    Look, you can complain about the length all you want but for any old school gamer like me that pumped God knows how many quarters into the machine as a young teen (some of you people out there know what I'm talking about) it's completely worth the $10 for nostalgia. Konami did a fantastic job bringing this to a whole new generation while at the same time it should please the one's thatLook, you can complain about the length all you want but for any old school gamer like me that pumped God knows how many quarters into the machine as a young teen (some of you people out there know what I'm talking about) it's completely worth the $10 for nostalgia.

    If your basing a review on the length of this game then you're reading the wrong review. This game is for Simpsons fans and arcade fans of the genre that Konami was king of back in the day. Its easy to play, its funny, and its an absolute blast to play it with 4 people. I pumped so many quarters in this game back in the day, $10 to play the game while sitting on my couch is a steal.

And when you beat the game, just start a new one! It takes 5-7 hours to beat MW2, MW3 or Black Ops but no one complains about that because its CoD. And that game is $60 reskinnned every year!! Expand

    this game reminds me of times when I used to sit infront of an arcade console and wasted hundreds of quarters on the same level! I really enjoyed this game and it always puzzled me why they didn't put it on home consoles? but now they have and It's...... ok. Once again they almost butchered z good arcade game. the graphics are timeless and the sound jumps out and in sometimes but overall,this game reminds me of times when I used to sit infront of an arcade console and wasted hundreds of quarters on the same level! I really enjoyed this game and it always puzzled me why they didn't put it on home consoles? but now they have and It's...... ok. Once again they almost butchered z good arcade game. the graphics are timeless and the sound jumps out and in sometimes but overall, not bad. the controls are just like in the arcade wich works really well surprisingly. However, this is my problem with arcade ports: the life system is broken beyond reapir. In the arcade, you put in quarters and that was your extra lives but, at home..... you only press start so you have unlimited lives. this makes the game INCREDIBLY easy and there isn't any adversity to overcome! overall it's a classic beat em' up and I enjoy playing it alone or with friends.

    If you love an old-school 80's/90's beat-em-up, this is it. They took the Arcade game and ported it really well into the 360, better than most I've seen. Really enjoyable.

    Fun, but don't expect longevity - without the need to feed coins into it, you'll be through it in half an hour. [May 2012, p.87]

    At 400 points, we'd call it a steal, and online co-op is a very nice bonus. At 800, though, we're just not that fussed. [Issue#83, p.105]

    Nostalgic fun that's aged badly. [Apr 2012, p.105]
