Summary: Unfortunately I thought this would be a fun simpsons game. However, little did I realize that I already had this for the playstation 2 from years ago! The graphics are horrible and the characters are difficult to control.
Summary: I've been an avid fan of The Simpsons since it was first introduced when I was 5 years old, and I have played Simpsons games through the generations and been able to forgive them for being sub-par in quality. This Simpsons game is unlike its previous ones... this one is unforgiveable. The bottom line is that the camera angles of the game are too frustrating to manage. Other 3D games have their share of camera frustrations, but none so bad as this game.
Summary: When The Simpsons Game came out, I was very excited. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. The game is average all around, with the exception of the controls, which are downright annoying. Unlike the Simpsons: Hit and Run, I got bored with this game after the first few levels. It seems to me that the levels are designed to annoy you, and what's even stranger is the fact that you never seem to be rushed in a level, like you don't need to be anywhere.
Fun for about 30 minutes. Then frustrating and annoying.

Summary: I'm sure hard-core Simpsons fans would enjoy this game but it gets tedious and repetitive. The controls are hard to get used to and I wanted to turn it off after the first 30 minutes. Rent it, don't buy.
Summary: If you are buying or playing this game you had better LOVE the Simpsons in general. The game play is rough at best with th ecamera shifting all around. The animated sceens look spectacular however once game play starts the visuals decline big time. It's the same run around and punch with Homer for 2 levels and that's when I just quit. I couldn't waste anymore time on a game that was this unappealing.
Summary: I rented this game. I'm so glad I didn't buy it. The camera never seems to be where you want it to be. The "hidden packages" are supremely pointless. The super powers vary from underwhelming to annoying. (Marge's bullhorn is one of the most irritating things I've ever heard.) The cut scenes are entertaining. I stopped playing in the middle of a level, because the game just isn't held together well.
If you have to play it, do it on another sytem than the Wii

Summary: I picked up The Simpsons off an Amazon Goldbox deal for $25, hoping that it would live up to my expectations. While the comedy put into it by the writers and cast is superb, the game itself is another matter. Remember how graphics looked back in the late 90's? When 3D was still relatively new but anti-aliasing hadn't taken off yet? That's where this game dates visually. The "jaggies" are EVERYWHERE (again, this applies to the Wii version).
Summary: [UPDATE**] - Ive played this title a bit more over the long weekend, and while the controls are still less than ideal, it is actually a fun title. Mario Galaxy is still far more fun to play... but the multiplayer option in this game is nice. However, the gameplay is still quite akward, even with 2 players. I will keep this game, and I am sure I will finish it one day....
Nice try, but ultimately an unsatisfying experience

Summary: I've been keeping an eye on the development of this game and I was really looking forward to its release. Now that I've had the chance to sit down and play it, I'm afraid it wasn't anything like I thought it would be. Before I go into any negatives, I will say that the script/spoken dialog in the game is hilarious and features the original cast voices. The character animation is also done nicely. Unfortunately, that is where the positive comments end.
