Storyline

Something weird is happening in the town of Springfield and as usual, the Simpsons are right in the middle of it. Tiny cameras disguised as wasps are flying about. Mysterious black vans seem to be spying on the citizens. A new soda appears to be making people crazy. And while all this is going on, Bart Simpson disappears, apparently by a UFO. It's up to Homer and his family to solve the mystery. Written by BKelly9505

Quotes

Comic Book Guy: If my knowledge of sci-fi movies is correct, which it is, the black car is an advanced probe for the mothership. Now, if you're through, I'm going to spend my last hours on Earth complaining about movies on the internet.
Homer Simpson: The gift of life is wasted on you.
Comic Book Guy: Yes, I recommend you obtain a zombie car. It will protect you well but it runs on human brains, a slight drawback.
Homer Simpson: I've got plenty of those.

After all these years, they get it right.
11 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is an "old" game in the gaming world as I write this...but I just re-installed it on my PC and was reintroduced to how good the game was and still is. There have been several Simps based games over the years and every single one of them has been TERRIBLE. This is the only one that get's the right balance between the Simps universe and actual decent gameplay. Many call this The Simpsons meet GTA...not quite. This game bares no relation to GTA other than you can get in and out of cars and run around on foot. Vastly different gameplay styles in this and GTA. What you do get is Springfield split into various sections, so you can't explore the WHOLE of the great city in 1 go. You get 7 levels and each level is based on a separate part of Springfield...some repeated more than once. The basics of the game have you running or driving around completing various tasks for the residents of Springfield (driving, racing, collecting, etc), all of you faves are here in one form or another, and voiced by the original actors too. The story is unimportant, but it involves aliens and cameras hidden in robot bees...who cares? There is plenty to see and do, many references to past Simpsons shows to keep even the biggest Simps fan happy. Hidden missions and side quests aplenty.

My main gripe was, it was too easy. First time I ever played this game I finished each mission first time around, no real challenge for the hardened gamer. Even the side quests and finding "hidden" items/cards was easy as the levels are pretty small really. You can explore, but it won't take long to learn each level inside out due to the lack of size each level is. But it was still fun to play. I had a smile on my face all the way through due to the in jokes and references.

It's not a GREAT game, it just seems great as all the past Simps based games have been so bad. It's just good. The gameplay is nothing really new or revolutionary, but it works just fine. The side quests will give you something to do even if you finish the game and didn't cover them first time around.

But my main query is this...why no sequel after all these years, the only good Simpsons based game and they don't want to follow it up? They were on to something with this game, they could take this idea and improve it vastly now.
