Set in the 1960s, No One Lives Forever has been critically acclaimed for, among other things, its stylistic representation of the era in the spirit of many spy-themed films and television series of that decade, as well as for its prevalent use of humor. Players control female protagonist Cate Archer, who works for UNITY, a fictional secret organization that watches over world peace.
No One Lives Forever has received several Game of the Year awards in the press, which lead to the release of a special Game of the Year Edition in 2001. The game was also ported later to Mac OS and PlayStation 2 systems.
The video game is the first title in the No One Lives Forever series of games. It was followed by a sequel entitled No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In H.A.R.M.'s Way (2002), and a spin-off that takes place during the time between the first two games, Contract J.A.C.K. (2003), both developed by Monolith.
