The Simpsons Road Rage is a 2001 video game based on the animated television series The Simpsons, and it is part of a series of games based on the show. The Simpsons Road Rage stars Bart, Homer, Lisa, and Marge, as well as Mr. Burns and over 25 other characters from the show. The game has often been criticized for having too many similarities to Sega's Crazy Taxi.
Game Story: Mr. Burns has bought all transit systems in Springfield and has begun to create radioactive busses that threaten the public health, so the citizens of Springfield must use thier own cars as a means of safer public transport and earn money in a an attempt to pay back Burns to get rid of the Radioactive busses and return the town back to (almost) normal. The citizens of the city (managed by the game player) must earn money by driving cars around town in order to regain control of the transit systems. The game contains 17 different drivable/collectible vehicles, 6 starting locations (5 of which are unlockable), and 10 different missions. In order to collect the vehicles and unlock starting locations, players must earn progressively more money for each vehicle or starting location they want to get. In order to complete missions, players must do certain things (such as knocking down 12 baseball team mascots in 45 seconds or running into Gils within a time limit). To earn money, players must drive around a vehicle for a given amount of time, picking up passengers and taking them to their destinations. Any of the vehicles that the player has collected can be used as taxis. Players have to avoid certain hurdles, such as other vehicles that spin out of control, rocks, flying street objects, Burns's car, Mr. Burns's nuclear transit buses, and houses on difficult curves.
