Best Simpsons Game to date.

First off , this is crazy taxi , but in springfield , with the simpsons cast.
The main game to play Is "road rage" where u pickup and drop off passengers from the simpson world to gain points and extra time.
the main thing that kept me hooked in this game for months was the reward system
to unlock new drivers and locations, you had to continue to make money , and then at each point where you had enough you have the chance to buy a new driver or location , and each time u buy something, the number of points needed to reach the next amount to open a new prize is greater in number. so it has hours and hours of lifespan if your a simpsons nut who wants to get every joke from the conversations between driver and passenger.
other modes include a free roaming mode in the locations you have unlocked and a misson based with a almost "Hit and RUn" feel to it.
I have never been a fan of simpsons in 3d games , becuase it looks realy off.something about it is just wrong.
but in Road rage they are more tolerable then in Simpsons wrestling. there is alot of cel-shading witch helps. the locations can be a bit too blocky but still dont bother too much.
The sound is the best part , with Music Composed by the shows composer , so everything feels right. the Conversations are the best part of the game , witch me and my friends never got sick of.
the car and traffics sounds are forgetable and there are alot of cartoony "boings" crashing .
the gameplay isnt groundbreaking , its the crazy taxi engine basicly , but it still works well in Springfield.
Controls are responsive and easy to pick up and play.
after awhile you start noticing your picking up the same characters to take them to the same place , but if your a simpson fan , the different conversations will help it from getting boring.
Overall Simpsons Road Rage is the ultimate simpsons game of this generation. with a simple gameplay and great dialogue witch will keep Fans of the TV show Happy
