As part of its commitment to make "freakin' sweet" games based on the resurgent animated series Family Guy, 2K Games today announced the voice cast of the cel-shaded adventure game. Fortunately for fans of the controversial TV show, they're pretty much the same actors which play the dysfunctional New England clan on the show.

I'm not gonna hold my breath either, but the videos I've seen on the game make it look like it will do the show justice. All I really care about is how loyal the game will be to the series, which is arguably the funniest cartoon EVER created (sorry Simpsons, you've lost the crown). It's gonna be like we're playing out an episode from the show at home! How "FREAKIN' SWEET" is that? All I gotta say about that is "OLL' RIGHT!!!"
I'm not holding my breath on this one. It just seems to me that games ported from movies or TV shows lack in substance. I'm personally hoping that I'm wrong this time around.
I got Simpsons Hit and Run for the GC and I loved it. And august_king, Futurama never came out in North America, but it's a shame the show died.
It will suck, but I'll still buy it, I've loved Family Guy since it first aired after the '99 super bowl.... unlike many of the bandwagon jumpers.
Yeah I freakin' love Family Guy, but the idea of doesn't sit well with me. I really hope it is great, but I have a feeling it's going to suck. Unless it's designed by Peter's cousin, Shigeru Miyamoto Griffin.
While the idea may be freakin' sweet, I'm not t confident the execution will be anywhere near as freakin'.
I will predict that this game will have 5-minute long unskippable cutscenes focusing on a single bad joke.
Yes! This game will be awesome! Really though, what if this game becomes the first good game based on a TV show?
Family Guy can only bow down to The Simpsons. Yes the series is in it's golden years and the humor is less than stellar but for a good ten years they were the funniest thing on TV. Family Guy's humor is contrived and feels tacked on at the last minute. FYI more than a few of the show's first episodes were scraped ideas for Simpsons plots. Don't get me wrong it is sort of funny at times but it can't match the wit and character of say a season five Simpsons episode. You never feel any sympathy for the show's cast like you would with a good Simpson's episode. I could care less if Stewie fell into the pit of hell, but I feel something when Bart shoplifts a videogame.
kamicolo, there's a big difference: Family Guy is a decent show (i dont watch it - forced humor) , whereas Simpsons is the greatest cartoon of all time (eariler seasons with clever humor).
kamicolo, there's a big difference: Family Guy is a decent show, whereas Simpsons is not. You will all bow down before this game!
I want to play it at least, but do anyone remember the Simpsons various games. Hit & Run was a good one, but how about the rest. huh huh??
It seems today. That all you see. Is Gamers playing video games and pressing buttons all day But where are those Old School Video Games, Which is use to rely. Lucky there's a Family Guy, Lucky theres a Family Guy
This game is going to be terrible, but i will rent it because I have not had any Family Guy in so long.
family guy is awesome and orginal voice work is cool no doubt but i don't how the game will come out. i wonder???
gignator "does it include death,among other season 1-4 characters?" If it does include Death it better be Norm Mcdonald's Death. He was actually funny unlike the other hack that took over.
Heh, I don't think family guy was every made for the "public". Lets push it up to an R rated game, and up stewie's ... everything ;).
