Excerpt: Know what bugs me? What really annoys me? All of the liars in the video game industry that say: "these violent games are getting more realistic." The Bourne Conspiracy on the Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 is a classic example of why these violent games are not getting more realistic.
Excerpt: What happened if you made a game from a licensed movie years after the film was released? Would fans of the film swing by and give it a shot for nostalgia’s sake, hoping to relive their past enjoyment?
Conclusion: There are several achievement you will have to grind through and with a game with poor repetitive combat it gets old quick. At the end of the day there is a lot of potential with the decent graphics and the addition of takedowns but the poor repetitive combat takes the fun out of this title.
Conclusion: The Bourne Conspiracy succeeds for one simple reason: It makes players feel almost obscenely powerful. Though that may sound like an oversimplification, too many game developers neglect this all-too-essential element.
Pros: The aforementioned fisticuffs get even better when you pull off the game's context-sensitive moves. If you wind up near a microwave (or a shovel stuck in the ground, or a fire extinguisher), you can pull off some super-moves that would make even Kimbo Slice cringe.
Cons: The driving segments are about as much fun as an eye exam at the DMV. Suffer through them, and get back to the fisticuffs.

However this is not what the Bourne Conspiracy is, falling into more dumb action movie genres along the same lines as Strangehold (although for what it was, was a great game).
Summary: Dying Light is an amalgamation of a bunch of game mechanics and ideas borrowed from other franchises, but it does come together into a mostly satisfying whole. This open world free running zombie survival sim from the makers of Dead Island gets a lot of the important stuff right, but stumbles when...
Pros: Satisfying melee combat; fun free running; scavenging and exploration is fun; decent visuals; awesome music
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...
