This had the potential to be pretty cool, an exploration of Springfield- sound fun? It's not, this isn't really a game it's just clicking on people or objects to see them perform an action. It will take 30 minutes tops to get through all of the content that is even remotely interesting.

Great for Simpsons Fans 8 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Although I would hope anyone could enjoy this game, it probably would be best for Simpsons fans because of the humor and references to specific episodes that others may have not seen. While not too challenging, it is lots of fun and after you win (by collecting all the cards hidden around the town), a link is given to a website, which gives you more ideas of what to do in Springfield. Bottom line: Great fun, but not for serious gamers.

Sometimes not even The Simpsons are enough... 30 July 2000
By Matthew Murray - Published on Amazon.com
The Simpsons: Virtual Springfield has two major assets in that the animation and the voices come straight out of the television series. They are extremely entertaining, and practically perfect. But Virtual Springfield is ultimately boring and misguided--it's fun exploring Springfield for a while, but once you realize what the limitations are, and how little variety there is in the things you can see, hear, and do, it gets old kind of quickly. The game's "through-line" of collecting cards doesn't really do much to enhance the experience. If you're a diehard Simpsons fan, you will find much to admire about Virtual Springfield, but there is ultimately little to like or to give more than an hour or so of your time.

Great looking but thin on gameplay 1 Dec. 1999
By Louis Rios - Published on Amazon.com
On the postive side, it looks just like the TV show, and it contains all the Simpsons characters and Springfield locations that you'd expect to see. For a while, it's fun to poke around and see what happens when you click on this door or that drawer. Unfortunately, there's just not enough to do in terms of gameplay. There doesn't seem to be much object of the game other than to collect hidden "trading cards". If you're a Simpsons fan, you'll enjoy it for a while, but it's ultimately kind of a disappointment.

The Wonderful World of the Simpsons Alive on Your PC! 29 Sept. 2000
By Luis Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
As a die-hard fan of the "Simpsons", I love anything and everything that has their image on them. After purchasing the rather disappointing "Simpsons Cartoon Studio" I decided to purchase "Virtual Springfield" and see how much more different it was.
What I got was an incredible game that allow the user to explore the town of Springfield as if you were walking through the streets with a virtual reality helmet on. While the game features excellent graphics and sound, and plenty of humorous characters and scenarios, I was only disappointed that the game manual wasn't too informative on how to collect items, especially the series of trading cards that are hidden throughout the town. Besides this minor fault, the game is great for adults, and it would probably be a bit difficult for young children to maneuver around the town using a mouse.
All of Springfield's humorous and wacky denizens are here, and some of the places where you can actually visit inside (e.g. the Kwik-E-Mart; Simpson's home; Flander's home) are hysterical and entertaining to the fullest extent. If you are a die-hard Simpsons' fan, then this game is for you. I only wish I could learn how to collect and use most of the items/clues that I need to complete my mission.

As Mr.Burns would say,'Excellent' 13 Sept. 2000
By "marc83" - Published on Amazon.com
A great game game with excellent graphics,perfectly capturing the essence of the town of Springfield.Obviously not as funny as the TV show but still entertaining.As a Simpsons fan,it's great to wander around the streets of Springfield,visit Simpsons landmarks such as Moe's,the Kwik-E-Mart,the Nuclear Power Plant and come meet all your favourite Simpsons characters. Great fun,but may not appeal to non Simpsons fans.
