This review is from: The Simpsons: Hit & Run Platinum (PS2) (Video Game)
For starters, this game is excellent fun! Naturally based around the Simpson's world there is a lot of the usual humour and madness involved in the game, as well as great attention to detail with regards to where everything is in the game with regards to the television series. Simpsons fans will appreciate this.
As opposed to all-out racing the game is based around certain missions that push the comic storyline forwards. Such missions often include following a car to a certain place, or rushing around to a timer whilst collecting certain things. There are races that you can take part in to win money which can later be used to buy new vehicles or clothing for the characters. The game is completed in such a way, not just by doing the missions but also by collecting all of the cars available and by collecting certain bonus items along the way.
This game is great fun although it is also highly addictive. I have seen family members spend 4 hours at a time sat in front of it! Its not serious at all although how could you expect such a thing from the Simpsons?!
