    Laugh-out-loud comic quips ("I blame society!" Homer yells when he runs someone over) and endless sight gags round out this very pretty—and ever-so-animated—picture.

    This "Grand Theft Springfield" perfectly captures everything that makes the show great: the writing, the setting, the humor, and most importantly, the characters. [Mar 2004, p.72]
  3. It's been a while since I caught myself laughing out loud while playing a game. The game play is simple and really is an escape from some of the mind numbing titles out there.
  4. It creates the most accurate representation of the world of Springfield ever put into a game, and it manages to make the gameplay surrounding it quite a lot of fun.
  5. Hit & Run's gameplay is entertaining without the license, but the license considerably enhances the fun, and you can't for ask for anything more from a tie-in.
  6. While some gamers may be turned off by the game’s simplicity, Simpsons fans should be encouraged to enjoy this highly polished, eminently charming and enjoyable Simpsons driving adventure.
  7. Tries to avoid the woes of its predecessors by injecting some modern, albeit derivative, gameplay, but fails to really explore the platform it is built upon.

    Fantastic! It's like being in Simpsons' shoes, experiencing what they feel, and living their lives. This piece of jewelry deserves a remake.

    This game is excellent. I'm stuck on the last mission, of the 7th level. If you have any tips, give them to me!

A GOOD SIMPSONS GAME. To summerize the game for you,there are weird black vans and wasps and buzz cola crap all around Springfield.Something's weird in springfield so your favourite family are up to stop with the what the hell is going on? You have to complete missions.Its either destroying a car,looking for objects,or racing someone.Since they're are 50 missions,they are pretty much all the same but gets even moere frustating as you progress through the game.The game is REALLY repetitive.You do the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over AGAIN.It's still really fun.Funny one-liners,great graphics,and its the best simpsons game out there.A non-simpsons fan might not like it because the gameplay is lacking variety but simpsons lovers (as myself) will love this.Its a must-buy for any simpsons fan and can be a great rental for non-simpsons fan.

    Es un juego bastante bueno, me gusto poder controlar a cinco personajes diferentes. Además, tiene una buena variedad de coches y atuendosEs un juego bastante bueno, me gusto poder controlar a cinco personajes diferentes. Además, tiene una buena variedad de coches y atuendos exclusivos para cada personaje. Además de la historia, el mundo de Springfield es totalmente explorable, donde se podía encontrar sitios donde hacer carreras, monedas que conseguir para comprar ropa, y alguna que otra cosa más. En definitiva el mundo de los simpson en un videojuego mas que completo . Expand
