On the other hand, if you're like me, you won't want to finish the game. I'd rather play for hours on end, exploring the different worlds and laughing my butt off at all of the psycho humor. Don't miss this unique, surreal game; Panic! is a riot.
I’ll leave it for you to decide whether or not that’s a “good thing” for video games. A title like Myst or Panic! aren’t games in the traditional sense, because you’re not moving blocks or driving cars or causing explosions. Isn’t that a narrow definition? It’s true that most of you won’t be playing Panic! for weeks on straight, but it’s terrific for social gatherings, an evening here and there. This game, like so many others, deserves a larger audience.
Panic! is packed with enough Monty Python-like humor to keep your jaw resting on the floor for a long while. Panic! has to be played to be believed. The Sega CD is the perfect platform for this title and the execution is flawless. I applaud Data East for a far left-of-center, way out title that's well worth a look.
Fazit: "Panic!" ist ein Game, welches man mindestens einmal im Leben gezockt haben sollte, wenn man Monty Python mag oder behaupten möchte, schon alles im Leben gesehen zu haben.

With the real downfall of Sega CD games lately, it's nice to see originality with Panic. Although a real game is practically non-existent, you get some serious laughs out of the hilarious skits that occur. Unfortunately, the fun quickly wears away after you've seen these animations a few times. In other words, you can get bored with it way too quickly. Also, if you bought the Mega Mouse, now you can finally use it with a game.
There are funny moments, your male characters receiving breasts is a highlight, but after everything is said and done, this is not a game and it is not fun to play. It's hard to enjoy unless you have an extremely abstract sense of humor. And really, it's such a niche game, that I cannot recommend it to any casual gamer. Try it before you spend any amount of money on this novelty title.
Supposedly this game is for older audiences, but childish graphics and feeble humour make it more appropriate for kids with a lot of time on their hands. You won't be in a panic to finish this game.
The Video Game Critic
Most of the puzzles make absolutely no sense, so you're reduced to pressing the buttons at random, and the resulting animations are incredibly stupid. It's difficult to believe that this game is intended for "mature audiences", considering how infantile it is, often sinking to the level of toilet humor. I really can't say enough bad things about this one. It's astonishingly bad. I think I hate it.
