  1. If nothing else, this playful romp packs enough in-jokes for both Simpsons fans and gamers in general that it’s definitely worth playing through at least once.
  2. In the end, what you are presented with is a very solid Simpsons title. Its humor, as stated, goes beyond just pleasing regular and hardcore Simpsons fans. So aside from the camera, the game is just find-diddly-ine to go on out and pick up.

    Untimately, though, The Simpsons lives and dies on the strength of its gameplay and here it doesn't particularly shine. [Nov 2007, p.64]
  4. For the two or three evenings that this will last you, there’s enough going on to keep you pushing forward to the end.

    The camera is very bad and the graphics are very bad they look like a PS1 game. Well the controls and gameplay is okay and the game is kinda worth it.

    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 titleGreat 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 writingAlthough 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.
