Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse - Xbox 360

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.

In this unique third-person shooter, players are tasked with saving Quahog from utter annihilation. Stewie and Brian team up in an original Multiverse-spanning adventure to stop Stewie's evil half-brother Bertram from destroying Quahog and everything else.

Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is a third-person shooter. In the campaign you'll be playing as Stewie and Brian who each have their own specific weapon set, as does every playable character in the game. More on that later. The variety of weapons and special items allow for multiple play styles throughout various types of encounters. Wanna snipe enemies from a distance? Brian is the dog for you. Wanna get in close and torch baddies with a flame thrower? Stewie is your baby. Prefer to call in some assistance/assistants and let them do some of the work for you? Send in the machine gun-toting Joe Swanson, or have the Giant Chicken bludgeon your enemies with his feather-fists while an old rock-'n-roll song plays. Toss an Ipecac or a dirty diaper and then watch as your enemies vomit uncontrollably, unable to defend themselves against your weaponry.
Brain and Stewie protagonize across the multiverse attempting to foil Bertram's antagonistic efforts. There are plenty of jokes along the way, delivered in that self-aware Family Guy style. The campaign will take you to a variety of locales aka universes each with its own unique setting, enemies, and challenges. Crossbow-wielding Amish farmers, suicide-bombing elves, and handicapped people with machine gun crutches await you. There are a few platforming challenges (jumping from one place to another) to be had along the way, but the camera, controls, and physics work well enough that these can be traversed handily. Again, if you like the show, and you like story based action/adventure games, you'll dig it.
I played the Xbox360 version and I gotta say the game looks like the show. The characters look and move like they do on the show, although in the game they're more likely to be holding an improvised weapon.
All the voice actors are present to represent their characters, and the humor. If during the campaign you encounter a non-hostile, recognizable character it is worth it to approach them and hear what they have to say. Meg is pathetic, Peter is stupidly funny, and Mayor Adam West is bizarrely insane. Also, pausing the game will cause the Family Guy theme-song to play in differing styles. You might hear a medieval instrumental, or an 80's style rap, or something else.
This is a bummer but it's split screen local only. To reiterate, no online capabilities. Moving on, there's campaign coop, challenge mode, and versus. Campaign was largely covered previously. Challenge mode is exactly what it sounds like. There's a circumstance, a difficulty selection, a character choice, and a time limit. You can pervishly photograph sorority girls as Quagmire, or defend your sailing vessel against the onslaught of pirate Peter Griffin's minions,or try another scenario.The versus modes are Deathmatch (shoot the other guy), Infiltration (capture checkpoints), Capture the Greased-up Deaf Guy (capture the flag, except it runs away and speaks with a deaf accent), and Multiverse Madness (defend against waves of increasingly-difficult enemies).
It was a fun list to do, and nothing too crazily difficult. I think my time to complete to 100% was probably around 20 hours, and it was a fun time. Nothing too grindy.
