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

4.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere near perfect but still great fun 2 Jun 2003
Format:Video Game
This is certainly a game which seems to have divided opinions down the middle; half of the people who’ve played it say it’s the best thing since sliced bread, whilst the other half say that it’s a rush-released mess. Personally, I tend towards the first group, though the game is not without it’s criticisms. Firstly, some of the animation is less than impressive. The action of Ghost running at full speed or climbing a ladder simply looks stupid. There are some problems with clipping and enemies disappearing behind walls and the like. And the difficulty level is pretty low, with a few hard sections seemingly tacked on to ensure the gamer does not complete the game first time. However, for me, these problems are all overshadowed by the diabolical driving sections. Mercifully, they’re pretty scarce, but if you’ve played a decent Xbox racer liker Project Gotham or SGT2002, you won’t believe your eyes. Driving games on the PSX wipe the floor with this. The graphics are poor, the handling terrible and the enemy AI is simply non-existent. Not good enough, Atari.
The good parts to this game really are good, though. The hand to hand fighting and shootouts incorporating the use of bullet time are both huge fun and deeply satisfying. The plot, with extra scenes filmed especially for the game, weaves in and out of that of The Matrix Reloaded film, and fills in some of the background missing from it (an intention of the Wachowski brothers) and as such is both convoluted and interesting.
In conclusion, then, I would most certainly recommend this game to those hardcore, obsessive fans of the Matrix series who unfortunately exist, and seem to believe everything in the film is fact.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a shame, it could have been so much more 17 May 2003
Format:Video Game
Let me put this bluntly: "Enter the matrix" is not a ground-breaking game, its not an imensly original game nor is it at the height of visual detail.
Saying that however, its not a 'bad game', its just not what you would expect from the Matrix brand name. I guess its no different from any other film-to-game type scenario, wherby the game is nothing more than a promotional tool with uninspiring (and not often unexceptional) gameplay.
Enter the Matrix has all the things you would 'expect' it to have such as 'bullet time' (first implemented in Max Payne), kung-fu style fighting (as well as your average gun combat). If your a fan of the Matrix brand, and have money to spare, its not a bad game to own, but as I have said before, its nothing to jump up and down about.
There are two major flaws in this game you should know about when purchasing (or perhaps not perchasing?) it. First is the graphics, they arent terrible, but they arent remarkable either.. they are sub-par. Secondly is the physics engine; for a game that is based around bending the rules of nature it would make sense that the rules to begin with were properly implemented, but alas this is not so -- for example, I crashed head first into another car and the vehicle I was driving when floating about as if it was filled with helium.
My final verdict? leave it be, there are much better games available for your hard-earned money,

4.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but I've seen better!! 29 May 2003
Format:Video Game
When you think of games which are related to films you normally think of either great games, like Goldeneye, or poorly made titles like Star Wars. With Enter the Matrix you get a mixture of the two.
It would be a crime to say that this game is poor. The game features good gameplay, great cinematic clips and a good storyline. You also have the great bulletime mode which betters the excellent one on Max Payne.
On the PS2 and Gamecube this game is good, but on Xbox you feel a bit short changed. The game is made for the PS2 and when making it for Xbox the producers hardly bettered the graphics. Due to this the Xbox is producing choppy, bitty graphics. Hardly the quality of Splinter Cell.
There is also the fact that the game is small and can be completed quickly.
The thing which drew me to this game was the bullet time mode. It allows you to slow down time and do amazing moves like walking up walls. You can also do some neat kung - fu. So is this a good game or not. Overall it's a good game, allowing you to play as in the matrix doing some great tricks and stunts. If you like Max Payne, it's a buy. If you like a good stoot 'em up, buy it. If you like a look game with a heavy storyline, think twice about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What is the matrix.......like? 16 May 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
The first matrix game to be released on any consol and it has to be said that it is good but....
Good points: Smooth gameplay with 2 characters to choose from.
Martial arts have been directed by yuen wo ping, man who does it for the film.
script written by the wachowski brothers.
Easy to use controls.
very simular to the film.
actors voices for the films done for the game.
feels like the matrix.
Bad:
some mission feel pointless.
cant play as who you would like to be.
this is a good game because its very enjoyable but it feels like a cross between Max payne and True crime. The game is greatly presented with good sounds and a good variety of missions, some driving, running from agents, collecting packages and general combat.But not being able to play as Neo, Morpheaus or Trinity makes it a bit of a let down.
Final advice: buy this game if your looking for a good action packed game but find out as much about the game before you buy it or you could be dissapointed.
