There isn't much of a grey area when it comes to Family Guy. You either love it, or you hate it. Granted, the same could be said for nearly every animated satire currently on the airwaves; but, one thing's for sure, Seth MacFarlane's controversial cartoon creations have effectively re-written the rule book for animated primetime television. Whilst its jokes occasionally go over the line, the show tries very hard to push the boundary of what's acceptable viewing in animated television. And I couldn't love it enough for that.
On paper, Back to the Multiverse sounds like the ideal treatment of a licensed game. Taking one of the show's most beloved episodes: "Road to the Multiverse", and translating it into game play, seems like a great idea. Having the game focus on Stewie and Brian, the show's irreplaceable pairing, also seems ripe with potential. Unfortunately, Back to the Multiverse never really goes beyond merely good. In fact, the game has too many of the problems that seem to hold many games based on animated properties back. It's not a bad game. It's certainly an improvement over the average 'Family Guy' game released on the previous generation of consoles, but the game still feels like a rushed effort.

In this game, a Bertram returns from a universe, in which Stewie never killed him in the show, comes into the Griffin family's universe and wants to eliminate Stewie. He builds a multiverse-travelling remote control, and goes through each multiverse to build an army that will help him destroy Stewie. When Stewie and Brian decide to go find Bertram and kill him, Bertram unleashes his army on them. It's up to Brian and Stewie to restore the balance of the Griffin universe. Oddly enough, the game's cut scenes don't utilise the famous cutaway gags that generally define the show.

I bought this game as I am a huge Family Guy fan and I have every single season on dvd. It's a really funny game to play a there are so many funny quotes from the tv show and also my fave song "Surfing Bird" from one of the episodes. I like everything about the game because the graphics are so good that it's like you are watching the actual show. The only dislike I have is the fact that the manual is not in English, which the seller failed to mention in description :(

I would definitely recommend this game though to all FG fans out there.

I'm quite new to gaming but I loved this game. The later levels were challenging and I doubt I would have been able to achieve them without the help of my partner (a pro gamer). My partner still found the levels challenging enough to have fun (even when playing alone).

I also enjoyed the extra games that weren't part of the storyline. On some of the extra games, it is possible to play against your friend (rather than as a team).

Only criticism would be that the storyline levels are a bit samey. Whilst each level is set in a different universe, the aim of each remains quite similar. Only some levels were completely unique.

Really poor game. Bought it thinking it would be great due to Family Guy being a favourite of mine, ended up very disappointed though. Repetitive, and just plain boring. I couldn't play it for more than 30 mins before I had to turn it off.

In general the game is excellent, great plot just like in the show. The graphics are very good. They look almost like the show does. The two bad points are:[1] the game is not that challenging so you can complete it in two days, possibly even one day and [2] you don't seem to be able to play online, its just mini games with friends. For the multiplayer trophies you can get them by yourself. The only part that is difficult is the mayhem game in multiplayer. I would recommend the game but think for the price it should be more challenging.

Wow what can I say about this game. Lets start with how surprised I was with this release, I thought it would be a rubbish, quickly put together game, that I would get just because I like the show so much. However the game did indeed deliver. It is not perfect, it does have some issues to it. The story is not all that good, the graphics could have been better, and the final issue, and the one that is most noticeable, is the fact that the game is too easy. However, in this game, the good totally out weighs the bad. The game play is fun and varied, and the new jokes are, as you would expect, very good. One of the aspects I enjoyed most in this was the recycled jokes from the show. I know many people would see this as a bad thing, however, I see it as a walk down nostalgia lane for me. As soon as I heard these jokes, I thought back to the episode that they originally can from, and I thought this was a very good thing for a family guy game to do. Though I will say, this game will only appeal to those who are fans of the show. If you are a true fan, I could not recommend this enough. If you are not a fan, or have not seen the show before, this game is not for you.

Update: I forgot to mention the other modes in the game. Challenge mode does live up to its expectations, and is fun to play. Though it uses the same maps as the campaign, the tasks are different, and some what challenging, as the mode's name suggests. Multi-player is also a lot of fun, but it has one catch, its only local, there is no on-line. But all in all, all of the modes in this game have there own streghths and weaknesses. And when the DLC for this game is released, I will review that in another update.

Update: I have downloaded the DLC that was recently released, and would like to say, it is perfectly worth the purchase for anyone that is enjoying the game. Playing through the game with the Griffin's gold suits is more satisfying then i originally thought.
