  • Summary: Travel the world controlling M16 Secret British Secret Service agent John Cord in this Spy action action adventure.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 13
  2. Negative: 1 out of 13
  1. It has a very solid story which actually makes sense, a good atmosphere, and very good graphics. Definitely a recommended title.
  2. Its mix of classic adventure-style gameplay, intriguing storyline, logical puzzles and just a touch of action make it a topnotch choice for fans of thought-inducing gameplay.
  3. A fine game for the adult adventurer who enjoys dark spy novels and also is willing to tolerate a bit of "consolitis" in her/his gaming experience.
  4. Extremely immersive and one of the best espionage titles available to date on the personal computer.
  5. 66
    I can recommend it to anyone who wants a spy based adventure game, but if you're really looking for action and suspense you'll be sorely disappointed with ICB.
  6. The many cut-scene cinematics are first-rate, the settings (despite the herky-jerky animations) look wonderful, and the rich incidental music works seamlessly with the story.
  7. The solid story, decent backgrounds and cool gadgets just aren't enough to offset the lame animation, awful control and bland action.

    Flawed, but very, very enjoyable. Intelligent, well written, atmospheric, better than the bond films, espionage as it's supposed to be. Well done. Expand

    The controls aren't the best, but still an amazing game. Revolution just keeps making classics! Love them :) - 9 out of 10 is a perfect score for this game... Expand

    They must have worked on animations little more but despite that, game has strong story, good places to explore, reality in play (especially in shooting someone). In short, it is quite good in its class of espionage. Expand

    Hey, considering I only paid 15 bucks for it, (Gasp! PAID for a game?!?) it's not a bad title, but yeah I have to agree, the control does indeed suck, especially when you need to haul ass, but otherwise a real pretty game to look at... Expand

    Fine story telling, weak interface--Progression can be halted for long periods by simply not seeing a latter, etc.
