My missus very kindly bought me a Nintendo DS for Christmas. It was an awesome present, especially as it was a total surprise and wasn’t the result of months of laboured hinting.

One of the games that came along with it was The Simpsons Game. It had some mixed reviews but it’s actually a pretty good laugh.

Although it stands accused of being a lazy EA cash-in, the license is used well, and there are some good gaming references in there, poking fun at various things, including EA themselves. Plus it’s not one of those super-hard platformers that no-one can ever complete!
