Storyline

Something weird is happening in the town of Springfield and as usual, the Simpsons are right in the middle of it. Tiny cameras disguised as wasps are flying about. Mysterious black vans seem to be spying on the citizens. A new soda appears to be making people crazy. And while all this is going on, Bart Simpson disappears, apparently by a UFO. It's up to Homer and his family to solve the mystery. Written by BKelly9505

One of the best
9 February 2004 | by dimitriskatsSee all my reviews

OK, ok, the bonus game is not worth the effort of collecting cards. My angle is this: Try 1600 x 1200. Now, glorious animation oozes out of your monitor. I give it a solid 9. Just remember, it's only a game. TIP: Don't use mouse look, use arrow keys and space for handbrake. Git aout of the vay!!
