4.0 out of 5 stars CARTOON CHAOS!! 3 Nov 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This has all the traits of the simpsons from genuine voice actors to cartoon graphics and unique comedy. A fun if not taxing game, you will complete this quite quickly, but will have fun doing so!

Camera angles can be awkward at times but this doesn't detract from overall game play which sees you playing through different "epsodes" of simpsons playing as all your favourite characters with a range of special moves to both attack and reach different areas of the game.

throughout the game are hidden tokens from krusty tokens to duff beer caps to be collected as you pass through the different levels.

A good easy to play over the top FUN! game, don't expect anything different. A must play (possibly rent though!) for all fans of the simpsons!

4.0 out of 5 stars cartoon fun! 6 Nov 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I rented this game from blockbusters just to ry it out and I must say the game is brilliant! The graphics are awesome, at time you can't tell the difference between the FMVs and the actually game itself. The game plays as a team one so you can control two the simpsons at any one time, then all have indivual powers and are so useful and needed for specific tasks within the game. There are loads and loads of rip offs of other games and films that are subtely done including, star wars, terminator, everquest, mdal of honor, grand theft auto. You can also walk around springfield itself going into loads of different places like moes, kwik-e-mart, simpsons house amd many more. This is a really good game but no real lastablility for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why you little!!!! 24 Feb 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, after many a dodgy tie-in game, finally a game based upon the Simpsons IP that isn't a complete failure. It's not ground breaking either, but a middling, fun game.

If you're a Simpsons fan, then the humour is spot on and the cutscenes superb to watch - as you would expect given that the Simpsons writers themselves were involved in the game.

The bane of all platform games (camera angles) makes an occasional appearance, but doesn't ruin the game completely. It's not as good as say, Lego Star Wars II, but much better than many platformers.

In my opinion, there's too much emphasis placed upon collecting things - Duff bottle caps, Marge's saving coupons, Malibu Stacey's, Krusty stuff - it's like the developers needed to pad the game out - and they did, because you will complete the story line fairly quickly.

The video game cliches are reasonably funny and at least take a different tact on the collectibles approach, but again, they are just padding.

So, aside from a collectible overdose, you might be thinking I like this game. As a Simpsons fan, you're right. I loved the main story, enjoyed it and thought it was a reasonable game. However, there's a problem with the Simpsons on the 360 which others have also found and been left annoyed by - the autosave mechanism.

As you progress, the game autosaves. It does so when you get a collectible, cliche or complete a chunk of the story. However, the autosave is buggy and is known to corrupt the save file. Theory seems to be that it sometimes takes much longer to save than the game indicates, so after the autosave logo disappears, you exit the game and hey presto - your save is corrupted. This is shocking and something EA should have picked up in QA.

Unfortunately I fell foul to this bug after completing the main storyline and was about to embark on getting the missing collectibles - what a kick in the teeth!

3.0 out of 5 stars fun to be had if you perservere 4 Nov 2007
By Gary Hilton VINE VOICE
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many Simpsons fans out there, I was hoping that this would be the title to turn it around for America's favorite animated family in the video game arena. With two-player co-op and a focus on the humor that has made the show a primetime staple since 1989, The Simpsons Game has everything a fan could want...but not everything it needs to be a fun, interesting game.

The biggest problem is illustrated through one of the game's funniest features: the cliché. As you jump and punch your way through each mission, you will encounter hackneyed video game traditions like giant saw blades and pressure pads. Then the Comic Book Guy pops up and calls attention to the blatant unoriginality of these devices ("Ah, the crate. As seen in everything."). While this almost always gets a laugh, pointing out clichés doesn't make them any more fun to play.

The development team clearly knew that basic switch puzzles and time trials are tiresome, yet the player is forced to endure them. Even though the goals themselves are sometimes funny, the generic combat and platforming rarely make them fun to complete. There are also dozens of stupid collectibles like coupons and bottlecaps scattered throughout the world. Trust me, they are not worth picking up.

I know that I'm not making the game sound great - it isn't - but the important distinction here is unlike most mediocre platformers, you are actually rewarded for bullying through the levels. The comedy is so pervasive and well done that it still makes you want to keep going just to hear a good one-liner or see the next hilarious parody.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Simpsons isn't new to the gaming world by any means. But it's been over a decade since they actually had a true video game. For years we've seen Simpsons games that were just knock offs of other games like The Simpsons Road Rage or Hit and Run. The Simpsons Game, however, is its own thing. After nearly twenty years of a successful television run, a blockbuster movie and having an influence on our culture as a whole, The Simpsons finally get a true video game to call their own. It isn't as good as the 90's original arcade game, but it's by far one of the best video game outings The Simpsons have had in a while. By far this is one of the better games based off a TV show to hit the video game market yet.

The first thing to get out of the way is simple. Any huge fan of the show will absolutely love this game. The writing staff hopped on board to do the writing and they do a fabulous job. It's full of all the clever wit of the show along with several references to show as a whole. Many of the levels are centered around events which actually took place in episodes. The game serves as brilliant fan service to those who have come to love and admire the show over the past twenty years. Not only that, but it's easily one of the funniest games ever made.

Just like the show, you should expect it to be full of parodies and poking fun. And in this game it does all of that. It especially makes plenty of pokes at the gaming industry as a whole. If you're a hardcore gamer this game only becomes that much funnier when you see parodies of some of your favorite games like Everquest, Medal of Honor, and Grand Theft Auto. There are also jokes about some of the other aspects of the game presented by Comic Book Guy. Moments where you discover you can't swim for example. Or Invisible walls.
