Compared to what passes for movie tie-ins; The Bourne Conspiracy is the best out there. You will find not better game based on a movie. Combat is powerful and entertaining, stealth is annoying; but works, the quick time events feel in place and when you drive; you'll have an adrenaline rush. The Game's story is good and while the textures aren't great-they at least don't glitch or break. The pacing is great and the bosses actually take some skill. If you were looking for the best video game based on a movie-look no further.
There were definitely moments when I wanted to chuck my controller across the room because one of its minor design flaws sent me to a cheap and unfair death. And yet, there were also moments when the game clicked for me and I really did feel like I was a damaged super spy on the run.
Overall this game just screams 'middle of the road': a good opportunity that hasn't been fully taken advantage of. Having said that, if you have a spare weekend free and fancy a game that doesn't involve too much brain power and won't take you long to complete, then this is the ideal rental, but nothing more.
Its gameplay mechanics are abysmal in almost every conceivable way. Its story is nonsensical at best, sacreligious at worst. Its entire running time is completely disrespectful to the player's intelligence, assuming that if the character models and locations change, the player won't realize he's getting into the exact same gun battles and fistfights he engaged in at the very start of the game. Looking at The Bourne Conspiracy as a list of bullet points, it is an undoubtedly awful game...But why, then, did I have fun with it?
Jogo de 2008, finalizei na data que estou escrevendo, apesar da idade é jogo que tem bastante ação, na parte do tiroteio faltou refinamento vc descarrega arma com mira vermelho sinalizando que está acertando mais inimigo não morre, porém na luta corporal é onde o jogo se destaca, na ambientação achei que os cenário tem muitos detalhes como propagando cartão crédito, objetos até então bem definido, fase museu onde onde tem as esculturas no tiroteio elas se quebram, nem tudo cenário é destrutivo mais pelo ano lançado. Este jogo se fosse pouco mais refinado parte tiroteio seria ótimo mais valeu por ter jogado lembra bem o primeiro filme da trilogia.
A re-telling of The Bourne Identity that perfectly captures the feel of the movie. Despite some clunky mechanics, it's a fast and fun mix of shooting, brawling and QTE moments. I would compare it to the James Bond video game "Bloodstone". The repetitive game design kept me from scoring it higher. I would rate this with a 7.5 out of 10.
so this story isnt canon? oh well. this was still a decent time. it was fairly short that probably explains my score for it. fun gun and hand to hand combat action pieces were not bad but could been a little better. storyline was short (depending on difficulty setting) and a blur to me, not very memorable. the game came out the same year as GTA IV...never the less its decent and worth whatever price it is now days.
Given it's another game based on a film, I was expecting a 4/10 game. I was pleased to be proven otherwise. In terms of quality, this game is as you'd expect - mediocre. There are some glitches here and there, and checkpoints aren't always as well-placed as they could be (especially for Assassin difficulty). What annoys me is that when you've spent 5 minutes clearing out loads of enemies and get to a cutscene, you take your hands off the controller to itch and boom, you've failed because of a quick-time event. That said, the QTEs are actually a strength of this game. There are some cool features in the game, such as the adrenaline meter for cinematic takedowns (involving QTEs) and Bourne Instinct (as adopted by Arkham Asylum). These takedowns not only make you feel like you're watching Bourne in the film but also act as a vital combat tool which adds variety and resets the pace of a heated battle. In terms of game mechanics, the Bourne Conspiracy is surprising robust. The hand-to-hand combat can be described as a somewhat basic "Cinematic Tekken". There aren't many combinations so it does get repetitive, but despite this the boss fights are intense, satisfying and make you feel like you're controlling Bourne as he is in the movies, so it does the job. Shooting-wise, the game is solid too. One big gun, one side-arm, all real weapons and good cover system. The lower field of view when your weapon is drawn and the simple dot crosshair mean there's no aim assist, and the realistic ammo capacity emphasizes accuracy. Being accurate is as difficult as it needs to be. Enemies take a realistic number of shots to die, and the hit detection is good. The controls - as with everything else in the game - are simple, but feel like they were more designed for the PS3 controller than 360 one. The achievements are exhaustive of everything in the game, and are all offline. Graphics, being on Unreal Engine 3, are standard, and do a good enough job; especially when compared to other movie-games. Overall, the Bourne Conspiracy is definitely a game you should consider if you have any interest in the classic Bourne Identity film. Some of the classic scenes are remade with the game engine and you get to play some of the parts as they happen in the movie. There are also some levels which were not in the film but give more of a background to it. It's not a straight port of the film to the game, but there are some parts of the film, which is good because you can see how the story connects and even understand the film a bit better. By nature, the game is VERY scripted and you cannot deviate from the set pieces, but then again you don't need to, since this is more of a cinematic, interactive Bourne movie rather than a free-roam game. The bottom line is, if you wanted a game which can make you feel like Matt Damon in the Bourne Identity, this does an excellent job. The difficulty is just right so it's very satisfying at points.
Melee combat feels brutal and satisfying, but the same cannot be said for the shooting mechanics. Shooting feels like you just shot a thick pillow in the shape of a human. A generic shooter made better by the melee combat, I guess give it a try if it is cheap. Very dated.
