  • Clam and Quahog news have their own missions.
  • Chicken fight game.

Bobs Burgers:

  • Time can be fast forwarded by holding down ball launch button.
  • Full voice cast.
  • 1 New trophy.
  • Treasure hunt mini game where you have to navigate a factory before it falls down.
  • Trick or treat multiball.

American Dad:

  • Cop and Roger mode where you need to shoot all Roger targets.

Cons:

  • Catch phrases get old really fast due to repetition.
  • Only a hand full of new trophies.
  • No real variation in the Bobs Burger and Family guy tables. All missions are just basic go down this lane x amount of times.
  • Bobs Burgers and Family Guy tables are just a series of lanes with no real additional side missions.
  • All tables feel flat after a few hours play and fail to raise the excitement.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
