  1. Blasting action with more depth than your average FPS.
  2. FPS fans with a hankering for the often imitated, never bettered feel of "GoldenEye" will find plenty here to luxuriate in, but if you want to shoot people without having to resort to caution you may find this a grind.
  3. A solid sequel that in many ways improves on the original concept.
  4. It just could easily have been so much more. If you like a stealthy action game with decent graphics and aren’t too bothered about playing online IGI2 might just keep you busy.
  5. 60
    Seriously lacking in terms of pacing and challenge.

    Looks are pretty much the only appeal. The main culprit in sabotaging the attractive premise is the horrible AI. [May 2003, p.82]

    Incredibly dull and uninspired, full of weird A.I. behaviors, bad graphics, and crushingly boring ennvironments. [May 2003, p.72]

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A worthy sequel! IGI was a great game in itself, good story and gameplay. This one differs in many ways. About the number of weapons you can carry at a time, its just two here, compared to anything and everything in the former. Next is the level objectives, few parameters like health remaining, accuracy, time taken etc. which decide your rank! Unlike IGI, here you can be 'spotted' by the enemy thereby alarming the nearby guards. Then there are peek and crawl modes which are vital, since stealth is needed to clear levels and get a good rank. Other enhancements are in terms of equipment. The thermal scanner is the most notable. Aiming is also more realistic, its more random from uneasy postures. Some levels are real tough to clear! On the whole this game is worth playing once. Expand

    Thought this was a great game... a bit hardware intensive, but fun to play.

    Достойное продолжение шутера с элементами стелса, и с большими открытыми пространствами.Достойное продолжение шутера с элементами стелса, и с большими открытыми пространствами.

    La suite de "Project IGI", le soit-disant FPS... "furtif" (la bonne blague...) mais aussi et surtout super-casse-couilles ! or, on ne peut pasLa suite de "Project IGI", le soit-disant FPS... "furtif" (la bonne blague...) mais aussi et surtout super-casse-couilles ! or, on ne peut pas dire que "IGI 2" ait mis de l'eau dans son vin ou alors c'est du vinaigre... le plus gros progrès si l'on peut dire, c'est tout de même la possibilité de sauvegarder ! mais seulement 3 fois en tout et pour tout... après c'est vafanculo !

    Pour le reste, bien que le jeu soit encore étonnamment joli et propret (il marche assez bien sur Win7-64 -à part un clipping de textures proches au sol- si on lui met la compat' Win 2000 dans le derche, ça lui plaît !) bien que le jeu soit intégralement en français (très correct) bien que l'interface soit plutôt présentable, "IGI 2" reste toujours aussi lourdingue !

    Les cartes sont grandes, très grandes mais dès la première mission, on se rend compte du problème : le jeu vous oblige à passer par le "couloir" qu'il a décidé sur la grande carte... c'est comme ça et pas autrement, alors pour l'infiltration (lol ?) lorsqu'il faut flinguer 4 types au portail sans déclencher (?!) l'alarme... vous repasserez !

    Du coup, ça devient du FPS bourrin et con mais sans possibilité de se soigner (les soins, c'est pour les lâches... ou les morts !) contre des tas de cons qui n'arrêtent pas d'arriver sur vous (mais combien y en a dans cette base au juste ?).

    De toute façon, vu l'immensité des niveaux, le gars ne court pas assez vite et lorsqu'il est accroupi, il avance comme un petit vieux sur son déambulateur , flinguer une caméra appelle une mégachiée de renforts et réveille encore (presque) toute la base...

    Non, ce machin reste irrécupérable et doit d'ailleurs rester dans l'oubli, au fond du placard et même de préférence dans la poubelle : un pseudo-jeu (très mal) fait par des incapables... heureusement, leur studio a disparu, Dieu merci !
