Review: The Simpsons Arcade Game

09 Feb

Konami has kept the retro-train chugging first with the release of the classic brawler X-Men Arcade, and now more recently with The Simpsons Arcade Game. Initially released in 1991, The Simpsons Arcade Game allows up to four players to take control of Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa in a quest to recover Maggie from the clutches of (who else) Mr. Burns. This is the first port of the arcade version to be released on home consoles. After more than 20 years in arcade obscurity, The Simpsons Arcade Game is finally here to let gamers relive one of the best games of the past.


I found that this port was a far better port in terms of quality than X-Men Arcade. I am happy that the game has finally seen release outside of the arcades as well. I have some gameplay videos up of the game in action, so check those out too.

Don't have a cow man. The Simpsons Arcade Game is available for download right now!

    It has been pretty interesting to see all the divisive opinions about this game, even from people with the nostalgia factor.
