I have it (for the ps3) and am about 40% through it. As a simpsons fan, I'm enjoying it. As a strict platformer, it has its faults, but I can overlook that due to the humor and content.

I'm curious, how does the framerate hold up on the wii version?

Animated movie and TV show games have never interested me. The Simpsons game actually scored pretty decent around review sites compared to most movie games so doesn't sound that bad at all

the frames hold up well. i havent noticed any slowdowns at all, that being said.. the graphics aren't as sharp as they are on the 360/ps3.

i have yet to try 2 player coop mode, but i cant wait.

Zoomy, how does this game integrate into the Wii? Does it make good use of the Wii-mote and Nunchuck? Sometimes having better gameplay through use of the Wii-mote makes up for the loss of graphics compared to the 360/PS3

it works pretty well, you use the motion controls in the minigames and when you do the special abilities of the characters. I like is alot becasue it keeps you more involved. however, i dont like that when you use lisas ability (to move things) the hand you grab with is static. that is the only give away that this game was made for consoles without the ability to point at the screen

I liked the demo but it lacks of original when it comes to plaformer game. They did excellent job bring Simpsons gangs in 3D, almost like we're watching actual tv show.

Maybe will pick it up when its under $20.

I've played the 360 version through a few times already. It's not the best game ever, but its very entertaining.

Me and the Fiance beat the game over a year ago. Was well worth the $15 I think I spent on it.
