Your getting Hit and Run mixed up with Simpsons Road Rage.
Hit and Run is a Simpsons themed Grand Theft Auto and good game at that in my opinion :)

Typical. I got to a shop the other day, noticed some unpriced 360 games, ask the guy how much, and he looks online to CeX and gives me the same price as on the website (Around £5 each) so I decide to leave it. Return the next day, they were now £1 each. :lol: (This was actually a family owned business, not a charity shop but close enough.)

So picked em up for a pound each. Both Sleeping Dogs and Splinter Cell Conviction.

picked up a few more ps3 games. Call of Juarez Bound in Blood, Sega Rally, Burnout Paradise and GTA IV. left behind a couple of COD games - MW2 and something else. not really interested in those though.
all for £1.50 or less.

i'm all for more ps3 games showing up in my local shops at the minute - stops me from considering getting a PS4 or Xb1 :D

Got this lot for £10 the other day. All games complete except THPS2 which just had a demo disc inside, and Crash 3 is missing the manual. I used the sports games cases to replace the broken ones on the decent games here

Thats a decent idea. I might start doing that if I can get the games cheap enough.
