  1. A blaze of fiendish difficulty and strategic brilliance. You're about to be sorted.
  2. There are so many options to earn -- like new levels, more continues, faster recharge on your special weapons – that you’ll find yourself playing over and over again just to see what’s next.

    If you're one of those gamers that constantly needs a challenge or if you're looking for something that'll test your gaming mettle, Mars Matrix might be up your shooting alley.
  4. It might not look great, but it's pure blasting entertainment.
  5. An excellent effort that no shooter fan should overlook. The gameplay is solid even if it is a little on the difficult side, the graphics are decent, it has excellent replay value, and the overall presentation is top notch.
  6. From start to finish, the game is a non-stop blast-a-thon. If you're a fan of the genre, you won't be disappointed.
  7. Plenty of depth if that's all you're looking for, but it's weighed down by an engine that would have been deemed outdated several years ago.
