Excerpt: 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...
Excerpt: 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.
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.
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'.
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...
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!
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.
Excerpt: Fantastic ideas 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.
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
