For old school SEGA fans, before their entry into the (and then exit of) console market, the company had always been about arcades and still are. The latest entry is a licensed Mission: Impossible game that hos now begun shipping its Deluxe cabinets around America and Europe. SEGA’s arcade division isn’t a stranger to using licenses to create high quality arcade experiences since they’ve also made games based around Die Hard, Rambo and even recently Transformers.
“Agent, your mission should you choose to accept it, is to save the world by sabotaging enemy plans that aim to weaponize humanoid robots. You will have a range of weapons and high-tech gadgets at your disposal to complete your mission but remember time is not your side.

SEGA’s Mission: Impossible Arcade is an adrenaline-fueled video game, that is the pinnacle of great design and entertainment.
