How often have you watched the best show on T.V (The Simpsons for the few dim-witted), and wondered to yourself "I wonder what it's like to be a Simpson and live in Springfield."?
Well, okay..you may never have even dreamed about going there due to Burns' Springfield Nuclear Power Plant and having to go to Springfield Elementary where you'll receive a severe wedgie from Dolph, Kearney and Jimbo. But let's presume you really want to see what life is like being a Simpson. Thanks to Mr Matt Groening and the entire team of the show along with computer know-alls and Virgin Interactive you can now experience Springfield life. You'll be able to be as nosy as you want while rummaging through the Simpsons' house and also the Flandereseses' house (which is really funny, check out their record collection!). You can make a Flamin' Moe (or should that be a Flamin' Homer!?) at the welcoming Moe's Tavern. You can check out the Krustylo Studios and watch numerous Itchy & Scratchy shows. Ever wanted to play those great games that Bart plays at Noiseland Arcade? Well now you can play such gems as "Larry the Looter". There's also tons of hidden games including Apoom in the Kwik-E-Mart! You can also see what complaints Abe "Grampa" Simpson is typing up on his typewriter when you mosey on down to Springfield Retiremaent Castle.
Anyhoo, I shall not give much more away.
By now you're probably thinking "Besides from being able to be as nosey as hell, is there an aim to the game". Well yes, the thing is, while you're searching through the town and the places that you are allowed to go into, you have to try and find 72 residents of spingfield cards. So you truly have to search high and low in order to find these.
Along with great Groening-esque animation and the dulcet tones of the great actors and actresses behind each character (and guest star Phil Hartman as Troy McClure), this is one game that any Simpson fan should not be without.
Go out and buy it and place it proudly between your copies of "Simpsons Cartoon Studio" and "Simpsons Screen Saver" and your life will be far better (aside from eye-strains and severe headaches from spending hours and hours playing the game!).
