Tie-in of the popular movie Mission: Impossible, this is a third-person action stealth game with 24 levels. Playing the secret agent Ethan Hunt, the player has to fight international terrorists. Assisted by his IMF team, he sneaks into enemy bases, blows up ammunition depots, retrieves stolen information and takes out the terrorists.
The plot is loosely based on the movie; Ethan Hunt is framed and has to prove his innocence which he is only able to do with the help of his good friends from the IMF team.
During development, X-Ample added a cheat ("RIZZIBIZZI") to the PSX version which would modify the textures of Ethan Hunt and Candice to show them in S/M type clothing. After Infogrames nearly freaked out, the textures were quickly removed. The cheat code is still being checked, but nothing happens if it is entered.
