X3F TV -- X3F Impressions: Bourne Conspiracy Demo

A few hours ago, Xbox Live Marketplace was treated to an early demo of The Bourne Conspiracy, the High Moon Studios developed title based on the best-selling novels by Robert Ludlum. We thought this was a great time to debut a feature X3F readers have asked us for in the past, video impressions of demos for retail Xbox 360 games.

Ordinarily we have a catchy (or what we think is catchy) name for our video features, but this time we drew a blank. Have an idea for what this feature should be called? Drop your name idea in the comments and tell us what you think of The Bourne Conspiracy demo yourself.

Bourne Conspiracy demo assassinates on XBLM

It's almost always nice to see a fresh demo pop up on Xbox Live Marketplace. Today is one of those days, thanks to a brand-spankin-new (and very early) demo for The Bourne Conspiracy from Sierra and High Moon. The demo clocks in at 1.2 gigabytes (yow) and promises "An intense, fast-paced, authentic experience." In other words, the demo promises about as much as your average Mexican restaurant. We've yet to put the demo through its paces, but we're eager to give it a try, as what we've seen of The Bourne Conspiracy so far has us intrigued though it hasn't managed to really excite us thus far. Here's hoping the demo paints a good picture of the game to come.

Bourne Conspiracy demo hits UK stores

While the rest of us wait for the May 19 demo of Sierra's Bourne Conspiracy action title to hit Xbox Live, UK gamers can snag the demo today at their local GAME store. While picking up his copy of Grand Theft Auto IV one of our loyal X3F soldiers was given the demo for the anticipated game based on the best-selling novels by Robert Ludlum. We've been vocal on our interest in the game so color us green with envy from the early demo, at least until it finally lands on the Marketplace later this month.

Bourne Conspiracy demo set for May 19th release

Earlier this month, High Moon Studios revealed that a punchy and limb breaking Bourne Conspiracy demo was planned for release to the XBLM sometime next month. Now, thanks to the magic of the internets and a what a few weeks time can bring, we can confirm via Eurogamer that the Bourne demo will be ready for download on Monday, May 19th. Exciting stuff that would be even more exciting if the franchise's main man Matt Damon was actually featured in the game ... SNAP!

New Bourne Conspiracy video is really punchy

GameTrailers has released a new gameplay video of The Bourne Conspiracy, one of the first to feature a non-stop section of pure gameplay (complete with a HUD this time). This video in particular shows off both the gunplay and melee combat of The Bourne Conspiracy and gives us some clues as to how it will all actually work. Thus far, Sierra has been keen to point out that the game would capture the brutal combat seen in the films, and what's on display in the video is definitely interesting.

Looking at the video, it seems like most of the really brutal moves are initiated as reversals or counters to attacks from the enemy, triggering a brief cinematic attack from Bourne. Beyond that, it looks like the moves actually performed by the player are limited to a few basic punches. Of course, we won't know exactly how it works until we lay our hands on a controller and play it, so we'll reserve judgment until the announced demo arrives next month. In the meantime, give the video a look and share your thoughts in the comments.

Bourne Conspiracy demo coming in May

Keep your eyes peeled, because Jason Bourne is coming to an Xbox Live Marketplace near you with confirmation from Vivendi that a Bourne Conspiracy demo is scheduled for release sometime in May. Possibly weeks before its June 3rd release. Though, take note that the demo is only scheduled for release to the U.S. XBLM as official confirmation for it to release to the European XBLM is still pending. Oh well, at least some violence-loving fanboys will be able to enjoy a hefty helping of Bourne next month.

The Bourne Conspiracy snaps bones on June 3

Sierra announced today that the upcoming book and film adaptation The Bourne Conspiracy will release on June 3 in North America. As discussed here before, the game features a mixture of hand-to-hand combat as well as run-and-gun action. We're sure gamers are interested in trying out the game or, as As Sierra's Al Simone puts it, "experience the dangerously exciting aura and frenetic pace inherent in the Bourne franchise." We'll see about that.

It's worth noting that Bourne will be making his video game debut on the same day as Microsoft's flagship action, (Game of the Year) Ninja Gaiden II. So, demon slaying super ninja or elbow cracking super spy? Decisions, decisions ....

The Bourne Conspiracy summer trailer proves not all spies are stealthy

While we continue to wonder how a licensed game can actually get us excited, we present to you the latest footage of Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy. Released by Sierra Entertainment and High Moon Studios earlier in the week, the trailer shows off the seamless use of weapons and hand-to-hand content. There is however one concern, if you watch the trailer it appears that a portion of the gameplay will in the form of timed-button sequences (like Spider-man 3's cineratives). While we can't say for sure, the explanation of the Escape and Evade system makes us think that will be the approach the game will take. But we can't get too worried about a game that lets players take someone out with a book.

Spies intercept Bourne Conspiracy cover art, new screens

Recently, High Moon Studios released fresh images for its upcoming novel-inspired third-person action game Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy. Maybe we should know better then to anticipate a licensed product, but the mix of 24: The Game action meets Uncharted: Drake's Fortune combat has us suspiciously craving an immediate hands-on with the upcoming Xbox 360 and PS3 game. While dreaming of modern-day ninja throwing a baddie from a moving airplane we stumbled to the wallpaper section of High Moon Studio's official website where one image was titled Xbox 360 Cover Art. The ten recently released images and apparent cover art wallpaper image can be found within.

Bourne Conspiracy trailer breaks limbs

Sierra has seen fit to release a new trailer for The Bourne Conspiracy, the upcoming title based on the book. Players take on the role of Jason Bourne, a super soldier of sorts who is talented in espionage and the breaking of wrists, elbows, knees, and whatever other bones you care to place in front of him. It's hard to tell how much -- if any -- of the footage contained in the trailer is actual gameplay, but parts appear to be recorded within the game engine, and it's looking very nice indeed. With The Bourne Conspiracy and Splinter Cell Conviction both releasing this year, it will be interesting to see how they fare against each other.
