The Simpsons Arcade Game downloaded....and finished!!

Back when Konami was making its mark in arcades with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Simpsons was getting a lot of attention into its second season, the two combined forces and spawned a cult phenomina simply called The Simpsons Arcade Game.  Based off the same engine and art style as the TMNT arcade game, The Simpsons Arcade Game was an instant fan favorite, eating quarters from kids everywhere.  And now, it finally makes a home in the console market.

And, in about a good half hour, the game is already finished!  Well, it's hardly anything to say you beat an arcade game, especially when you have "free play" at hand.  But the game is not the same unless you get more people to play, either locally or online.  Surprisingly, though, I've played through the game 4 times already (each time with a different Simpson), and each time was just as fulfilling as the last.  In fact, I may have actually improved a little, making the whole challenge of progressing through the game with only one life (which is a mode in this game) something feasible.
