The Arab terrorist organization Crimson Jihad plans on announcing its presence to the world in the biggest way possible...a nuclear holocaust. It's up to special agent Harry Tasker to save the world from these terrorists through five levels of overhead shooting action. In order to complete a level, you'll need to fulfill a certain task (such as attaching a modem to a computer) and then find your way out of the maze-like environments. True Lies is based on the 1994 movie of the same name directed by James Cameron and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as Harry.
The action closely follows the film, so you'll find your character inside a Chateau filled with partygoers, outside in a snowy shootout, moving through a large mall, and even flying a Harrier jet! Digitized scenes from the movie will help explain the story, and sidekick Albert "Gib" Gibson (played by Tom Arnold in the film) will keep you abreast of your situation at the bottom of the screen. The top-down perspective gives Harry the ability to shoot in 360 degrees, and weapon pick-ups will offer a choice between a pistol, Uzi, shotgun, grenades and mines. Passwords will allow you to resume your adventure at a later time. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
