NOLF Takes Home Award 

Today it was announced that No One Lives Forever has taken home the award of "Best/Weirdest Quote (Or Voice Work) of the Year 2000" from Daily Radar. Here's a bit of their review and reasoning behind NOLF's nomination:

"Rarely does an action game's dialog make us laugh. Even rarer is a game that does it consistently. No One Lives Forever is one of those extremely rare games. Nowhere is this more apparent than during the time spent listening to the guards and scientists, including a prolonged discussion of an episode of the 1960s Batman TV show and the HR benefit programs of the various evil organizations."

NOLF nominated for best story 2000

PC.ign.com is currently running a readers poll for the best games of 2000 and No One Lives Forever is nominated for two awards with remaining categories to come. Right now, you, the readers of this fine site have a chance to let your voices be heard. Go over to their polls and vote for NOLF in the categories of Best Action Game of the Year 2000 as well as Best Storyline 2000. Here's a bit of what they had to say about the storyline of this amazing game:

"Excerpt From Review: Not only does NOLF include an obligatory stint on a space station orbiting the earth, but also an extremely cool "jump out of a burning plane and catch the guy with the only parachute" level which fits in perfectly with the campiness of the game. Because of the quality cinematic feel of NOLF, you really feel like you're playing the lead role in a spy thriller. The designers and writers did a great job of using the story to give you plenty of character background, so you don't feel like you're just playing a floating hand with a gun attached."

Final days to vote for NOLF

Pc.ign.com is extending there Action Game of the Year 2000 for another day. Here's one of your last chances to put in a vote for NOLF for Action Game of the Year. We've pulled in quite a few awards over the past few weeks and this would be a great one to add to the collection! Here's a taste of what they had to say about the game:

"Excerpt From Review: NOLF is a shooter with a brain and a sense of humor...let's just hope more developers will jump on the bandwagon and give us a shooter experience like this. It's stylish, it's smart, it's witty, it's campy, and it's a whole lot of fun. What more could you ask for? As much as I'm going to cringe by impersonating Austin Powers, "It's groovy, baby! Yeah baby, yeah!" Feel free punch me in the face now."

Awarded again

GamePen
has released their list of PC Games of the Year and No One Lives Forever has taken the award for Best Action Game of the Year 2000! We beat out some good games to take this top spot so if you want to see who the losers were, click here and see what couldn't hold up to NOLF. Here's a taste of what was said:

"No One Lives Forever knows "the camera angles, the incidental music, the dialogue, and it knows the heart and soul of a period espionage flick was not necessarily the gadgets and clothes, but the action and intrigue."

NOLF gets award nod

GameOver.net has named No One Lives Forever the game with the Best AI in the Year 2000! What does that mean you ask? Well, out of every game made in the Year 2000, NOLF's bad-ass enemies were the smartest of the bunch. Well, well, NOLF gathers another award from the press...Thank you, thank you...Here's a bit of what they had to say about our fun little game:

"A very commendable part of the game is the AI. I haven't played against such a "smart" AI in quite some time. The coolest part, as far as I'm concerned, is when you attack enemies, and they hide behind furniture, stick just their hand with the gun out and lay down blind suppressing fire. That is just way too cool."

Tuesday - January 9, 2001

NOLF Named "System Shock"

Over at one of my favorite gaming sites, DailyRadar, they have given No One Lives Forever their "System Shock Award" for action games. Here's the criteria for their "system shock award":

"Simply put, a "System Shock" is the underdog. A wonderful game that didn't sell as well as it should have or was a total surprise. A game that made an impact that even we jaded press types didn't see coming. Not necessarily the best game of the year but perhaps the most promising, just as System Shock itself was in its day. Examples: Half-Life, Starfleet Command and TIE Fighter."

Now, they have awarded NOLF with this award because, as we all know, it basically kicks ass! Here's the rundown of what they had to say:

"SHOOTER
System Shock: The Operative: No One Lives Forever came as a big surprise to a lot of people. We never expected a stylish shooter packed with minor innovation, saddled with an awkward and overlong script but finally delivering stealth gameplay into the (almost) modern age. Dig it!"

Thank you for the kind words and believing in the game Daily Radar! We salute you...Boba Fett has spoken...

NOLF Wins Another Award

Desslock's RPG News has awarded NOLF the Action Game of the Year!!! Here's a bit of what they had tosay about the game:

"Monolith has produced one of the best first-person shooters, EVER! Extremely varied gameplay for a game of this genre, No One Lives Forever also provide excellent graphics, AI and dialogue."

Thursday - January 4, 2001

Voodoo Extreme gives NOLF nod

Voodoo Extreme named No One Lives Forever the best First Person Shooter of the Year recently and I thought you should all know! Everyone's favorite heroine beat out the likes of Deus Ex and Soldier of Fortune for this top place in their minds. Here's a bit of what they had to say:

"The solo experience in No One Lives Forever really excels, with superb writing, movies, music, levels and best of all...fun gameplay. The missions are shaken, not stirred - offering a bevy of activities besides simply running around, shooting things. Scuba diving, skydiving, driving motorcycles and snowmobiles spices up the game nicely, and the super-sexy sleuth, Cate Archer, is a great leading lady. Kudos to Monolith for producing such a top-notch product!"

