The Simpsons: Hit & Run
Xingpuseng Yijia: Da Dai Pao - Chinese title
Os Simpsons: Hit & Run - Brazilian title
Les Simpsons: Hit & Run - French title
The player takes on the role of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa or Apu and try to uncover a mystery surrounding mechanical bees that are taking over Springfield, mysterious vans, and cola that can control the minds of those who drink it.
Like GTA, the game follows a linear-based path through fifty plus missions. The player will have to chase cars and find out where they're headed, grab all the spilling cola cans before people can drink them, and chasing down villains before they get away.
Throughout the course of the game, the player can unlock tons of rewards by completing missions in a set amount of time or performing outstanding stunts.
All voiceovers are performed by those who act in the show, including Dan Castellaneta (Homer), Julie Kavner (Marge) and Yeardley Smith (Lisa).
The game supports multiplayer action for up to four players.

The problems are all minor quibbles. The bottom line is this is far and away the best Simpsons video game currently available, not that there's a lot of competition. It manages to be true to the show and be a mostly fun game and give a decent ten-plus-hour play time. I highly recommend it.
The Simpsons return to form .... finally by Kartanym (10795)
It isn't perfect, but compared to the everything else that has come before it, Hit & Run is a much better game to build upon for the future of the Simpsons franchise. Fans will love the humor and references to previous shows, and the extras will keep you going for a little longer. I'm looking forward to see what Vivendi can do next.
Not quite the worst... game... ever. by Entorphane (369)
Only if you are a Simpson's fanatic would this game ever be worth a purchase. Even then, I would have to recommend a rental first. I am a huge Simpson's fan and only my love for the show enabled me to trudge though the seven boring, repetitive levels. The game is worth checking out for the humor factor, but it's just too bad that there is nothing funny about the lame-ass gameplay.
