Description from the packaging.

More than just a great game... It's an adventure!

Call up your courage, your ingenuity and your aptitude... and all the cunning, dexterity and tactical expertise you can muster! You'll need it. The twelve desperate missions in this Microprose classic use them all. You'd better be at your very best.

Test yourself as one of America's elite fighting men. Embark on solo missions behind enemy lines- rescue hostages from a terrorist prison or infiltrate the HQ of an enemy unit. Whether starting an infiltration, search and destroy, rescue or sabotage mission, plan on plenty of heavy-hitting action!

Experts call it the Real Thing!
