Really captured the TV show

Summary: This game followed close the TV show. You basically have to do Taxi missions with the Simpsons cast. It has most of the original cast and some funny parts. I really got a good idea what Springfield looked like from the game. The rewards were a little outrageous to get, but other than that it was great. What would have made it better was if you was able to get out of the cars. Of course that will be in Hit and Run.
Summary: At first Glance the Simpsons Road Rage seems like a relatively simple game. There are a number of modes of play. Sunday Drive allows you to cruise the area at your own pace, find the sneaky shorcuts and figure out the performance qualities of the vehicles. For instance Marge's Canyonero will punch through roadblocks with ease, but doesn't have the roadholding capabilities of Snake's or Homers Car.
Summary: This game is just like Crazy Taxi except done in the most horrific way possible... 1 out of 5 stars! This game had like no good gameplay except pick up people and drop em off and a very short story mode...Which is also crap... Nothing really to do except listening to annoying bad music which isn't even good and really really bad gameplay.... Hit and Run is waaaaaaaaaaaaay better then this malarchy.... 1 out 5 HORRIBLE GAME! Lates..
Summary: It's a pity the language in this game prevents it from being playable by Everyone. Aside from the Bart catchphrase "Who the hell are you?" (no real biggie there), Homer seems to like using "jerka**" rather than a more tame "jerkface" or simply "jerk", which would've made this one much more suitable for the 7 and up group. That out of the way, this is a fairly enjoyable game in two-player mode.
Summary: This game is pretty boring. It's just like Crazy Taxi, just with the Simpsons as the cast. The game is just the same thing over and over again, you pick up passengers and drop them of at the designated area in the time limit you are given, so the game is to repeticious. I rarely play it anymore. The only thing I really liked were some of the silly things that the characters said, other than that, there's no reason to get this game.
Not as fun as I thought it would be...Too repetitive...

Summary: I saw this game on sale and I snatched it up immediately. Gameplay was a somewhat difficult and repetitive. This game is sitting in my collection growing dust. Although, it helps to pass the time every once in a blue moon it is definately not the the most fun.
Summary: This was one of the first games I bought when I got the PS2 about 4 years ago. Now, my son who is 6 and I play this game almost nightly. The main focus of the game is going around picking up Springfield residents and dropping them off at their desired locations around town. This earns you money which allows you to unlock new characters and cars, and new Springfield locations. The gameplay is fast and fun, the controls are easy to use, and the graphics are fantastic.
Summary: This is a good game the first 10 minutes, after a while its just the same and so repetetive...the goal is to gain enough money to save the town or something, but the way to gain money is by picking up people and driving them around. You have to play for months doing the same thing over and over to win.
Summary: Now I may admit that all of the Simpsons games are rip offs. The Simpsons Wrestling was a WWF rip off (a good game, but poor graphics). Simpsons Skateboarding was a Tony Hawk rip off (but it totally sucks). And now the Simpsons Road Rage rips offs Crazy Taxi. Now by that you would think all the Simpsons games suck, right? Not! The Simpsons Road Rage is one of the best Simpsons no one of the best Multi-Console games (it's on GC, GBA, PS2,Xbox, and PC).
Summary: The novelty of this game wears off very quickly. At first it was fun to play as several of the Simpsons characters but when they started repeating their dialogue for the 50th time it became mighty tedious and tiresome. The gameplay is very simple. If GTA: Vice City is the Lego Technic of road rage games then Simpsons: Road Rage is, without a doubt the Lego Duplo. It is SOOO aimed at kids. No one over the age of 13 will be particularly impressed with this.
