The Simpsons haven’t received a great deal of games over the past few years. In fact the last console title was The Simpsons game, which is now approaching a decade since its initial release. While many of the games that were released using The Simpsons license have been big misses, there have been a number of impressive entries that have stood the test of time.

The Simpsons’ games perhaps never shone brighter than when Homer, Marge, Bart and co took to the roads in The Simpsons Road Rage and The Simpsons Hit and Run. I’ve always wanted a follow up to these games,  so in a lot of ways this has been a long time coming. Heck, The Simpsons Hit and Run made my game of the year list!

This particular roster is a spiritual follow up to those games, but with emphasis on racing. It pits roughly 45 of Springfield’s best and brightest in signature vehicles that are found in the long-running show!

For the first time in this series, you can check out a video of the proposed roster in action!

  2. And yes, I wish they made Hit & Run 2 on the 360.

  3. Four Homers? What’s next: Dark Homer? Good roster overall. Not many surprises besides Bender.

  4. Ralph, Itchy, Scratchy and Poochie should’ve been playable as well, but overall good roster.

    • If you look carefully, Ralph makes a little cameo in the school bus!
