The main draw for me in playing a Bourne game is to feel like a bad-ass and pull off ninja-like moves with Jason Bourne-like finesse. In that regard, the game delivers 100%. Boring button-mashing hand to hand combat is polished with take-down moves which can be performed once the stamina meter builds up. Pressing B will activate a take-down move on the current enemy, which uses whatever objects and environments are nearby. This means that even if you're fighting someone in a small room, your take-down move can vary from slamming his head into the glass of a window, throwing him into a wall, or grabbing a screwdriver from a tool chest and stabbing the enemy multiple times in the arm."
