Like almost everyone else that played this game, I rented it thinking it was as good as the show, and ended up wasting my time playing what seemed to be a poorly designed game meant to frustrate a kindergartner. The storylines are the same for each character, which is too repetitive for my taste. Within playing 3 levels, I was bored and ready to turn it back in. To sum it up, this game is HORRIBLE!!!!! The makers of Family Guy should be ashamed that they let XBOX mutilate what should have been a good game.

This game reaks of bad design. The controls are repetitious and stingy and sometimes completely guessed at! The look is reminiscent of the stand up Simpson's game with it's characters sort of moving oblivious to their surroundings instead of being part of them. The mini games are Horribly contrived and you are often times thrust into them with no clear idea of how or even what you're supposed to be doing. I've lost most and won some only to stare at the screen with my "...OK... What was that" look on my face. Very very bad. BUT, for those of us who love Peter, Lois, Meg, Brian, Chris and Stewie this game... works. You will find it mostly amusing and usually funny if at times gross. The game has cut scenes (just like in the show) and once you glean the basics of each character the game becomes a sort of trial and error based stint. All and all I give this game high ratings for what it is (poorly made) but only because I am a Griffin at heart. Otherwise P U.
KINDA OK, REALLY GLAD I RENTED IT RATHER THAN SPENDING 30 BUCKS. BUT THE JOKES AND GAMEPLAY ARE REALLY WEAK. THIS SEEMS MORE LIKE SOMETHING YOU'D DOWNLOAD FOR 10 BUCKS THAN A FULL GAME. ANYWAY YOU'LL PROBABLY SEND IT BACK WITHIN 2 OR 3 DAYS. THE ANIMATION WAS FAIRLY WELL DONE.
