I've read the books and seen the movies and and deeply saddened by the halfa$$ed attempt at recreating the feel of the character Jason Bourne. The game isn't all bad, the takedowns are brutal and the physics make them have a real weight to every punch, kick, and head slamming into the edge of a concrete wall, but the combat is too thin to justify the character.
Jason Bourne is a dynamic fighter and a person should feel like Bourne because they're fighting dynamically, however, fights are great early on as your discover new combos and see nice takedowns. But there isn't a lot of depth and you start doing the same couple comboes the entire game. Being Bourne you'd kind of expect far more variety in how you control the beatdown. In this game you really throw a few combos, press a button then let the game do the rest. Satisfying only for eye candy. Not a $60 game.
Next is the horrible shooting. Not merely the mechanics, but shooting in general. Unless you can find a way to line up those tough head shots, you'll find yourself unloading half a clip of an automatic weapon into a single enemy. Kevlar or not, if you shoot anyone more than 5 times they should be going down.
And last but not least the game is about a 6 level romp that can easily be finished in a single sitting for even a novice gamer. It isn't even nearly as long as it could be, and it's storyline doesn't even make sense in some instances with the stoic voice actor playing Bourne barely registering the slightest emotion even when Bourne is supposed to be angry.
The potential lost in this game is kinda depressing as it would've been so cool to do the crowded train station scene where you cover a hapless reporter, swiftly taking out enemy agents before they can kill him. Or even delving deeper into Bourne's pre-Treadstone past that only the books truly elaborated on.
All in all it's not a very bad game, it just isn't full enough to warrant more than a rental.
