First Impression: The Bourne Conspiracy

June 5, 2008

I’ve always considered the Jason Bourne movies some of the more entertaining action movies to be released. When I saw that there was a Bourne game on the horizon, I was a little skeptical as most of us that remember the horror of early movie/game crossovers used tend to be. Because of this I intentionally kept my expectations low.

Heading into The Bourne Conspiracy, I honestly had no idea what type of angle Sierra and High Moon were going to take with this series. After playing through 2 or 3 levels last night, I can safely say that I am actually very impressed with the way this game has turned out.

My initial comparison would be that it feels a lot like Stranglehold, only really good. Stranglehold wasn’t horrible, but this game is just feels so much better.

I won’t spoil the forthcoming review, but it really is a very solid title from what I can tell. I’ve barely scratched the surface, but I am really enjoying it so far. It’s so rewarding doing a multi-person takedown while surrounded by enemies.
