Family Guy: Uncensored Review

PROS

  • Some fun items and character integration from the show.
  • Players are able to use their iPod during gameplay.
  • Easy to use controls for each mini-game.

CONS

  • No voice acting at all.
  • Nothing offensive enough to warrant the ‘Uncensored’ label; it’s a marketing ploy only.
  • The mini-games are more frustrating than they are fun.

VERDICT

Even if you are an absolute die-hard fan of the show, Family Guy: Uncensored will ultimately disappoint you; just like the time I scuba dived with Christopher Walken and a Spanish matador. This game is not worth the current price.

Family Guy: Uncensored is the latest in the line of Family Guy merchandise now available for the iPhone. Players will progress through a story mode, controlling a number of characters from the TV show and playing through different mini-games. Once completed, each mini-game can be accessed through the main menu to be played again.

The controls for each mini-game differ but you are given clear instructions on how to play before each game. Some games require tapping on the screen, while others require tilting the iPhone. Each game features one or more of your favourite characters and various scenarios from the show itself; such as the ‘Peter versus the chicken’ rivalry.

Like the show, the visuals are 2D and feature a number of different items and characters from the series. The sound is moderate but unfortunately doesn’t feature any voice acting at all, just dialog boxes for players to read. On the positive side, players are free to use their iPod during gameplay. The game is single player only and players can access separate mini-games that they unlock during the main story mode.

Family Guy: Uncensored is, unfortunately, a rather disappointing game. The game’s story is quite poor and the mini-games seem more focused on the amount of show items and characters in the background than fun gameplay. Ultimately, the game is a prime example of style over substance and is more of a cash-in of the franchise than anything else.
