  1. I already suffered through the X-Men game this summer, so I figured Family Guy comedy would give the formula a much-needed lift. Clearly I've been betrayed, suckered into the same damn thing, and now I'm just frustrated. Family Guy has come very far in reproducing the TV experience, but doesn't get the same ratings.
  2. 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.
  4. 41
    It's repetitive, boring and even frustrating way more often than it should be.
  5. Here's the problem with splitting up a game into three distinct parts: if two of them suck, the third doesn't stand a chance, even with a cult hit TV-show license to lend a hand. [Jan. 2007, p.76]
  6. 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.

    7.5 is what I think actually. My friend gave it to me for my birthday, as we're both huge fans of the show, I didnt blow 30 bucks on it. 7.5 is what I think actually. My friend gave it to me for my birthday, as we're both huge fans of the show, I didnt blow 30 bucks on it. Stewie's levels are decent fun, Brian's levels are terrible but can be good(the first newstation level was actually prettty good.) Peters are actually not too shabby. Thing is, pretty much every character made an appearance, from the evil monkey (!!!) to Helen Keller, EVERYBODY. The game is incredibly funny. Hardcore fans, buy. Normal fans, rent. Everyone else, no. Just no. P.S yes, you can fight as Peter in his prostitute outfit and as Rufus Griffin. But there are no new abilities in those outfits. Full Review »

    Flat out worst game I've played in 06. I rented this game in the hopes it could at least have good humor but I was so wrong. The Flat out worst game I've played in 06. I rented this game in the hopes it could at least have good humor but I was so wrong. The gameplay is god awful and worst of all the game doesn't even make you laugh. THe jokes are literally recycled from previous episodes and thrown in to the game. Family Guy the game has no positive qualities and I would be hard pressed to find something that sucked more than this game. Full Review »
