    The stealth element, which was the source of much frustration, has undergone a total overhaul: Virtually every one of the game's 40 missions can be accomplished using guile (instead of brute force). [11 Oct 2002, p.85]

    Its presentation is top-notch, its levels are varied and interesting, its AI is convincing, and the whole game drips with love and attention to detail.
  3. Truly a wonderful game, complete with enough humor and action to appease anyone in the market for a good shooter and a hearty laugh.

    The game has a great sense of humor and parodies much of the spy genre without losing the focus of the game.
  5. Not only a worthy sequel but also advances the genre forward with a higher standard of AI, stealth and level design.
  6. 90
    Masterfully blending some spectacular action sequences and a unique sense of humor with elements of stealth games, first-person shooters, graphic adventures and even RPGs, the end result is a title that tops the original in every way, and stands out even among 2002's amazing crop of PC action games.
  7. If it sounds like NOLF2 is a lot like NOLF, and you're wondering why I'm complaining so bitterly, you have my sympathy. When I say they "gutted" NOLF2, I mean it, and I can back it up.

    I still recall this as one of the best FPS I've ever played. I would love to see this IP revisited with a new game. Great storyline, stealthI still recall this as one of the best FPS I've ever played. I would love to see this IP revisited with a new game. Great storyline, stealth modes and spy gadgets. It was as close as you can get to being in a 60's spy movie. Expand

    Not bad, but the respawning enemies suck.

    One of my favourite FPS games on PC. Its better than most of the James Bond games. The story is a perfect blend of Bond and the Austin PowersOne of my favourite FPS games on PC. Its better than most of the James Bond games. The story is a perfect blend of Bond and the Austin Powers series. I love the fact, that the creators decided to go for tongue in cheek approach. The gameplay itself is very enjoyable, allowing the player to be creative. The game is an engaging, adrenaline filled experience with some puzzles along the way. Expand

    PC/Video games can be fun, but they are rotting our youths minds. I have never played this game, but my vote is a 0 as I believe you peoplePC/Video games can be fun, but they are rotting our youths minds. I have never played this game, but my vote is a 0 as I believe you people should be finding more worthwhile and perhaps educational things to do. In any case, thank you for reading this, and do not take this comment personally, as it is simply my thoughtful, yet perhaps completely false opinion. Expand
