Summary: Really enjoyed this classic FPS. Hardcore gamers wont be disappointed. i highly recommend purchasing. Graphics are great, story-line is solid (and not so short) , audio is excellent and the price is right.
Summary: I bought this came years ago and I have played it over and over and over because it is so good. Coming from the same people that brought you the game FEAR. To me this is a far better video game then FEAR though! It makes you laugh, its so much fun to play and there is so much to this game. I had scratched the first disk and was dead set on having the game again because of how good it was. Its compatible with Windows Versions XP, Vista and even the new Windows 7.
Summary: It's now 7 years after this game came out, but in case you're new to the NOLF series and would like to give this game a try, here's a review from someone who thoroughly played through many of the best FPS over the past decade (HL 1/2, NOLF 1/2, FEAR, Deus Ex 1/2, numerous WWII shooters, etc). I notice a number of 1-star reviews, so I looked over them before giving my own take. First of all, half of the complaints deal with hardware incompatibility.
Summary: Cate Archer is back in this much anticipated sequel. She's gotten a graphic face-lift and boy is she beautiful! This time she's after more evil henchmen. As in the last game you'll be able to drive select vehicles and the story is equally as compelling. The graphics are great, Cate never looked better and the environments are way more detailed than the first installment. However, you will find this game to be much shorter than the original.
Summary: This game is pure, high-quality entertainment. You're inside the body of Cate Archer, a British superspy in the groovy 60s, attempting to thwart HARM, an evil organization bent on global domination (think female Austen Powers). Cool gadgets abound, with transformations of ordinary feminine necessities into Bond-like gadgets-- such as a welder disguised as a girly hairspray bottle, or a nail clipper that doubles as a lockpick. The dialogue and cutscenes are great fun.
Summary: I have just completed the game. This is the best game I have played so far. Pros: 1. Good story. There is enough content to be made into a short movie. 2. Strong character development. You will get to know and like Cate Archer the heroine of the story. 3. Good voice acting. This is exceedingly important. Good voice acting is required to draw you into the game. 4. Some humor. 5. Almost photo realistic graphics. I have the Radeon 9600.
Summary: No One Lives Forever 2 (NOLF2) is the sequel to the award-winning No One Lives Forever (how appropriate.) The original NOLF was named Game of the Year by many publications, and for good reason. The sequel brings back some of your old enemies, and is full of snappy British humor, good gameplay, and a fantastic story. NOLF2's graphics are amazing. Environments come to life with real-life physics. The Ohio level is amazing.

Summary: The world of first person shooters is getting a bit played out. There's pretty much two kinds of them: the realistic military type (Counterstrike, Ghost Recon, Operation Flashpoint) and the sci-fi type (Unreal, Alien vs. Predator, System Shock). In all this, there's not much room for improvement and things are getting a bit repetitive- all you do is go in and kill everything that moves, and solve (or cheat) your way past the occasional puzzle that primarily exists to...

Summary: No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way continues the story of British agent Cate Archer, and her quest to save mankind. She's like a female Austin Powers, set in the 60s but a bit more witty and intelligent. Cate Archer isn't Rambo. Her missions aren't about shooting everyone in sight. Instead, you lurk in the shadows, use your ultra-cool weapons like the Angry Kitty, and distract your enemies by throwing coins or hitting wind chimes.
