15 Games Like IGI

Games Like IGI Our collection of games like IGI features tactical first person shooters where you can use multiple paths and strategies to achieve your mission objective.

Project I.G.I.: I’m Going In launched in 2000 with a sequel in 2003 titled I.G.I-2: Covert Strike. Both of these games placed emphasis on a more tactical and thought out approach to military style missions as opposed to the more direct conflict shooters that have been popularised in modern day gaming. A third game with the IGI name (Project I.G.I.-3) also exists but is a fan made experience based on the original two official games.

While both games had their issues with bugs and received mediocre success both of the games developed large community followings due to the uniqueness of the series. Gameplay involved players tackling missions one by one that each featured their own mission objective, while this objective was often simple it was the various approaches available to players that made the game popular.

With each mission featuring different routes players are encouraged to utilise the less violent routes that often involve stealthy and covert movements, leading to better chances of survival and mission ratings. The main character (David Jones) is often outnumbered which forces players to think more strategically and use every advantage he has available to him from the different weapons, gadgets and support.

The games like Project IGI found below promise a similar experience that revolves around stealth and tactical planning. While these games offer plenty of firefights and weapon options it’s the stealth route off the beaten track that will improve your chance of success.
