Lets start with the game modes:

Road Rage
Sunday Drive
Mission Mode
Head To Head

Road rage is the main attraction in this simpsons gaming circus. Drive around a number of springfeild locations picking up characters from the show. Get them to their destination ASAP and then get paid. Keep repeating this until the timer reaches 0. each time you pick up or drop of a customer you will gain more time.

Sunday Drive is Road rage minus the mad race against the clock. Everything is the same except you go at your own pase, no pressure. This is perfect if you want some practice at the game or just want to go sight seeing.

Mission mode gives you 10 tasks to complete. Each with a different character and objective. You may have to knock things down or get someone somewhere. I will go into these missions in more detail later.

Head to head is exactly what it says. You take to the springfeild streets again but this time with some competition. A second player can insert a controller and feel the rage of the road too. The aim here is to pick up a customer and get it to their location, original! but if your oponent hits into you, they steal the passenger. Its the first person to deliver the needed amount of passengers that wins. There are no time limits, your not racing the clock anymore, now your up against another human.

Playing tips time:

More time:
If you knock down a phone box with a Mr Burns head picture on it, you will gain an extra 2 seconds on the clock. The downtown level is full of these phone boxes, so keep your eyes open. They are usualy found outside key locations. Eg. the Simpsons house and Springfield Elementary. To knock them down just drive into them.

Avoid Traffic:
If when you pick up a character you get the message 'AVOID TRAFFIC FOR BOUNUS' just drive carefully to your passengers destination. But avoid contact with other cars on the road. especially Mr Burns and his buses as they will aim for you. a small counter will appear in the top right corner, saying a number 3. Each time you hit a car, the number will increase. If you hit 3 cars, the bonus is over and you failed. Now every thing is back to normal, so speed on as usual. If you do reach the destination without hitting 3 cars (Well Done) you are awarded with $250 plus 3 extra seconds.

People who may ask you to avoid traffic are:

Ned Flanders
Reverand Lovejoy
Ralph Wiggun
Grampa Simpson
Hans Moleman

Destroy items:
If when you pick up a character you get the message 'DESTROY ITEMS FOR BOUNUS' just drive dangerously to your passengers destination. Hit all the tree's, signs, lamp posts etc. Here will be a number in the top right corner saying how many things to hit. This will depend on the length of your journey. It can range from 3 to 18. Once you get to your target amount of items, get to the destination bfore the timer runs out. If you make it you are warded with $1000 plus 5 extra seconds.

Hidden Car:
Play through mission mode to get money to unlock a new secret Homer Simpson. He will be driving the Homer car, which he designed in the episode he met his brother in. It is a green car, with a bubble for Homer to sit in. The horn plays La Cooca Racha.

Put me back tip:
If you become lost or stuck, just press select and you will be placed back on the road.

Skip through the missions:
In mission mode, if you are stuck on a mission. Play until the timer runs out, then restart. Do this 5 times. Then the sixth time you have the option to restart, it will also say skip this mission. Select this to go to the next mission. It will count that you have completed the mission, even though you didnt. This works on every mission, except the last. When you finish all 10 missions you are given a new car for Homer.

Review

Whats that I hear you say,D'OH not another simpsons game! Well yes it is, the very poor simpsons wrestling didnt put an end to the simpsons gaming franchise, it just gave it more direction. The simpsons was a very original idea that became a hit TV show and even a world record holder. But the games based on the show, were never quite as original. We had spikey haired bart running round a platformer as if he was sonic. And more reccently the whole cast took to the ring in the style of the rock and his WWF friends. So what could their new game possibly be, a sims knock off, a mario kart clone, well nope its neither of them. Instead they have emulated the very popular, crazy taxi.

Just like in Crazy taxi, you take to the streets in one of a selection of cars. Then pick up passengers and take them to their destination. Do this in the time limit to make as much money as possible. Each level is based on the simpsons home town of Springfeild. Theres the downtown area which features places like Mr Burns casino and theres evergreen terrace which has the Kwick-E-Mart. The drivers range from Homer simpson to Krusty the clown and from Ned Flanders to snake. Each character is fully voiced by the people who do them in the show, they say some new things but also phrases we know and love. The characters drive either a car they have been seen with in the show (like bart in his soap box racer) or a car based on the personality (lisa in her eletric car).

Now the graphics may not be perfect, but they really do look like a 3D cartoon. I can safely say, the visuals are a big improvement since simpsons wrestling on the PSone. one thing that makes Road rage better than crazy taxi, is the secrets that need to be unlocked. There are 13 characters and 6 levels to be unlocked. You will be told an amount of money which you need to aquire. To get this money you play through road rage mode making as much money as you can. after each go, the computer will add up your money and either say how much more you need, or that you have enough. If you have enough you choose either a new character or level. If you go for a level, you will get the next on the list, if you get a character you select who you want.

There are a few modes of play. There is of course road rage, then mission mode which gives you 10 missions to complete for a special bonus. There is also sunday drive which is road rage minus the money and time limit, then theres 2 player. 2 player is a bit like we have seen in Driver 2, collect the passenger, take them to their destination, without your oponent stealing them from you. To steal someones passenger, you just simply hit into them.

The gameplay is very fast, but at times can be a bit jurkey. This however just adds to the true road rage feel. You shoot over a hill, bounce of the roof of a bus and land in a tree..D'oh! The soundtrack isnt as good as crazy taxi, but still sounds ok. One of the songs even sounds a bit like one of Rickey Martins songs, thankfully without the lyrics. But like I said the characters voices are brilliant, the best in a game and cant be beat.

If Crazy Taxi is king of the PS2 road, then Road rage is the jester. Its here to give you a good time, and make you laugh. Which is a quality that has been lost in gam,ing over recent years. This is a great game which will be enjoyed by hardcore fans and non-simpsons lovers a like. Finally we have a simpsons game that we dont have to hide when our mates come round. The simpsons have beaten the curse, now they are producing great games, I hope this is to be the first of many to come.
_______________________________________________________________________

Now lets start with the game modes:

Road Rage
Sunday Drive
Mission Mode
Head To Head

Road rage is the main attraction in this simpsons gaming circus. Drive around a number of springfeild locations picking up characters from the show.
