Does anyone here own this? and if so is it worth a buy?

I don't own it yet, but I played it for 5 days. Honestly, I love it. When you follow the missions, you have to drive, a lot. You get your standard car and then you can buy cars or stop ones going by on the streets and hitch a ride with the guys and have full control of their vehicles. It is very fun and funny. I see a lot of things in the game that remind me of old episodes. Stuff like the Monorail, Mr. Burns Casino, etc... I highly recommend it!

Everyone I've talked to that has it so far says they love it....which is strange for a Simpsons game ;)

If you are a Simpson's fan it is great.

Very funny and time just flys when you are playing it.

Amen, brother. It's definitely a game where you sit down and turn it on, then suddenly, it's three hours later.

I really like the fact that if a mission goes sour, you can restart from the pause menu (or when you've failed) and you get automatically set back at the beginning of the mission, as though you never left there. Apparently, that was not the case in GTA, and it was really annoying.

Interesting. Haven't heard any bad reviews/opinions on this. Even from the haters.

My brother rented it for his cube, and I loved it. As soon as its been out for 3 weeks, it will be at my house all the time.

There is a ton of extras to do, and I spent close to 3 hours on just the first mission finding everything.

I wouldnt mind having a map, as I suck at navigating myself, and the ablity to go in more places would be a plus as well

I don't mean to be a downer, but I feel I wasted my money on this game. After about 10 hours of playtime, I was bored. The missions are very repetitive. You are always racing your car, against a timer. The objectives differ a little -- collect stuff, smash a car, beat a car, or get somewhere -- but you're always racing against the clock.

I just found this formula really tiresome, after a while. If you like the game, I can appreciate that. I WANTED to like it, I really did. But I thought the missions were very repetitive. I don't like racing against the clock much, and it seemed like that's all I was doing, over and over.

And I didn't think the humor was that funny, either. Most of the time I found myself wishing that the character would just shut up.

It's a good game, especially if you're a Simpsons fan. There's all kinds of hidden jokes and stuff. You cant go wrong with this game. However, like the guy mentioned above it's all about racing against the clock, which i also dislike. It's a good game with a HUGE world to explore plus it's set in the Simpsons universe, what else could you ask for?
