Description official descriptions

You're the undercover agent David Jones who's part of the secret agency IGI and in charge to protect the world from international terrorism.

IGI-2: Covert Strike starts where the first part ended. So, again, you have to fight for your own, infiltrate enemy bases, wander through huge outdoor and indoor levels, hack computers and find the best strategy to solve the mission. You could say: a sneaker-shooter!

Additionally, the game features multiplayer support where you can solve missions on special mp-maps.


  • IGI 2. Скрытый удар - Russian spelling
  • 秘密潜入2:隐秘行动 - Chinese spelling (simplified)

Tense atmosphere meets trial&error - so what?

The Good
Forget about the story, forget about the mission - Project IGI 2 offers great, tense atmosphere with decent graphics and strategical and tactical depth. Sneak, sneak, sneak and shoot from time to time. You'll find yourself lying on the ground between some trees, watching the enemy pass by and sqeezing your mouse because of the tension. "Will he see me?", is a questions, or ...

The Bad
... "Will I have to restart the WHOLE damn level again?". PIGI2 is damn hard from time to time. And you only have 3 saves left for each mission - and some levels are really big, with many very difficult, perfect-timing-dependend situations. You will hate the developers for sending you the tenth time thru that forest, just because you were spotted by a single, lonesome patrol, taking a leak, or so.

The Bottom Line
You're a lonesome special agent who has to infiltrate enemy territory, recover critical data/material and stay invisible as long as possible. So, you have some weapons - but you'll most of all use the silenced and/or sniper-weapons. And even more important are your strategical and tactical abilities. To solve a mission, you'll have to analyze the territory, understand the routes of the guards, look out for surveillance-cameras and plan your procedure minutious.

Chinese ban

The game was banned in China in 2004 for defamation of the country's character and its army. The game's protagonist "steals intelligence and conducts sabotage in China and shoots at China's soldiers while China's national flag and signs like 'China Aviation' pop up frequently". Gaming regulations in the country prohibit games "that hurt China's national dignity and interests".
