    What's most impressive is the way a lot of humor is injected into the actual gameplay.
  2. It's a decent rental, in the same way that a softcore flick about aliens coming to earth to learn the ways of love is fun once, but there's no real longevity to any one part of the game.
  3. Though it gets the show's style of humor down pat, Family Guy is derailed by frustrating and uninteresting gameplay.
  4. Fun for fans of the show, but doesn't take long to become really repetitive. [Jan 2007, p.58]
  5. Though voiced and scripted by the people behind the TV show, the game is lightweight, and its quirky navigation and control issues make it one for serious fans only.
  6. The humor in the game is very funny and could almost pass for a lost episode of the show. However the rest of the game just falls apart due to the gameplay.
  7. Family Guy feels divorced from the quality of its TV show inspiration; although funny, the game play is shallow and poorly realized... even more notably on PSP. Next!
  8. Trouble is, the designers seem to be unaware of the fact that occasionally the player may die and be forced to restart an area...and listen to the same, unskippable, longwinded intro each time. [Jan. 2007, p.86]
  9. Seems better suited as a handheld...sort of. [Jan 2007, p.88]

    It's repetitive, boring and even frustrating way more often than it should be.
  11. With such a drastic difference in features and entertainment value between Stewie and the rest of his kin, one wonders why he didn't just get his own game. As it stands, you'll have to play through some pretty irritating nonsense just to get to the good stuff, and it's just not worth the effort.

    Exactly what I expected it to be -- a perfectly mediocre game with a few good jokes and not a whole lot of gameplay.
  13. The only positive thing I can say about the game is that the designers at least nailed the look and feel of the show, but how hard was that when you have all the artists, and actors?
  14. Most of the action is aggravating, but Brian's stealth missions are intolerable. In several of his levels, you have to steer him away from trees, or he'll lose control and make you wait while he takes a whiz.

    Rubbish. Absolute rubbish. I was completely dissapointed from many points of view. Jokes were constantly being reused, the gameplay is just Rubbish. Absolute rubbish. I was completely dissapointed from many points of view. Jokes were constantly being reused, the gameplay is just aweful, and the graphics had the potential to be good, but they were bland. The only real good thing about it was the voice acting. I'm not a Family Guy hater since I completely loved the first 3 seasons, but this game is just aweful, and the sad this is that Family Guy drones will buy it simply because it is about Family Guy.
