Conclusion: Family Guy is definitely 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. Fans of the cartoon should seriously consider playing through this game.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game offers the same crude humor, inappropriate jokes, and crass comments that populate the adult TV show with a cult following, including jabs at various religions, people with disabilities, and inappropriate sexual remarks. Parents must be aware that while this game looks like a cartoon, it is full of risqué content that is inappropriate for children.
Excerpt: is a horrible game, it's just... well, rather blah -- not just in terms of the gameplay, which I understand is supposed to be a play on the classic kinds of games out there, but in the writing and jokes as a whole. I wanted to love this game, I really did, but there's a lot of frustration tucked in between those good, hearty laughs -- and even more light snickers rather than serious gut-busters.
Excerpt: Who would have thought that after twice being canceled in a period of just over two years, Family Guy would not only return to television, but prove to be even more popular than it was during its initial runs? The franchise is now seeing higher ratings, a made-for-DVD movie, and 2K Games and High Voltage Software's new video game adaptation of the show for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PlayStation Portable.
Pros: An amusing storyline rife with offensive humor, Great voice work from the cast of the show, Attractive cel-shaded graphics
Cons: None of the gameplay styles are developed enough to be fun for more than a few minutes, Too many weirdly frustrating moments in what is otherwise a pretty simple game, A hefty chunk of recycled dialogue from episodes of the show
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 as 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 from also taking over the world. Slip on a collar and down a martini as Brian and attempt to sneak out of prisonâ€¦ so you can take over the world.
Summary: „Family Guy – das Videospiel“ blüht leider das gleiche Schicksal wie so vielen anderen Titeln, die aus einer Lizenz heraus entstanden sind. Das Gameplay zeichnet sich zu meist durch die wenige Abwechslung und die stark beschränkten Möglichkeiten aus und auch technisch wäre hier deutlich mehr möglich gewesen. Das fertige Produkt kann nur dann überzeugen, wenn die Messlatte der Erwartungen ein ganzes Stück nach unten wandert.
Conclusion: Family Guy raakt precies de juiste snaar als het op humor aankomt, maar de gameplay is gewoonweg niet diepgaand genoeg om je ook echt geboeid te houden. Dit zorgt ervoor dat je na elke grappige cutscene weer een beetje ongeïnteresseerd doorspeelt totdat weer een nieuwe hilarische situatie zich voordoet.
