One of my favorite games of all time. I wish they'd made a sequel (similar to this, with the 3D graphics)

I was just thinking about this yesterday. Getting it in christmas 2003 and playing it for hours

Defintely the best Simpsons game to date, and would love for there to be a sequel.

My favourite game ever, it was SO amazing. I liked GTA but this was like a lighter, more fun version and I loved that about it.

Thought I'd create an online petition just in case (just to bring it to people's attention): http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/simpsons

I love this game too, played through it and 100%'ed it recently. My favourite level is definitely Level 3 with Lisa, her theme music is easily the best of all the characters. Driving around with that music and seeing the sunset sky...bliss.

While I'm talking about Lisa, the Malibu Stacy Car is a brilliant vehicle considering you get it in Level 3, I still remember beating a street race in Level 5 and in Level 6 using it. It also helps that Lisa's an enjoyable character in this game.

Snap. I was just talking to my girlfriend about this the other day. Such an awesome game. I'd love a sequel.

Just looked in the cupboard. I still have it. Thing is, i tried San Andreas about 3 months ago and it was a bad move. Rose tinted glasses and all that.

See if you can get the word out about this petition, and get more people to sign it: http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/simpsons

I particularly liked the variety of levels and the different places where you could go.

I had the game on PS2 4 years ago, loved playing it and then one day it stopped working.

I wanted to start this recently but my Dualshock 2 are broken and my Dualshock (PS1) only works on certain games

I genuinly think its one of the unsung classics of the last generation

I know what you mean, that happened to me with the original Spyro trilogy. Loved the games as a kid, but playing Spyro 1 again recently, it didn't hold my attention quite like it used to, perhaps because it was overly familiar and not that challenging.

However the music is still brilliant and I'm happy to have it on my iPod.

Loved it, used to play it a lot on Gamecube. Preferred it over The Simpsons Game

I loved this game. I really liked The Simpson Road Rage too, but I don't think that has as much of a positive following really?

I still have them both.

Yeah Simpsons Road Rage got pretty much panned in the reviews at the time.

Hit and Run was amazing though, unsung classic!

Sells for around 12 quid on eBay so worth picking up.

The eBay sellers are saying that it may not work on 360, does anyone play this game on a 360 with success?

Me too. Hit and Run is definitely the better game imo, but I bought Road Rage again recently (having had it before and sold it). It's fun to play through the main game, though there's not much incentive to play after $1,000,000. Nonetheless I wanted to get it again just because of the character dialogue. Having said that though, the Sunday Drive music is ace!

Yep, completed it 100% and unlocked the bonus movie at the Aztec Theater in Level 3. Took a while to find all the wasps and gags though.
