Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse has the ingredients for a great game. It is based on one of the most popular episodes of the Family Guy TV series, it lets players play as two of the most well-known characters, and the comedic style is mostly just as witty as the TV show. If it were an episode of the show, it would be very well received, but as a video game it is uninspired. The graphics are nowhere near as polished and well-rendered as they should be, and the gameplay alternates between either uninspiring or repetitive. Even worse, the controls are usually finicky at best, turning what should be an entertaining romp through one of the highest-rated cartoon franchises into a frustrating ordeal. The saving grace is the game's cooperative multiplayer mode, mainly because when playing with other players, the focus is less on completing the missions and more on having fun. The game also scores points for representing the Family Guy franchise faithfully. If there had just been a few more months to iron out the kinks, make the graphics look better, and ensure the controls worked 100% flawlessly, this would have potentially been a different game. As it is, it simply falls flat.
