    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.

    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. Expand

  1. Untimately, though, The Simpsons lives and dies on the strength of its gameplay and here it doesn't particularly shine. [Nov 2007, p.64]
  2. The chuckles along the way make it worth the trouble for fans, but if you don’t know Arman Tamzarian from Disco Stu, most of the game’s redeeming elements will fall on deaf, bored ears.
  3. 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.
