Summary: I too grew up plaing this game on my old C64. I must have tried at least 20 times before I actually completed the mission. I can remember the frustration I had with the room that has nothing but small platforms on the bottom of the screen. Once I realized that he could walk over the spaces I finally was able to complete it. Oh what joy! I have the version for the Wii and have truly enjoyed the walk down memory lane. The updated graphics are great.
Summary: I imagine many of the people buying this game are those looking to play a game that they last played in the 80's and I fall into this camp. I bought Impossible Mission for the Commodore 64 computer back in 1985, when it was considered one of the best computer games around. Both the graphics and sound were considered outstanding, especially the digitized speech which was novel for computer games at that time.
Summary: I originally played this game on the Commodore 64 and for an 8-bit machine the graphics and sounds were surprisingly very good. It was a bit like Saboteur in a way as you would control your little secret agent guy as he ran around in a massive industrial complex going up and down elevators, doing huge somersaults and dodging the evil robots while trying to solve a cryptic puzzle on a huge musical chess board and searching for clues.

Excerpt: "...for the Nintendo DS game, Impossible Mission, developed by System 3 and published by Warner Bros. This platform game is a modernisation of the Commodore 64 release of nearly 25 years. Remaking an old game is always a dangerous thing to do, some remember the original as it is and rather it wasn’t modernised, but without modernisation the game can be just too old fashioned despite the happy memories that players might have of it. Many do have fond ...
Conclusion: This game really does match its title: It is impossible to do. I have wasted hours on this game and got nowhere. It isn't really clear where you have to go and I really don't see a point to it. Maybe it is better for adults but none of my family could do it. You just go up and down in a lift, entering rooms and getting killed by strange robots. I coudn't get past the first level so maybe if you do it might be more exiting. I don't think I will ever find out!
