The Simpsons Road Rage is a video game made by Electronic Arts and released in 2001 for PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and Game Boy Advance. According to GameSpot, who gave the game a 6 out of 10 score, "The only saving grace Road Rage has is that it's a Simpsons game".
Mr. Burns has converted the Springfield buses into nuclear powered ones and now they are wreaking havoc on the streets of Springfield. However, the citizens of Springfield have fought back and are now gaining enough money by taxi-ing people around Springfield to their wanted destinations for money. Once they have $1 million they'll have enough money to buy back the buses!
 Plot Summary
On an ordinary day at 742 Evergreen Terrace, Bart is playing a videogame. Homer then blocks the TV, telling Bart to quit playing "those stupid video games!" as he wants to watch TV. Bart begrudgingly obeys, and Homer then turns the channel to a news feed towards City Hall as the family is coming in. Kent Brockman then addresses that they are live at city hall where joyless plutocrat Charles Montgomery Burns is announcing his new lines of nuclear power buses. Burns then announces the Burns Atomic Mega-bus, which he claims to be "faster, cheaper, and completely safe!" However, Hans Moleman, who had presumably disembarked the bus, begs that someone kill him as he twitches and is embued with a radioactive glow. Marge then expresses her pity and wishes that Hans Moleman be put out of his misery. Lisa then mentions that the buses are a threat to public health. Homer, upon hearing those words, gets the idea to make his own taxi service. After painting the side of his car with the words "Homer 4 Hire", Homer asks what they think of it. Bart then impatiently tells Homer to "get to the game, already!" Homer then speeds off, breaking his mailbox in the process. Once they buy the transit back, Kang and Kodos are been revealed to be the players. Kang says his is tired of this game, and Kodos inserts a version of PONG, called the ultimate game. The two laugh as they play the game in their ship, and the ship flies away.
