Now the way I look at it, there are two types of people that are likely to go out and buy Family Guy: Back To The Multiverse; Diehard fans of the series, and mums that are stuck for something to buy their teenage son for Christmas, but is there more to the game than that?
Some of you may be wondering what exactly I’m blabbering on about. Multiverse, Multiverse remote? What? In case you're not a sci-fi buff - the Multiverse remote allows the user to travel to parallel universes – same place, same time, but something in history has been altered and has caused the present time to be completely different.
You jump straight into the shoes of Stewie (or the paws of Brian, whichever you decide) and make chase after Bertram through the Multiverse – each different universe acting as a level in the game. Your weapons range from a laser gun to a sniper rifle, a flamethrower to a pistol - some of which can only be used by Brian, and some by Stewie. This adds a ‘character-swap’ option while playing. If you’re playing as Stewie, and you switch out to a shotgun, Brian will jump in and take over.
Now I’ve just said a bunch about your ‘enemies’, and I never actually explained who they are, did I? Well as I mentioned earlier, Bertram is trying to recruit an army, and in each universe he seems to be succeeding. Your foes vary from Amish guys that need Bertram’s ‘instant tree growing seeds’ to handicapped guys lead by Joe Swanson.
And there we go! The entire point of the Family Guy series is to make its viewers laugh, and Back to the Multiverse definitely isn’t lacking in the humour department. There have been a few occasions during gameplay where I’ve found myself having to hit the start button to pause the game while I laughed hysterically to myself for a minute or so. Don’t get me wrong though, not everything about the dialogue is funny.
