The first video game based on the hugely popular Family
Guy TV show features the same outrageous humour all the
fans know and love. Play as Stewie and match wits against
his 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 prison... so you can
take over the world...
Family Guy video game doesn't, I'm sorry to say, live
up to expectations. That's hardly surprising really. How can
you take all the fun and whit of the TV series and turn it
into a video game? Short answer - you can't, apparently.
game producers very almost pull off the humour of the show,
but come up a little too short. And thank goodness they've
used the cast from the TV show to lend their vocal talents.
The game is split into three very different styles of play.
As Stewie you must run around blasting everything in sight
and using your mind control, as Peter you have to beat up
anything that moves, and as Brian you have to sneak past police
officers. Only the Stewie missions provided any fun for more
than 2 seconds - but don't get carried away here, these sections
are still way below par for most games.
some of the gags are just as funny as the TV series, but to
be honest you'll soon find yourself putting down the controller
and reaching for a DVD box set.
of the fact this is on sale for under £20 it's just
not worth the money. Fun for about 20 minutes. It feels like
a mini-game to something much bigger. This is so not freakin'
