i saw this for nine pound and i thought im getting that. i love the films and the books so im glad they made this. hand 2 hand combat is truly brilliant, shooting is good but not awesome and the one car level is a bit iffy but what it lacks in solid steering it makes up for in sheer fun. a tad short but hopefully theyll make two and three because they could utilise the driving aspect more like in supremacy youve got the car chase in india and the awesome chase at the end, and in ultimatum youve got the bike mission in tangier and the high octane chase around NYC. bring on 2&3!!!!!!!

  Very, very impressed.

This is an amazing game. I only spent about £10 on playtrade, and never regretted it. The combat scenes are awesome, and even though there is no live option on it, there is replay value, im on my easter break just now, and ive played it nearly everyday so far, even though I've finished it. And the ONE driving scene in it is sooo much fun!!! The adrenaline takedowns are very cool, although Im trying not to use them as much recently, as im after acheivements. Buy it, especially at this price, I've turned into quite the Bourne fan, and you wont be disappointed.

  The Bourne Game from the film

| | See all Rubix78's reviews (21)

The Bourne Conspiracy follows both the first film and the book, it adds in bits from the film and memories of past jobs being an assassin before Jason lost his memory. You start off on the game before where the film starts on the Wombosi case. There are 3 missions out of the 11 just on the Wombosi case and only 5 missions out of the film which are all short leaving the other 3 missions which are past hits.

The battle system is what the game is all about and the only place it fails badly! Although a great idea fights use only three buttons, He has both fast and heavy strikes attached to the X and Y buttons respectively. Tapping either button triggers a punch while holding a button down charges a fast or heavy kick and the A button is your defence. The fights look really good but the problem is the camera moves around a lot trying to give of a dramatic impression. While the camera moves around you sometimes go off-screen for a couple of seconds leaving you to guess what you are doing. By stringing combos together in one of eight combos, you can cause serious damage to an opponent. Each successful strike will boost Jason's adrenaline meter, and when one section of the meter is filled, he can perform a takedown which can take an enemy down with one touch of a button (B) or take more energy off a boss battle.
You can increase the adrenaline bar up to three times to max and this can be used for three individual takedowns or if you have three enemies around you, you could take them all out if you get the quicktime events right.
Quicktime events occur throughout the game and sometimes can be very annoying, if you are in the middle of a fight and your enemy tries a take down on you a quicktime event will come up for you to counter the move but if you are to busy still fighting you could press the wrong button therefore getting hit.
Other problems with this game are the camera while moving can be annoying especially when you have a weapon drawn, also when you take cover behind something you can't just run in and do it sometimes you have to run to where you want to go then stop and then cover by this time sometimes you are shot by then! Also while undercover you can sometimes get hit through a pillar or something and also sometimes you can shoot enemies through your cover which is impossible and just lazy programming.

Shooting is another thing that annoys me in this game, aiming is slow! When you take cover and then come away to shoot the aiming does not auto focus and by the time you have moved your sight the enemy has moved. Also sometimes you take a headshot and they will die straight away and other times it takes a few hits.
The last problem I have is while running away from enemies like in the Embassy level (Demo Level) while running away from shooters and you get into a fight but once you defeat that enemy the camera is not always left facing the way you were running and sometimes you have been turned around then and you start running into trouble instead of away. Also maps are not always clear and to go back to a point just raised when you enter a one on one battle and there are shooters you can not break away from the fight and therefore you still get shot at and could end up getting killed.

The storyline pretty much follows the first film with some old missions included, the graphics are good and the gameplay when working can be fun to play but there are just too many issues. I wanted to like this game but it's just full of frustrating moments and it's way to short.

the was my best liked game for a very lon time , havent played it in a while but is awesome , but like the person below me said it is a bit too short

  bourne is alright for money

| | See all legendz's reviews (2)

I think bourne conspiracy is alright for it's money but don't buy if you are saving up. Get games like gears of war 2 when it comes out or alone in the dark which has better graphics and fighting than boune conspiracy.this is why i gave it three out of five.there is a lot more better games.

  Awesome but................................

  Brillient, but could have been even better

This game for this price is a must.
Its a very enjoyable game, graphics are excellent.
The takedown system is awesome, it doesn't get boring, its environment specific so just like the films you use anything to take someone down.
This game would be at least 4 stars if it was 3 or 4 levels longer.
Buy it, enjoy it, sell it on.

  Could have been amazing...

This is one of the best fast paced action games out there. The close-up takedown system rocks, and all in all then its just a completely solid action game.
For once then i think that a game really connected with the flicks.
Super game.

Hoping for sequel.
