This is going to be short.

I RARELY play video games, but this one had a base conceptual appeal to me. I insisted on getting it when we ordered our Xbox.

I've hardly managed to get through much of it. As usual I'm flummoxed by the seemingly easiest of obstacles to overcome (How long did it take me to jump the donuts to the cake?? Don't ask).

Overall, it's a highly entertaining game and not too terribly frustrating for a cerebral but non-gaming person such as myself.

If you're looking for fun, I'd have to recommend this one.

Overall, the game was good. It had it's faults as well however.     Graphics: The games graphics are intended to place 2 dimensional characters in a 3D world similar to many recent comic book games. It does this very well at times. During cutscenes, however, the artistry is horrible. Occasionally, the cartoon cutscenes are nice enough to come strait from the simpson's movie. Other times, they are not even to par with the original simpsons. The characters occasionally look misshaped …
