    Despite its quality it won't set the world on fire like it did back in the Eighties, but it's a poignant and subtle reminder of how games used to be written and how wonderfully brilliant games back then could be.
  2. This Impossible Mission remake won't set the scene alight as it did during the '80s but it's a solid, faithful rendition of a cherished old classic.
  3. In the shadow of this missed opportunity, Impossible Mission is just a tease.
  4. It's as playalbe as ever, but it's also just as limited. [Nov 2007, p.86]
  5. Another pop-culture museum piece gets the time-warp treatment, this time the apparently ageless Impossible Mission.
  6. 55
    Even with the knowledge of that bug, I really wasn't all that hot for the Impossible Mission design. I love reliving old-school designs, but in the case of the Nintendo DS version it should have been one of several games instead of a headlining solo outing.
  7. 50
    Not particularly sure why this game is valued at AU$49, since it is such a simplified game that barely holds any substance compared to newer and similarly priced games.
  8. Our relationship with IM is similar to the one we have with our grandparents - kudos for giving us life, but pardon us if we don't want to play with them. [Sept 2007, p.70]

    An almost perfect port and retexture of the Commodore 64 classic. The downsides: A couple of bugs, and the lowering of the difficulty level. A great game, and don't listen to the whiny kids who never knew the fun of playing C64 games! Full Review »

    Played it for about 10 seconds, and then well, quit. The graphics are really bad.. and I couldn't get the hang of it very well. Maybe if you've played the original and enjoyed it, you would like it. (I never did..) Full Review »

    Graphics made out of stick men.
