Family Guy - hands-on

Adaptation of popular TV show blows our minds by not being crap

We also got a chance to play as Peter, who's been hit on the head pretty severely - hence the hospital stay. Somehow, this convinces him that Mr. Belvedere (yeah, the one from the '80s TV show) is bent on world domination. Thwarting him apparently involves kicking the ass of absolutely everybody, and so Peter goes on an indiscriminate rampage through the town of Quahog. The actual gameplay is no-frills, button-mashy brawling, but the cruel fun of flooring old ladies with one punch and kicking little kids in the face was irresistible.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
