Excerpt: To many Matt Damon is Jason Bourne, although on this gaming adaptation Bourne simply doesn’t look or sound like the actor, although it’s not a poor copy, as he‘s not actually meant to resemble the movie version of the amnesiac with a murky past. You see, if you want to portray the likeness of an actor in your games, in this silly world we live in, you have to purchase the rights to use their overly expensive faces and get their permission to do so.
Excerpt: It is telling that you can replay boss fights from the main menu in The Bourne Conspiracy - they are by a country mile the best thing in the game. What we know and love about the Bourne films - the visceral, brutal, super fast shaky cam fight scenes - have been faithfully recreated by US developer High Moon Studios. It's a crying shame then that the rest of the game is such a let down. As it is Conspiracy is one of the best licensed games in recent memory.
Conclusion: The Bourne Conspiracy is a game split between tense, fully satisfying combat and rather generic third-person gunplay. For fans of the films it really does live up to the hype as far as "being Bourne" is concerned but unfortunately only half of the game lives up to this adage. Hopefully High Moon will be able to make a sequel - and I'm praying Matt Damon says yes this time - and we'll see these problems ironed out.
Excerpt: Why The Bourne Conspiracy didn't come out in conjunction with the DVD release of the final Bourne film is beyond my comprehension, but whether we like it or not, the title has now infiltrated our PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles and provided a mediocre experience at best, despite having some pretty cool elements mixed in. The Bourne Conspiracy follows the movements of the first Bourne film, The Bourne Identity.
Summary: The Bourne Conspiracy
is an enjoyable game which delivers a decent action experience to both fans of the Bourne films and those who have never seen them. Excellent beat ‘em up action is hampered by shooting which could have been a lot tighter, but at the end of the day
The Bourne Conspiracy
is a decent action title that’s certainly worth checking out if it sounds like your sort of game.
Pros: Excellent hand to hand combat with brilliant takedowns which are just like the film., A variation of escaping, shooting, fist-fighting and car chases keeps the action fresh and varied., The difficulty is just right.
Cons: Shooting mechanics are poor, especially alongside the excellent hand to hand combat., Quite a short game, with a poor ending.
Excerpt: Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne character has already gone through three installments on the silver screen, and most action fans will agree that each were very well done and wildly entertaining. Therefore, in their effort to make a video game based on the forgetful spy, High Moon Studios had a solid concept to work with, provided they implemented the technical aspects correctly. Going in, the idea was excellent, and there are certainly a lot of Bourne fans out there.
Summary: The moment you break a guy’s leg in two places and slam him into a wall is the moment you realize you’re right at home with Robert Ludlum’s: The Bourne Conspiracy . High Moon Studios, the designers of Darkwatch , wanted you to feel as if you’ve become Jason Bourne when you play the game. Thanks to some great camera angles and attention paid to the series, there are times when you truly do.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is With the cinemas already full of summer movie releases, we at the gaming world are bracing ourselves for the countless number of movie-video game tie-ins that are going to creep towards us. Having said that, I had the opportunity to play a game based on a trilogy of movies that first released in 2002. Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy for the Playstation 3 is based on the movie trilogy and books of the same name.
Summary: Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy is a third-person espionage action game where players move from fistfights to firefights to experience sequences that, unlike any other game, seamlessly blend Bourne's signature hand-to-hand combat with intense shooting and the ability to escape and evade deadly situations.
