3.0 out of 5 stars Probably for Matrix Fans only 28 Aug 2005
When I heard that this game was to be released, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I really love the Matrix trilogy, and the idea of this game seemed great - to expand on the story told in Matrix Reloaded, with real new footage shot on the set of the film, seen through the eyes of Niobe and Ghost. The thought of the Matrix world recreated on the PC was exciting, and the insane fight moves seen in the films seemed perfect for a video game.
My first impressions of the game were not good - the options menus for adjusting sound and video settings were extremely difficult to use, and they just got in the way, when all I wanted was to get started. My opinions on the graphics were mixed - they aren't very realistic, but they do a fair job of recreating the animated look of the films, and the characters do look quite like their bigscreen counterparts. Unfortunately its almost always too dark, and there is alot of clipping and flickering to distract you still further. The environments themselves aren't bad, and reflect the film locations pretty well, although the graphics are an issue again at times, and you often feel as if there is nothing to interact with - no moveable/interesting objects.
The biggest problem for me by far though is the control system, which is badly thought out and intrusive. It is difficult and time-consuming to select weapons, and the aiming system is terrible - so that no matter how much you practice, you will still spray bullets everywhere, wasting time and ammo. The controls become most frustrating during the "driving" levels - the physics are embarrassing, and the clumsy controls simply add to the impression that someone else is in charge of your vehicle - it sometimes seems more luck than anything else that gets you through these levels.
