Bond producer 'not super impressed' with The Bourne Conspiracy

Quantum of Solace's Senior Producer, Garrett Young, tells OXM that he was 'not super impressed' with The Bourne Conspiracy videogame.

Young also mentions that it's tough to make a movie videogame without being able to use the lead character, as Quantum of Solace does. (James Bond : Quantum of Solace, The Bourne Conspiracy, Xbox 360)

He was attempting that combination of tact and honesty. The problem is that utilizing tact begins with curving natural impulses and opinions - honesty. It rarely works out and if one is not careful it comes off as either dishonest or sarcastic.

What he should have said was, "The Bourne Conspiracy as a game was an abortion. The game mechanics were idiocy in motion. The fact that the character could look over a 3 foot box but not jump over it and instead had to travel hundreds of meters out of his way directly into danger was moronic at best. After all it is Bourne. Compared to some other things he did that were cinematic, not to let the player hop a box is just stupid.

The fighting controls were severely and cheaply limited and all for the purposes of unimaginative gameplay. The game ads kept saying you are Bourne but for the coolest moves in the game...you are NOT Bourne. Here is a lesson. Never let the AI do something the player can't do - unless of course the AI is superman. Letting AI fighters use combos impossible for the player is ripping the player off. Games should be fun and challenging, not an exercise in frustration.

Timed button presses? Please. Is this the Kratos Conspiracy? Even worse than the fighting. And the reload times when said button press is missed is inexcusable. There is a reason the Estate yanked the game rights and the game itself just stinks. Quantum of Solace will avoid the amateur mistakes made in building the Bourne game."

That is what he should have said.

What exactly do you mean by that statement?

During certain 'Action Moments" You have to hit a particular key (it changes every time) at just the precise moment. There is no warning this is going to happen. If you miss that key the game ends and has to reload. The fact is in GOW the game doesn't end until your health is gone which makes for a better and less frustrating experience.

Ohh okay..
The reason I ask is because I first seen this in Resident Evil 4 for the gamecube......I am not sure if it was in games before that, but my first experience was with Resident Evil 4...and it came out before the first GOW. Which would mean that The Bourne Conspiracy followed that game.....cause if you missed a button press you would also die.

Who cares about Bourne anyways?
Quantum Solace is gonna be one of the best games out this year.
