Family Guy Video Game Review


The new game from Take-Two's 2K Games introduces the Griffins to gamers everywhere. Players take on the role of multiple characters such as Stewie, Brian the Dog, and Peter, the hapless patriarch, as they interact with many of the citizens of Quahog.

IGN 41%
three different genres packed into one game, but none of them work well at all. It's repetitive, boring and even frustrating way more often than it should be.

1up 71%
Several stages become quite repetitive, placing you in essentially identical situations, with identical characters, over and over. However there's so much else here that easily makes up for the blemishes. For hardcore fans of the show, especially at the $30 price, it's still pretty freakin' sweet.

Gamespot 64%
Though it gets the show's style of humor down pat, Family Guy is derailed by frustrating and uninteresting gameplay.

..no your right... but then we haven't trained or driven a red mazaratti... we'd merely have to accustom ourselves to a different way of living....

training....bah!

Bah^2!

We'd be drinking smoking and eating smoked chhese with bacon right on the track. And I'd rather have a driver for my Clio than a Mazerrati...
