No One Lives Forever is to be a fast-paced, story-driven first-person shooter that delivers over-the-top action, outrageous villains, and wry humor in the tradition of the great 1960’s Bond films. You play Cate Archer an undercover operative for MI-Zero. Your mission is to arrange for the defection of a prominent East German biophysicist that goes by the name of Otto Dentz. However things go wrong when a terrorist group known as the HARM abducts Dentz during a flight to England.

I finally played this for the first time in 2017. I'm a big fan of retrogaming so it's not a problem. I'm a fan of James Bond movies, of Goldeneye 64 and of Deus Ex, which both have a good amount of similarities with NOLF. I have to say I've been disappointed...

Particularly good points:
- lots of weapons and gadgets found throughout the game.
- being able to chose stealth or action.
- high variety of locations. Very Bond-ish.
- quite good duration (well, chosing the stealth route particularly).

Disappointing:
- stealth mechanics are very flawed, even for a game that was out in 2000.
- physics are flawed too. Solid invisible parts of items that stops shots, enemies shooting at you through walls...
- poor humor all over the very (too) long cutscenes. "He so fat lol", "he so stupid lmao", "she can't sing bwhahaha"... I definitely didn't recognize the announced James Bond-like humor, except when going for a mocking attitude, which always gets ridiculously punished by not getting bonus items that an obedient attitude will provide.

not much to say but it was a great game, its a game that you should play,

and you should play one before you play two,

A timeless classic without a doubt. Embarking on a mission against time stop the organization known as H.A.R.M. from taking over the world unravels a twisting, turning and engrossing story from the perspective of the heroine - Cate Archer. The general spy nature of the game and the ability to play almost every level as a traditional spy or an absolute nut-case shooting and blowing everything up gives this game plenty of replay value.
