Just plain fun

Good sounds (though I feel they'd get old in home use)

Stewie pinball is kinda fun

Looks good, and well-lit


Feels like it doesn't have as many shots as a Lawlor game should

Upper flipper isn't terribly useful

I find the theme a bit obnoxious, but that's all personal preference

Oh the amount of VO on this machine is unreal. It's neverending one liners.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one, I actually caught myself giggling while playing the stewie pinball.

Fun game. Just not great. Price vs fun.

I'm surprised this is a Lawlor game. I'm a Pat Lawlor fanboy, I thought he could do no wrong...until I got some time on Family Guy. The game plays like an exercise in style over substance, showcasing the theme above any sort of meaningful gameplay experience. While the Stewie mini-pinball is a novel idea, but I think it cuts the game off at the knees: there is a lot going on beneath and around that area that is blocked from view making for a very frustrating experience. In sum, there are a couple of neat modes, clip-art FG artwork you've come to expect from FG branded merchandise and the overall Stern build-quality cheapness of the era...kind of a shame Lawlor has this one in his oeuvre.

The problem I have with this machine is in the balance: the left part of the pinball is kind of empty, where the right part is full, giving me that sense of unbalance in the playfield that somehow annoys me.

Other than that it's a very funny game with a very good ruleset.

Fun to play once in a while, not a game I could see myself owning... Definitely has that "funny" factor. The show is implemented well into the game/modes.

it's Family Guy, what's not to love?

the Stewie Pinball mini-pinball table complete with mini ball and flippers and ramps is pretty memorable and probably this machine's best feature. it has wonderful cartoon comedy in visuals, sounds and animated dots, but you do get a bit tired of those same old lines after a while.

still, it's a great looking game, a ton of fun to play, and highly recommended. and no, i'm selling mine, so don't ask.

Incredibly fun pin to play. I like humour in my pins, and FG certainly does not disappoint. It's crude in good old Family Guy standard. Not a good pin if you have young kids.....but a hoot to play with buddies over some beers. Would like to get back in my collection some day.

Had this one for 2 weeks and sold it again..

Most boring pin i ever owned... Beer can is standing in middle of the playfield which blocks most shots; game rules are boring to me...

Like the show it self, not too good.

Fast and flowing. Great call outs, they did an excellent job working with the audio for this game. The humor in the adult version is so Family Guy'ish which makes it really appealing to me.

This is a decent game, but you'd really have to like Family Guy to want to own it obviously. Can get a little boring and generic feeling in comparison to a number of other games (meaning it really doesn't innovate much, just kinda borrows from a lot of other games). Overall a solid game though.

Fun Game, hilarious voices that bring you back to to the show. Unique features especially with minature playfield. Great game that will play both the family guy and the shrek code well.

A fun, colorful, original game. The mini pinball is awesome! Not many long ramp shots, but there's a lot to shoot at and it kept me coming back for many games. I'd love to own this own some day.

Some of the best call outs I've ever heard.

This is as close to perfect for a modern pinball as you can get for me. It's an easy play that has great graphics....Stewie's machine is a great feature.

The upper game on the right was boring. Overall, this is a an okay pin.

Played this one (a really good condition one) at a bar for about two hours. It's a decent game; one that I would drop more quarters into. However, it didn't grab me. Unlike others will surely say, I didn't find the callouts to be that funny... I think FG humor is typically too over the top and once you expect "over the top" all the time, it loses its edge. The humor is more crass than clever I think.

However, the mini pinball upper playfield is cool and sorta fun.

I finally had a chance to play a nice one. It's a fun game with funny call outs. Cool theme and a nice looking pin.
