Seriously, though: NOLF was (and still is) one of the most memorable and entertaining shooters I’ve ever had the chance to play.

Monolith has a knack for designing games that ooze style and substance by embracing a particular theme and doing justice to it (Shogo - mecha anime, F.E.A.R. - J-horror, NOLF - spy flicks, just to name a few). It’s just a pity their earlier titles didn’t quite get the attention they truly deserved.
