The Gamers Temple reports:
''The Bourne Conspiracy is interesting in that it is a movie game that really is not, but manages to be more of a movie game than most others. Let me explain. There have been three Bourne movies so far, but if you've been paying attention you'll know that none of them have carried the title "The Bourne Conspiracy". That is because the game is not directly based on any of the movies, although it shares a few of their story elements. You'll also notice that Matt Damon is nowhere to be found in the game; something very rare indeed for a movie-related game, but a decision that makes it easier for you to feel as if you are playing as Bourne himself rather than as Matt Damon playing as Jason Bourne.
So that's how it's not a movie game, but what about it being more of a movie game than most? Well, the game's designers have a firm grip of cinematography and everything from camera angles to the lighting is expertly chosen to create a compelling visual experience. This is one of those things that if it's done right you don't notice it at all unless you take the time to pause and appreciate it. Since this is a fast-paced action game it isn't easy to do that, but it certainly adds to the game's immersion factor even though most gamers won't be able to put their finger on why this is the case. Now this is all well and good, but it doesn't mean much to gamers if the game's not fun to play. Anyone who's played Lair could tell you that "looks pretty, plays ugly" does not make for a fun game, so let's take a look at the gameplay and see if the game's fun to play.''
