Have You Played... Project IGI?

Go in.

Featured post

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

I’ll be honest: I haven’t. But I played the demo so many times over that I feel equipped to reminisce about Project IGI: I’m Going In.

To be clear, IGI had its problems even upon release and I wouldn’t recommend anyone return to it today, but it was the closest you could get to Metal Gear Solid V in 2000 – closer than the original Metal Gear Solid. It was a realistic-ish military shooter in which you infiltrated and attacked enclosed, fortified bases, shuffling between patrol routes or crawling through buildings or sniping down upon your hapless foes from a distant ledge. To my young mind, it played like a first-person Commandos and felt part of the same revolution of first-person simulation that included the first Hitman.

In retrospect, it had no mid-mission save and terrible AI. But for the length of the demo, that didn’t bother me: it was a first-person game that could be conquered through multiple means, and it had an excellent sniper rifle.

There was a sequel – which I haven’t even played a demo of – and then the developer went bust. What a shame.
