I am a huge Simpsons fan and I was highly disapointed by this game. The very first thing I noticed were the awful graphics. Even the Simpsons arcade game from the late 80's had better graphics than this. The next bad thing about this game was the camera angles, it was impossible to do anything because the camera was constantly spinning. Even the classic Simpson one liners was not enough to save this game.
The first thing I noticed was how bad the controls, movement and camera angles are. And that pretty much ended the fun with this game right there before it even began. And when I say bad, I mean worse than horrible - there isn't even a word to describe it. The camera seems to have a life of its own and shifts angles randomly while you're moving. So you constantly miss your targets when jumping and fall off ledges. Trying to simply walk in a straight line is IMPOSSIBLE. (I guess that's what it feels like to fail a field sobriety test after a night of drinking...) This constant camera shaking, shifting, spinning, wobbling was so bad, I came out feeling nauseous, sort of like seasick-nauseous, after the first time playing this game. I ended up playing a few more times trying to gain control of the controls and hoping for the game to redeem itself in some way. But after a while it became too frustrating to devote 95% of my attention to battling the camera movement. This could have been a really nice game, but the controls destroy it completely.

The Simspons Game for the Wii is mediocer. The game does look pretty good and some gameplay elements feel good with the wii remote, but overall the wii features feel tacked on and once you beat the game, there is absolutly no reason to play it again. I would rent it, but definetly not a buy.
