  1. The Simpsons Game may just be the funniest video game ever, but funny is not the same as fun,and it's just not a very good game. I found myself wanting to finish the game just for the humor, even though I was screaming at the TV after falling down the 10,000th pit or when the camera showing me the wall again while i get killed.
  2. It may have all the wit and style of the series, and Simpsons fans will no doubt love picking out all the references. With no effort put into caring about how the game plays, however, it means that you might not be able to actually play the game enough to get them all.
  3. It's too bad the execution fails so miserably, because many of the ideas are great. [Holiday 2007, p.85]

    Great game! A wonderful collaboration of video game and the simpsons. Although this game is no Hit and Run, it's still a very enjoyable title with an outrageous and entertaining storyline, witty and creative dialogue, original and humorous gameplay mechanics, and quirky and cartoony graphics. Although this title is entertaining and super over-the-top ridiculous, it's bogged down by it's horrendous camera angle functions, janky cutscene animation, and notoriously repetitive gameplay. Brilliantly designed levels don't make up for gratuitously stale gameplay that requires you to do the same thing over and over and over again. I would love to give this title a higher score, but it falls short of reaching it's potential as the best simpsons game to date. Full Review »

    Although not anything ground breaking, The Simpsons Game is a solid entry into the franchise, it contains the standard semi-witty writing which we all know and love, and combines it with decent platforming. Full Review »

    This game was Dam! Good. I can't believe anyone would give this game anything below a 7. I mean it doesn't deserve a 9 but upgrades tons of levels the humor dead on makes me feel like i was in a episode. Only thing i didn't like,the split screen for the coop. They should have only incorporated split when characters venture far apart. I hope to see a conclusion. Full Review »
