Summary: I love the Simpsons and really enjoyed the version for the Xbox 360, so when I saw it on sale at my local retail store I though why not? Man, was I stupid. This version (DS), in my opinion has to be the worst version I have played. I thought it was quite entertaining and, of course, quite challenging, in the beginning. However, once the novelty wore off I started getting a headache from the constant repetitious dialogue. I opted actually to play the game without sound.
Summary: This game isn't that great. It violates my one big pet peeve - repetition of the same challenge over and over if you don't get it right the first time. The best part about this game is the dialogue, but even that gets repetitive when you've repeated a level about 25 times. Also, it feels like the characters don't respond well to the controller, which means you are pressing those tiny DS buttons really hard and your hands get bad cramps.
Excerpt: I picked this game up hoping that it would be as good as the family guy game was for PlayStation 2 but was incredibly underwhelmed by it. If it wasn't the Simpson's characters it would have just been a run of the mill DS game where you complete the level next level complete that next level and so on. I have the Playstation 2 version of this game which was slightly better but nothing special either in all honesty.
Summary: First off, this game does look fantastic and has some great sound and speech effects. Sadly that's the best of it. The game play is the same repetative tedious tripe that wouldn't be out of place in a game 20 years old. How do you get through the (thankfully short) levels? By sheer luck and no skill is how. The signs were bad when I realised you have infinite lives. Why do you have infinite lives? It's because you'll die, a lot.
