Game Over Online (Sep 23, 2002)
Overall, Farscape isn’t a very good game. It doesn’t look good, and it’s not balanced, but it’s short and easy and has the Farscape characters in it, so there are worse ways to spend your time. Just avoid the game until the price drops.

Farscape: The Game is a must-have for hardcore fans of the show (both of them). But for anyone else, it’ll just be a very boring extra-long episode of that something-or-other show that comes on between Star Trek and John Edward.

Verfrellt und zugenäht, schon wieder eine verpatzte TV/Film-Umsetzung. So schwierig kann es doch nicht sein, sollte man meinen, besonders bei der sehr ergiebigen Vorlage. Wer auf Spielspaß und Qualität wie bei dem ebenfalls aus dem Hause Simon Schuster stammenden DS9 - The Fallen hofft, wird enttäuscht.

Farscape is a mediocre game. It's certainly not the worst I've played, but neither does it have the spark that draws gamers in. Folks who love Farscape the TV show may like it, as well as team strategy gamers who can't live without every game in the genre. Everyone else, however, may find the game is best left unplayed.

Farscape: The Game clearly falls into the trap of "fun franchise, mediocre game." There is much they could have done to make this a fun adventure game, but alas, the franchise remains one to encounter on the television instead of on the computer.
Given the quality of the television series and the intense loyalty of its fan base, it's sad that Farscape: The Game misfires on pretty much all cylinders. While the excellent vocal effects give you a small taste of the interpersonal relationships involved, the overall character development ends up being weak and not likely to sustain interest. The combat boils down to arcade-reflex action, and is devoid of the kind of squad management skills expected in this kind of title. For those who have never seen the series and play this release, they may wonder what all the hullabaloo is about; and for those who are devoted followers of the series, they will disavow that this represents the engrossing universe and storyline to which they have become so addicted. In the end, this is a far, far cry from what this creative television epic deserved.

Es tröstet mich wenig, dass die Blödheit meiner Spielfiguren von der Anleitung als beabsichtigtes Design-Feature gepriesen wird. Hektisch muss ich jede der galaktischen Torfnasen einzeln zu gezielten Angriffen überreden. In einigen Dialogen blitzt der Farscape-Humor trotz schlapper Story etwas auf. Doch Leveldesign und hakelige Steuerung legen eine Entsorgung in der nächsten Druckkammer nahe.
GameSpot (Sep 10, 2002)
Farscape really doesn't do justice to the original TV show, which is disappointing, since the developer clearly had some idea of what the show is about. The game gets a lot of mileage out of the fact that Rygel hates being sent into small spaces because of his size. The game even shows the basics of how Crichton interacts with his alien friends. The snippets of dialogue (gamely recorded by the actual cast) provide an inkling of Farscape's main appeal, namely the interaction among the characters. But the game, and its slavish emphasis on shooting stuff, serves as a horrible showcase for any sort of character interaction.
A crappy combat game that’s based on a cancelled TV show. Pretty irresistible, huh?
