    This prequel is good, but short.

    Contract J.A.C.K is the official prequel to Gamespy’s 2002 PC Game of the Year No One Lives Forever 2. No more playing Cate Archer. You are now a male, secret agent. The game-play is exactly like the original, No One ... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Contract J.A.C.K.

  • Review Score:7.5

    A nice game to play after finishing No One Lives Forever 2 for hours of fun. Not as bad as the critics say...

    You're Jack, a contract killer and you get employed by Dmitri Volkov (cate archer's enemy). The story through the game is quite good, especially if you've played No One Lives Forever 2. You'll get some flashbacks, as ... Read Full Review

    Boy, what a downer. I guess they guys at Monolith thought that since they had a great game with great reviews but with less than stellar sales, they had to try for a new image, and a new main character. Well, for anyon... Read Full Review

    Super ultra action packed thrill ride!! Too bad Mono left out the vital factor of variety. This game would kick a donkey's nuts with a steel toe boot if it weren't for the uninspired Neverending onslought of mindless h... Read Full Review

    It's pretty lame for a FPS, but for a third game in N.O.L.F series it a disgrace. it could've been a lot more than it is

    I don'y write reviews usually, but after I played this game I has so much on my mind that I had to say so I decided to do so. When i heard of it, immediately got excited, since I'm a big fan of N.O.L.F and N.O.L.F. 2. i ... Read Full Review

    What's wrong with a quick blast 'em up?

    I don't understand why game reviewers slammed Contract JACK. Did their expectations for a continuation of No One Lives Forever-style depth ruin the experience? They damned this game, not because it was horrible, but for ... Read Full Review

    A game that feels more like a filler episode.

    Contract J.A.C.K. had the potential to be a good game. After all, it was developed by Monolith who have made some great games in the past, and was set in the No One Lives Forever universe - and the NOLF games have deser... Read Full Review

    Good: Graphics & Music. Bad: Gameplay is repetitive, no game balance.

    Presentation Comes in your standard DVD case with a detailed manual and a single DVD disc. The game menus are easy and effective. Story & Dialogs Prequel to NOLF2, the story in NOLF2 didn't need to be justifyed so t... Read Full Review
