  • Summary: The first video game based on the hugely popular Family Guy TV show, the Family Guy game will feature the same outrageous humor all the fans know and love. Play through three stories that intersect in typical Family Guy fashion. Play as the loveable Peter, the diabolical Stewie and the charismatic Brian. Visit familiar locations around Quahog and interact with many beloved characters from the show. Funny and unique combination of combat, stealth and puzzle-solving gameplay. Take part in the jokes, parodies and sarcasm as though you were part of the show. [2K games] Expand

    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. 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]
  5. 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.
  7. 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.
