The Simpsons demo on Xbox live marketplace

After Kang and Kodos use their Halloween ray on Springfield's famous Lard Lad statue, it's up to Homer and Bart to stop the rampaging mascot from destroying the town. To do this the two must fend off waves of miniature Krusty dolls while avoiding Lard Lad's destructive laser and stomp attacks in an attempt to pull out his wiring. Will our heroes prevail? The fate of Springfield is in your hands!

the Simpsons demo is really good, it's really fun to play and I think I'm actually gonna buy the game. EA seems to have a quality game here.
I am a big Simpsons fan, so that helps to, I guess.

This is gonna be another GOOD game in the franchise. I remember growing up and every Simpsons game sucking. For some of you kids, it may be surprising, but the Simpsons game use to be awful. Since about 03, they've been great!

Swe_Goliath5829d ago

The ps3 already got this demo and that means if i understand correctly now that the PSN is starting to get faster at demos ?

Bnet3435829d ago

because xbox 360 always gets the demos first, so they kind of want even it out. for example, you didnt get the bladestorm demo this week did you?

vgn245829d ago

I'm happy that PSN got a demo first. They need it. All the Sony fanboys were whining that they still don't have Conan and had to wait for Bladestorm. Be careful before you throw stones, cause you're only armed with pebbles bro.

MS usually test there demo's for several days to a week before release to ensure a smooth download and play.

No big deal, and yeah, the game seems fun, I loved all the little krusty's running around too.

Barreldragon005829d ago

Played the game yesterday it was really fun i'm going to have to at least rent the game now.

The best part is trying to get all of the comic book guys satire awards they had me laughing so hard

.. just not my cup of tea. But not BAD by any means.

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

Orchard466d ago

I'd be down for either :)

RedDevils466d ago

I like the old Simpsons cast more.

Number1TailzFan467d 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.

NecrumOddBoy466d ago

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!

-Hermit-466d ago

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

Venoxn4g466d ago

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.

chicken_in_the_corn466d ago

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

-Hermit-466d 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.

brewin466d 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?! 🤦🤷

brewin466d ago

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

brewin466d 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.

How much you want to bet a Simpsons game remake wouldn't have Marge wielding that vacuum?

The Simpsons Arcade game was a fond childhood memory. And Hit and Run was another fantastic game. Most of the rest are meh.

Virtual Springfield is my favorite Simpsons game. It was a point and click adventure title that served as a living fangasm.

I also played Simpsons Tapped Out for about 3 years but had to stop because even with a cracked version, it was getting too much with the micromanagement. Would love it if it was a game to buy without the phone microtransactions.

SegaGamer1363d ago

The Simpons Hit & Run, Virtual Bart and The Simpsons Game are my top 3. EA have killed Simpsons games though, they are just sitting on that crappy mobile game.
