The Simpsons™ Road Rage facts & Screens

by Rainier on Sept. 7, 2001 @ 8:28 p.m. PDT

The Simpsons Road Rage blends renowned Simpsons wit and edge-of-your-seat racing action into a rip-roaring, reckless and riotously-funny arcade-style driving game. An XBoX version is also scheduled but wont be ready till early 2002.

Mr. Burns is up to his greedy ways again, purchasing the Springfield Transit Corporation and jacking up the fares. Refusing to shell out the high rates, Springfield citizens are forced into humorous "road rage" as they brave angry commuters, jam-packed back-routes and the challenge to make enough money to buy back the Transit Corporation before time runs out. No time for donuts, Homer.