Well, there you have it! Another award and we are very pleased to accept it. Thank you to everyone at Voodoo Extreme for liking the game.

2000 Game of the Year Awards

No One Lives Forever has been given the 2000 Game of the Year Award for best story in a game. We would like to thank GameSpy for honoring us with this award. Here are a few of the things they had to say:

"Year after year we cry, "Give us plot! Give us story!" This year, we got it from Monolith in the form of No One Lives Forever. Dropping you right in the middle of an intriguing 60's spy flick, NOLF uses a healthy number of in-game cut-scenes to advance the story and keep the player interested as the story unfolds. Add a dash of James Bond gadgetry along with a twist of Austin Powers humor and you've got one of the most enjoyable stories in a computer game this year."

NOLF Readers Choice Awards

Boba Fett has chosen all of you and anyone else you know, are acquainted with or have given the head nod to in a public place. Here's everyone's  chance to prove the GameSpot critics wrong in their Game of the Year choice. No One Lives Forever is nominated again in a number of categories including Game of the Year. Here's where your voice can and will be heard. Check out the readers oll on GameSpot.com and cast a vote for NOLF. 

We are the Action Game of the Year!!! 

GameSpot has given us the distinct award as Action GAME OF THE YEAR! We were nominated for many awards including Best Music, Best Sound and Game of the Year but harnessed only one award, which we are very pleased with! Boba Fett is happy as well as all of you should be since we already knew that No One Lives Forever was the best Action Game of the Year. Here's a bit of what they had to say about NOLF:

"Just when it seemed as though 2000 would come and go without any significant action game, Monolith released The Operative: No One Lives Forever, a game that's considered an equal to Half-Life in many respects and superior in others. No One Lives Forever has elements of stealth like Thief: The Dark Project, scripting like Half-Life, the high-tech gadgetry of GoldenEye 007, and the massive levels of Unreal. Ultimately, No One Lives Forever delivers the most satisfying single-player experience of any action game this year."

Not too bad if ya ask me! Go to GameSpot and check out what other games were nominated and see what beat out NOLF in the other categories.

Awarded 1st Place Again!!! 

VoodooExtreme has named No One Lives Forever THE best first person shooter of the year beating out the likes of something...and some other game (like I'm gonna name the competition on this site!). Thank you to VoodooExtreme for the nice words they had to say about a game we all knew was great already! Here's a bit of what they had to say:

Monolith has delivered a Triple-A caliber, incredibly captivating first-person shooter. The solo experience in No One Lives Forever really excels, with superb writing, movies, music, levels and best of all...fun gameplay. The missions are shaken, not stirred - offering a bevy of activities besides simply running around, shooting things. Scuba diving, skydiving, driving motorcycles and snowmobiles spices up the game nicely, and the super-sexy sleuth, Cate Archer, is a great leading lady. Kudos to Monolith for producing such a top-notch product!

NOLF is one of the best...and VOTE!!! 

GameSpot has announced their top ten list of The Best Voice Acting in Games and our favorite game, No One Lives Forever, has been awarded a spot on the list! There are a lot of other great games that have been awarded a place on the list but we are especially proud because of the caliber of games and the amount of time they have been out. We would like to thank GameSpot for thinking of us as well as for these nice words they had to say:

"Monolith's No One Lives Forever was not only one of this year's best first-person shooter games, it was also one of the most innovative action games we've seen in a long time. The quality of the game's voice acting can be heard without opening your eyes, yes, but to see the 3D character models mouth every word of spoken dialogue perfectly adds another layer of believability to what's an already immersive experience."

Now here's where all of our loyal readers come in. GameSpot is also running a poll for their readers to vote on what game they think has the best voice acting and once again, NOLF is nominated for that. Please jump on over there and vote for NOLF. You and I know it's the right thing to do. For the sake of humanity, vote for NOLF!

NOLF #1

No One Lives Forever has been awarded first place in the Sharky's Shooter Shootout 2000 poll! Of all the Action games released this year, they like NOLF, they really, really like NOLF! Here's a quote on our number one game directly from the voters:

"Who'd have thought it. Monolith surprised us all with what is undeniably the best first person shooter of 2000. It has humour by the bucket load, style by the truck load and a sexy female lead (none other than Cate Archer of course) with more guns to choose from than your average rebel militia and funky gadgets that'd make Bond green with envy. It's also a decent length (something that's becoming shamefully rare in first person shooters these days) and so wonderfully varied both in the gameplay and visuals department that you'll never get bored. Kudos to Monolith for taking the time and effort to make this one great, I haven't enjoyed a game so much in a long while."

Now the question is whether NOLF is going to sweep the field and take Game of the Year from Sharky.com? We'll have to wait and see according to the site:

"For two years running now we've given our Game Of The Year Award to the game that came first in the first person shootout. However, this year things may well be a little bit different, and with so many quality titles in other genres it's not dead certain that No One Lives Forever will pick up this coveted Sharky Award. So when will you know what clinched it? When we pop up our Sharky Games Awards 2000 of course! Stay tuned..."
