The Operative: No One Lives Forever is an action adventure game inspired by the spy movies of the 60s. Cate Archer, an agent of the top secret organization called UNITY, travels exotic countries is search of clues that could expose hostile activities of the H.A.R.M. organization. Their agents will to their best to stop her. The game offers 15 missions on 60 maps, which can be completed with a weapon of our choosing from several available in the UNITY's deadly arsenal, including the AK-47 assault rifle, 9mm silenced submachine gun, the M79 grenade launcher, and the silent (but deadly) crossbow with a sniper scope. On more than one occasion, we will have to make use of a motorcycle and a snow scooter to reach some other destination or escape from overwhelming enemy forces.
As a trained agent, Cate not only knows how to handle all kinds of guns, but also can sneak and stealthily kill enemies from a distance. It is not easy, though, for the computer-controlled opponents react pretty realistically to suspicious movement and sounds. The multiplayer mode, in which we may select one of 30 different agents of both sides, allows up to 16 players to play simultaneously.
