Excerpt: No seriously, drop dead. They made a Family Guy video game? I haven’t been this happy since my last visit to that wonderful fantasy world . Or wait... this could end up way worse than, well, Meg . Yeah, I know... clever! But some people really like the Family Guy shtick, and Seth MacFarlane’s six-year-old brainchild has been there at the edge of comedic irreverence and prime time animation.
Pros: First-rate voice acting, great music, Bright colors and lively animation, Repetitive but extremely short, Trial-and-error ad nauseam, Comedy gets drowned out, Unoriginal on multiple levels, wow
Excerpt: A videogame based on a Fox animated series that was cancelled but found new life on Cartoon Network … that features an original storyline penned by the show’s writers … that lets you play as three of the show’s main characters and includes numerous references to episodes of the show … hmm … that reminds me of the time when I reviewed Futurama. It’s déjà vu all over again with the Family Guy game.
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
