I love these films. And when I saw some of the promo stuff with the developers talking about capturing the essence of Bourne where they looked and sounded very unenthusiastic, I stayed well clear. Where Bourne is a superior and more intelligent entity in the cinema, in gaming he's lagging way behind as it looks like they've made a bad attempt at copying the 'Bond sense/moment' gimmick.Hopefully EA'll get back on track with their new Daniel Craig Bond game. They need a real success after their last lacklustre effort. This review just reasserts how hideous the transition from screen to console often is, and strangely action games that dream up their own universe, whilst being influenced by films like MGS and GTA, just ooze cinematic spectacle.
Pretty much as I expected really, all these movie related games end up disappointing.I also believe that basing a game on a movie severely limits creativity as the developers are restricted to following too many set parameters.
Updated: We hope you own all of these already
