Review: Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse {vagary.tv}

"Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is exhibit A in everything that is wrong with licensed titles. The weak, uninspired gameplay, poorly designed levels, insipidly bad hit detection, and wooden animations combine to form Voltron: Defender of Horrible Game Development Strategy. But, sadly, as a gamer who’s seen far too many similar titles strike the market, I wasn’t surprised. Games like Family Guy don’t get their sales from their gameplay: they get them from the license." (Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse, PS3, Xbox 360) 1/5

They just can't make a family guy game that isn't a stinker. Maybe it's because they keep licensing it out to dopes and, as a cherry on top, the Family Guy universe isn't very strong as it subsists on gags.

Something like Futurama deserves games. Strong wide array of characters, lots of locations, varied activities for gameplay potential....

That's an interesting point. Maybe the property is fundamentally flawed with respect to sustaining gameplay.

All of the characters have devolved to a more simple form from their beginnings, too.

Evil genius -> Good gameplay material
Gay -> Uhhhhh....not really a specific for gameplay. Unless Seth is turning it into a homophobic thing, like he did in this game and on his show (when he isn't pretending to be a tolerant progressive).
