Yeah, that would stop me from buying it right there, I don't have my xbox hooked up with analog audio cables. Perhaps I can go to the local blockbuster and check this out firsthand, because if it weren't for that I would most like to get the xbox version.

The game 'Sky Odyssey' for the PS2 had the same problem. No audio if you are hooked up with anything other than analog audio. I sold it right back.

PS2's support of the optical out is a lot sketchier, though. My stereo tends to lose sync with it sometimes, whereas it has never lost sync with the xbox or anything else.

[quote] The Xbox version could not output audio if you had it hooked up to your reciever via the digital audio cable. [quote]
How is that possible? Isn't the responsibility for handling the 1s and 0s with the hardware? Through the DAC to the analog outputs or piped straight out through the optic cable.

That's the same thing I was thinking, Jay... It would be like if a certain DVD didn't output DTS over an optical cable. That doesn't make sense, when it's only a signal going over a cable when the transmission method shouldn't matter.

There are a few PS2 games that don't work over the Optical cable... don't ask me how. I believe Parappa the Rapper 2 is one of them. Glen

My Xbox is hooked up with both optical and RCA audio outputs. Simpsons Hit & Run plays fine over both. -Dave

Kinda boring, so far. Posted Image I just played for about 1 1/2 hours, but nothing really "fun" has happened so far. It is structed like GTAIII, but has a very linear feel so far. I just got to the second area though, so hopefully things will open up more.

I'm getting a strange visual artifact though - when the screen has a lot of detail, the image momentarily shifts when I rotate. For example, if the camera was rotating clockwise, the bottom half of the screen will pause for a split-second while the top continues to rotate. I've seen this in PC games when running on an PC that wasn't up to par, but only once on a console (the 720p mode of Tony Hawk 4).

Agreed, plays fine on my optical line. I apparently like the game more than Dave does, I think its awesome so far and I'm still on the 'Homer' missions. Definitly worth a buy IMO. Sam

iv'e seen the scene skipping thing too. so far the only other problem i have is control of the cars driving. it seems too loose. lots of wide turns going around corners.

Can anyone with the Xbox version confirm whether or not you can play it in 16:9 widescreen? I bought the PS2 version, which can't be played widescreen and I would consider trading it in for the Xbox version if it plays in widescreen.

I am playing it on a panny 50" lcd, and it is 480p widescreen, and I am seeing some wierd graphically problems, as well, but I think it is one of the best games of the year Posted Image I am up to the lisa missions.

There are a couple of bugs and the camera is horrible sometimes, but it's by far the best simpsons game yet.

Finally picked this game up, and I have to agree, it is addicting to play. The controls are great, the graphics are great, and the exploring is interesting. This is what Simpsons Road Rage should havebeen, rather than just a straight out driving game. Although, I hope that Konami still releases a port of the original arcade game with a brand new beat em up game included...
