The Simpsons: Road Rage was a clean cut, crazy take off of Crazy Taxi. The game came with lots of fun and kept the gamer in the Springfield mindset with the goofy artwork. The Simpsons: Hit and Run is a take off of the series Grand Theft Auto games. Like Road Rage, Hit and Run keeps the gamer entertained with many aspects of the game.

The storyline of Hit and Run takes a large positive leap from the lacking plot of Road Rage, keeping a "true to the Simpsons" feel. Starting with a simple number of shopping errands, the story evolves into an investigation and then a whacked out Simpsonic final level.
The gameplay and control of Hit and Run is much more realistic than the goofy Road Rage. The car control will remind you of many other greatly developed car games you have played and the on foot control will always encourage you to loot away from your vehicle. With realistic yet easy-to-master control, Hit and Run creates a very pleasing interface.
Alike Road Rage, Hit and Run will keep you laughing at the voice recordings of the Simpsons cast as you crash into people, fall off of ledges and run around on foot. The lines uttered from the characters in Hit and Run are very true to the Simpsons show which gains the game much credit.
One negative aspect of Hit and Run would have to be attributed to its replay value. The game is extremely fun the first time through and becomes a challenge as the levels progress, but once the missions have all been completed, there remains little left to do. The gamer can sweep through each level again collecting and destroying certain items they may have missed. This option does grant the game credit for replay value, but not much.
The Simpsons: Hit and Run is a title worthy to be of Simpsons merchandise.

Overall, this is a pretty good game. Much better than I would have expected. The best part is that the game carries the typical Simpsons humor. I recommend that you spend some time just driving around in Springfield to check out a lot of things that you will miss during missions. It took me a while to spot a sign in front of a trailer park that said "14 days without a tornado" for instance. The game is full of this type of humor. If you are a Simpson fan, you will like this stuff, as long as you take the time to discover it...
The graphics are OK and true to the style of the TV series. In fact, it sometimes seems that the game looks better than the series. But of course, comic-style graphics do not really push the xbox. So I can't quite share the enthusiasm of one of my fellow reviewers.
The gameplay is pretty good for the most parts, although it does get repetitive. Overall, envision a simplified version of the Grand Theft Auto gameplay (although without shooting... violence is still there, but comic style). Unfortunately, some of the missions are hit and miss and penalize small mistakes way too much. Often, a little mistake can make you start over your mission, and often, that mistake may be caused by another car that just happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. I would have appreciated the level design to allow to make up for those mistakes in some way, rather than making the player start over. Also, a lot of levels can not really be finished at the first attempt, because they require that the player knows where to turn (among other things). This means that often, player skill is less important than the player's memory. It also means that one fails to complete levels without really being at fault.
This may sound like I do not like the game. I DO like the game. But it is a shame that small gameplay issues keep this game from being truly great..

Being both a diehard Simpsons fan and an avid gamer, I am very confident in saying that this game finally breaks the mold of bad, generic Simpsons video games. The game is extremely fun. You run around as various characters in a handful of well-rendered 3D environments straight from the show. Like Simpsons Road Rage, the little remarks from the characters are hysterical. However, getting out and running around makes this game much more exciting than Road Rage. It is mission based, with plenty of minigames and bonus stuff everywhere to keep us Simpsons fanatics happy. In fact, my favorite feature in the game is the little things here and there that only diehard fans would recognize. Like Frostillicus' frozen body as an attraction at the Kwik-E-Mart, or the tiki god that Homer ran the oven gas to that sits in the backyard of the Simpsons home. As well as Bart's treehouse, and the Flanders' "Shelterini" in their backyard.
I have been an extreme Simpsons fanatic for quite some time. I have all of the toys, I have seen every episode at least three times over, and I have played all of the games. I think it is safe to say this is definitely the best Simpsons game yet. Yes, the old 90s arcade game ruled, but this 3D game is on a different level. I would compare it a little to Grand Theft Auto III, without the violence, and with much better graphics. However I think it's more like the Super Mario World launch game that came out when Gamecube hit the market. It's very similiar, with the 3D worlds, free roaming capabilities, missions you get by talking to people, and of course collecting coins.
A+!
