Just figured some people here may be interested.

Ish 137, "PS4 Wins" on the cover.

Nice. There's some more-than-decent Simpsons games out there - Hit & Run was the best game of it's type until Lego City Undercover, The Arcade Game is an underrated gem and Road Rage is a guilty pleasure of mine (a real 'crap but amazing' kind of game). This'll warrant a look.

Cheers beemoh.

Hit and Run was brilliant. The best Simpsons game out there - laden with references and plenty of shit to do. I remember trying to do the last mission for hours and eventually I persevered, great stuff. Also, Homer saying "I am so smart, I am so smart, S-M-R-T DOH I mean S-M-A-R-T" after you crash into something is ingrained in my brain. Definitely should go back and replay that at some point.

Road Rage, glad you brought that up Phillips, I've got a soft spot for that. As close to Crazy Taxi as they come without infringing, but with a Simpsons flavour on it.

Yeah Hit and Run was a great, I don't know why they've never made a sequel for it.

I remember hearing that SEGA disagreed, and found Road Rage to be so similar to Crazy Taxi that they did end up suing TS:RR's developer and publisher for patent infringement. Cheeky!

I remember playing a lot of Bart vs The Space Mutants as a kid. And Krusty's Super Fun House during the SNES era. And not many others. Bart's Nightmare was too tough for me Laughing

I did watch my brothers finish the Simpsons Arcade aeons ago on holiday once Smile

Konami's Simpsons arcade game has recently been taken down from the download services, but I think that was the best. It nailed the humour and characters pretty well, considering it was a Japanese developed game and the show was only on its first or second season at the time.

I never saw this! That's cheeky indeed, and a shame, because as much of a clone as it was, I enjoyed it a lot.

The Simpsons Arcade will always be the most fondly remembered for me. I enjoyed what I played of Road Rage but I reached one mission that I simply couldn't beat at the time, and I gave up.

The were crap, but I also have fond memories of Bart vs. The Space Mutants and Bart vs. The World. I fondly remember playing Krusty's Super Fun House in my local branch of Boots as a bairn, too.

Anyone remember Simpsons Wrestling? Pile of crap.

I've got a fair number of Simpsons games in my collection, but Wrestling is the worst. I was gutted with the way The Simpsons Wrestling turned out. Just rubbish.

I actually started another game on Hit & Run on GameCube a couple of weeks back. Still pretty good! A sequel would be such a can't-miss commercial success that I haven't a clue why the developers didn't start work on one immediately after finishing the first one.

I have quite fond memories of Simpsons Wrestling, though I also thought I played it on the N64 so my memory is clearly a bit dodgy.
