just got done playing the demo. This game rocks. Must buy if you are a Simpsons fan.

If you aren't a simpsons fan, then you probably won't like it and you suck. Go watch your girly anime.

lol I just played the demo from Live and at the end it said something like:

"Target time to complete: 4:00 mins. Your time: 38:24 mins"

The controls are not very good. The whole boss is a bit silly because you have to wait for ages sometimes before he's in a position to hit him and be able to jump on to the ledge that appears.

Thats how it was with my game. It took me over 30 minutes to beat that boss as well.

Yea the controls arent good. The way of taking out the boss is a bit dumb. Its Simpsons though. In the end, Homer is still punching the boss in the balls. Good clean fun.

I didn't play all the way through the demo. I wasn't a big fan of the controls... they just seemed a little "floaty" I guess.

Did anyone else notice a lot of "tearing" concerning the frame rate?

I might give it another shot in rental land.

Just picked up my copy at lunch time and realized I forgot to ask for my homerball. I called and they only have 3 left, so I probably won't bother going back after work.

I'm going to have to wait until tonight to play the game and give impressions. Anyone else pick this up yet and have intitial impressions?

I was about to play, but my wife is out of town for tonight. So right now I'm eating cheese, drinking wine, and playing poker online. I probably won't get to play this until pretty late tonight.

I played through the first 3 levels last night. Being a big simpsons fan, I am greatly enjoying the game thus far. Art, humor, voices are all spot on.

However - as a strict platformer, the flaws that are mentioned in reviews are definitely apparent. Mainly: The camera control, and as a result of that it can be quite difficult to make what normally should be fairly easy jumps.

Being such a big fan of the show, I can look past these flaws and still have a lot of fun with this game. I definitely recommend it for the fans, but perhaps not for those simply looking for a good platformer.

In a perfect world, I would love to have the simpsons game with the ratchet and clank controls and camera.
