    1. Introduction
    Lets be honest here, there's never been a half-way decent Simpsons game 
    on a home console... until now. Although it may have got reasonably harsh 
    criticism from the so-called experts, to a Simpsons nut, this game is  
    everything they could have ever asked for. Its blindly obvious that the 
    developers were very much aware of the Simpsons world when they made this 
    game, which gives the game a good lot of depth in the different locations 
    you will come across. Sure, the absence of some peoples favorite character 
    may annoy them, but think of how many characters there are in Springfield. 
    It would take a year just to put them all in. Lets be happy with what we 
    have, and hope that the Simpsons Skateboarding lives up to the now higher 
    expectations. Anyway, that's enough, time to get on with the FAQ.
    The many locations of Springfield are split into 6 sections. Below is a 
    list of all the different locations in each level. I have intentionally 
    left out the unimportant throw away buildings, which repeat in a number 
    of levels, for example the RX drugs shop. Anywho, If you know of anywhere 
    I have left out, feel free to e-mail me at residentbioevil@hotmail.com, 
    and I'll gladly add it in the next update, with full credit to you.
    2.1 Evergreen Terrace
    The first level you are given access to in Evergreen Terrace. This is 
    essentially a warm-up level to get some practice in. Its an alright level, 
    but not particularly big, and there isn't much to see. Still, it gets a 
    solid 3/5.
    Barriers of the Level
    To prevent you from going to the next level, there are different types 
    of barriers in your way, in Evergreen Terrace, there is a wall made of 
    rubbish, similar to the one in "A Tale of Two Springfields"

    2.2 Entertainment District
    The second level features many well-known locations from the show, 
    including Moe's Tavern and Noiseland arcade, as well as shops only 
    die-hard Simpsons fans would remember. This level gets a 4/5 from me
    Barriers of the Level

    2.3 Springfield Dam
    The Dam is home to all of the out of town places the Simpson Family have 
    visited in the past, like Kamp Krusty and Rancho Relaxo. A fairly good 
    level, although initially hard to navigate. 3/5

    2.4 Springfield Nuclear Power Plant
    Springfield Nuclear is in my opinion a very bitty level. The only main 
    attractions are the Plant and the Springfield Mall. Still, spotting all 
    the familiar shop names in the mall is interesting, but overall, the level 
    is a non- event. 2/5

    2.5 Downtown
    Personally, this is my favourite level. Its a sightseers dream, with many 
    great references to "Marge Vs The Monorail" like the remains of the short 
    lived Monorail, as well as giant Simpson family balloons hanging from the 
    Sky. A definite 5/5 for this massive level
    Barriers of the Level
    Hehe, there's a fallen over sugar lorry blocking downtown.
