Images of The Simpsons Game

EA still, with The Simpsons Game and its three new screenshots. Visually, it seems to work well, looks almost like the movie. Almost.

does look kind of like the movie with the environment but not with the characters. but i dunno, this game seems kind of bad.

The game seems funnier than the movie, but I guess we'll see if it's any fun to play...

wow, this looks bad, you'd think a game that looks this....basic! would have ultra crisp and clean lines, but no, the characters look fuzzy as all hell and the BG's have jaggy lines all over the place. look at pic 3, its horrible.

for a kids game its ok i guess. but its seems far too bland and shallow. one for die hard fans of the show i guess...and who really falls into that catagory now the show has gone down hill and the likes of family guy are out there.

homers outline is fuzzy, maybe i just expected it to look far better then it does considering it really isnt pushing many poly's or throwing too many high res textures around.

umm, compare homer to the above 3 screenshots, they are horribly fuzzy, but the ones on the jostiq gallery arent, only slightly jagged, but thats to be expected as its a screenie

the BG's are jaggy...homer, as i said, looks fuzzy, not as fuzzy as the gamersyde images, but still fuzzy...the game just doesnt look as sharp as it should imo.

it will look sharper running thanks to 4xFSAA

would make an awesome £29.99 game (ala flatout:UC) but for £49.99 rrp, umm, no thanks

KORNdog watch the gameplay vids, it looks 10x better in motion.

Simpson's Hit & Run was so much fun, cant wait for this game, looks brilliant!

Again, you can't always tell by looking at static screens how jaggie the game will be, like the others said watch the video.

Wow... look at the 3rd image, the environments look like they were done on the lowest form of 3D modeling XD

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
