Before I commence trashing this game, let me say I'm a HUGE fan of the Simpsons. I consider it far and away one of the best shows on TV (along with The Sopranos). Now to the game, a friend of mine and I rented it the first day it came out and had very high hopes. We were sorely disappointed. While it's cool for about the first ten minutes that you can play as many Simpsons characters, each with their own special moves, the gameplay is just not there. Once the initial gimmick of playing a simpsons-based fighting game wears off, you'll realize there is a lot lacking. For starters, the graphics are not nearly as good as they could have been, there are WAY too few options, not nearly enough playable characters (considering the number of characters on the show), and even the characters that are playable are unbalanced and have too few moves. Overall, I'm sorry to say this game seems to be thrown together without much time spent on making it fun.
