The Simpsons Game review

Ay caramba - it's the first quality Simpsons game


  • Hilarious Simpsons quotes/characters
  • Videogame in-jokes are great
  • Co-op is implemented well


  • Some jokes fall flat
  • Camera isn't forgiving
  • Needs more Milhouse

Oct 30, 2007

Not so much a cohesive game as a series of "episodes" with co-op play in mind, The Simpsons Game is nonetheless consistently funny, occasionally inspired, not too taxing and diverse. A bit like your average episode of the TV show then, which is why this is head and shoulders above the spin-off games that have clouded Springfield's finest down the years.

It starts with a typically bizarre Homer dream involving chocolate rabbits, and from there goes all post-modern when Bart discovers a manual for The Simpsons Game that gives his family superpowers.
