The Simpsons: Hit & Run (PS2)
Advantages: its has lots of levels and places all just like the TV show.
Disadvantages: Its quite easy to complete once you get the hang of it.
The Simpson Hit and Run is by far the best Simpson game
The game has over 50 driving and on-foot missions that are done in 7 huge levels spread out over the familiar Springfield landmarks from the Television show. There are mission like collecting possessions for people, racing etc. For me missions took between 5 and 15 minutes to complete and im a hardcore gamer. Each of the 7 levels has one of the Simpsons family as the player each level matches their personality and I think Bart is the most funniest because he has alot of jokes and mischievousness missions. I think Lisa's level can be a bit frustrating because she is such a goody goody just like the show she bores me because her missions are boring and very easy.
You are able to explore Springfield on foot as Homer, Bart, Apu, Marge, and Lisa and enter into interiors of locations like the Kwik-e-mart, the Power Plant, and even the Simpsons home. I think they have done a good job of getting the same feel as the Television program. The game is voiced by the Simpsons cast which makes it all that more authentic as a game for the show.
You are able to drive as drive as 17 different characters including Cletus, Comic Book Guy, and Principal Skinner. The fun thing about driving you can drive at you own pace and have as much fun by driving on grass, pavements, ramps etc. If you cause too much havoc the police will arrest you. This is fun but can be bad when your in the middle of a race mission as it slows you down.
There are many vehicles from the show that can be brought with coins that you collect from damaging things which makes is good for Simpsons fans as well as regular gamers.
In-game animated gags and hidden jokes throughout the environments give the genuine feel of being in an episode of The Simpsons. This element for me maximises the fact that is The Simpsons I love the Simpsons and the gags are much like the show Barts level is where you find the funny ones.
Multiplayer mode for up-to 4 players in unlockable driving challenges. You will need more than one controller to play this mode.
One thing that makes it good for everybody is it has many game elements that I love and other people love such as collecting items, buying items, and completing missions, this makes the game longer to complete so its takes longer to get bored of.
I think this game is really fun it also tells a story throughout which makes it like a little Simpsons movie where your in control of what's happening. Your the one saving the day is something that I really like about this game.
People that love Adventure games with lots of mission will enjoy this game as much as I do. You can get this game for next to nothing on Amazon or eBay.
Summary: fun little game for the kids especially simpsons lovers
