looks nice to me, but seems really repetitive...

There's some subtle product placement there ;)

Clunky animation, boring repetitive gameplay, and it looks too easy. Every game needs to have something DYNAMIC in it these days, and this game has nothing.

I finished it last weekend, it was fun.

From what I played it was good, but the fighting was kind of like a turn-taking game which turned me off because it would have been great to flight with fluid motion against tough opponents. I want it, but will probably just put in a trade request for it and wait.

I thought the same thing too, then I played it. It's not that it's not fun because there are some really cool moments but you honestly find yourself going, "If they only did this or that different" while you are playing. In many ways it's a third-person hand to hand to combat game so the game play mechanics should have been stellar.

Because Bourne doesn't miss by much you might still actually like it, but the point is it still missed being brilliant by just a few things. Things like a bit more complexity in Jason's animation, smarter AI and the need to mix things up for the boss battles. I found I was taking most bosses down with just a bit of timing.

It's still fun dc, but it could have been better.

There's nothing subtle about it all. lol

I guess we better get used to both ad and product placement in games because it's here to stay.

Never knew Jason Bourne was an ardent user of Mastercard. Bond uses what, Amex? :)

    Sdarts Oh, yeah, I just remembered. Papers, Please does something similar as well. Puts you in an unconfortable position. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Spec Ops: The Line does something similar, and I wish more games put you on that spot. Try to make you think: "WTF do I do?" and etc. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Decisions like that. If the game's story is really good, you actually feel the weight of them and how there's no "win" choice, just worse and even worse choices. Some books and movies try to convey it (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: Just hypothetical and nothing to do with the game: Do you blow a school full of children where a terrorist is hiding? Or let him go free to potentially kill thousands more innocents? (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @bleachedsmiles: I can't mention the scene in question without spoiling, but one option was almost impossible and the other was "easy" to do, but the "easy" one was something "monstrous". So values. (8 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: I don't know. The shooting felt off. It had mouse acceleration, which I hate. Cover wasn't fluid. But I loved the story. I also couldn't stand the voice of Drake in that setting. (8 Hours ago)
