It occurred to me recently that Futuramas one and only attempt at a game and The Simpsons game tend to get similar praise and criticisms when people are reviewing them. Good, funny story, lackluster gameplay, little replay value, no multi-player, etc. For those that have played both, which do you think is better?

I haven't played The Simpsons Game, but I found the Futurama game to be pretty crappy for the most part.

The Simpsons Hit and Run was flippin' awesome though. smile

I've never played the Futurama game. I don't know where I'd get a copy.

I did play Simpsons Hit and Run though, that was very good xD

Indeed it was. That would win by a mile if I included it in the poll.

I've played NDS version of The Simpsons Game. I really liked it with all different genres and just the parodying them. It wasn't too easy (and certainly not too hard). Enjoyable for a Simpsons fan.

I haven't played Futurama game yet, but I'm planning to do so soon.

I had The Simpsons Game on DS and I used to love playing it, but I love the Futurama game more because of the graphics and plot and gameplay. It was challenging, but fun. Had a great soundtrack too. And I managed to collect all the Nibblers! big grin

The futurama game had an awesome series of cutscenes, like an entirely new episode, pretty much.

Like a lost adventure of Futurama? I've seen it and it had fairly good jokes in it.

For all of its flaws I thought the Futurama game was alright. I never could really get into The Simpsons Game... Granted I had it for Wii which probably accounts for a lot of the things I disliked at the time of purchase.

Now that I'm playing Futurama game, I'll say I'd prefer it more as a whole, continuous game. But it's hard to compare and decide which one is better, because Futurama game is older and I haven't played an "actual" The Simpsons Game (in PS3/Xbox360).

Futurama Game.

I've played The Simpsons Game over a friends house a few times, and actually enjoyed it. But the gameplay of both games felt extremely similar. Or maybe that was just because I only played the chocolate bunny level, and the museum level. And the story of The Simpsons Game isn't really that great.

Also, I OWN the Futurama Game, so I could plug in my ps2 and play it anytime. I liked the story on that 5x better. So granted that they have similar gameplay aspects, their stories are on like, opposite paths.

So I decided to go down Futurama's path, since I am more fond of Futurama than Simpsons (modern-day Simpsons, anyways. Nothing beats the Classic Seasons 1-8. Truly the golden age of Sitcoms).

The cutscenes are available in the special features of The Beast with a Billion Backs. If all you're interested in is the story, then I'd just watch that. Like I said; the game itself is pretty unremarkable in my opinion. It's got some rather shoddy controls and awkward mechanics.

There isn't a newer game unfortunately, and I doubt there ever will be unless the show gets a massive boost in popularity somehow and a big publisher buys the license.

A man can dream though. A man can dream. I'd pay full price for a Futurama sandbox game.

That would be awesome! It could basically be about making deliveries to other planets, but you could also steal other ships and rob people GTA and Simpsons hit and run style.

In my day a sandbox game was when you played with your toys in the sand.

Back when Xbox was popular, I played Futurama: The Game nonstop. I guarantee you'll like it. I might find the PC version now.

The only one I've actually played is The Simpsons Game, but I only played the low quality Nintendo DS version a few years ago. The Futurama game is much too expensive for me right now. I fit ever goes down in price, I'd love to play it, asI thni it looks leagues better than the Simpsons Game.

I love that game, and I've always wished that they made a Futurama version where you could drive the Ship around and make deliveries and whatnot. Imagine how amazing that'd be!

That would be pretty cool, actually. As a huge fan of both GTA (which obviously inspired H&R) and Futurama, I'd definitely enjoy that. smile

A GTA V style character switching mechanic would be neat as well.

I'd say Crazy Taxi was a bigger inspiration on H&R than GTA.  So much so that Sega sued.

You're thinking of Road Rage. That was basically "Crazy Taxi: Simpsons Edition". To be honest, I enjoyed RR more so than CT, though.

The Simpsons: Hit & Run is where it's at.
oh, it's definitely better than the two games in the poll. I only used those two because they receive similar praises and criticisms.

As far as I know, no PC version was ever released.
Had it been, I probably would've completed the game a few times by now.

I've had tons of memories with The Simpsons: Hit and Run.
