Project IGI (PC): One of the most frustrating things I've ever played
4 September 2009
Summary: Project I.G.I. is a game notorious for being incredibly difficult and almost entirely inaccessible to the casual gamer. I bought this game when I hadn't been an FPS gamer long, back in 2000, and became infuriated with it rather quickly - it's one of the hardest games I've ever played (perhaps even moreso than the later stages of Ninja Gaiden), and many years later I still couldn't be bothered to persevere with it.
Pros: Good graphics and sound
Cons: Horrible lack of saves, annoyingly inconsistent AI
Summary: A nuclear warhead has been stolen and it is up to you, David Jones, as part of IGI to find information on it from Josef Priboi. Sounds simple no? It gets more complicated. A member of the Priboi family is involved as is betrayal along with your mission to find the warhead. IGI is meant to be a stealth game and more often than not you will use stealth to complete the missions however there are times when you can run, shooting like a maniac and complete the mission.
Pros: Passes the time and requires some stealth
Cons: Gameplay is a letdown due to repetitive level layout and poor AI
Excerpt: "Project IGI, quality game and very cheap. You play as David Jones from IGI taking on a variety of missions and levels, from planting bombs on enemy tanks and fuel dumps, to excaping from snowy Russian mountains when your helicopter was shot down. Think, stealth mixed with gunhoe madness in one. "Think your way in shoot your way out." This game is for any standard as at the first few levels are easy and they quickly get harder. The game ...
Excerpt: "Set in the modern day with maps in snow, mountains and desert terrain this game has a good mix of missions. With a convincing storyline backed up by good cinematic clips in between missions. It leaves your always wanting to complete the next level to get ever closer to the elusive 'EKK'. The maps are simply immense as no terrain is unreachable and the physical maps go on forever. In this game you will never reach so called 'out of bounds' (as once ...
Pros: Excellent gameplay/Playablity
Cons: Some graphics glitches, None of your friends will ever of heard of it
Excerpt: "In Project:IGI (which stands for "I'm Going In" and will now be known from now on as IGI) you play David Llewellyn Jones, an ex-sas officer recruited by an anonymous counter-terrorist organisation to retrieve a stolen American nuclear warhead from what appears to be a Russian crime syndicate headed by members of the Pribori family. Jones is aided on this mission by Anya, an agent of the counter terrorist force who supplies him with mission updates ...
Pros: Huge sized levels, decent graphics and sound, good range of weapons, more realistic than other games of this genre .
Excerpt: "Well what a great idea for a game... some dudes have stolen a nuclear weapon...nice to see the guys at Eidos are really pushing there writers into original plots(!) So what would make the game stand out from a fairly overused plot? We will see! ---Graphics--- The graphics are pretty ok, not up to photo-realism by far but definitely away from primitive cartoons seen in some games. The people look...average, scenery is quite nice and tanks and ...
Excerpt: "The game itself isn't bad graphically should you push the resolution to 1600 x 1200 but this is quite a high resolution and isn't within reach of some graphics cards. Playability is good, but the AI of some soldiers leaves a lot to be desired. Gadgetery and guns is good. The use of the shift key as the action button is annoying especially since the quick pressing of it activates window's sticky key function. The story line is a bit lame but its not ...
Excerpt: "...abound in computer-game design, and Project IGI held great promise with its mission-based, covert-ops first-person shooter focus, near-limitless viewing distances, and dazzling, huge outdoor vistas. Certainly, Innerloop's clever use of the Joint Strike Fighter flight-sim engine delivers an amazing visual experience. You can snipe from across huge maps, and realistically fire bullets through thin walls. Unfortunately, that's about all you get with ...
Pros: The sniping is great; huge levels with impressive viewing distances
Cons: : Levels all look the same; not enough sniping; horrible enemy AI; cheating problems
Excerpt: "...able to miss Cogreen Strike: Project IGI. IGI 2: Covert Strike is the continuation, quite simply. You thus go to be able to again embody the agent David Jones, and cross the world to avoid the destruction by massive weapons of destruction stemming from the ancient east block.. With the difference of the majority of the quakelike, IGI 2: Covert Strike will require to you a good amount of patience and discretion. Do not hope to end the game in a single ...
Project IGI (PC): skilled players only and a bit dissapointing
30 July 2002
Summary: I loved this game when I first got it but it started to get really difficult and I just stopped playing it and it disappeared off my computer after not playing it for a year or so. At first the realism of the game is brilliant, when you shoot at a wooden object the bullets rip through it but when shooting at a metal object it deflects. There is a bit of false advertisement I reckon because it says that you can interact with many vehicles but you don?
Pros: Brilliant realism
Cons: Non interactive vehichles, Difficult, No multiplayer
