I thought that this game would be child's play and I would beat it in less than a day, but to my surprise it was actually quite difficult at some levels, I loved the story plot with each character, and became a little disappointed when I didn't get to be Lois or Meg.

Great game if you love the show. Although I was expecting new jokes instead of ones taken from the old shows, I was still impressed. Great game play to entertain anyone for quite a few hours. Every so often the game switches characters and genre (sneaking, 3rd person shooter, side-scrolling fighter) to keep you interested. Will definitely buy this game even though I already finished it!
While "Family Guy--Video Game" seems to work hard on satisfying devout fans of the show,it sometimes lacks technically. For those of you who have mastered the flawed analog stick, manuevering selected characters should be no problem (esp. while trying to jump to where you're supposed to be). I, on the other hand, had a hard time in some levels trying to gauge distances in the 3-D world. That aside, gameplay IS fun, and some of the situations are hilarious. Sound bytes from characters (original voice actors for the show), can sometimes be stepped on because other charcters need to let you know where to go next. Overall though, the game is mindless, addictive fun with laugh-out-loud surprises. Note: Make sure you select "continue" when re-starting your saved game from the main menu. "New Game" is always highlighted when re-starting, and if you hit that without thinking all progress will be over-written. Giggidy-Giggidy!
