Truthfully, I did not very much like this game. I don't believe this ruins anything but all the same play the demo first. If you have played the demo at all, you might understand what I have to write. My favorite part of the game was the driving even though I hate racing games.I need to make a couple of things clear first. Number one, I am partial against shooters. Number two, I am still annoyed that this game is based on the first book as opposed to the entire three book series and the name lead me to believe. All that aside, I am pretty sure it might rock some peoples world but be warned that the likelyhood of you being in the very minute percentage of gamers is highly improbable. I got this game on it's release day and then got started. I was impressed by the surprising long first mission but no sooner had it really gotten into it had I realized that all of it's finer points were all revealed in the demo. You have adrenaline takedowns which make you so glad for the first fifty times but you can only the same takedown so many hundred times before you want to do a takedown on your console itself. It gets extremely repetitive. If you play Halo or gears of war, you know it is a shooter and you enjoy the adrenalin rush. The same goes for Ninja Gaiden and devil may cry. Those are slashers and if they have nothing else to their names, you know that you still get that satisfaction for the bloodlust you felt before playing. For bourne, it felt like home work. the only reason why I beat it was because of a bet. I would recommend it to everyone to rent. Definitely a rentable not not to be bought. I traded my copy.

this game is your normal run of the mill Hollywood Trash Video Game. I can't even force myself to get past the 3rd level...
Hand to hand fighting consists of 2 buttons... That's right folks Jason Bourne's awesome fighting techniques dumbed down to just 2 buttons, well 3 if you count the "block" button. I almost wanted to cry.
The shooter aspect of the game is not bad but also far from good. Just normal and boaring... and if I have a gun why can't I use it instated of having to fight 3/4 of the guys hand to hand when i could just shoot them?
And the attempt at sneering around is just a joke... Not much more I can say there. Normaly even a bad game is a good rental, you know, keep you busy for an afternoon or until you just can't take it anymore. This happened for me after about 30min. Just avoid this and any other game named after a movie...
You all know if we the customer stop buying Hollywood's Trash games they might stop making them... Wishful thinking on my part I know, but I'm getting tired of seeing great characters, plots and idea's turn out so bad.
At first this game feels fresh and new, something a little different then all the run and gun shooters out there. But after the first level or so you begin to realize something...the controls are horrible. And that is when you'll put down your controller and never come back. Its a shame because this could have been a great game, but the controls are just clumsy and the camera angle is horrible. Don't waste your time with this one.
