The Simpsons Skateboarding
Preview By: Jared Black
Developer:  The Code Monkeys
Publisher:  Fox Interactive / EA
Genre:  Extreme Sports
# of Players:  1-2
Est. Release:  Q3 2002
Posted:  5-17-02

Despite a string of terrible games based on the license, EA continues to churn out games based on The Simpsons.  Maybe it has something to do with that whole "Cha-Ching!" thing.  It was inevitable that we'd see another one, and it's finally arrived in the form of The Simpsons far announced exclusively for the PS2.

Springfield has been converted into a giant skate park (we don't know why yet), and a grand prize of $99 has been offered for winning the tour prize.  As you can imagine a slew of characters are getting in on that action, each bringing more than 40 moves and tricks to the competition.   Confirmed characters thus far include the entire Simpsons family, Otto, Professor Fink, Nelson, and Krusty the Klown. Confirmed locations include Springfield Elementary, Krusty-Lu Studios, Downtown, Springfield Gorge, Itchy & Scratchy land, Sir Putt-A-Lot's, the Power Plant, and finally the Kwik-E-Mart.

Also included will be five modes of play: Freeskate, Skate Fest, Trick Contest, Skillz School, and H-O-R-S-E.  Additional boards, characters, and levels can be unlocked and there will be head-to-head modes included as well.

Will this be the Simpsons game that finally does the TV series justice?  We sure hope so.
