Before I go into any negatives, I will say that the script/spoken dialog in the game is hilarious and features the original cast voices. The character animation is also done nicely. Unfortunately, that is where the positive comments end. The play control is a disaster. It was difficult to control the various special moves for each character and camera tracking was horrible. You can manually reposition the view point being shown, however I found myself constantly needing to do so in order to make my way through the levels. Overall, it just felt like I wasn't in control of the character and often times it was very frustrating trying to jump from platform to platform only to fall down and have to start a tedious process of getting back to where I was at all over again. The constant need to switch between characters became annoying as well. I really, really wanted to love this game, but I am so disappointed. I'm also really upset that I actually paid full price for this title as well. If this was $19.99 I wouldn't feel so burned right now.
In short I am glad I was able to try the game out and not have to buy it. It might be worth it to me (for the Simpson's value alone) if the game was $20 dollars or so.
For non-Simpsons fans, the concept is a lot of fun, but the gameplay can get boring at times. You work with characters and their special abilities to solve puzzles and beat challenges in each level. It's pretty easy, except the controls, like most 3D games, can drive you nuts at certain times. The camera is downright horrible in a handful of places. The visuals are very similar to the show, and the short clips (movies) are spot-on. Most of the later missions are clever parody, though pretty repetitive gameplay.
Update: After a few weeks of playing, I have to say I enjoyed myself, even though I found myself yelling at the television when I couldn't figure out my next move or time a jump exactly right. I adjusted the sensitivity of the X and Y axis on the controller, and that seemed to make a big difference. Co-op play was a clever addition to give the game a good amount of replay value. In fact, co-op is where the game shines. Playing with a partner is literally twice the fun. For the most part, the challenges are entertaining, and the script is a riot. Sure, the first couple of levels are a little too easy, but the game really picks up by the fourth mission. If you're bored early, give it a chance, the game definitely comes around.
I'm a huge Simpsons fan, and so far, the game has met all of my expectations. If I were not a Simpsons fan, I think this game would be more of a renter or a used-buy. It will crack everyone up, fan or not.Read more ›
