Overview:

From the back of the box: Area 51 has been completely overrun by alien forces. Your mission: Penetrate the base, destroy all hostile forces and save the future of humanity! Featuring incredible cinematic effects, engaging sci-fi storyline, secret alien experiment cover-ups, stunning power-ups and the most awesome weaponry to keep you armed and dangerous!!

Evidently the saturn couldn't fully handle this game, since there's a thick border around the playing field. Of course GT interactive didn't think it was necessary to show this on the back of the box. Such nice people!
This is a port of the arcade game with the same name. See the link section for more information about this.
