Upon release on the market in early 2003, the worldwide media and players saw this title as a great improvement upon the original, citing better rendering performance, increased visual fidelity, better AI, more varied mission types, multiple paths to finish almost every missions, better narrative style, and inclusion of mid-mission savegame system which was completely absent from the first game. In addition to a singleplayer, Project IGI 2: Covert Strike game also introduced a limited multiplayer mode.
The entire singleplayer campaign is set across 19 large missions, with the presence of cutscenes before and after each of them. Open combat is not encouraged, forcing players to often first rely on stealth, subterfuge, and non-detection. The difficulty of the campaign can be set at the start of the game, which will impact not only the AI of the opponents but also the starting number of gear and ammo and a number of available mid-mission savegames.
To produce a more authentic product, developers from Innerloop Studios partnered with a famous Special Air Service operative Chris Ryan who served as a consultant on Project IGI 2 game. He provided valuable insights about the real-world mission structures, military procedures, and other aspects of his profession that developers incorporated into this project.
Same as in the original game, the main protagonist of I.G.I. 2: Covert Strike is David Jones, an agent of the Institute for Geotactical Intelligence and former British SAS operator. At the start of the game David was sent to retrieve stolen EMP chip from Russian mafia camp in Carpathian mountains, but during the events of this deployment, he uncovers a large conspiracy coming from inside his I.G.I. organization and sets on a mission to recover the EMP device before it can be used to destabilize the post-Cold War world and tips the balance of powers to the brink of World War III.
