3.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, but........., 28 May 2003
This review is from: Enter the Matrix (GameCube) (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.
