Graphics - quite good. This game doesn't rely on special effects alone to impress you. I've seen games (and films) which are all graphics and no real plot or storyline.
Storyline - Funny with an ironic twist.
Vehicles - Plenty to choose from, from the family sedan to the Mr Plow truck. Or you could just stop a car from the road, hop in and go for a ride!
Missions - Fun with all the adrenaline flowing. For once, the missions are actually challenging and not ridiculously easy.
Humour - lots of it, making the game light-hearted and enjoyable.
I could go on forever, but there isn't enough space. What I'm saying is that The Simpsons Hit and Run is a great game that I am proud to have played. Ignore the other bad reviews; they don't know a good game when they see one.
Be warned tho', running it under Windows ME, I had to upgrade from Direct x 6.0 to the latest download available (v9) to get it to work and this stopped my younger son's games working (like Thomas the Tank Engine). Apart from that, good value for money.
Very fun levels, which get more challenging as you progress, but could be played by a 7 year old or a 70 year old, alike.
The product came with 3 CD ROMs so you have to download them chronologically, and then put the first CD back in (they're numbered).
Definitely read the manual, in case you get stuck.
The only problem that I had, is that there wasn't a manual which said what controllers were which, but that can be easily googled.
Personally, I use a wired Xbox controller, but if you do this you have to set the controls for it manually, since it's an old game, it won't set it automatically.
The game itself plays out a bit like a Simpsons episode. All of the favourite cast of characters is there in full 3D which for some people may look strange, but I really enjoyed the new look. All the familiar voices are there too. I won't go into the story line itself but I'll tell you that the game relies heavily on you driving your character to different locations around springfield. There are times when your character must leave his or her vehicle and explore an area or walk into a building, or talk to someone to get a mission, but a lot of the area is easier and faster to explore in your car.
The whole point of the hit and run is that every time, while driving, you hit a person (in true Simpsons comedy fashion) or destroy something such as a lamp post or tree you build up the 'hit &run' meter. This meter fills up pretty quick if you keep hitting things and once you go over a critical level you are charged with hit and run and have to escape Chief Wigam's car before he catches and fines you. The whole point is to try and avoid building up the hit and run meter while also racing around as fast as you can.
The game is simply hilarious due to the fact that every time a character gets in or out of their car, hits a person, hits something, crashes the car, etc you get a very funny comment such as Homer's 'Ow, my ass!Read more ›
