MacGamer Previews NOLF
6:00 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
MacGamer's Corey Tames has posted a sneak preview No One Lives Forever, the most recent title announced by MacPlay that is scheduled to ship in the spring of 2002. The preview takes you into the world of stylish spy, Cate Archer, and introduces you to what you can expect when the game is released for Macintosh. Here's a clip from the preview:
No One Lives Forever plays like a straight-up first person shooter, but with some elements which are evolved from the standard "whack a mole" style of Quake or Unreal. More in the ranks of Deus Ex or Half Life, No One Lives Forever emphasizes stealth over wholesale slaughter, some clever problem solving (but not at the expense of action), and engaging interaction with non-player characters. Like Deus Ex, for instance, Cate's weapon crosshairs train over a short period of time over her target, and as she draws a bead, her aim becomes better. Like Half Life, Cate is required to pit herself against clever A.I. enemies that duck behind cover, dodge your attacks and generally make themselves hard to handle. No One Lives Forever even incorporates elements of the arcade shooter, Area 51... where Cate is charged with the duty of taking out enemies who pop up unexpectedly and from every direction (okay, maybe it IS like Whack A Mole in some ways).Although No One Lives Forever wasn't a runaway hit, it was one of the more unique and stylish first-person shooters released in recent memory. If you're unfamiliar with this neat title, be sure to check out MacGamer's preview.
