    This is one solidly constructed action game that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's called "camp" man. Check it out. [Mar 2002, p.98]
  2. It’s hard not to enjoy No One Lives Forever, it’s difficult not to laugh and need to see the next colourful level. But once you stop, it’s very hard to get excited by what is an essentially a very shallow, but fun game.

    The game's enemy AI really shines. These guys (and gals) are smart. [Mar 2002, p.24]
  4. Doesn’t fully capture the experience of the excellent PC version, yet that doesn’t mean gamers won’t have a blast playing through the game’s fun missions.

    A competent first-person shooter with a good sense of humor, the sort of middling fun you should enjoy between those truly taxing blockbuster titles.
  6. Not only do the graphics look outdated and ugly, but now there’s added slowdown and control problems. But even with its problems, I still can’t help but feel that the game is still a fun experience.

    This game is one funny game. I rarely laugh at videogames, but I found myself laughing during this one. THe story is long and is fun to play. This game is one funny game. I rarely laugh at videogames, but I found myself laughing during this one. THe story is long and is fun to play. It's obviously not as good as the PC version, the graphics are bad and there is no multiplayer. However, this is one of the best FPS on PS2(which is pretty sad). Full Review »

    There aren't any cheats for the PS2 verison are there? The game is great but improvement could easily be made.
