Played this over the weekend and for the most part I enjoyed it being a Family Guy fan and all. I didn't go into this expecting a goty experience but it was fun. If you enjoy the lego games you'll probably enjoy this as well.
My only real complaint is that the last achievement which is for unlocking all the other achievements glitched on me along with many other people. So if you like playing for achievements like me I would recommend looking up said achievement for tips on how to avoid the glitch.
I got through the 1st couple of levels and was only slightly impressed. The AI was predictable, the level design too simple, and although the cheesy animation was done with the purpose of having the Family Guy look... nobody blinks, very bad animation flaw.
Also there is no difficulty setting and head-shots are extremely easy as the head is one third of the body in the Family Guy realm, this game won't take very long to beat completely.
When my wife joined me the experience got better. Lets face it having a partner to look out for adds a level of strategy. Just having that extra person made the game not a chore.
The death match and other variants are a joke because its only local. The maps are just sad with only 2 players, and 4 player is 4 people screen peeking... yay (scowl)...
The challenges are again boring alone, from wave survival to elimination... very basic modes.
Then again when you have 4 players working together to take on wave after wave of space chickens and evil amish you have the perfect party game.
That's the redeeming quality of this game is its a great party game. BUT' its one of like 6 shooters to have 4 player co-op, not much competition.
So if you are the solo gamer playing games locked in your bedroom this game isnt for you. But if you have four controllers and friends who are sick of 4 player FIFA, then this game is for you. recommended for the party animal with strange friends lol enjoy
