The Simpsons Game is here! Is hanging with Homer and family a blast or a bummer? Get the lowdown on Springfield with our Simpsons game review!

Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge and even Maggie are coming to life in EA's new The Simpsons Game for PS2, PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii! It's an action-packed adventure game that lets you play as members of the [KWLINK8878 ]Simpsons[/KWLINK] family in a huge quest that's full of laughs. Is this game as delicious as donuts? Find out with Gary's Simpsons Game Review!

The Simpsons Game - Welcome to Springfield

The entire Simpsons family is yours to control in this game. You and a friend can tackle each level as two of the famous cartoon characters, each with crazy video game powers to help you clobber mobs, fight off aliens and even battle Matt Groenig - the creator of the Simpsons TV show himself! Each level is packed with jokes, collectibles, Simpsons characters, and wacky parodies of famous video games - from DDR to GTA. There's also a secret level at the very end and, holy moses, it's a doozy!

The Simpsons Game - Woo Hoo!

The Simpsons rock this game - the writers of the show helped put this game together and crammed it so full of jokes, goofy characters and fun that you'll have to take breaks so you don't pee yourself from laughing too much. Plus, if you're a hardcore gamer you'll love the jokes about the game business, parodies of video games and more!

The Simpsons Game - D'oh!

Playing The Simpsons Game with a friend isn't so hot - the splitscreen action just doesn't cut it. The only other bummer is that most of the fun from this game is the Simpsons. The action is decent, but without Bart, Homer and the rest of Springfield to back it up, you'd be snoring by level 3.

The Simpsons Game - Video Game Perfection?

The Simpsons Game is a solid game with a double-scoop of ice creamy Simpsons humor that'll keep you coming back for more! It's missing a certain Sha-Zam! that would make it truly awesome, but it's a fun game that's great for the whole family and is definitely worth checking out.
