  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. The details and references to the TV show will provide non-stop amazement.
  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. This reckless, Crazy Taxi–like romp around town is like a high-speed dream tour for fans of the series. Almost every Simpsons character in the game is either a driver or a passenger.
  5. A game that only Simpsons fans can appreciate.

    It looks a little worse than the Xbox version, but moves a bit faster and controls slightly better. [Dec 2001, p.93]
  7. All the Simpsons characters and environments are lovingly and faithfully recreated, replete with references to specific events in episodes.

    I used to play this game everyday back when I first got my PS2 in 2002. It's a very fun Crazy Taxi style game with Simpsons characters. TheI used to play this game everyday back when I first got my PS2 in 2002. It's a very fun Crazy Taxi style game with Simpsons characters. The voice acting is done by the actual actors from the show so it's pretty ok. Moe has the funniest lines in the game in my opinion. You can drive as pretty much all the main Simpsons characters including special cars you can get by setting your PS2 date to certain holidays. Driving around is pretty smooth and responsive. The graphics unfortunately do not hold up today. Very low res, blocky graphics. The different areas you can drive around are unique in their own right but there aren't many (only 6 I believe). There's a mission mode where you complete 10 missions and unlock a special vehicle. Then there's sunday drive where you just drive around. Finally, (I forget what the main mode is called) but that's the mode where you drive around to earn money and buy new cars and areas. The sound design is ok too, some of the songs start off as catchy but get repetitive over time. Overall, it's dated but still fun. If you like the Simpsons and Crazy Taxi then you may like this game.
