I reached saturation point with the Simpsons a long time ago and haven't watched it for years but thankfully the game feels more reminiscent of the classic days of yore than more recent, surreal or far too specifically topical, episodes. The dialogue is genuinely funny but unfortunately the initially witty lines get repeated ad nauseam and quickly become more tedious than entertaining. The graphics are spot on and the game looks just like the show.
Gameplay wise, it is really nothing special (and I actually enjoyed the Megadrive Simpsons game a lot more!) and it's all over in far too short a time. It's in this respect that it starts to feel like a typical tie-in game which is a real shame because the writing and graphics are of such high quality.
The Simpsons Game is a strange mix of great writing and unispiring gameplay that is unlikely to keep you entertained for long but at this price it's certainly worth giving it a go.
