The Simpsons Road Rage is a video game made by EA and released in 2001 for PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance. According to GameSpot, who gave the game a 6 out of 10 score, "The only saving grace Road Rage has is that it's a Simpsons game." The game also gained some controversy when video game company SEGA sued the creators of the show due to all of its similarity to the SEGA game Crazy Taxi. SEGA won the lawsuit, ceasing all production of new copies.


Mr. Burns has bought and converted the Springfield buses to nuclear-power, however, the now radioactive buses are wreaking havoc on the streets of Springfield. To save their city, the citizens of Springfield must raise a million dollars in order to buy the buses back, and they do so by banding together and taxiing people around the city to their destinations. Also, it is revealed that Kang and Kodos are actually playing this game. Kang gets tired of it, and Kodos inserts a version of Pong, known as the ultimate game. The two laugh while they play the game as their spaceship flies off.

Plot SummaryEdit

On an ordinary day at 742 Evergreen Terrace, Bart is playing a video game. Homer then blocks the TV, telling Bart to quit playing "those stupid video games" because he wants to watch TV. Bart begrudgingly obeys, and Homer then turns the channel to a news feed towards City Hall as the family is coming in. Kent Brockman addresses that they're live in front of City Hall where joyless plutocrat Charles Montgomery Burns is announcing his new lines of nuclear-powered buses. Burns then announces the Burns Atomic Mega-bus, which he claims to be "faster, cheaper, and completely safe!". However, Hans Moleman, who had presumably disembarked the bus, begs that someone kill him as he twitches and is embued with a radioactive glow. Marge then expresses her pity and wishes that Hans be put out of his misery. Lisa mentions that the buses are a threat to public health. Upon hearing those words, Homer gets the idea to make his own taxi service. After painting the side of his car with the words "Homer 4 Hire," Homer asks what they think of it, but Bart impatiently tells Homer to "get to the game already." Homer then speeds off, breaking his mailbox in the process.


There are 6 playable districts. One is unlocked from the start (Evergreen Terrace), the other five you need to unlock. These worlds are:


There are 17 characters, with 4 bonus holiday characters. Only 5 are available from the start (Homer Family Sedan, Bart Honor Roller, Marge Canyonero, Lisa Electaurus, and Grampa Shriners Cart). All other characters must be unlocked though Road Rage. The log from "Lisa the tree hugger" can be played through a promotion. It uses itself as a vehicle.

List of CharactersEdit

At one point in development, Principal Skinner, Jasper and Hans Moleman were playable drivers, but scrapped before the game's release.

A cheat code allows bonus characters to be unlocked. If they player plays the game on a holiday, a special character/vehicle will be available for that day. These special characters are:

  • Halloween Bart
  • Thanksgiving Marge
  • Christmas Apu
  • New Year's Krusty

Bonus Missions Edit

The game also features ten bonus missions that can be completed. Successful completion of the last mission unlocks another car for Homer.
