Project IGI: 2 Covert Strike Full: DESCRIPTION: Published by: Codemasters Software Company Limited, The Developed by: Innerloop Studios Released: Sep 27, 2007 Platform: Windows ESRB Rating: Mature Genre: Action Perspective: 1st-Person Perspective Non-Sport: Fighting, Real-Time, Shooter, Spy / Espionage You're the undercover agent David Jones who's part of the secret agency IGI and in charge.
Project IGI managed to take gamers by surprise, thanks to the very refined gameplay mechanics and high difficulty level, which kept you playing for hours at end just to complete a single mission. Deciding to build upon that, the developers released a sequel, which featured a return of the legendary ex-SAS operative David Jones.
The locations from singleplayer make an appearance in multi as well
In case you are not aware, IGI 2: Covert Strike deals with the same type of missions as the original game did, throughout locations like China, Russia and Libya. Naturally, at the center of every scenario lies a secret airbase, harbor or various other facility, which Jones must investigate and clear of any terrorists that have established their base of operation on government ground.
As such, the multiplayer maps are also centered around this kind of locations, featuring mostly abandoned facilities and secret bases in the middle of nowhere, with no sign of civilization around. Unfortunately, the level designed could have used some more work, since the environments are rather lacking in detail and the maps are somewhat too open for any meaningful confrontations.
No place for stealth and tactics
Unlike in the original game, this second title suffers from several flaws when it comes to gameplay mechanics, since it certainly does not feature the same amount of suspense and well-thought missions. Moreover, the multiplayer mode leaves no room for any stealth tactics, mostly because there aren't too many buildings or structures that can be used to organize ambushes.
In addition, although the graphic engine has been slightly improved, the lack of ambition can be clearly observed when it comes to the environment and the surrounding landscapes. The guns may look a bit better, but there are no significant improvements in this regard either, which is a real same, since there are a few nice additions to the overall arsenal.
A game that came out sooner than it should have
All in all, IGI 2: Covert Strike could have used a bit more development time, since it gambled too much on its previous performance and forgot to raise itself to the same quality level. Plus, the multiplayer truly does not bring any interesting component, to differentiate it from the rest of the titles on the market.
