Player's Review

There's a lot to like about this game, mainly the great cel-shaded 3D that looks very much like an actual episode of the Simpsons. The cut-scenes look almost exactly like a Simpsons episode, and the voice acting is superb (obviously, since all the original voices are used). The game has a good amount of humor as well, considering it's a Simpsons game. There are even some very obscure jokes for superfans (in one level there are some solid gold "dogs with bees in their mouths, so when they bark they shoot bees at you" ).

Unfortunately, that doesn't necessarily make up for the gameplay, which cannot fairly be called anything but boring. Even the traditional side-scrolling platformer format can be fun (see The New Super Mario Bros), but in the Simpsons game it seems they just copied and pasted a bunch of terrain and bad guys and left it at that. The most exciting moments are where the cooperative play (you switch off between Simpsons family members, each with different abilities) is used to its fullest potential. Of course, even that is overused and becomes tedious.
