Differences between the Movie and Game
Fans of the movie and players of the game have noticed several differences between the movie and in the game:
- Speckles returns and admits that he has escaped from the garbage truck when he reveals to be the "real" mastermind of Clusterstorm in the movie, though he returns to help the team on their mission before he admits to be behind the plan in the game.
- Saber's secret partner "Yanshu" (who is really Speckles) does not talk to Darwin at all in the movie. It is also interesting to note that there is not much difference with the voice in the game.
- In the movie, Darwin convinces Speckles to stop the madness and Darwin uses the computer virus on his PDA to take it down, but in the game, Mooch goes inside the giant walking being and destroys it himself.
- Speckles fate in the end of the movie is to end Clusterstorm and to help Saber remove all the chips on the appliances, however in the end of the game, G-Force celebrates their accomplished mission and Speckles pops out alive, still wanting revenge.
- Nicolas Cage, Tracy Morgan and Penélope Cruz do not reprise their voice roles from the movie. Also, Bucky, Marcie, Kip, and the mice do not make an appearance in the game.
G-Force received mixed reviews, with a Metacritic average of 68% (based on 33 reviews).
Some liked the game's 3D mode. GamesMaster magazine in the UK said: "Don't underestimate the wow factor of the 3D mode - if this is the future of games, sign us up." They gave it 77%. IT Reviews, on the other hand, said "The 3D glasses bundled in are a gimmick at best, a one-way trip to a headache at worst." But on the positive side, they also concluded that "G-Force is decent, solid, chipper family entertainment."
GameSpot said: "Fun combat and crafty puzzles make this a good companion to the blockbuster movie." 
The more negative reviews criticised the game for being "predictably devoid of ambition" (X360 Magazine in the UK). Game Revolution criticised its "repetitive puzzle design [and] bland visuals."
