The Simpsons: Hit & Run User Reviews

9.0

Simpson Hit and Run.

The good:

Most of this game was amazing. The graphics were great, and the missions were fun and challenging. The voice-overs/cutscenes were all funny and the plot was cool.

The bad:

The only thing I didn't like about this game was the multiplayer. The developers could have made the multiplayer a race like one of the races on single player but instead it was this weird top down race that looked like it came from an 8-bit game.

Summary:

Gameplay
The gameplay was fantastic. I found some of the levels got a bit repetitive but for the most part it was exciting and fun the whole way through. It was challenging enough to be fun and just going around and destroying stuff was one of my favorite parts of the game.
I liked the hit and runs (the cops will chase after you if you destroy too much stuff) but I thought they got a little too hard to escape from in the higher levels. Most of the cars were pretty easy to drive which is a huge plus also.

Graphics
I thought the graphics were great (for a gamecube game anyways). They were almos...

Summary:






[ Introduction ]

For one of the first official The Simpsons games I've ever gotten my hands on and taken the time to play in it's entirety, I was really impressed by the full turn-out that I received upon contact. I was quite lucky for this, since this certain title in this franchise happened to be one of the earliest in the new generation breakthrough back in the mid-range days of the Gamecube. It offers a great experience for new and old fans alike(particularly old, since that's the only way you'll ever be able to catch the episode references literally laced into every stage contained w...

Grand Theft Simpsons.

The good:

Funny quotes.
Umm, err, hmm, you get the cops to chase you.
Smashing cars are pretty good.

The bad:

The peoples you kick don't die.
The missions at the last few levels are too hard.
This is pretty short.

Summary:

Lastability: 6/10.
Good replay value, although there are no rewards for finishing missions.

Graphics: 4/10.
Looks weird for PS2 but still okay graphics. Then, I guess it was okay.

Sound: 8/10.
THANK YOU! The Simpsons' actual voices are in this. And I like the sound of a car blowing up and some other stuff.

Gameplay: 5/10.
What it simply is is Homer has to go to work and finds out about the Fly Cameras. Then Bart, with Professor Frink's help, gets the Truckosaurus living but Bart gets invaded by aliens. Then Lisa has to rescue Bart. Marge tries to make Bart speak normal. Apu the...

GTA for kids!!!

The good:

The Missions - start easy but become challenging

The Graphics - wonderfully recreated in a lush Springfield

The real voices - every character could easily be recognised by the insanely brilliant cast of the Simpsons , each with legendary quotes through-out

The excellent animations - nice little cut animations through-out

The longitivey - with extras such as cameras to destroy and cards to collect , this is nearly a game in itself

The range of characters - every major character (and a lot of minor ones too) is here to complete a wonderful game

The bad:

Becomes quite repetetive
Suprisingly difficult in the latter stages

Summary:

The game is basically GTA in Springfield. Everything is here , from general kicking/punching and carjacking , and every Simpsons character (and several others are excellently recreated with their legendary quotes and the like .Don't be fooled by the exterior , although the graphics appear to be blocky and childlike , the game can become very difficult and some missions are very challenging. With the array of unlockables and little mini-games , this will keep you going for months , a must buy.

quote: Comic book guy: "Best simpson game, EVER!"

The good:

The graphics
The missons
The storyline
The level structure
The humor
The collector cards
The costume change feature

The bad:

final level difficulty

Summary:

This game is SO fun! For what Hit&Run is, it's really a complete game, plus it's absurdly fun! So, where to start...?
Well, the places in springfield are shaped for fun exploring and driving, and are SO vast, it'll take you some time just to get all the way through, So it stays fun and exciting.
You also have the "Hit and run!" meter where you can attract the attention of the police. At that point, it's up to you to run from the law! If you get caught, you get a 50 coin fine. It really makes you feel alive when you're in hit and run mode though.
The storyline is perfectly sculpted using what t...

"Excellent, Smithers..."

The good:

- It's the Simpsons. For real.
- It's hillarious.
- Entertaining missions.
- Diverse maps of Springfield.
- Great, fun music.
- Absolutely crazy cars, and they're all great.
- Nice, solid graphics that capture the spirit well.
- So much to do, so little time.
- Did I mention that it's the Simpsons? For real?
- Better than "Grand Theft Auto".

The bad:

- Overwhelmingly big.
- Slow movement on foot.
- Repetative mission styles.
- Repetative jokes soon makes them annoying.

Summary:

"The Simpsons" is a work of genius. Anyone who disagrees is wrong... sorry, but they are. The difficulty with such a great thing, however, is translating that outstanding success into the video game world. For an example of how not to do this, look at "Tomorrow Never Dies" on the PSone and the countless games from Disney that, quite frankly, seem to be made for the bargain bins of GAME. For an example of how to do it, thankfully... well, you're reading a review of one such example.

"The Simpsons: Hit & Run" is outstanding. While some may moan that it is, basically, a weak copy of "Grand Thef...
