I give this game a 8/10 for the fun and entertanment!

As someone who watches Family Guy, I thought this game would be interesting and entertaining. Unfortunately, it is the opposite of what I had hoped.
The graphics are terrible...its like the game was developed by an animator who just graduating from Devry. It felt like it was made for the PS2. The sound in this game is also horrendous. For example, when trying to interact with a character and listen to the instructions they provide, the voices and noises in the background often overlap. If it were not for the captioning, one would have difficulty understanding the objective they are supposed to achieve.
Fans may appreciate some of the one liners found in various Family Guy shows, but they become repetitive and annoying. With a game like this, as a Family Guy fan I hoped newer material was created strictly for this game. The controls take some getting used to and the movement often feels jagged and rough. The layout of the game seems like a maze with little free reign. And I couldn’t count the many times I felt backed into a corner and zapping the characters charging me. Because of the controls, victory wasn’t mine at all.
Now to be fair, I didn't play past the fraternity level so I have no idea if the game improves at all, but all it took was playing that level to feel as if I was wasting my time; therefore I didn't finish the game and returned it to gamefly the next day.
Despite my opinion of the game, no doubt loyal fans of Family Guy may ride it through to its climax (giggity). And who knows, perhaps the game shall improve much more significantly than the amount that I briefly played and experienced. To me, it was as if they rushed to finish this game so they could release it before Christmas.
The best thing one can suggest is for one to rent it for themselves and come to their own conclusions. But if you're like me, renting a game that makes me feel like the time I invested into playing it was a complete and total waste truly grinds
