Being one of the few hugely devoted Simpson's fans that religiously watches back to back episodes oncable TVevery night, buys the box sets and regularly attempts to defend the recent series lack of form on the pretence they usually have at least one laugh out loud Homer moment, we've been rooting for a decent Simpsons game for years.
Having to put up with people claiming that Hit 'n' Run was a 'good' Simpsons game (no it wasn't) was bad enough but the fact it turned out to be one of the bestselling games of all time just compounded our misery. Thankfully, EA's Simpsons effort is not a Crazy Taxi clone - although the story line, penned by The Simpsons writers is a parody of a series of recent game titles. So we get levels titled things like Shadow Of The Colossal Donut, Medal Of Homer and Grand Theft Scratchy.
