Mission: Impossible is a third-person shooter stealth video game for Nintendo 64 and PlayStation based on the 1996 film Mission: Impossible. It was developed by Ocean Software and published by Infogrames Entertainment. It was later ported to the PlayStation by X-Ample Architectures, with minor additions such as voice acting. It was one of the last games to be developed by Ocean Software after the company was bought out in 1996. A sequel, Mission: Impossible – Operation Surma, was released in 2003.
The player controls Ethan Hunt in most of the missions, and the majority of the game centers around completing tasks undetected or disguised. The player can choose from a wide variety of weapons and gadgets, including pistols and automatic weapons. On select missions they are given the explosive gum and the Facemaker from the movie. They are also given explosives to set on targets. Other equipment Ethan is provided with includes smoke generators, infra-red contacts, gas injectors, fingerprint scanners, and computer disks.
Unlike most other shooters of the time, the gameplay often required the player to exercise caution and restraint in carrying out mission objectives. In many missions, outright use of violence is discouraged or even penalized, and it is easy to fail a mission by accidentally shooting the wrong person.Most of the missions require the player to stealthily infiltrate or sneak out of areas, such as CIA Headquarters in Langley. They can infiltrate some facilities only using the Facemaker, which disguises themselves as one of the enemy. Sometimes the player is required to do this multiple times.
The levels roughly follow the storyline of the movie, though there is a subplot based in Russia that is entirely original. There are five missions comprising 20 levels.
