Summary: NOLF 2 is a fun game, but I felt that something was missing from this sequel. NOLF 2 is shorter than the original and is more compact. For example, instead of steadily advancing to a new area, the player is sometimes required to backtrack to previously explored areas, artificially extending the...
Summary: No One Lives Forever 2 both surpasses and falls short of its predecessor’s high standards. Bad things first: The game is simply too short. If you are acquainted with this genre you will see the credits rolling after no more than 10-15 hours - NOLF 1 offered more than 10 additional hours of effective...
Summary: After playing the first two missions of No One Lives Forever 2 (NOLF2), I thought I'd found what I previously thought did not exist: namely, a flawless game. Everything seemed perfect, but alas, nothing is perfect in this world especially when it comes to computer games.
Summary: I never played the first No One Lives game, but this one somehow appealed to me in the previews. The phrase "She's smart, She's sexy, And she's knocking them dead from Japan to Akron, Ohio" got me. I had bought one of the newest spy games (James Bond: 007 Nightfire) but it just wasn't cutting it.
Summary: If you intend to play this game before you have completed the first NOLF, you are making a major mistake. This is a great game, but the original NOLF was much better. If you beat NOLF 1, and are still thirsty for more Cate Archer espionage, this is your fix.
Summary: If you had the opportunity to play the original No One Lives Forever, and you're thinking of purchasing the sequel, chances are you liked the original: A fun, campy, action-packed spoof of 1960's spy movies (James Bond in particular) and television shows.
Summary: Superspy Cate Archer is back, but since I've never played the first NOLF, this has no signifigance for me. The reason I bought it is because I liked the idea of a female spy, and because I'd read nothing but great reviews in gaming magazines.
Summary: Long story short: Good game. But subpar when compared to its predecessor. I won't go into details, but if you look, you will find reviews on game sites that agree with me. Basically, this game on its own merits is excellent. It has great graphics, great design and style, and a decent story.
Summary: NOLF 1 is in my top 10 of video games, so I knew NOLF 2 would have big shoes to fill. I'm happy to say that the sequel is an excellent followup. Like the original, NOLF 2 pits sexy superspy Cate Archer against HARM, the nefarious and bumbling crime syndicate.
Summary: I very much enjoyed the creativity of the original No One Lives Forever and had very high hopes for this sequel. Very importantly, make sure your computer meets the technical requirements (e.g.
