Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Expect Simpsons Wrestling to offer fierce competition for the console wrestling game crown and you¹re going to be in for a disappointment. If you're in the market for a fun, throwaway piece of arcade entertainment, however, this could be just your bag.

Boasting the involvement of 19 characters from the TV series, complete with accompanying sampled sounds and venues lifted from the show, the aim is to take control of a character and battle to be the Springfield Champion. Each character comes with their own taunts and moves (for instance, Barney attacks with a beer pot, while Homer will strike you down with his bowling ball), and although the game perhaps too often descends into a melee of random button hammering, it's fun trying out the different characters (some of which are locked at the start). Each bout is also enlivened by the various power-ups that appear throughout the ring (which serve up extra fighting options), and the taunt mode, which gives you a brief period of invulnerability.

Simpsons Wrestling never has any pretensions about being more than an enjoyable little fighter. That's fortunate, because it's no threat to the current fighting game champions. Yet while this is best described as short-lived entertainment, it's still certainly fun while it lasts. --Simon Brew

Review

This is not wrestling; it's hardly even a game. The sound bites are from the real talent, which is one good thing--the only good thing, in fact. The rest is a button mashing horror, an exercise in frustration made all the worse by just how much we would like to be enjoying ourselves. The Simpsons Wrestling is the worst kind of licensed rubbish, a generic fighting game that uses popular characters but doesn't pay attention to their personalities. Seeing Marge clobbering people and using Maggie as a special weapon is lame. Lisa in a fight is even dumber. Even the characters that might be prone to such violence, such as Groundskeeper Willie and Homer, are incredibly lame, since they have less than a half-dozen moves each. In sum, worst use of a license ever. If for some reason you're not interested in the game because you're a fan of The Simpsons but because you want some crazy arcade fighting action, well, don't bother. The gameplay is the only thing that could be worse than the license use, and that's saying a great deal. There are a dozen characters to choose from and 10 different locales. Each character has a basic attack, a special attack that must be charged up and a grapple. None of them are any fun. Not even for a minute. The graphics are terrible, with low-res characters, abominable collision detection and static backgrounds. The backgrounds are equally low-res and blurry, even though they're 2D and don't move at all. How hard would it have been to just import art from the show? There is no battle royal or any extra fun modes at all. This isn't actually wrestling, remember, so it's all about one-on-one action. Here's how the game works: Each character appears in a corner of the ring and spouts a catch phrase. Then the action begins. Then, less than five seconds later, a disillusioned Simpsons fan turns off the PlayStation in disgust. Repeat ad nauseam. --DailyRadar.com -- DailyRadar.com

2.0 out of 5 stars Stone Cold, Please Give This Game A Stunner 20 Mar. 2012
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
As iconic as the Simpsons and the Simpsons franchise is you have to admit that even the very popular yellow-skinned family have had moments that they're not proud of. Crumby animation in their beginnings; the episode "The Principal And The Pauper" being hated due to way Principal Skinner's character was treated; and the simple fact that the episodes from the 2000's are not as good as the ones from the 90's. Another blotch on their record is 2001's The Simpsons Wrestling, the video game for the PSone.

Several Springfield citizens look the lay Smack D'oh-n on each other's hairy yellow butts as they fight in wrestling rings setup in numerous popular Springfield locations. These include the Nuclear Power Plant, outside the Kwik-E-Mart, and the Simpsons home street of Evergreen Terrace. There are eight different characters to choose from, including Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, with others to unlock as you play through the game.

The wrestling PPV card consists of one-off practice matches, or you can challenge friends to 2-Player bouts. The main event of the evening is the three different circuits which need to be completed before you can shout "I'm king of the world!" hopefully without falling down Springfield Gorge afterwards.

The aim of the game is so simple to explain even Homer has no excuses for not understanding it. You beat your opponent senseless and then get the 3-count to win the match. Moves are assigned to the square, triangle and circle buttons, and these are controlled by a power meter. When it fills up a certain amount then you can use a certain move. This combined with the numerous arcade styled pick-ups is supposed to encourage some form of strategy, although most times you'll just be bashing the square button repeatedly.

4.0 out of 5 stars stunning 2 Jun. 2001
The first day i had this game i played it all day on new challenger and could not get past burns, but i managed to in the end,so be warned.The game itself is brill i could not think of a better way to spend...There are lots of different charecters,most of them out of the show are in the game, including my favorite itchy and scratchy.Now i have all the characters i usally just play against my friends as it is a two player game. This game is not at all like wwf as each character has its own different move. You also get a lot of laughs out of the game as it is so funny.I would reccomend this game to any one

4.0 out of 5 stars Its not that bad! 3 April 2005
True, this game is not as good as some of the new consoles games, e.g. PS2, Gamecube or the Xbox. This game was an early release on the playstation one. At the time it was a pretty good game, and offered a story mode and multiplayer options. It is a challenging game and allows you to choose from a wide range of characters, which all have their own special moves and attacks. Overall this game is worth buying if you want a cheap new challenge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top fun wrestling game 22 Mar. 2001
After finishing Smackdown 2, I wanted a wrestling game that could make me and my friends laugh. And with this game we LAUGHED and LAUGHED and LAUGHED!! It was so funny...all our favourite characters were included in this game with all the usual game modes (One on one, tag matches etc). The only problem is that everyone wanted to play as Barney...though we did take it in turns in the end.
Overall excellant fun, not as serious as Smackdown 2, but top multi-player fun.

1.0 out of 5 stars D'oh !!!!! 30 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
Simpsons Wrestling had the potential to be a brilliant game bringing together the two wonderfully fun scripted worlds of Springfield and pro-wrestling. However the game is critically hamstrung by limited and poor gameplay that offers nothing in the way of genuine control over the characters. D'oh !!!!!!!! a missed opportunity......

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of the planets resources... 20 April 2001
If like millions of people around the world and myself, you love the Simpsons, then you will be utterly dismayed by this shoddy effort. You're expected to swallow a premise that Lisa would 'fight' Marge, or Homer would 'fight' Bart etc. - how does this make a credible Simpsons game?
'Fight' is used advisedly - if you buy a wrestling game like Smackdown 2, you expect a few more moves than wearily bashing the square button as quickly as you can - which is the entirety of the gameplay in this. The 'special moves' are non-existent, the difficulty level simply consists of making a later opponent unbeatable, the graphics are shoddy- it looks like a Mega Drive game, and the sound is very poor.
An insult to the intelligence and buying power of Simpsons fans. You'll have the game finished in three hours, and sold within a day. I bought it for my five year old daughter, and even she thinks it's rubbish.
What's the final insult? That the loading screen consists of an Itchy and Scratchy animation that was available on the PC about ten years ago. That's how much the programmers of this game thought of their target audience.
