Would fans of the film swing by and give it a shot for nostalgia's sake, hoping to relive their past enjoyment? Could the game be better than other movie-based properties due to the freedom granted by not having to release day-and-date with its silver-screen counterpart? Does having the folks who helped make the movies work on the game make it any more believable? These are all questions High Moon set to answer when it created The Bourne Conspiracy.
Conspiracy is based on the films, which are in turn based on the books written by Robert Ludlum. You play as Jason Bourne, an amnesiac who quickly discovers he is fluent in a dozen languages and knows how to fight in a manner befitting a Shaolin warrior. Conspiracy picks up at roughly the same point as the first movie, The Bourne Identity, though it fills in a little of the backstory of the events leading up to the opening of the film. Bourne takes part in an aborted assassination mission, and ends up shot and floating in the ocean, left for dead. Luckily for him, a fishing boat happens by and scoops him out of the water, patches him up, and sends him on his way to try and figure out who he is and why someone wants him dead."
