Talk about a game that is perfect in just about every day! The Simpsons Hit and Run gives you puzzle games, racing, quests, and an amazingly fun plot!
You get to play as a variety of characters - Bart, Homer, Lisa, Marge and even Apu. You get to earn various outfits for each person. There are the main quests, tons of sub-quests, and hidden secrets everywhere. The graphics are superb, and the sounds are perfect. The real writers from the show wrote the plots, the real actors supplied the voices. You feel like you're right in the middle of a multi-hour episode series and you'll find yourself laughing out loud at the lines!
Yes, you can 'run over' people, but it just knocks them off the road where they wave their fist at you. You're also penalized for doing that, so it's in your best interest to stay on the road and achieve the objectives set out for you. The whole plot ties in together in a great way, and you can always go back to the levels and replay them to aim for 100%.
Where Grand Theft Auto is definitely NOT child friendly, Simpsons Hit and Run is the perfect family game where everybody can play together and have great fun doing that.
Highly recommended! This is definitely a game we eagerly played through from start to finish, then kept playing to track down all those secrets. Fun for all who enjoy Simpson's style humor.
