Go mano a mano against a friend in a duel to see who can raise the target amount of money first.

Excerpt: It\'s everything you love about the Simpsons, and more! Well, at least everything I love about the Simpsons. This is basically a Crazy Taxi-kind of game. The object is to pick up more passengers, hence gaining money. You can play as almost any of your favorite characters--unless your favorite character, or just play, and pick a favorite character. The cars handle like real cars, and the only problem is that in some towns, it is too easy to get stuck.
Excerpt: The evil Mr Burns has decided to buy out the Springfield Transit Corporation and in the process converted all the buses to nuclear power and raised the prices of the fares.But the good people of Springfield have decided to take a stand by hiring out there services (no not that kind of wayI know what your thinking) by driving people to their preferred destination.Your aim is to get one million dollars to buy back the Transit Corporation and rid the nuclear powered buses...
Excerpt: The thought of a Simpson's driving game is exciting to both gamer and fan alike. Who wouldn't want to cruise around the streets of Springfield with the Simpsons? Being a long time fan of the show, I'll admit to be one of the first people out there to grab this game. The game is very different than what I pictured but will not disappoint most players. The game follows the story of Mr. Burns seizing all the public transportation for his new breed of Nuclear Bus.
Summary: Simpsons Road Rage has drawn many comparisons to Crazy Taxi and with good reason. It’s derivative, but it also features Springfield’s favorite family. See how it measures up.
Pros: Hilarious and ample voice samples from actual Simpsons cast, Lots of great stuff to unlock, Lots of variety: Multiplayer, multiple vehicles & levels, Recreates Springfield in a manner very faithful to the show, Seasonal characters are a nice built-in bonus
Cons: Derivative, and a very pale copy at that, Gameplay isn’t anything special and gets quite repetitive, No special moves, like boosts, Only redeeming factor of this game is Simpsons
Conclusion: The Simpsons Raod Rage ist ein dreister, aber durchaus spaßiger Crazy Taxi-Klon, der zwar dank Freispielmöglichkeiten und 2-Spieler-Modus mehr zu bieten hat als das Original, sich diese Vorzüge aber durch technische Schwachpunkte leider wieder relativieren. Für Fans ist der Fun-Racer aber durchaus eine Überlegung wert.
Pros: viele Fahrer und Strecken freispielbar, gute Nutzung der Lizenz, ordentlicher 2-Spielermodus
Cons: Grafik unterer Durchschnitt, sehr lange Ladezeiten, Missionsmodus zu schnell durch
Excerpt: Sorti sur toutes les consoles salon dernière génération, c'est au tour de la Gameboy Advance d'avoir son Road Rage. Le concept reste inchangé : vous êtes dans la peau d'un personnage du dessin animé des Simpsons et devrez faire le taxi. Mais contrairement aux autres versions, le titre se révèle être bien plus fun sur portable. Alors bouclez votre ceinture, ça risque de secouer !
