Quite possibly the best FPS/Stealth game of all time

Summary: I'll never forget getting the demo of this game on a cd in a computer magazine. Some friends and I were checking it out when all of the sudden one of the bad guys got into a discussion with a vendor who wanted to sell him a monkey. Sat and listened to the conversation that went on for a good five or six minutes.
Summary: I bought this game in early 2001 and liked it a lot then. In 2010, it plays flawlessly on 64-bit Windows 7 with hardware 10 years in the future. Smart, fun, sexy, great gameplay and story line it has many references to the 60's and early 70's. Many of the weapons are authentic and all have lush realistic feel and sound, even reloading is cool. Fun fun fun!
Summary: I do not understand why this game never became popular. It is so much fun, and its different. After Portal, this has to be the game with best humor. I love this game and I throughly recommend it.
Summary: No One Lives Forever (NOLF) is a zany spy spoof along the lines of Austin Powers, that strikes the right balance between action and humor. The game is rather dated now, but still worth playing. Like a lot of older first person shooters, it's very long and has a wide variety of tasks to accomplish, ranging from battling sharks to sneaking onboard a rocket to conducting an interview. (Yes, an interview.
If you don't own No One Lives Forever you're missing out!

Summary: What are you doing? Stop reading and order both of the No One Lives Forever games before they're no longer in print. I'm serious. These games have a great story, great humor and awesome action. You play a 60's era spy on the trail of evil masterminds. No One Lives Forever has it all... great music, graphics (for its time), cool weapons, stealth if you want and long hours of gaming goodness.
A groundbreaking, witty, seriously creative classic.....

Summary: After Half- Life, no other game came close to matching its style and execution. At that time, Age of Empires , Warcraft 2 etc were the mainstay since they offered some variety in real-time strategy. However, the First-Person shooter genre was devoid of any conceptually appealing games, barring the usual Quake or Unreal, which weren't story driven in the real sense. One can call them as graphics-defining games.
Summary: 'The Operative: No One Lives Forever' is one of those rare breed of first-person shooter games (at least the ones I have come across), where there is more to the game than just shooting. There is a progressive storyline, which shows great care and detail (as well as a wink and nod to old 60's camp spy movies), and the game is divided up into scenes, just like a movie would be.
Summary: This game is entirely entertaining. With each level, you will use different weapons and devices, such as throwing a coin to distract the guards, using "body powder" to dissolve dead bodies, or using fuzzy slippers to walk through an area without being heard. This game is 1 part adventure, 1 part strategy and 3 parts action! It is a blast. There is a lot of sleuthing around and attempting to remain undetected. And there is a lot of sniping.
