The first thing that leaps out at you when you pick up Simpsons Road Rage is Crazy ... more

Taxi--it's an unashamed copy of the Sega hit and
is relatively unchanged for the Xbox version. The
premise is simple: drive around Springfield
picking up characters from the popular TV show and
depositing them at their requested destination for
cash.  The graphics are colourful, yet not overly
detailed--but then that's in keeping with the
cartoon style of the show. This keeps the action
at a nice and frenetic pace. The levels are pretty
big, with a multitude of flash jumps and short
cuts for show-offs; most of the scenery is
destructible too, and that can add to the game's
satisfaction. All of the locales are recognisable,
from Moe's Bar to Grandpa Simpson's retirement
home.  The main element of the game is the
aforementioned Crazy Taxi-esque "Road Rage" mode.
There are also Sunday Drive, multiplayer and
mission modes. Sunday Drive allows you to pootle
around the various levels at leisure for both
sightseeing and tactical route-planning reasons;
this is the best way to find those sneaky short
cuts and hidden areas. Story mode adds a little
extra sparkle to the game, with a set series of
missions to complete--for example, Homer's skived
off work for the afternoon and you, as Bart, have
to sneak your dad past the evil Mr Burns and back
into work.  As with most racing games, you're
rewarded for reaching set point totals and
completing the missions, but the difference with
Simpsons Road Rage is that you get to choose your
reward, be it unlocking one of the secret
characters, like Groundskeeper Willie and his
tractor, or opening extra maps, like the
Springfield nuclear power plant. The real high
point of Simpsons Road Rage, though, is the sound.
No Homer-a-likes here--each character has their
own real voice from the show, the one-liners
aren't too repetitive and do lend themselves to
the type of situation that the characters find
themselves in, and some of the lines are
laugh-out-loud funny. All in all, recommended for
fans of the show, Crazy Taxi nuts and those gamers
who are partial to unpretentious pick-up-and-play
gaming. --Laurent S Hall

Taxi for Hugh Jars, Doh.

AdvantagesSo much fun on two player mode.

DisadvantagesNot enough Missions and Levels

"The Game ******** It wasn’t going to be long before some bright spark decided to use the potential of the most successful and popular cartoon series ever and turn it into a computer game. Then Simpson’s Road Rage appears – a game that is so much fun I’m surprised the government hasn’t slapped a tax on it. The basic idea is that your chosen Simpson’s character is a taxi driver and you have to pick up fares ..." Read review

Move over sunday drivers

AdvantagesGood playability, Good Sound, Very entertaining

DisadvantagesA Bit monotonous

"...than write a review of the XBOX which we all know is quite simply the best games console on the market. I will instead deal with the true heart of great gaming and enjoyment! The games! Under the microscope today is the "The Simpsons Road Rage" This game was originally released on PS2 but unfortunately I never had the opportunity to play on that platform so can make no comparison. It has now been enhanced for the Xbox and you can pick it at your ..." Read review

AdvantagesAny age can play

DisadvantagesLoading each time you complete your level

"When we first got the Simpsons road rage game i thought "OH, another boring game, the kids will like it though," then we put it on....... I was like a kid in a sweet shop! " let me have a go" "let me have a go" lol, the first thing i noticed is how colourful it is, and it opens with Mr Burns in his office talking and it's just like watching the programme! it has clips in it and everyone has the same voices and smart remarks you see on telly so ..."

Mmmmmmm, racing....

AdvantagesGreat characters (of course), fun

DisadvantagesCan become monotonous

"If you love the Simpsons, it's difficult not to love a game like this. Basically, Mr Burns has decided to monopolise the transport in Springfield and so the residents have set up their own taxi firm. You have to choose who you will be and drive round picking up others characters and dropping them off as quickly/ safely/ destructively as you can. Each character has an appropriate car, e.g. you could choose Marge in her Canyonero, or Lisa in an electric ..." Read review

great game almost like watching the series.

Advantageslots of fun and can choose any character

Disadvantagesyou have to complete levels before moving to next one or to win a extra character

"...different simpons chartacters to be the driver, and choose different sorts of things to do. e.g the taxi run. where you have a certain amount of time to pick up other characters and drop them to where they are going before you pick up the next character etc.. the one thing that i didnt really like about the game was that before you can move to the next race you have to complete the first one and for beginers this can be pretty hard. you also have ..."
