YMMV: The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World
  • Anticlimax Boss: The Abominable Snow-Burns is the game's easiest boss by some distance, and way easier than the first boss, Fu Manchu Burns.
  • Porting Disaster: The version released for the Master System and Game Gear strips out all the storyline sequences, has even worse controls than the NES version, and strips the soundtrack down to just two short, repetitive tunes.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Like its predecessor, you have to use the A button for both running and jumping.
  • That One Level: The Hollywood section of the game in its entirety, as the levels are far longer than in any of the previous three sections, and turn into pure Platform Hell at points.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: It's definitely an improvement over Bart vs. the Space Mutants, and aside from the arcade game and possibly Bart's Nightmare, arguably even the best Simpsons game to be released during the 90s. But it still has a lot of control issues hanging over from its predecessor, and can be repetitive and Nintendo Hard at points.
