Sierra today began shipping Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Conspiracy for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The action game has players assume the role of Jason Bourne both during his time as a trained assassin and during his time as an agent on the run.
As we indicated in our Bourne Conspiracy review today, the game blends hand-to-hand combat and gunplay in a mostly successful way, although it has its hiccups. The game’s fast-paced nature and cinematic qualities, though, are quite good.
The game mixes original missions from Jason Bourne’s past with memorable moments from the film The Bourne Identity. In the process, players use Jason Bourne’s characteristic capabilities to recognize threats, perform takedown moves and use the environment to overcome deadly situations.
Developed by High Moon Studios, The Bourne Conspiracy introduces a combat system based on the fight choreography of Jeff Imada, the renowned fight stunt coordinator who defined Bourne-style combat in the films.
