  • Summary: Grab your board and a nice piece of asphalt! A Skate Tour has come to Springfield, and the entire town has gone skate crazy on the half-pipes, ramps, and rails. Super skater Bart Simpson is the favorite to win the whopping $$ Mega-bucks $$ prize of $99, but Homer, Krusty, and many others are going to show just what they're capable of when money's at stake. So quit your job, skip class, and get to Springfield! Expand

  1. I'm not saying this game will replace "Tony Hawk 4," but I found it a heckuva lot more engaging and fun than "THPS3."

    You're better off going with the pro. [Jan 2003, p.52]
  3. Jumping has the buoyancy of Homer after a big box of glazed doughnuts. [Jan 2003, p.176]
  4. Control is brutal in this game, forcing players to grit their teeth and redo each maneuver multiple times before it registers correctly.
  5. It’s sluggish and unresponsive and absolutely riddled with annoying bugs that should have been detected early in the production process.
  6. If you’re looking for "Tony Hawk Pro Skater" for a much younger crowd or really love the show, Simpsons Skateboarding will surely disappoint.
  7. The gameplay is absolutely atrocious. Imagine a game where you can’t turn around without fighting the controller, where jumping is completley inaccurate, and the only way to finish the game is completing controller functions that will quite literally have you hating yourself for picking up this title in the first place.

    Clunky, awkward and not fun to play at all. The bar for skateboarding games was set very high by the THPS series and The Simpsons Skateboarding doesn't even come close. Expand

    The reason why i didn't give this a 0 is because it has the simpsons in it. This game sucks, and the producers were better off sitting in the streets of east LA. Expand
