Taking its cue from the cartoon show, Max Steel: Covert Missions sees the nano-technology enhanced protagonist embark on a quest to rescue his boss from the terrorist group D.R.E.A.D, and eliminate the threat their new biological weapon poses to the world. In this third-person adventure title, players will need to make use of Max's various abilities as they make their way through eight levels spanning locales such as the junkyard, dockside, and N-Tek headquarters. When in stealth mode, Max can slip by unsuspecting enemies unnoticed, or by "Going Turbo" he can increase his strength and speed for limited periods of time.
More rudimentary abilities, such as climbing and jumping, are also available. Throughout the adventure, players will obtain weapons and gadgets that will aid their quest, from sniper rifles to machine guns to trip wires. Hand-to-hand combat is common in the game, and players will need to use an assortment of punches and kicks to neutralize the henchman and other such enemies that stand in the way. Health and armor items can be found inside crates scattered throughout the levels.
Familiar faces from the cartoon show will appear throughout the title and Josh McGrath's alter-ego Max Steel will encounter allies such as Roberto Martinez and Max's mentor Rachel, along with villains such as Psycho and Dawn. Breaking up the action elements of the title, players will need to solve puzzles or find keys and passwords in order to progress further into enemy territory and towards the final confrontation. Along the way, Max will face off against boss characters such as living slime creatures and robots. ~ Gavin Frankle, All Game Guide
