Based on the Robert Ludlum books,the new game sees you taking control of Jason Bourne, the former CIA assassin with almost superhuman abilities.
Having played the demo recently made available on the Playstation Network, I have to say this looks pretty impressive.
There are 3 levels of the game for you to try, my favourite has to be the level set inside the embassy which is a race against the clock to escape the authorities.
The combat system is very slick, there are two main buttons used for attacks,tapping the triangle or square button causes Bourne to punch his opponent while holding the same buttons will cause him to unleash a kick. The most devastating attack you can pull off is available once your adrenaline level (which increases as you fight) reaches a critical point and you can let rip with a ‘Takedown’ move which sees Bourne slamming his opponent into any handy piece of scenery that happens to be nearby, and if your adrenaline reaches the maximum level you can perform multiple takedowns on more than one adversary.
The two other two levels involve:
A)chasing a criminal through a subway system which was a weapons based mission, and although fun, didn’t have quite the same appeal as the hand to hand combat in the earlier level.
and B) A car chase level in which you have to try to evade the police.
