Mission Impossible:

Operation Surma

The last few years the video game industry has seen a flood of stealth action games such as Metal Gear Solid, Splinter Cell, and the Hitman series -- just a few notable games to gain wide recognition.

 

Mission Impossible: Operation Surma's (MIOS) story line seems very similar to most stealth action games. You play Ethan Hunt who is part of an organization bent on preventing the Sumra Corporation from global domination . You won't be alone in your fight against your enemies as you have plenty of gadgets, weaponry, and disguises at your disposal. Along the course of the game you will also get help from your IMF team. One of the weak points of stealth action games is how linear the game play can be. You are usually stuck with completing a mission by taking only one path.

 

 

MIOS is hoping to change this with multiple paths to take to complete the mission. This addition should also beef up the replay value of the game over the long haul. The missions take place in global hot spots such as the Middle East and Eastern Europe, which should pave the way for mission variation.

 

Fans of the Mission Impossible movies might be disappointed to learn that Tom Cruise will not lend his voice to the development team, but then again you don't need Tom Cruise to fight an evil corporation.
