    The Best Simpsons Video Game Idea Ever!

    Yes, I will admit, the game is getting rather dated now (8 years old now) but truly, it's an absolute classic. Lately the Simpsons video game development has been a line of sheer mediocrity. I think that I speak for ev... Read Full Review

    Not much to do.

    It's a game that only The Simpsons fans can enjoy.

    Actually though its more of a tour of Springfield rather than a game since they give you the ability to explore each and every well known location freely. To make the game a little more fun they even included mini games ... Read Full Review
