IGI-2: Covert Strike

Posted on

Your name: Jones. David Jones. Your mission: to save the world from Russian terrorists and other shadowy figures by taking them out before they know what hit them. Trigger-happy gamers may be disappointed by IGI-2: Covert Strike‘s emphasis on stealth over slaughter.

Sure, we’ve seen it all before, but Mr. Jones’ latest mission is a clandestine success.
