The game is set in 1967. Yet, in the opening cinematics, in Cate Archer's apartment you can see a German "Bettina von Arnim" 5 DM banknote, which was first issued in 1992. See more »


[Cate has eluded HARM once again]
HARM Agent: She got away.
Inge Wagner: What did you say? I don't think I heard you.
HARM Agent: She, uh, well, I, uh...
Inge Wagner: Say it!
HARM Agent: She... got away.
Inge Wagner: How is that possible? Perhaps you feel the odds were in her favour?
HARM Agent: Nein, Fraulein Wagner.
Inge Wagner: Then you're admitting that you failed?
HARM Agent: Jawohl, Fraulein Wagner. I should be punished.

Perhaps the greatest PC game ever!
5 August 2002 | by (Springfield, Vermont) – See all my reviews

THE OPERATIVE: NO ONE LIVES FOREVER has forever defined PC gaming! NOLF is the story of newly recruited UNITY agent Cate Archer. As Archer, you must find out what the evil organization HARM is up to - shooting, exploding, talking and running your way through things. Meet with a whole cast of characters, from the most evil to the most hilarious.

This is a hilarious action-comedy which has forever defined PC game...perhaps the greatest PC game ever! The graphics are stunning, and I've never seen a game like this. I can't wait for the upcoming sequel... ********8.4 [VIDEO GAME RATING]
