Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The first thing that leaps out at you when you pick up Simpsons Road Rage is Crazy Taxi--it's an unashamed copy of the Sega hit and is relatively unchanged for the Xbox version. The premise is simple: drive around Springfield picking up characters from the popular TV show and depositing them at their requested destination for cash.

The graphics are colourful, yet not overly detailed--but then that's in keeping with the cartoon style of the show. This keeps the action at a nice and frenetic pace. The levels are pretty big, with a multitude of flash jumps and short cuts for show-offs; most of the scenery is destructible too, and that can add to the game's satisfaction. All of the locales are recognisable, from Moe's Bar to Grandpa Simpson's retirement home.

The main element of the game is the aforementioned Crazy Taxi-esque "Road Rage" mode. There are also Sunday Drive, multiplayer and mission modes. Sunday Drive allows you to pootle around the various levels at leisure for both sightseeing and tactical route-planning reasons; this is the best way to find those sneaky short cuts and hidden areas. Story mode adds a little extra sparkle to the game, with a set series of missions to complete--for example, Homer's skived off work for the afternoon and you, as Bart, have to sneak your dad past the evil Mr Burns and back into work.

As with most racing games, you're rewarded for reaching set point totals and completing the missions, but the difference with Simpsons Road Rage is that you get to choose your reward, be it unlocking one of the secret characters, like Groundskeeper Willie and his tractor, or opening extra maps, like the Springfield nuclear power plant. The real high point of Simpsons Road Rage, though, is the sound. No Homer-a-likes here--each character has their own real voice from the show, the one-liners aren't too repetitive and do lend themselves to the type of situation that the characters find themselves in, and some of the lines are laugh-out-loud funny. All in all, recommended for fans of the show, Crazy Taxi nuts and those gamers who are partial to unpretentious pick-up-and-play gaming. --Laurent S Hall

Manufacturer's Description

There's road rage, and then there's road rage Simpsons style! "D'oh!" Monty Burns is up to his greedy ways again. He's purchased Springfield's transit corporation and heinously jacked up the fares. Refusing to shell out for the new rates, the rage ensues. You'll take on commuters and jam-packed back routes, all in an effort to help buy back the corporation before time runs out.

More than 25 Simpsons characters climb behind the wheel or wander the streets begging for a ride. Careen through timesaving shortcuts and take on terrain including hills, mountains, and forests. Wreak havoc in five Springfield neighborhoods that include landmarks such as Moe's Bar and the nuclear power plant. Busy traffic and wayward pedestrians confound your rage. However, two-wheel leans, speed starts, power slides, and other cool car physics help you release that rage.

Multiple game modes let you go head-to-head in two-player split-screen action that challenges your opponent in a race for the next passenger, or you can steal his or her passenger midride! Complete up to 60 unique passenger deliveries in story mode, or take a leisurely Sunday drive through the fair Springfield. A bonus system lets you unlock cars and specific characters, while intuitive menus make this game easy to play. As Homer would say, "If it's hard to do, it's not worth doing!"

4.0 out of 5 stars forget what critics say, this is a very fun game 29 Dec. 2002
I've read a few bad reviews in magazines of this game before buying this game, but was very surprised to find how wrong they were.
For any Simpsons fan, you will find this game, fun, funny and entertaining.
Basically you start off as one of the Simpson family (Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Grandpa Simpson-and no, Maggie can't drive), and you drive around the location of Springfield providing a taxi service, and after you build up enough mony you can buy openings to new characters (from Apu to Police Chief Wigum) and settings (including the power plant, and downtown).
The game is really funny, with each character talking and making several jokes in conversation with the driver, while you speed by on the road to your next destination.
All in all this is an extremely fun game, that is great in both single player and multiplayer modes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simpsons to the top 1 Nov. 2004
By Matt
With 'The Simpsons' being the greatest cartoon in the history of mankind, I was extremely excited when I heard of the release of this game. My experience of simpsons titles is mixed but I'm glad to say 'Road Rage' is a huge exception. After the first few minutes, I was hooked. Gorgeous graphics, bundled with all the real character voices, and funny jokes.
It has a "Road Rage" mode where you go out, collect people, then drop them off (but there is a time limit). Then there's "Sunday drive" where you take as long as you want collecting the people you want. THen there is "mision mode" where there is 10 cracking levels to complete all with different characters.
You can unlock places and characters on "road rage" mode. And there is always the amazing $100,000,000 and the $200,000,000 contest which you have to reach that sum of money on "road rage" to unlock a certain something. But I'm not going to tell you that.
With simple controls and wacky gameplay, Its a must have for any "simpson fan".

4.0 out of 5 stars Works on the Xbox 360 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase
This is an old Xbox Classic game, but runs (mostly) OK on the 360. I say "mostly" as some of the sound clips don't play, mainly when Mr Burns is dishing out the end of level abuse. Other than that, it runs perfectly.
The game itself is very simple, collect enough money by transporting the citizens of Springfield to their destinations in order to by back the bus system from the greedy Monty Burns.
For me, the best part is the two player head-to-head, where players race to collect and diliver the passanger first without being tagged by the other player in order to steal the fare.
A great little classic game. Hours of fun on both the main game and the Sunday Drive option. If you're a fan of the 'Crazy Taxi' game, then you'll love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining for Simpsons fans 4 Oct. 2003
If you like the simpsons and driving games then this will be a bit of fun to play with. The objective of the game is to drive around as one of the starting characters (Bart/Homer/Marge/Lisa/) all in their own interesting cars picking up people and being a taxi driver.
As the game goes on you will generate more and more money and buying different locations and characters, then you will win when you get to a million. May get boring after you reach about half a million if you don't like driving games.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My children have not stopped playing this since they bought it and it's been a couple of months now. I'm afraid I don't play them, but my 11 and 13 year old are very happy with it!

2.0 out of 5 stars The Simpsons Road Rage 27 Oct. 2010
By max
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
A last gen game but it is alright for my young boy.

A poor game really but will have to do for now as there isn't a great choice of 360 titles for kids.

The game itself is a copy of crazy taxi with characters from the Simpsons replacing the drivers from the original title.
