Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Now's your chance to take the red pill for real and Enter The Matrix--not simply a video game adaptation of the films but a whole new chapter in the Matrix saga. Indeed, the best thing about Enter The Matrix is the way it seamlessly connects with the three films, for although it's based on none of them directly, it allows you to play the role of either Niobe or Ghost (minor characters from The Matrix Reloaded) while running into the likes of Neo, Morpheus and Agent Smith as the game's story unfolds. Not only that but the story, as well as all the exclusive video footage, is written and directed by the films' creators, the Wachowski brothers.

The game itself is, somewhat predictably, a third-person shoot-'em-up not at all dissimilar to a more balletic version of Max Payne. It's somewhat surprising though, for such a high-profile game, to find the graphics are actually a little below par and the controls somewhat clunky, but generally it all looks and plays pretty well with all the classic Matrix-style slow-motion acrobatics relatively easy to pull off.

Easily the best bits of the game are the on-foot chase sequences, usually involving agents, which are actually rather tense and a great way to show off all the running and leaping powers you've mastered in the rest of the game. The worst bits are the car chases, especially if you play as Niobe and have to put up with the terrible car handling, instead of just hanging out the window and shooting as Ghost. Still, this is a decent game overall which, although unlikely to win any awards in itself, is sure to please most Matrix fans. --David Jenkins

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, but......... 28 May 2003
By M. Gardner VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
Enter the Matrix was meant to take movie tie-ins to a new level. The story runs parallel to that of the awesome film The Matrix Reloaded and it does fill in a few gaps where some may be baffled. You play the part of either Niobe or Ghost, and the game varies ever so slightly depending upon which one you choose. This raises my first complaint. The obvious main character would have been Neo. True, he has godlike status now, but who would really have passed up the opportunity to fly, fight 100 Agent Smiths at once and mix in heavy melee weaponry with a bit of Tae Kwon Do? There's no justice - you se it in the movie, but you can't do it in the game!I must confess, though, that initially the feeling is good. The first time you run up a wall using 'focus' and somersault off while firing an MP5 is greatly satisfying. After the 100th time however.....The hacking aspect is a welcome addition, allowing for the unlocking of cheats, FMVs and even a slightly mediocre multiplayer. The driving sections are a little disappointing it must be said except for the first few times one pilots the Logos. This may sound slightly unfair, but when one considers how long we had to wait for a Matrix game it seems frustrating that Shiny wheeled out a game with below par visuals and AI. The objective driven nature is slightly uninspiring, almost without urgency. If, however, one can forget about visuals, and excuse the AI, then the game can be a fairly enjoyable slice of escapism. The movies rewarded at the end are worth viewing, but i would advise a cheat book handy if you get bored of the repitition. a good game to sample therefore, but perhaps not the best one to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly brilliant 21 May 2003
Format:Video Game
Being a video game based on a movie, I have to admit that I was extremely cynical when I heard that a game tie-in to the matrix was being planned. Games such as Max Payne have used the bullet-time device used in the movies effectively, so I was expecting the same tired methods to be re-used in their entireity throughout the game.
I was wrong.
The action sequences in this game are fast-paced and entertaining, the kung-fu being displayed in this game looks fantastic, and the impacts upon the opponents cause realistic reactions (Aside from the whole bullet-time thing, obviously). Learning that Yuen Woo Ping, the choreographer from the matrix films (and a plethora of excellent kung-fu films), had a big say in the fighting sequences in the game was unsuprising, as almost every element of the game was personally overlooked by the Wachowski brothers.
The music in this game is awesome too, with the score from the movies being used to full effect to re-create the distinct atmosphere that the trilogy carry.
The script and voice-acting in this game is also fantastic, with the actors from the movies providing the voices, leading to a very cinematic feeling carried throughout the game. The script itself is not that of any of the movies, rather a completely new plot that runs alongside the events of the matrix: reloaded, which is refreshing compared to most movie tie-ins, which re-hash the same plot from the movies.
The graphics, while not being the best you could possibly see, are good, providing atmosphere, and suitably creating the sterile, clinical environments of the matrix, the ability to destroy pillars, windows, knocking things off desks is also fantastic too.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as you would hope 17 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
Let me start of by saying ,Iam a big matrix fan and was looking forward to buying this game. I was fairly certain this was going to be a quick cash in movie title,and subsequently a little rought around the edges. I put aside my doubts and brought it all the same.
you game is all well and good as you load it up nice animations ,but the shocking completely un-user friendly menu was a sorry sign of this to come.
the graphics are actually not that bad, it's the shockingly bad textures which really let it down. the ku-fu animation is nice and smooth and fits well with the normal running around. however some animation namely the fast run and fence climbing is horrible.there is no sense of movement
The controls also are nasty to use, a lock on system has been insterted which makes shooting difficult.incedently the shooting is naff anyway and pales in comparrison to max payne or vice city
the bullet time/focus is a nice touch but is no where near as good as max payne or jedi knight.
frankly this game is poor it feels rushed, thrown out to tie in with the film, and what the hell are the driving parts about! I always think, do one thing well or do many things badly. that is what I think happened here. it just has a turok poor conversion feel to it. such a good concept done badly.
I think even the devlopers knew it was poor since no magazine could get a review before it's release. so no reviews where avalible.<BR

4.0 out of 5 stars Enter the Matrix 25 Jun. 2006
By Dave Kraven VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Set behind the scenes of The Matrix Reloaded, you can play as Niobe (played by Jada Pinkett-Smith) or Ghost (played by Anthony Wong) as they're given tasks to complete whilst Neo and the others are busy somewhere else. This is a clever premise; as it reveals some of the answers to the plot holes that were noticeable in the movies, giving us a good idea of what's happening in the background. The visuals (and "Bullet-Time" effects) look stunning, the action sequences are brilliant and the voice-over's professional which is what you'll expect from Hollywood's direction but it's heavily marred by uninspiring driving sections and the ill-concieved Logos ending level. Still, if you a die-hard Matrix fan then definitely have a go but for others, just rent it.
