The Simpsons Arcade Game (XBLA)

Video Game Generation
15 February 2012
  • Summary: Backbone Entertainment did a nice job of porting this game over from the arcade. I just wish they had added a few more things to it. I am glad to have the option to play the Japanese ROM though. Even though I definitely enjoyed the game, I still felt the $10 price tag was a bit steep for something so brief and unilayered.
  • Pros: Another classic game finally comes to home console., Wow, it’s an actual FUN game to play with friends.  No military BS, no sniping at each other, just a few good laughs., The game stands the test of time.
  • Cons: Yet another amazingly brief quarter muncher.  Did we really blow that much cash on games with so little to them?, Despite being a good game, the price is too high for what you get.

The Simpsons Arcade Game review (X360)

  • Excerpt: Certainly, you’ll see a large number of recycled goons, but the variety is still impressive considering the game’s era. There are pot-bellied businessmen, women with afros, ninja warriors, ghosts and lanky janitors, among others. New stages always have a new threat or two, and even familiar adversaries will mix things up by bringing weapons to the brawl. You can do the same thing yourself.

The Simpsons Arcade Game Review

4 February 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s been requested for like the longest time, and for good reason.  Konami’s 1991 arcade take on The Simpsons is, without a doubt, one of the best video games the animated family has ever seen.  Granted, that’s mostly because the home games featuring the likes of Homer, Bart and the rest of the clan have outright sucked, namely garbage like Virtual Bart and Bart vs. the Space Mutants .

  • Excerpt: It’s been 21 years since The Simpsons Arcade Game first debuted, and in that time, it’s never had a console translation — until now. Unlike the deceptively titled 2009 iPhone game, this version is every inch the classic that lit up arcades in 1991, right down to the pixelated visuals and scratchy voice samples. And it holds up astoundingly well.
  • Pros: + Offers a memorably strange, ultraviolent version of Springfield to smash through., + Original
  • Cons: ? Seriously, why’d this take two decades to come to consoles?

The Simpsons Game (Xbox 360) Review

12 March 2009
  • Summary: This one is definitely for the fans. is a little simplistic and repetitive in terms of pure gameplay, so non-fans of the show might not appreciate what’s on tap here. But long-time viewers will absolutely love it. It actually looks like the show, and all the familiar voices and trademark sense of humor help complete the package. If ever a game was more than the sum of its parts, it’s this one.

The Simpsons Game Review

4 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Bart Simpson wants to meet Zelda. Lisa thinks marketing money should go into making better video games and Mario and Sonic are trapped in endlessly-spinning EA-owned hamster wheels. Find parody funny? Good. There's a lot more where that came from in The Simpsons Game. Those of you looking for the game of the movie, move on. Looks like we won't be getting that.
