  1. Its gameplay isn’t any more innovative than the average action title, and the camera is as ridiculously dysfunctional as the Simpsons family, but the stellar story more than atones for it, as The Simpsons Game is the best Simpsons game to date, bringing Springfield and its denizens to life as never before.
  2. The Simpsons Game is easily the family's best outing yet: genuinely clever and with a devilish ability to spot gaming's weak spots and exploit them for massive laughs, it's the kind of game that will appeal to fans and gamers of all ages.
  3. The Simpsons Game will instantly appeal to fans of the series and typically a younger generation of gamers, due to the often easy gameplay. However there are enough jokes thrown in there and fantastic game parodies that only a seasoned gamer or adult would appreciate.
  4. This game is fan service in its most pure form. It is a shame that the camera is, as Mr. Sparkle would say “Most-ah Disrespectful-ooh” to the polish present in much of the rest of the game.
  5. The bothersome camera often gets stuck, thus obscuring your vision and two-player split screen messes with the game's speed, but the exclusive clips and humorous presentation make this a must play, especially for diehard Simpsons fans.
  6. I enjoyed it as a mindless entertainment that kept me going through each level by incentivising the cinematics.
  7. It's blunt, dumb, ridiculous, and almost never funny. Never mind that this action platformer is buggy, dull, and handles like wet cardboard, or that the faces look like they were drawn on an Etch-A-Sketch. A weak game could pass, if only it had some good laughs.

    The Simpson cell shading looks beautiful in HD, and is one of the first to be a 3d game that looks hand drawn like the cartoon. The humor in The Simpson cell shading looks beautiful in HD, and is one of the first to be a 3d game that looks hand drawn like the cartoon. The humor in the chatter during the game play keeps the expected simpsons style humor up to par with TV Series, play the game for the humor. If you are simpson's fan, this title is a must have. If you are looking for new and innovative game play, and revolutionary graphics-you are missing the purpose of the game. Expand
