I was actually looking forward to this stinker, but after purchasing it I came to realize that it was plagued by stability problems and it was simply no fun to play. The **most** frustrating problem is the utter lack of aiming accuracy when your character is inside a building. Try to aim for a headshot and your mouse pointer just... never... quite... goes where you want to aim. A close second on the irritation scale is the fact that enemy units can snipe you from 200 yards away with machine pistols -- yep, I'm not joking. Finally, IGI2 simply offers nothing new -- in fact, it feels as though the Innerloop developers were following some sort of first person shooter development handbook. For example, wherever there's a camera, there's a box to hide behind; wherever there's a guard, you can be sure there's a good 10 second interval where his back is to you. The original IGI (although sometimes incredibly frustrating) was actually quite fun -- it improved with replay. But, this sequel makes you wonder what the developers were thinking. In fact, I can't finish this game... When a game begins to feel like work it's time to cut your losses. I play a *lot* of videogames and I suggest you take your money and your valuable time elsewhere. I would suggest purchasing either Splinter Cell or No One Lives Forever 2 as an alternative to this waste of packaging material.

I finished the first level and it wasn't too hard after you understand that stealth is the way to play this game. That is, avoid the guards, cameras and be sure to hide in the shadows. I have begun the second level, going down into the mines, and I have been killed about 20 times now with less than two minutes into the mission. The slightest slip up and you have a dozen guards with automatic weapons all shooting at you. Even killing a guard with the knife is enough to get an instant response from other guards who come rushing from another room.
It appears that there may be only about two saves possible per level, so you have to be very wise about when to save the game. Looks like I'll have to buy a hint book for this game.
The graphics are excellent. I am running a P4 2.53, 512 MB ram, with a Radeon 9700 Pro with about everything maxed out.
I am playing at the medium difficulty level, but will probably have to go to the easiest to stand a chance at finishing the game.

I bought IGI2 reluctantly, after being tormented by IGI1. Complaints over the lack of saves on the original was supposedly being addressed in this sequel. NOT!!! Well, you get 3 saves! Count 'em... Three! And, you can't delete previous saves, so you still have to start all over again if you get killed, or at least, where you saved last. It's very annoying and frustrating. Still, the original game had terrific scenery and I loved it for that. One major bug I've noticed is that if you're laying flat on the ground near an object, you can't turn, even the slightest to shoot an enemy! I got killed numerous times and cussed so loud the neighbor's heard! And several times I went to throw a grenade and, I not only couldn't throw it, it didn't go off! And it's amazing how you can shoot an enemy with an oozie in the head and he still manages to kill you! And I only found ONE health kit-syringe, so there's very little chance you can recover your health in the game...Somebody didn't take the time to check out the bugs in this game! It's fun at times, if you can stay away from objects! Worth the money? I'm still not sure...

Once again, this is a case of developers putting all their time and dollars into great graphics. Forget plotting, realistic AI or non-buggy gameplay. Look cool and those moronic gameplayers will buy it before the word gets around that its a bad game.
The most insulting thing about the game is the limited saves. By doing this they take away how the player wants to play. It should be totally up to the player whether or not to repeat the same routine again and again and again until he has learned the precise combinations of crawl, shoot and duck that some incompetent programer deemed the only right way to go. Buy Hitman 2 if you want to see how a sequel should be made.

I found IGI-1 so interesting that I had no second thought in buying IGI-2... and yes it did pay my money.... The graphics and sound is extremely good giving you full real life effect. The objectives are not so easy. The enemy can easily strike you and it is not possible to recover your health unlike the first part. If you get killed you have to restart the game all over again. At times this may be frustrating but one way its good. It will bring you more ideas and strategies to achieve those objectives. You can carry a max 2 weapons and few grenades and nothing more than that. For most part of the game you will find the AI acts pretty smart and it will always keep you busy. But yes you can find loop holes in some of missions. In IGI-2 you will have thermal imaging camera which means you can see your enemies even through walls and locate their positions. You can now stay behind the wall and start shooting your enemies right through the wall. All your enemies are dead without you loosing any life. It is difficult to move right or left if you are crawling. But overall you find this game interesting and is worth buying.
