Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is Third-Person Shooter based on Fox Broadcasting Company's irreverent animated television show, "Family Guy." The game features Stewie Griffin the show's evil baby genius, and his foil, Brian, the Griffin family dog. The plot follows a reoccurring episodic theme from the show - the Multiverse, a virtually endless number of parallel universes, which can be visited using a remote. The game features fan favorite characters from the show, as well as 2-player co-op, and local 4-player multiplayer support.

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.Read more ›
I would definitely recommend this game though to all FG fans out there.
must warn u it contains a couple of words u may not want children hearing as i found out wen my young son walked in
not as gud game play as say cod but still loads of fun and a gud laugh would recommend for the price
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.
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.
