Very Good

Fun for One! Whoo Hoo! for Two!

One of the best things about this game is that its one of the few games that you can sit with a friend on the couch with and play. The split screen function was easy to adapt to and it was great to laugh along with my room mate as we discovered each new pun, parody or joke.

As for the game, it was enjoyable. It was not easy but it was not hard either. A challenge without being too frustrating. I will admit I had to look up a few walkthroughs online when I got stuck but all in all the fun of the game made up for it.

It was a good time of just sitting around with a friend and wasting time as we tried to catch all the in-jokes, parodies and plain craziness that is what has kept the tv show alive after all these years.

What I liked:
-Two simultaneous players w/out need for Internet
-Graphics very accurate to the t.v. show
-Parodies were actually hillarious, clever, nostalgic and current
-Gameplay was fun, found myself playing for several hours at a time.
-Uniqueness of characters' abilities
-Original voiceovers by original cast
-Original animation
-Better for Gen-Xers (those old enough to have owned an NES while a child, you'll see why)
-Long
-Puzzles were somewhat challenging
-Puts you in a good mood

What I didn't care for:
-Some puzzles were too obvious
-Not enough Groundskeeper Willy

Good

Great story, average game

My title basically sums up this game. The story and jokes are great, much better than recent Simpson episodes. This is a great rental. It is short and funny and even with doing all collectables you wouldn't play it for more than a month. The game itself is average. The graphics are PS2 at best and the controls and camera work are pretty poor and can be somewhat frustrating.
