when I was first presented this, I didn't think much of it, being more interested in strategy or 'Tycoon' games. However, The Simpsons Hit and Run turned out to be a great gaming experience. I won't spoil it for you, but I'll tell you about what made this game so great:
Graphics - quite good. This game doesn't rely on special effects alone to impress you. I've seen games (and films) which are all graphics and no real plot or storyline.
Storyline - Funny with an ironic twist.
Vehicles - Plenty to choose from, from the family sedan to the Mr Plow truck. Or you could just stop a car from the road, hop in and go for a ride!
Missions - Fun with all the adrenaline flowing. For once, the missions are actually challenging and not ridiculously easy.
Humour - lots of it, making the game light-hearted and enjoyable.
I could go on forever, but there isn't enough space. What I'm saying is that The Simpsons Hit and Run is a great game that I am proud to have played. Ignore the other bad reviews; they don't know a good game when they see one.
