Better Than Bonestorm!,
This review is from: The Simpsons: Hit & Run (PS2) (Video Game)
Until now, all of the Simpson games have been awful. But this is different, it is hugely improved from previous games such as Road Rage.
Graphics: The graphics are really good and I can't make any complaints about them. 5/5
Gameplay: You take the part of one the Simpsons or Apu (the character changes each level). You have to work through 7 missions, 1 bonus mission, 3 street races and a couple of extra things on each level. Most of the missions involve collecting, destroying or avoiding. Some missions involve a mix. The gameplay is quite fun and will entertain you for quite a while. However, it is a bit repetative. 4/5
Story: The storyline is pretty good and as you would expect, quite funny. You will enjoy unravelling it as you play through the missions. It lacks detail though. 4/5
Unlockables: The game has lots of unlockables; movies, cars, areas, etc. I like my games to have unlockables in, because it gives you something to work towards. 5/5
Play Time/Replayability: It doesn't take that long to complete the missions, but there is plenty of other stuff to keep you occupied, such as collector cards or gags. It isn't a great game for playing again. 3/5
Sound(s):The sound is good and the voices and phrases are just like in the show. 5/5
Multiplayer: The game has a multiplayer mode in which you can race with up to four players. You have to unlock this mode and each of the tracks. It is quite fun to play this, as you can also play it by yourself against the 'bots', as you may call them. 4/5
Buy Or Rent: I would suggest buying it. However some of the more serious gamers may want to rent it for a week.
Overall: 88% - I highly recommend this to anyone, especially Simpsons fans.
