Simpsons Hit & Run, The Box art Well it seems everyone is doing something or another thats been seen in a game before. Well this time, The Simpsons are taking on Grand Theft Auto. While it isnt the greatest game in the world, it sure as hell is a fun game, and sets a new standard for the Simpsons Video Game franchise.

Simpsons Hit and Run is a take on the popular grand theft auto series, except all violence (aside from being able to kick your neighbors) has been eliminated, and replaced with humor. In Hit and Run, you follow various missions based on a story written by the writers of the simpsons. Most of the missions, like escorting, chasing and destroying, and finding people. It is all basically the same, but destroying different things and whatnot. The car physics are crazy, and are a lot of fun. There are many cars to choose from, between different, trucks, and suvs, and sedans. You can use anyones car, and you can do anything you want, its the complete simpsons world!

While the game is no visual masterpiece, it recreates the town of spring field perfectly. There are some nice lighting effects, character movements, and it looks nice. The characters are a bit blocky, but its all passable.

With original simposns music, and the whole cast lending thier voices to the game, there really isnt anything wrong with the sound!

Maybe some more mission types, but otherwise, its a good simpsons game for any fan!

Overall: 9.0 / 10
Gameplay: 8.0 / 10
Visuals: 7.0 / 10
Sound: 9.0 / 10
