Atari Australia Press Quotes - Windows:
    "IGI 2 is a game that emphasizes stealth over frontal assaults, and the mission design bears out this philosophy. You can't go wading through a level hoping to shoot everything in sight and accomplish your mission goals" - GameSpot

    "More often than not, you'll want to eliminate enemy soldiers one at a time or create diversions to make them investigate where you aren't, thus allowing you to sneak up behind them to cut their throats silently or simply sneak away." - GameSpot

    "Graphically and visually the differences are also quite stunning from the original and IGI2 is shaping up very nicely" - GameSpy

    "The enhanced graphic detail and revamped enemy AI routines also bode well for the final release. In conclusion, this playable slice of the project proved thoroughly enjoyable, and given that almost every aspect of the title is still work in progress, it would seem that a critically acclaimed reception awaits IGI 2 upon its projected arrival this May." IGN Vault

    "The graphics engine of the first game contributed greatly to its success, thanks mainly to its ability to render detailed locales without skimping on view distance. The same engine has been implemented in the sequel, with a number of enhancements being added to bring the visuals up to a comparable level with contemporary titles. New lighting algorithms have been employed, and the decorative engine paintwork that some refer to as textures have been reworked to take account of the greater amounts of memory available to current graphics cards. The aesthetic overhaul doesn't stop there, as the units and characters look more solid and more lifelike respectively, thanks to a revamping of their structures and animations." IGN Vault

    "IGI feels like a much more balanced effort than the original. Detailed environments and co-operation enemy A.I meets heaps of sniperhappy action - yay! " - Atomic Magazine

    "Innerloop Studios deserves some serious praise for distancing themselves from the competition by taking an innovative and challenging approach to the single-player experience. 4/5 stars" - Avault.com

    " Aside from the single player experience, Covert Strike also offers a unique and rewarding multiplayer environment with some great mission settings. Despite the high level of difficulty, this is a very well planned and well-executed game that represents what a sequel should be. I would easily recommend this to anyone looking for a challenge. " - Avault.com

    " In the long run Innerloop dished out one of if not the best tactical shooter to date. With the strong AI, mission objectives, and weapon selection, the game is ranked up there with Swat and Rainbow Six. Anyone looking for an exciting, challenging, and picture perfect, tactical shooter won't be disappointed when they play Project IGI 2. 8.5/10" - Worthplaying.com

    DESCRIPTION:
    IGI 2 is set soon after the events in Project IGI. The Cold War has ended and the Soviet countries are attempting to rebuild their shattered nations. No longer faced with a nuclear stand off, Russia is able to move financial support from its military forces to its private research and production industries. World powers turn their attention to gaining information on each other’s industrial secrets.

    The spiralling plot takes the action through Russia, across Libya and into China utilising locations including military airbases, harbours and secret government installations.

    The game takes place over three linked campaigns, each packed with individual missions. Each mission expands the plot and is sequenced with impressive animated scenes that absorb the player in the game's carefully constructed narrative.

    Jones' new assignment has him plunging into Russia to locate and retrieve any evidence of the rumoured EMP chips – new technology which IGI suspect could be employed in weapons development.

    It won't be an easy ride: completely new Artificial Intelligence systems will give Jones’ many enemies the ability to work together as effective teams, using realistic combat tactics and electronic security systems to locate him, hunt him down and neutralise him.

    Just getting near the chip prototypes – located in a weather research centre high on a mountain top – has Jones crawling through a network of mine tunnels, ambushing a convoy, defending himself against an attack from Russian security forces and avoiding being caught up in a blaze of gunfire from an IGI copter as it cuts down enemy troops.

    At least Jones has resources to deal with the enemy – whether intelligence gathering, sniping a guard from a distant tower, or storming a courtyard with all guns blazing. IGI 2: Covert Strike will feature an outstanding array of realistically modelled weaponry in both single and multiplayer modes, from sidearms and machine pistols to assault rifles and missile launchers. Surveillance and similar modern technology, including a GPS system and infrared scopes, will be featured throughout the locations.

    GAME FEATURES:
  • Mission based covert operations.
  • New save game feature within game at any time
  • Vastly Improved computer A.I. with squad-based enemy attack patterns and realistic fighting and intelligence behaviour
  • There will be 19 missions, divided into three campaigns; Russia, Libya and China (+ multiplayer) .
  • Vast selection of weapons to choose from.
