MacPlay has secured the rights to bring The Operative: No One Lives Forever to Mac OS X.

Originally published by Fox Interactive, this first person shoot-em-up should ship in the second quarter of 2002 for Mac OS X.

Its PC counterpart has received much recognition, with PC Gamer magazine dubbing it "Action Game Of The Year", while Maxim Online gave it a rating of nine out of ten.

According to Mark Cottam, president of MacPlay, the game offers "a great storyline, fun game play and a dash of 60's humour".

In the game, secret agent Cate Archer completes dangerous assignments in foreign locations. Armed with gadgets and weapons, she must thwart terrorist group HARM.

Pricing for the title has yet to be announced.
