Is it possible to use Farseer for a top down style game or are the assumptions in the code that the view is from the side going to make that impossible?

You should be able to just supply 0,0 for gravity. Avoid controllers made for side-view like crashlander's water drag controller. (Name?) For rolling or floating objects, just set the linear drag as you normally would. If the object is supposed to be 'walking', you would probably want to set the drag very high, and apply a constant accelleration while moving. Increase them proportionally. The higher they are, the harder they are to budge. Or so I would imagine...
