Hit & Run is the best. We totally need a remake... or even a back compat release.

Orchard628d ago

I'd be down for either :)

RedDevils627d ago

I like the old Simpsons cast more.

Number1TailzFan628d ago

No Virtual Springfield? Though tbf it was more of an experience than a game, even though it did have some little gameplay in some parts. Fun for fans though.

Hit & Run was great, my only complaint would be that Homer didn't have enough missions, the game could've been a bit longer and bigger.

This! Virtual Springfield is hands down the best Simpsons game. Such love and a modern take on that (in VR) would really bring the 35 years of Simpson-mania together in one massive package. I would love this!

Homer didn't have enough missions? What do you mean? Homer and Bart were the only 2 characters that got 2 levels each.

I myself liked the DS version of the Simpsons game much more than the one on main consoles, it was a proper 2D platformer game, I recommend.

Hit & Run is in dire need of a sequel. They could do so much more with the upgraded tech.

-Hermit-628d ago

15 years without a single Simpsons game now because it's in the hands of one of the worst companies, EA. A license in the hands of one of the worst companies and look what they have done to it. They have effectively killed it to make money off that crappy mobile game.

brewin627d ago

Im with you, I hate when companies effectively kill off a franchise like that. They could have done anything with the license and they did THAT?! 🤦🤷

brewin627d ago

My dream would be for Volition to use the Saints Row engine for a Simpsons open world game. Would be awesome!

brewin627d ago

Hit and Run was by far my favorite, even though I loved the Simpsons Arcade. I even had the full old school cabinet in my house at one point! A video store in my town went out of business the guy sold me the arcade unit for $50 😳 I couldn't say no! Good times.

I totally wish we could get a new Hit and Run sequel or similar open world GTA style Simpsons game. I loved exploring the iconic places in game. I'm so glad I live near Universal Orlando, the Simpsons themed parts of the town are amazingly detailed and fun to be around, even if the rides suck.

The Simpsons Arcade was awesome

VenomUK31d ago

I never knew there are TWENTY-EIGHT Simpsons games!

Stuart575630d ago

Its crazy when you look at ALL the games they made. Same with Assassins Creed, when you count in all the handheld and mobile games there are three times what you may have thought. Some of it shovelware though. I completed Simpsons Arcade recently at a local retro gaming arcade, awesome, I really felt like a 90's kid all over again, except my back was hurting!!


The Simpsons: Hit & Run Devs Don’t Understand Why the Game Never Got a Sequel

In an interview with MinnMax, the team behind The Simpsons: Hit & Run revealed they were shocked that the game didn't get a sequel.

XiNatsuDragnel102d ago

Same I want a hit and run 2 fr make it

VenomUK101d ago

I wish the guy that recreated the game with updated graphics made a deal with the publisher and released it,! It would be win, win for everyone.

Snookies12102d ago

It's okay, I don't understand it either. One of the few games I went out of my way to go for 100% on.

-Foxtrot102d ago

I loved this game as a kid, probably the best Simpsons game they made and the fact they decided to not continue it is baffling. Probably more baffling that they aren't doing a remake or something considering the popularity.

The only thing I didn't really like about it was how everything was timed, some missions like racing Skinner to the school I understood as you were trying to give Lisa her science project she forgot but there were others where it was only telling you to get to a location (no urgency) yet it was still timed.

I just wanted to take my time and appreciate the game more, mess around and try different ways of going about things so hopefully if there ever is a sequel they will look into it. Just felt I was rushing through the story.


It’s The Simpsons Hit & Run’s 20th anniversary celebration

It’s been 20 years since one of the first surprisingly good Simpsons game was released.

Yeah this was a good game. If I had to make any minor complaints it would be that the game could've done with more missions and the world being a bit more open, and add some more side stuff to do, other than that it was a fun game. And because of the cartoony colourful graphics it looked better than Vice City.

If there's a sequel or remake they would only need to add the things I said above along with some refinements and better graphics, the rest is pretty much fine as it is.

edureboucas166d ago

We can only dream of a sequel where that's a definite possibility, right?

chicken_in_the_corn165d ago

I'd love a sequel. They could do so much more than they could in the original.

cammers1995165d ago

This is one of those games that really needs a remaster.

edureboucas165d ago

Fans did it on PC, right? It would sure benefit from having an official one!
