Peter - Punching and Kicking and Spinning
The game itself is fairly easy to pick up and play Stewie and Peter both have an upgrade system which will make that character stronger. Ever so Often in between Levels there would be a mini game they called a cut up game where you basically press a button as it flashes or button mash two buttons back and forth. Most of the time it will pop up abruptly and you have to adjust yourself pretty fast even though there very easy. At one point in a Cut out it was really bad I think they were trying to fool the consumer into thinking they were funny but I do believe they were serious when one of the Cut out Mini Games said "Sorry we kinda ran out of Money so just press a button to win the Mini Game" and that is all you have to do Press a Button any button. There was also a Marco Polo Mini game with Stewie where you swim around and when you press the X button it says "Marco" there is a Woman in the pool who is supposed to be looking for you, but she simply stands there. Now I know they were replicating the same scene from the TV show but I didn't pay for this game so I could play a mini game where I sit in a pool for 5 seconds and win.
Like I said above Stewie is always a Shooting platforming type of game I could see his as being the most fun but Peters gameplay could also be considered fun as it reminds me of Streets of Rage or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles where it is a side scrolling and once you have defeated all the enemies on the Screen more come out or it says "Move On" this is the exact same thing except 3D and with a Whole lot of a fatter character. Brain I felt was the Worst Character to play with having to sneak around like Solid Snake collecting objects weather it be tickets or files or notes. It just wasn't any fun. The good thing about this is that if you passed a room it would auto-save and start you off the the room you just passed.
Overall this game had too many Shortfalls for it to be anything more than a rental if even that. I'm not being harsh this game is not very fun at all. If you have been on Gametrailers.com and seen the Angry Videogame Nerd this is one of the games that he would be playing. If you don't know who the Angry Video Game Nerd is you will have to find out on Gametrailers.com. If you feel you really need to try this game RENT IT FIRST!!!
