STAFF REVIEW of The Simpsons Road Rage (Xbox)

The Simpsons Road Rage Box art I had heard a lot of bad things about this game before I bought it, so maybe my lowered expectations made me like it a lot more. In the end, I found the Simpson's Road Rage to be a very fun and funny game. It's been compared to Crazi Taxi, but I think it's better. For starters it's funnier, it has 4 times the amounts of cars and characters, and more courses than your average Crazi Taxi game. I will admit that it is not without it's flaws. Chiefly, some of the levels are poorly designed and not worth playing (the Nuclear Power Plant and Springfield Mountains). It's too easy to get stuck in dead ends in some places, which can frustrate some. And there are a few characters that have horrible vehicles that are not useful on any of the courses (Barney's plow).


The gameplay is easy to learn and the controls are simple. This may annoy some hardcore gamers looking for depth. But, if you're looking for a fun easy to pick up and play game, this is it. There's a lot of hidden stuff on each level, and hidden shortcuts that keep things interesting.


The visuals are nice. Lot's of color and details thrown in from Simpson's episodes. It's a blast driving through a fully rendered Simpson's neighborhood.


The cast of the Simpsons lent their voices to the game. Lot's of jokes and more depth that I thought there would be.
