"Do the Bartman!"
Remember Virtual Springfield? Well this is Virtual Springfield in 3D, now with the ability to play with the whole Simpsons family (except little Maggie) and Apu. Springfield is remade in 3D for you in this cool game!
The game has no boundaries, you can run across the town, take your car/steal one but be careful when driving because if your cop bar goes too high you'll get the "Hit & Run" mode, you'll have to get away from chief Wiggum and the others. Every member has it's own car, Homer has the purple car, Bart his rocket car, ... There are some bees that fly around the city, you'll have to kill these to get coins (you can also get money from other things like smashing crates and stuff). If you have enough money you can buy new clothes or a new car, be Mr Plow again! Anyway Springfield is quite large so you can drive for some hours if you want to see all the places.
Springfield has become a dangerous place because there are spy bees everywhere, aliens and other creepy things. The Simpsons have to save Springfield once again. Every players has it's own side story so you'll have 5 stories.
Graphics & Sound 9/10
They are cartoonish but so what, isn't the Simpsons on TV cartoonish too? They're in 3D now!! The whole city looks nice, a lot of colors and very detailed buildings. Your car gets damage after hitting a tree, smoke will come out, ...
The characters look nice not like others that they're all build up from blocks, nope this one is very smooth. One thing that's too bad is the camera it can be very annoying for some time. All characters have speech, there's some nice music in the game.
Play Time / Replay Ability 9.5/10
There are 7 levels in the game and each has 7 sub levels and a bonus one. In total you have 56 missions to do. You can collect all cars, costumes, cards, win all races, kill all the spy bees and drive around town, visit the buildings you see in the TV show and much much more. I give this a 9.5 because it's worth it.
Why do I give this only an 8.4? Because some glitches are annoying, the camera isn't that good but on the other hand it's THE SIMPSONS so that makes a lot good, nice graphics and speech makes this game the best Simpson game ever!
Rent or Buy? If you're a Simpson fan you HAVE to buy this game.
