5.0 out of 5 stars A great game alround., 5 Feb 2004
This review is from: No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way (Video Game)
One of the most unusual mysteries of PC games this. Immersive, amusing and enjoyable, it seems odd how poorly this game sold.
So, whats on offer? Well, if you played the first NOLF this newer version shows a definate increase in most areas, AI and mission desgin prominantely, and the naff accents have been cut out. Well mostly anyways. This game is unique in its choice of opponents, theres no denying that. Ok, Russian conscripts and sten gun stooges are pretty commen, but when was the last time you fought mime assasins armed with 1920s tommy guns (who also see the need to perform mime acts while being shot at), virtually indestrucable super soldiers or the frankly hilarious super villan boss in a full body cast and who attempts to run you down in a motorised wheelchair equipped with a missle launcher?
Weapon wise this game also has an edge over most others, your arsenal ranging from the common AK-47 and sidearm to the missle launcher in a handbag and robotic kitten proximity mine, with even the humble banana becoming a weapon in the right hands, it seems.
This games only real weak point is its ability to complete missions using either the tried and testing frag-a-thon of going in guns ablazing, or creating distractions and lurking in the shadows. While this in itself isnt a flaw in any way, the later option is often the more difficult to pull off than it was in the original or in other games such as Invisible war.
Genually amusing, original throughout and graphically sound, this is not a game you want to miss out on.
