So, in what was completely unexpected... this game was actually good. Even a bit more than good.
First and most important, this game feels exactly like the show. Something most licensed games are terrible at. But from start to finish, this game hits the mark, and that means a lot.
The story is short, but their are collectables and it certainly need to be longer.
Co-Op is great, but it gets crazy difficult. Luckily, there's infinite lives.
This is a arcade game, the classic kind. It's a great experience. No online co-op. No complaining! Not enough games provide a good local multiplayer.
The actual multiplayer is pretty cool too. Reminds me of that N64 era of multiplayer. Good stuff.
So, the game's a bit nostalgic. And you probably have to obviously be a fan of the show to appreciate a lot of the nuances of the game.
Graphic wise, it's probably what you'd expect, but it gets the job done pretty well. Some of the outlines are bit too thick, and it may not always look super smooth. But it's good enough.
The fact is, the game wasn't supposed to be good and it was. Don't pass it up just to write it off as another failed licensed game, because I assure you, that it is not.
Note: GameFly it for sure, it's a perfect rental. Buy it? Maybe not...

Can you give anything less than a one? This game is utter c.r.a.p. The graphics are terrible. The game play is terrible. Even the cut scenes, which were clips from actual Family Guy footage, look terrible. I was hoping for a better looking game than the last one, I was sorely disappointed. Seth McFarlane is rolling in his grave.
