Summary

Some people have always maintained that the seventies would come back into fashion, but they never suspected that it would do so in the form of a video game. After Austin Powers, it seems that the age of brightly-coloured furniture and clothing is making a major come back. But for PC, it will remain in the artificial world that is “No One Lives For Ever”, a retro themed game for the millennium.

The classic good-versus-evil of the seventies has made its return for this one, and as such, you get to take on the role of the beautiful hero. As a first-person shooter, this game is reasonably different from the likes of Quake and Unreal, and incorporates both combat and stealth elements of play. You must strictly follow the instructions of many of the characters of the game to succeed as a special operative. If you don’t behave accordingly, you will not be able to progress. Some of the earlier missions involve using your skills as a sniper to protect others, keeping the old bad guys at bay. There are 60 levels in all, spread across 15 missions, with many dangerous usable weapons at your disposal along the way, including the AK47 and the M79 Grenade Launcher. You will get to ride motorcycles, snowmobiles, and have head to head combat with some truly cunning computer controlled bad guys. Oh, Behave!
