Those of you lacking an ATI/nVidia graphics card probably lack support for Hardware Transform & Lighting. While these graphics cards are not meant for playing the latest and fanciest games, some old ones also throw a problem or two, and after eagerly getting my hands on No one lives forever 2, it refused to run out of the box. Thankfully utter disappointment can be avoided very simply - download this version 1.3 patch. The game will still be buggy though, and may crash at times, but something is better than nothing!
The game is good fun, though not as good as the original.
