    While the gameplay isn't going to grab you, your Simpsons geekiness will be totally fulfilled in the amazing detail given to the tons of referenced jokes and buildings from over a decade of the show.
  2. While "The Simpsons" is often entertaining and enjoyable, The Simpsons Road Rage for the Xbox is not.
  3. Isn't that bad, but like the unpopular kid in school, it tries so hard to be something that it's not. In this case, it's trying to be "Crazy Taxi."
  4. If you enjoy The Simpsons and you enjoy driving like a maniac, you'll enjoy this game, for a while. But the gimmick gets way too old way too fast to be satisfying to even the most rabid fans of the show.
  5. The game is arguably too simple for its own good and the result is a tedious and unimaginative gaming experience.
  6. If you're a Crazy Taxi or Simpsons fanatic, this game will definitely appeal to you. If you don't care much about either, don't bother.

    Fails to inspire but quasi-amuses. [Jan 2002]
  8. I was hugely un-impressed. It just becomes very repetitive and boring after the first few hours, because you realize that it will never improve.
  9. One word, used by Homer throughout, best describes the action in Road Rage: "Bor-ing."
  10. Even with it's oversights, traveling around Springfield has never felt so real or alive and players (fans) dying to know what the town really looks like won't be disappointed.

    Decent game, worth playing at least once, but it doesn't have much replay value. The Simpsons are funny as always, but you will tire of theDecent game, worth playing at least once, but it doesn't have much replay value. The Simpsons are funny as always, but you will tire of the same catchphrases over and over. Overall I did enjoy this game, but you won't miss out on much if you choose to skip over it. I'll give it a 7 because it IS fun the first run through but it gets old quickly and it isn't superbly executed, there were definitely some bugs in there. Full Review »

    It is a great game but i found that its only about you picking up people and driving them around.
