The Simpsons: Hit & Run Platinum (PS2) ... Simpsons games have been nothing if not consistent: they've all been completely rubbish. However, The Simpsons: Hit & Run thankfully breaks this 100 per cent record, and although it's hardly a classic in its own right it's just the thing for fans who want to worship their favourite characters through the medium of the joypad. Like many of the more recent Simpsons games Hit & Run is primarily a racing game--a racing game that's very obviously using Grand Theft Auto as its primary inspiration. There's less swearing and gore but just as much running people over and driving lots of different vehicles. You can't steal them off the street, admittedly, and the missions are presented in a much more linear fashion, but otherwise this is GTA: Springfield through and through. Somewhat embarrassingly for GTA, the on-the-foot sections are actually handled rather better than Rockstar's game, with a fairly non-rubbish camera and a decent control system that actually makes the occasional platform sections rather fun. Most of the game is about driving, though, whether it be racing Principle Skinner to school in order to give Lisa her homework or helping Bart buy some illegal fireworks from around town. It's only when controlling underage characters such as Bart that the game's concept really starts to seem peculiar (he only drives unmotorised vehicles) but otherwise the addition of all the proper voice actors from the TV show make this the first Simpsons game ever that is in any way worthy of a purchase.

We got my 10-year-old son this game for Christmas last year and he loved it. I never really took any notice of what the game was like as he was old enough to figure out what to do and did not need my help. With a one year old to look after too I was happy to leave him to it. Now last week my 4 and a half year old son asked if he could try and play it so I had no choice but help out as he can't even turn the playstation in himself. (Too high). Anyway, we stuck it on and I knew right away it would be my kind of game. I love this sort of game as you have time to see what you are doing. Other racing games like GT for instance, are good but so fast paced all I do ... Read the complete review
