  • Summary: Play through three stories that intersect in typical Family Guy fashion. Be Stewie and match wits against his brother and arch-nemesis Bertram as they vie to take over the world. Take control of Peter and fight to stop Mr. Belvedere who he thinks is trying to take over the world. Slip on a collar and down a martini as Brian attempt to escape prison and prove your innocence in a puppy parental case gone awry. Expand

    What's most impressive is the way a lot of humor is injected into the actual gameplay.
  2. A fun game and is well worth playing through. Unfortunately, you can play through the game in less than eight hours. While brief, most of the game plays fairly well and the quirky characters and jokes will have you laughing out loud at times.
  3. Though it gets the show's style of humor down pat, Family Guy is derailed by frustrating and uninteresting gameplay.
  4. I'll give the Stewie segments a 70, the Peter segments a 60, and the Brian stealth missions a 50. Averaged out the game would get a generous 60, but I'll give it a one point demerit for the lameness of the mini-games.
  5. The game might look great, but the gameplay is seriously lacking. Five years ago, Family Guy might have made a wave in the gaming world; today it makes hardly a ripple.
  6. 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.
  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.
