Looks okay, the graphics aren't barnstormingly brilliant but I see they are obviously trying to keep to the cartoon theme of course. The prospects look much more appealing. Generally it looks cool. Doubt it'll set the world on fire but would be damn fantastic if it did.  big grin

Why am I so negative? Because it's obviously too good to release on a PC, obviously, but the PC is too good for me to get a console. I'm a bitter, bitter man...

It's great to finally see some fram grabs from the game   smile Although they aren't very revealing, and the graphics aren't amazing, but graphics don't make a good game. As long as the gameplay is good, and the storyline is decent, then I'm sure it will be amazing   big grin

Keep in mind that these shots were not approved for release. The final game might or might not look different.

it looks ok.  I was kinda hoping it wouldnt look like the simpson ps2 games, cause those kinda suck.  I really hope its not gonna be like that, though it probably will :/  id rather have a game looking like maximo or jak and dex than something like simpson road rage.

Looks pretty neat. Just imagine how great this would look on PC, but I guess I'll never get to see that! Yes, I'm just as bitter as Zed.

For now the account of faces looks to low for me (numer of polygons), the characters looks like they have near 300-500 faces each when they shoud have 2000-3000

I'm glad there's no black outlines on the characters. At first i was glad the game was console only. FPSs are for the pc and platformers are for consoles. But thinking now....we could make custom skins of more obscure characters and stuff. Oh man, that'd kick ass!

Sure would. But just the announcement of the actual game and it not being canned is good enough for me. I think the most exelling part in the game will be the sound. Like the SP games, 'cept alot better looking.

No online play on consoles? No innovation? Those aren't simply false, they're criminally negligent. They do not even resemble reality.

Anyway, I like the cell-shaded look.  Gives it character, and stuff.

hm.. a bit dissapointing. I really hope they'll add outlines to add the little spark it's missing. It would resemble the show more, and overall look much better, instead of being a bit 'bald'

Ah yes but consoles really don't have paint programs, no word-processors, and the various other things that are just too complicated to use with just Sqaure, Box, Triangle and Cross.
So, since I have all these features, and more (like I can update my games and make them even better), why the hell should I waste money on an inferior machine? What would it achive?

NB, this is not a dig at you Nixorbo, sir, I'm merely voicing my totally unreal reasoning.

Bitter, bitter I. Hey, maybe I should add that to my sig.  tongue

You have to bear in mind that still images of games rarely compliment them. When it all goes together and moves, it gets a lot better. It does look a little sloppy though.

these screens are a bit shady but still mouthwatering but i noticed somebody saying they liked the glagnars human rinds screen shot but that possibly aint from the game as it looks just like the one in the series so even if it was an FMV it wouldnt be of such good quality of course if i am rong plz correct me  roll eyes

You guys will believe anything, you forget that this is the internet. When we see 'real' screens I hope it shows that they ARE using cell shading like on jet set radio future on xbox because it will keep it looking true to the program, the models in The Simpsons road rage look crap. I hope it comes out on xbox because it will look so much better than PS2 but I have both so whatever. Just had a closer look at the screens and noticed that Conrad looks like a skin model from The Simpsons road rage but the screen with Fry next to the table looks cel shaded, if these are for real, what gives?!?!  confused

hermes was a cut scene (im guessing) and fry was actual game play.  Which looked cell shaded.  the game will be on the ps2, xbox, and gamecube.

AND, remember, these were leaked images.  NOT OFFICIAL.  dont judge the game yet.  wait for at least video clips or official screen shots.

My guess would be that every screenshot that has the Fry life meter in the top left is from actualy gameplay, and the one with Leela, Bender and Fry is what cut scenes look like

The lack of detail (even for a cartoony look-- frankly, I'd be TERRIBLY disappointed to see a PS2 game looking like this) makes me think these screenshots are from an unfinished version. Don't you think that one with Fry down by the bottom looks a lot better than the others? I'm sure it's from a more completed part. Especially since he has that cel-shaded outline, which none of the others has, and it'd be pretty wonky for the style to fluctuate like that. (Even if some are from cutscenes, they HAVE to be realtime, not FMV-- for the laymen, that means the same graphics as gameplay.)
With that in mind, lookin' good.  big grin

i fully agree. but i think ps2 doesn't support cell shaded graphics...

anyways, although the screenshots are really, really tiny, what (i think) i see is ... well... okay. not that great, but okay.
not that i really care cos i don't own a console and i don't plan to buy one either.

cel-shading makes a 3d image look like a pic from a comic i.e black line around edge. but it still retains its 3d-ness

Damn it! I get a php error. I'll have to wait for those screens. But it's good to hear that it has cel-shaded graphics. I just hope the character models don't look too pointy.
