You forgot to mention that they release the games incomplete.

I wouldn't know; I haven't played an EA game for years.

Look at Sims 3 for example, it seems pretty basic and they released about 30 DLCs where all 30 were the same price as the game.

They generally didn't release incomplete games in the PS2 days, with there being no DLC and all.

The game wasn't too bad. I mean the cutscenes/main plot was really great. But the game's controls were mediocre at best. I still enjoyed playing it though, to an extent.

The Planet Express level is so fun. I used to play it over and over again just to explore the building. The game also had an awesome score from Chris Tyng. big grin

I can agree with that. It was always neat exploring the building, even if it's missing a lot of key rooms (and if you look at a top-down view of the level, you can see that it most definitely doesn't fit into the shape of the building).

Question: what year is the game set in within the show's universe? 3003?

About that. I kinda thought it was set before the third and forth season. I mean, it's non canon anyway, so it could be set at any time.

I think I've asked this before but does anyone know if the PS2 version of the game is compatible with the PS3? Some old Playstation games work (every game I've tried, actually), but apparently not all do and the Futurama game is obscure enough that I can't find any confirmation of this, either way, online.

I played the game back when it came out, over at my friend's house, but it'd be nice to buy it and revisit it at some point. Especially given that here in the UK, you can pick a copy up for pretty much the cost of postage and packaging.

The original Xbox version is compatible with the 360, so I'd be quite surprised if the Playstation 2 release wasn't also forwards-compatible.

I believe it depends on which PS3 console you have. They stopped making them backwards compatible at some point.

a quick search..
The model and serial number can be used to determine whether or not the unit is compatible, and can be found on the bar code sticker on the bottom or back of the console. The model number follows the 11-digit serial number.

    The CECH-Axx and CECH-Bxx models, 60 GB and 20 GB models, respectively, are backwards compatible. The CECH-Cxx and CECH-Exx models, 60 GB and 80 GB models, respectively, are partially compatible.[2]
    Models G, H, J, K, L, M, P, and Q are "fat" models that are not compatible.
    None of the "slim" models are backwards compatible.

I once tried playing the game on an emulator. It was slow as hell, but the novelty alone was worth it.

All my old Crash Bandicoot games work on my PS3, so I expect it'll be fine. I think I just need to take the plunge and buy an old copy.

My girlfriend just started playing my old copy of The Simpsons: Hit & Run and it's reminded me how much I would have loved a similar game based on Futurama. I don't think a video game would be an unreasonable way for them to continue the franchise in some fashion, but, sadly, I can't see it happening at this point. It's a shame.

Our best hope is a big publisher sees some potential in the Futurama IP, and gives it a crack. I'd love a Futurama game developed by a studio like Rocksteady.

If there are any more Futurama video games in the future, it would most likely be a much smaller, download-only project. I can't imagine the existing Futurama game turned a huge profit for the developers.

Which is a shame, as on a conceptual level, Futurama lends itself better to potential video game adaptation than just about any other franchise I can think of.

I think the cel-shading graphics worked really, really well with the first game; it was a nice thing to look at alone. The gameplay was difficult, but once you get used to it and work out how each level works you can get through the game without too many problems.

I have to disagree on the graphics. I get that it's an old game and technology's come a long way since then, but I found the visuals to be really off-putting. They still looked like low-poly 3D models and the textures were a bit weird.

Maybe I'm nitpicking a bit here.

I thought graphics were good, even surprisingly so (though it may have been better resolution with emulator). I agree cel-shading is fitting to style, characters were also close enough to original in order to not bother.

It bothered me that you couldn't see Fry's back points most of the time. He and Leela looked crap, Bender and the Professor looked good though.

As long as it's not just a Futurama tapped-out rip-off, I'll take it.
