Simpsons reruns are always gold, because you can never take in all the obscurities and genius in one viewing. Though a little short on gameplay depth, Road Rage is worth repeated play because of the show-lifted locations and both original and reused character quotes. The leprechaun may tell you to burn things, but shut him up and listen to me: Simpsons Road Rage is most definitely okalee dokalee, neighborino.

A game can be great because of gameplay. A game can be great because of graphics, especially in this day and age of newfangled gaming technology. A game can be great because the music is so beautiful or catchy that it lingers in your immediate thoughts the whole day long. But when a game like this has so much to go off of, including thirteen seasons of material and several other pieces of paraphernalia, you find yourself thinking it's great because of its subtleties, and this is the greatest greatness of all.
Für echte Simpsons-Fans ist Die Simpsons Road Rage sicher ein Spaßgarant, zumal es die Möglichkeit bietet, neben Charakteren und Fahrzeugen noch weitere zehn Level freizuspielen. Die haben dann allerdings mit dem eigentlichen Spielprinzip nur noch wenig zu tun. Wenn Krusty beispielsweise vor hysterischen Fans fliehen muss, ist das sicherlich kein spielerischer Geniestreich, bietet aber eine annehmbare Abwechslung zum restlichen Gameplay.

Am Ende bleibt nur ein nettes Fanprodukt. das an vielen technischen Krankheiten leidet und in allen Belangen seiner groĂźen Vorlage unterlegen ist.

Pour terminer, ce jeu n'est pas un jeu qui va révolutionner le genre, et c'est un jeu assez banal. Mais je crois que les fans des Simpson passeront tout de même un bon moment car pratiquement tous les personnages de la série sont là, et les voix sont les mêmes que celles utilisées dans la série américaine. Le jeu a vraiment le look Simpson est c'est un point fort. Plusieurs éléments de la série seront reconnus que par les vrais fans car plusieurs trucs comme le camion M. Plow, ou le monstre mécanique qui dévore les autos, ne sont pas connus de tout le monde, mis à part ceux qui ont bien connu la série. Bref, je vous conseille une location pour ce jeu. Et si vous êtes un fan des Simpson, vous allez passer un bon moment avec! Le jeu est bien, mais on s'en lasse assez rapidement, et il n'offre pas beaucoup plus que de faire du taxi!

Simpsons Road Rage is a virtual tour of Springfield. Filled to the brim with sound bytes, sly references (like the cheap voice over that replaces Krusty's assessment of your skills), and just about every single Simpsons location possible. If anything, you might want it to pick up a copy of Road Rage for camp value, to fulfill your collection, or to fire up for short bursts of at multiplayer parties. Your friends will love it! Provided they don't play too long.
GameSpot (Jan 08, 2002)
If you can see past these problems, then The Simpsons Road Rage might present you with a little bit of replay value. You can compete head-to-head against one other player in a split-screen mode, and you can drive as any character n any location that you've unlocked in a mode without a clock. There are even 10 missions in which you're given various tasks to complete within a short amount of time, such as driving Krusty away from a mob of fans and getting Homer to work without Mr. Burns noticing. And of course, there's something to be said about simply driving around a 3D recreation of Springfield. In the end, though, The Simpsons Road Rage's control problems prevent this from being recommendable to all but the most die-hard of The Simpsons fans. And while it's better than the poor GameCube port of the original Crazy Taxi, ultimately, the only saving grace Road Rage has is that it's a Simpsons game.

The Simpsons Road Rage is fun for short stretches of time, but it’s a definite rent-first title. While it’s the best Simpsons game I’ve ever played, that doesn’t mean it deserves a rating over "decent." To put Road Rage to the desert island test, I will say that if I was stuck on a desert island with only The Simpsons Road Rage to play, I wouldn’t be compelled to make a desperate swim for it (as would be the case with most other Simpsons games). But it wouldn’t take me very long to build a raft.

The game starts off with a cutscene that presents you with Burns’ scheme, when that’s finished you are presented with easy to navigate menus. The menus aren’t too impressive but they are easy enough for to just power on your GameCube and just play. The character selection menu is pretty cool though, when you highlight a character they pull up in their vehicle and yell out one of their catch frases.
IGN (Jan 14, 2002)
Sega's Crazy Taxi was a runaway hit when it premiered on the Dreamcast so many years ago, and countless ports since have continued to prove successful. So it comes as no surprise that several Crazy Taxi clones have sprouted up from the gardens of competing publishers. One such game is The Simpsons Road Rage from Electronic Arts. The Radical Entertainment developed racer pits players as the hilarious characters from the animated television series and turns them loose in the city of Springfield to carry fares to different locations.

Les Simpsons continuent sur leur lancée de jeux moyens avec ce Road Rage sans aucune originalité et à la réalisation maladroite. Seuls les plus grands fans de la série trouveront un quelconque intérêt à ce titre, les autres préfèreront sûrement le troisième volet de Crazy Taxi...
NGC Magazine (Jun, 2002)
Rent it, enjoy the thimbleful of entertainment on offer, unlock a few characters and areas, and then take it back, safe in the knowledge that you've sampled absolutely everything the game has to offer, and saved yourself the best part of 40 quid.
NGC Magazine (Mar, 2002)
If the original Crazy Taxi lacked longevity, it's hard to see how a lesser imitator can be anything other than a one-night-wonder on rental. It will take awhile longer to unlock every character, and since you can't earn much more than a few thousand each time, you won't be liberating Springfield's buses for a t least a few days. But it's highly unlikely you'll spend that much time with it, because once you've been on one taxi run, you seen the only type of gameplay Road Rage is going to serve up for the next one thousand.
Nintendo Life (Jan 06, 2006)
Give this game a rent or buy it for cheap at a car bootie, I wouldn't suggest forking much more than £10 for this game. Simpson’s fanatics will enjoy the scenes but if you want a good Simpson’s game just get Hit n Run.
