The Operative: No One Lives Forever is a first person shooter set in the 1960’s. You control a heroine named Cate Archer as she saves the world from doom at the hands of a nefarious covert crime syndicate called H.A.R.M. With a plot seemingly drawn straight out of a James Bond movie or an episode of The Avengers, Cate Archer travels to exotic locales around the world to put a stop to H.A.R.M.’s plans. Missions range from guns-blazing frontal assaults to covert operations that require stealth and careful planning. The game also includes multiplayer support that enables Mac and PC users alike to participate in variations including deathmatch and Good Vs. evil modes.
No One Lives Forever was a surprise hit when Fox Interactive and Sierra first brought it to market in 2000, and has already spawned a sequel. MacPlay first announced plans to convert the game to the Macintosh at Macworld Conference & Expo San Francisco this past January. The game’s core engine technology is Monolith’s LithTech 2.5 engine.
MacPlay has noted that the version it’s shipping is the “Game of the Year Edition,” which bundles several additional levels and a special audio CD containing 1960’s-inspired lounge music.
System requirements call for a G3/350MHz or later; Mac OS X 10.1.4 or later; 128MB RAM; 3D video card with at least 8MB of video memory; and 900MB free hard disk space.
Available for order from the MacPlay store and at Mac game retailers for US$49.99, The Operative: No One Lives Forever has been rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB.
