GameSpy writes: Unlike many licensed game creators, however, developer High Moon Studios eschewed tradition in an attempt to carve out its own niche in the Bourne canon. Although there will probably be some fans that don't agree with the company's approach, High Moon didn't use Matt Damon's likeness for The Bourne Conspiracy, choosing instead to turn to the books in an effort to re-imagine the character. While this may not be the Jason Bourne we've all come to know and love over the last six years, make no mistake: he's still a complete and utter badass.
For the most part, The Bourne Conspiracy will mirror the events seen in the first film, in which our hero is fished out of the Mediterranean Sea with no memories of how he ended up there. You'll spend the game sorting out just what in the hell is going on, although (naturally) there aren't a lot of answers. One of the most interesting elements of the game is the fact that there are multiple flashback levels, while the film really only showed the events on Wombosi's yacht. This should help to flesh out the universe a bit, as seeing some of Jason's previous Treadstone Project will be a treat for fans of the franchise.
