Family Guy Online

Family Guy Online, a free to play browser based MMORPG, is the latest in what is becoming a long line of games that are based on TV series. With pre-built base of fans to draw from, these games know that they will have an audience that is at least a little inquisitive about the nature of a game based upon their favorite TV shows. In the gaming industry it is usually a running joke that games based on running titles, whether they be TV shows, Movies, or some other existing franchise are usually very poorly done. Mostly because the developer has paid a handsome price for the rights to build a game based on that title and have access to the existing fanbase, with that price paid for the licensing, the game usually flops due to the lack of remaining cash for development. Lately though with the rise of free to play and the revenue model changing in the gaming space, we are starting to see more and more of these games being worth a gamers eyeballs as the owner, in this case Fox, stays tied in with the franchise to reap the rewards from what has become a very lucrative market. Keep reading and find out if Family Guy follows the trend of successful franchises that have made their way to the free to play gaming space.

Getting Started

Making the dive into a fantasy world based in the tiny town of Quahog, RI is not only simple, but also massively entertaining. Your character will be built around a basic build that follows one of the main characters of the show, Stewie, Peter, Lois, or Meg/Chris, Brian is locked at this time. Each of these characters have specific skills and attributes that are very nicely tied into their TV personas.

Once you have selected a character type, you will then have the ability to customize your character to your liking, changing out things like hair, face, lips, shoes, hats, etc. The customization system is very expansive and really makes for creating your own unique character in the game. At first when we logged in there were not many players running around, but after a short period of time we began to see quite an influx of gamers logging into the starting area. It was fun to see the different types of characters that people created and this really showcased the customization system that the game has available.

Gameplay

Once your a logged into the game, you will get some basic instructions from Major West. Your first task will be to talk to Stewie and get your first actual quest. Questing in the game is very simple and the minimap will lead you around to all the places you need to go. Using an arrow on the map to direct you to the task currently at hand. Your starting quests will also get you acclimated to the various game mechanics.

Soon you will notice that as you are running around and completely various quests that you are getting cut scenes that tie into the quests you are completing, something that is not only entertaining, but a great break from the usual stuff you see, as these cut scenes are like watching small clips from the TV show. Providing the same high level of entertainment and humor that the show provides.

After running around for a bit you will notice that the game has a fun little achievement system that players can use to gauge their progress in certain events. The first few achievements come with ease, but there are later achievements that will take some major effort.

Graphics, Sounds, and UI

Graphically the game really gives the player the feel that they are in the TV show. Every last little detail from the show was paid close attention to and replicated in the game. Players of course are not going to play a game like Family Guy Online for realistic game graphics, which is why the games graphics excel. Having a graphical style that matches the TV show is exactly what should be expected and the game certainly delivers.

Voice acting is at the core of the sounds for the game. While the music is also well done, the voice acting not only during quests or at random times during your adventures in Quahog, but also during the cut scenes that were created just for the game is excellent. It is small touches like this that make a game like Family Guy Online please players who are true fans of the franchise.

The games UI is simple and easy to use. Nothing out of the ordinary from other MMOs and even more streamlined as the game really doesn’t need a lot of the normal UI pieces that many other games require.

The Final Word

Overall Family Guy Online is one of those games that is there to give players a humorous and entertaining option in their video game experiences. In the short period of time that we played the game it was great to see building and scenes from specific episodes of the TV show and the additional cut scenes were a very nice touch that any fan will enjoy. Game play may be a bit simplistic for some gamers, and there is not a ton of combat, and no PvP. Though these things may turn some players off, those gamers who are looking for a third person joy ride through the TV World they have come to love over the past 10+ years will enjoy what Family Guy Online has to offer.

    [..YouTube..] I am so busy, I too can not play more than one or two games at a time. Yesterday I started playing Diablo 3, I have been playing Allods quite a bit lately as well. Usually when I find games I like I move them to a folder that is a keep folder so I do not delete them off my hard drive. There are several that I go back to quite frequently, RoM and World of Tanks being on that list as well.
