The game is played from a top-down perspective. The player gets to control three IMF operatives from the TV series – Max, Grant and Nicholas – all of whom have different skills necessary for completion. The used character may be switched anytime in-game.
On the street at the very beginning of the game, civilians may not be harmed, and such activities will most certainly bring the mission to a highly embarrassing end, as local authorities proceed to arrest the attacker. While infiltrating an enemy’s hideout, discretion is advised as detection by the surveillance system will bring security guards.
