The Simpsons Game
I really liked the Simpson's game and i had pretty high expectations. It has 16 fun levels where you can play as homer, Bart, Lisa, and Marge. Usually u play as 2 characters at once but the first level is only with homer. The Bite Nights are also really fun with homer but i don't much care for the wings thing with Bart. The levels can be challenging when u get stuck but if u use cheats it will ruin it. I beat the game without cheats and it didn't take me too long. You'll catch on very quickly and its a great game but it could use more multiplayer parts. i recommend this game to all ages basically and this game is also good for other systems such as Wii, PS2 and any other station this game is eligible for. Buy this game its also got a great price on it.
Good, slightly tired.
This is a good 3d platformer/light puzzler. The gameplay if fun, though mashing X in a fight gets old quickly. Character's abilities are interesting and fun to use, for the most part. Bart's abilities are somewhat boring, and Marge's adds a kind of awkward RTS type of gameplay that can be frustrating. The formula for this game, however, is somewhat tired, and it's hard to get really into it. There's a central hubworld (Springfield) from which you access each mission. The missions are mostly linear, but require a small bit of critical thinking when puzzle elements come into play. There's plenty of humor in the game, but the dialog from the characters, which the game claims is "original" is taken mostly from episodes of the show, and repeats a bit too often. the animation is good for the most part, but occasionally the cel-shading reveals geometry errors or strange pieces of the character model. This game just isn't as good as I remember the GTA-like game on the previous generation of systems being.
A Great Game!
The Simspons Video Game for the Xbox 360 is a great game. The storyline of the game is great. Bart tries to by a GTA like game: "Grand Theft Scratchy." However, Marge does not approve and takes the game away. Bart soons finds a copy of the Simpsons Video Game manual and learns that each one of the Simpsons has a special power. Marge can start an angry mob, Homer can become a giant ball, Lisa can summon Buddha, and Bart becomes Bartman. The game has some flaws, butthey are easily overlooked. The controls are hard to master at first, but they ar rather simple. The camera is also hard to get used to, but doesn't impact the game too much. The animation is rather good, you can actually believe that you are in Springfield. The interface is good, but trying to decipher your buddy's health is hard to read at times, especially during boss battles. Another flaw is that the game is rather short, but you can go back at any time and do the time trials. The sound of the game is good, and the comedy is hilarious! And as I said at the beginning of the review, the storyline is great! If you are looking for a great game that will make you crack up, this game is for you. Also, the parodies in the game are beyond funny. They make fun of Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Donkey Kong, and even the Sims. The bottom line is that this game is a must buy. Now get out there and get this game!!!
This is a great game for all Simpsons fans!!
If you are a fan of the show or hit and run Im sure you will love this game.
The Simpson's game is a fun game and all, but it's way to short
I'll go ahead and say that The Simpson's game is almost a typical platform adventure game with multiple playable characters. At the start of the game, you may be fooled into thinking this is an open ended adventure sort of GTA syle because you're seemingly in a large town. A little exploration and you'll figure out, that it's not really. And what especially hurts the game kinda here is that theres a bridge leading to the other half of the town thats drawn up so you can't cross. So theres always that second half of the town you can see, but you'll never ever get to heck out. Despite the first impression you go about mission more like the traditional platformer. You'll make you way to one specific point to be taken to a completly different area to complete some sort of level. For the gameplay it'self, it control much like any other platform game you've played. You can do the double jumping, and the running and all the characters have their own unique abilities and power ups. I mean there really isn't much to explain because you've seen all of this before. While the gameplay really doesn't present anything new or profound, it's still very playable and enjoyable. Most of your enjoyment will be from the game's humor, which really helps give The Simpson's game personality. So much effort went into the script and the cut scenes you can easily forgive the Simpson's game for short comings on gameplay. The graphics are very nice and cartoony. And EA did an excelent job capturing the Simpsons style. I wasn;t sure why the game looked so much more cartoony than any other cell shaded game I've seen thus far, but when I looked it up, suposedly the game take the 3d cell shaded characters and some how flattens them into 2d images. I'm not sure how it works, but I'd have to say they did a good job. The voice acting is just as good as it is in the series. As is the much. As for the sound effects... Well there nothing amazing or bad about them. They get the job done. I'd say the biggest problem with the Simpson's game is that it really doesn't give you much to do. The single player game ia little less than six hours long. And once you've beat it theres no reason to go back and play it again. After that there are time trials, but they aren't anything special, and I can't imagine why anyone would want to do them other than to get the achievements for them. The single player does offer co-op play though, but it's not much different from playing solo. There is nothing more to speak of as to what you can do in the game. There isn't even any X-box live multiplayer options. And for the price of fourty bucks I really can't reccomend even Simpsons fans to buy this. It's a fun and funny game and I'd deffinatly would suggest a rental here or wait till it's down a little cheaper.
Its a good buy
This is gonna sound dumb but the graphics are a liitle "Too" cartoony.It is a good cartoon game though because in a way its a lot like Grand Theft Auto so yea its a good buy
kud suk, kud rok
this game has potential, but it could b ruined easily i'm not sure if this is based on the movie, but if it is they gotta b careful, that is a disaster waitin 2 happen ! if they run out of idea's they'r probably jist gonna make it so the player has to jist play through the movie, wich wud sukkkk ! the title doesn't make its sound like it's gonna b a driving game like the past games, but that would b cool if they incorperated the driving aspect, i absolutely LOVED how u could steal cars in hit and run, but even a little more freedum wud b nice, and last of all the other games had multiple levels, different parts of springfield e.g. downtown springfield, entertainment district, evergreen terace area, powerplant, isn't that cool !, NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO ! skate is doing it, oblivion is doing it, wut is it, ONE LEVEL they NEED to make this game with one enormous level
The Simpsons Greatest Adventure!!
This game by far surpassed my expectations. Since I am a simpsons fan I decided to get the game thinking it was going to be an okay game but it turned out to be a great game! In this game you can play as one of four characters;Marge, Homer, Lisa, and Bart. Every character has special powers and can get costumes for the characters. These characters with the neat additions really keep you interested in the game but by far my favorite thing was the movies you earn while playing the game. Overall I would say that this game is a terrific game and I would recommend it to everyone who loves the simpsons or anyone else.
cool, like the show!!!
the first thing that i realized when i played this game was that it was almost eczactley like the show!!!! they all said stuff that the characters would say in the the show. they acted like they would in the show. it makes the game all the more fun!!!! the game is fun faced paced and creative. it can get real tricky and turn into a kind of puzzle game like the lego game series. but in order to have fun with the game u have to persever. thanks for reading!!!!! :D
I got this game expecting it to be like any other game ruined, but i found this enjoyable. I love the simpsons, and this is one good addition to my simpsons collection.
