem to wanna come back and play This game is actually a really fun game. Although it can get boring after a short period of time, I always seem to wanna come back and play it...The Simpsons quotes are classic and halarious, multiplayer is great and never gets boring, and the graphics overall are pretty good, and the locations are huge and u never get bored trying to find the small shortcuts...on the downside, i found it took 4ever to load (like 2 minutesfor every game), and like i said, got boring after playing it for like 20 or so minutes, and mission modes arent that great, they probably could've made a couple more locations, i think they spent way too much time trying to make all of the vehicles, but thats about it...overall if ur a simpsons fan like me, and dont try and look into every little detail in video games, this game is fun, funny, and very entertaining.

The difference is that Crazy Taxi has nice graphics, sound and gameplay and is worth playing. If you're an idiot and you like wasting your money on half assed games with a franchise attached by all means buy this! This is just as bad as "Simpsons Wrestling" on the psone. Expand
