CGRundertow FAMILY GUY: BACK TO THE MULTIVERSE for Xbox 360 Video Game Review


Russ here. Something may be amish. But here
is my review of Family Guy Back To The Multiverse. Join Brain and
Stewie as they head into alternate worlds. With Stewie’s evil rival
trying to destroy their world, Brain and Stewie are off to save the
day. First off one of the best things about this
game, is just all the little references to the show. The storyline
is very funny, and while it might not be the best materiel, its still
Family Guy, and any real fan will love the story, the jokes, the little
hidden references, this is a game for the fans and it shows. Gameplay is a mix of 3rd person shooting,
and very very light platforming. Puzzles are in the game, but
very limited and pretty easy ones. It’s similar to a slightly dumbed down
version of Ratchet and Clank in a way. There’s tons of guns, Stewie has ray guns
and some awesome sci-fi stuff to use. Brain gets normalish guns. With
such well designed weapons, and a good variety of them to use,
Back to the Multiverse never gets dull. You can switch between B
RI and Stew wa anytime you want, there’s also drop in and drop out coop. And I have to say it’s incredibly fun, one
of the best coop times I’ve ever had had. However coop and the multiplayer
modes, are gasp. Only offline never online, that’s right the multiplayer
in the game is local only. This was a big shame to me, the one time I
was very excited to play online. I was like yay family guy online.
Awww no online for me. However the campaign is very very funny, and
plays quite well. My expectations for back to the multiverse was
simply, I know I will laugh and it will be funny, But i did not
expect to love the gameplay as much as I do. The shooting and weapons were a blast to use,
the game looks really good and captures the vibe of the show quite
well. And with bonus objectives, challenge modes, and tons of unlockables,
for fans of the show they will get a lot out of the 6
hour campaign. Its not a perfect game, i’m sure non fans
won’t find anything special here, but to family guy fans, this game is
just freakin sweet! This is a true fan service, and is more than
I could dream of. The game is really really easy, but its also just
such a fun guilty pleasure. The humor is fantastic and just
laugh out loud funny all the time. The gameplay is so outrageous and just pure
fun, this game is just a pure delight to play. The level design is
such a wonderful tribute to the show, the little Easter eggs shows what
love went into this game. Its obscene its random its Family Guy, now
shut up Meg, and play this funny game.

    Thank God Family Guy is falling into obscurity. Hopefully, by this time two years from now Seth is begging for a new show. I regret ever supporting him through Adult Swim.

    Playing this game on gamepad is pain in the ass. but it's been relased to PC (oposse to simpsons game) so you can use keyboard and mouse.

    regardless of what you think (which i couldnt give a rats ass) any series can be considered as "overstaying its welcome" after hitting double digits in season #, i just used simpsons as a prime example since its been on for ages. also im not doing any such "dick waving contest" i would have to whip mine out to do so, all you have to do is show yourself, because thats what you're acting like atm. so in the words of many ppl before me "go fuck yourself!"

    Reply
  • WHATISUTUBE

    I attacked on the Simpsons front because you're assuming I give a damn about that shit series. But point taken; my argument still stands: FG has overstayed its welcome and you just admitted it. I don't give a damn about any other series because we aren't talking about anything BUT Family Guy here. Which you AGREE has overstayed its welcome. Thanks you for at least admitting that. In the words of the billions outside of the FG fanbase: ''he seriously likes Family Guy?!?''

    btw love how you erased the message you sent me about shoving a rats ass down my throat, you're obviously one of those youtubers that if ppl dont agree with you, you start something, erase the evidence that you provoked them, and then pin them with a harassment charge to YT in an attempt to get them banned.
    though im sure YT will have that message on record so by all means screencap away, you'll just end up being the one that gets banned since you provoked me into a verbal beatdown.

    in any case im ending this conversation, but before i go i have more thing to say. if everyone whoever ran their mouth got banned from youtube there'd be no-one left, long as im not promoting hate or sexually harassing you i doubt i'll hear from youtube at all. otherwise how in the hell are you still here? ๐Ÿ˜›

    actually, it was a typo so I retyped it. The message is still there, btw. I said Im screencapping it to show others, not youtube. To show others how retarded the FG fanbase is. Thanks for it, though. Anyway, *IM* ending this conversation now. goodbye.

    Sounds like a fanboy review tbh :/ Sortta disappointed. Many times you brought up "easter eggs" and "refrences to the show", but that's quite shallow for review, especially when not given any examples.

    I agree that Family Guy is better than American Dad but you can't say "you're wrong". At some points it comes to opinion and in this situation there's no right or wrong.

    I enjoyed the first few seasons that were around before the revival. Then it went to hell with the new writers. The characters became exaggerated, as did the humor to a point where it was trying too hard. LOL FUG U MEG U SUX XD. LOL PETURD IS SO DUM XD. LOL FUCK REPUBLICANS XD. Ugh. Brian became a fucking shoebox for Seth for him to spout his liberal view points. Seth, I don't give a fuck what you think, so please.

    Reply
  • The Gaming Paladin

    i disagree imo, in fact for me its the complete opposite. i think its really a "to each to his own issue" anymore, hence why i havent spoken anymore on the matter. my initial response was really out of shock that someone complained about a show thats been on 8 seasons when there are other shows that have surpassed that mark, two of them in fact that cross my mind: simpsons and south park, that have doubled that in season length… in any case this is my last response on the issue, moving on…

    THe difference of simpsons and family guy is family guy never stopped being funny or sold out,simpsons was good but they ruined their image with saying star wars is shit,which is funny seeing as they are crap,RIP old simpsons,and fuck matt greoning and all the new writers.

    Reply
  • Dennis Bowen

    Yes family guy is not AS strong as it use to be. But the star wars episodes and even the brian and stewie episodes are good…just the overuse of the cutaway gag (not as overused now) was killing them. Its not as strong as 06-08 but it is at least it has more watchable episodes then Simpsons do.

    This game was definatly worth the 5 dollars for the multiplayer alone. The multiplayer is like COD but than you can chance youre weapen whenever you want, you have different characters. Knife isnt to op and all of the weapens are really diffrent like tou have an normal gun rocket launcher and even bats
