Excerpt: Us Norwegian fellows aren't very much noticed in the gaming industry, and it's simply because we don't have a whole lot of companies in that area (we rule oil, but that's another story). On the other hand, when we do make games and they actually get released on a worldwide basis they are usually of good quality. Innerloop Studios is a bunch of guys who are located in the capital of Norway, Oslo.
Conclusion: There. IGI is striving to be a perfectly realistic game in some aspects, yet some of its features keep it far from that. I, personally liked the game, and I wasn't that bothered by not being able to save games (He's a lying bastard! He was bitching and moaning all the time - Ed). It just made me play more cautious and plan each move in advance. After several days of play, I forgot all the flaws and felt like I was playing a 3D version of my favorite Commandos...
Pros: A lot of weapons, relatively smart opponents, addictive gameplay;
Cons: Similarity of levels, corny storyline, strange physics, and no multiplayer?? Oh yeah, and the lack of save game options can get a little frustrating, although it does add a decent amount of suspense.
Excerpt: Project IGI review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com I'm happy, and it's not because of illicit drugs. Nay, I'm happy because developers are now targeting me with the new crop of FPS. As I like to pretend I'm smart, I dub these "the thinking man's FPS". You know the games I mean, where stealth, creativity, and a little bit of planning are rewarded. Deus Ex, Hitman: Codename 47, No One Lives Forever, and now Project IGI.
Excerpt: Project IGI is 1st-person stealth/thinker shooter that stresses cunning and covertness over firepower. In the game you are Dave Llewelyn Jones, an ex-SAS member now working as a freelance operative for both the American and British governments. You have been given an assignment that will carry you throughout Eastern Europe and into a fortified Russian base with one objective: stop a homicidal Russian colonel bent on turning Europe into a radioactive wasteland.
Excerpt: <p><P>Project IGI<br><br>You’ve survived worse..but not by much. Now you have to bandage your wounds, infiltrate a fortified Russian Base, disable the security system, and get the goods…then the real excitement begins! I’m Going In is the first military stealth shooter to stress cunning and covertness over firepower. Use all the latest spy equipment and weapons to get the job done without detection.
Excerpt: RHAAAAHHHHHH. Excusez-moi mais il fallait que ça sorte. Je suis toujours ainsi quand un jeu passe tout près de la réussite. Parce que Project IGI avait à peu près tout pour faire un petit carton chez les fans des rangers bien cirées et du "garde-à-vous-repos". Entendez par là : c'est un shoot militaire en 3D qui joue la carte du réalisme. Mais de nombreux défauts, petits et gros, viennent alourdir l'expérience ludique de la chose.
Excerpt: Vous incarnez David Jones, soldat surentraîné d'un pays qui aime bien intervenir dans d'autres pays. Des méchants ont volés une ogive nucléaire (les salauds !) et vous êtes chargé...oui vous tout seul, d'aller récupérer le gros pétard. Enfin tout seul...vous êtes épaulé par la belle et intelligente Anya (3 années d'étude en électronique et physique nucléaire, véridique !), qui tape sur son ordinateur pendant que vous tranchez les gorges ennemies.
