Contract J.A.C.K. is the official prequel to No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way. The game revolves around John Jack, a contract killer under the H.A.R.M. flag. Jack is sent on a mission by H.A.R.M., whether he likes it or not, to stop an Italian crime organization. Contract J.A.C.K. lets players explore "the dark side" of the No One Lives Forever universe, using a large arsenal of weapons over 10 single player levels.


Contract J.A.C.K. Windows Shooting up the Czech army.  Remember that in the 60's, they were bad guys.
Contract J.A.C.K. Windows Multiplayer mode allows the use of every NOLF2 model even though 95% of them aren't in the single player game.
Contract J.A.C.K. Windows H.A.R.M. Operations Officer Dmitrij Volkov provides the "connection" to NOLF2.
Contract J.A.C.K. Windows The .50 cal Desert Eagle is Jack's signature weapon.  Probably because 9mm rounds do about as much damage as a paper cut in the NOLF universe.
