This game was okay. For the price there are many better options out there. There did not seem like a lot of depth to the play.

I was playing and old beat up machine in a dive bar, maybe my experience would be better on a better machine.

Personally, I cannot see why this machine does not receive higher ratings. At least around this part of the woods, Family Guy and BSD are kings!!!

This game is a total blast. I personally think people who are fans of the show will enjoy the game the most, but everyone should give it a play at least once. This pin gets it right in so many ways.

This is the game that keeps drawing me back. Not a huge FG TV Show fan but the pin currently gets the most play in my collection of 64 machines. Love the humor, love the call outs, mini playfield is a gas.

Family Guy is an all around great pin with fast layout and most notably the mini Stewie pinball playfield. The game was designed the one of the pinball legends Pat Lawlor. He made the table to be simple and easy to play. The layout is fairly straightforward once you see how the ball travels around and underneath the mini playfield. A mini flipper on the left can direct shots back to the upper playfield. Pat worked hard on appropriately scaling the mini playfield and plays nearly flawless. Sometimes the ball will pop off the flipper because of its size and lead to a drain. It takes a little finesse to get the hang of it.

All the main characters are present on the playfield two of which are semi animated. The Stewie character rotates to face his little pinball machine, while the Meg character bobs up and down. The music and sound are top notch. There are tons of random one liners and hilarious double entendres throughout. The edgy humor extends to the modes and multiball which are taken out of episodes of Family Guy show. Hitting a drop targets will trigger a fart sound and a reaction from Peter’s reaction. All are modes very challenging including the final (and hiddent) wizard mode - “Sperm Multiball”. Family Guy is full of laughs and challenging pinball. One of my favorite titles from Stern.

Thanks,

Mike

I need to get one of these. The Stewie playfield is so unique and awesome. I love the speech too...although not for young kids. I would love to have it next to my TSPP!

Its a pretty fun game, but not sure if I could/would own it. I feel like the layout of the playfield just really slows the game down. As much as I like Stewie Pinball, I also dislike it at the same time. The ball in the mini-playfield is way too light and on the several tables I've played, it seems as if the flippers are never strong enough to get the ball up the LOIS ramp.

I love family guy. I love this pinball machine. It is A BLAST to play with others! I would have to say the sounds/speech are what make this game nearly perfect in my opinion!!! Friends love to play this game and then talk about how fun and humorous it is days later. A lot of people talk about the mini pinball as a negative, absolutely not - it is the best part! I should also say I'm a huge fan of the show and that this is my favorite pinball machine.

I think Family Guy is a very fun pinball machine due to the fast that it has a great rule set, funny quotes, and a mini playfield. I like the mini playfield out of all of it the music is great on this game there is nothing wrong with family guy this game should be in my collection

Another very funny pin. Possibly the funniest. Scores and scores of great quotes. One of my faves.

That small playfield ruins this pinball for me. The balls on the small playfield feel and look so cheap when bouncing around. The small playfield literally looks and plays like a 5 dollar hand held plastic pinball game. The rest of the machine plays pretty good.

I am a fan of Family Guy and they missed a lot of the funniest parts of the show on the playfield. They included too much "toilet humor". Family guy isn't as much "toilet humor" as this pinball machine would lead you to believe. I really don't want to hear farts when I am playing pinball... Do I need to say more?

Great game, may be more "adult friendly" rather than a kids pin. Great artwork and layout. This pin came out in the early seasons of the show, I wished it had more of the characters like joe, Cleveland etc. Still a great pin

This game is not hard to play, and very funny.

Animation is very cool if you like family guy, buy this game.

Another very entertaining pin at first, however, it started to wear on me after a while and I sold it - even though I do enjoy the show. The voices, sayings, and TV modes are very amusing. The mini playfield is a neat/original toy but it started to get old for me after a while and it really slows down the speed of the game. In addition, I'm not a big fan of the playfield layout. In particular I don't care for the beer can in the middle of the playfield that tends to disrupt the flow of the game. In all, I believe it is very entertaining for random play but not a great pin to own. There are much better pins with more complex rules, challenging, and better flow.

Pat Lawlor is an all time PINBALL DESIGN GENIUS! In spite of trying to distance himself from the FAMILY GUY theme he has still managed to deliver some unique elements in an era where 'something different' is increasingly challenging to find. As a FG fan this game gets a head start with me, but the STEWIE PINBALL mini pin is so simple but so unique it will appeal to most. Controlling a miniature pinball machine featuring a mini ball with the normal full size flippers & cabinet is bizarre...but most importantly - STACKS OF FUN! Featuring more audio grabs than any other game ever is a huge asset given how friekn funny FG is. FAMILY GUY is my favourite STERN to date!
