IGI 2: Covert Strike
26 May 2012
Excerpt: IGI2 gives you control of David Jones, an ex-army man recruited by IGI (Institute for Geotactical Intelligence). IGI is a group of highly trained elite warriors, controlled by the private sector and founded by Senator Pat Lenehan.
Excerpt: The original Project IGI was cursed with probably the worst name ever seen in gaming (except perhaps that old PC Engine game, Bonk). It was also cursed with some pretty poor AI and basic gameplay flaws, not to mention a difficulty level straight from Satan's bowels, but it definitely had something.
Excerpt: Grab your handy map computer, special issue covert clothing, flack jacket, vest, night vision range finder binoculars, a thermal imaging device and some fire power. Now get used to it all, because it will likely save your life wile playing IGI 2: Covert Strike.
Excerpt: After the Cold War ended, humankind needed a new hobby to occupy it in its spare time. Corporate struggle replaced political struggle and nameless, faceless business conglomerates vied for global domination instead of nations. So goes the storyline of
IGI 2: Covert Strike.
Summary: Innerloop have in many ways improved over the original, yet the sequel retains many of the trouble spots of the first.
Pros: A nice level of detail on the large outdoor environments; sound effects are accurate and the voice acting is well done; solid multiplayer mode.
Cons: Frequent crashes and a lack of patching near release make this game extremely difficult to play; an unacceptably high level of difficulty and poor artificial intelligence model with deadly accurate shots.
Excerpt: The IGI, or I'm Going In series proves that you don't have to own a console to get a good stealth shooter. The IGI series in its original incarnation is far older than either Metal Gear Solid or the Johnny-come-lately Splinter Cell.
Excerpt: To start things off, I will say I enjoyed most of my time with IGI-2: Covert Strike. I have my complaints, of course, but overall, Innerloop has made an impressive leap forward in the gaming world the second time around with this series.
