  1. The implementation here is nearly a complete waste, considering the richness of the universe involved. Lousy controls, sterile and anemic environments, and weaksauce driving environments all pull down the good work done in the sound, character graphics and new footage departments.
  2. It's blatantly obvious that this game isn't quite finished... While it does have its moments and diehard Matrix fans will drool over the extra videos, this game receives the blue pill.
  3. In more than 20 years of playing games, I have never seen a console game as obviously unfinished and rushed to market as Enter the Matrix...This game is a complete mess, and that's the only complete thing about it. [Aug 2003, p.114]

    The game's one saving grace is the hand-to-hand fighting. It feels good to beat the crap out of people, straight up. [Aug 2003, p.27]

However, the bestI got this game for my Gamecube when I was 14 and I just loved it. Yes, you would like to play as Neo, in the beginning. However, the best feature of it is that it makes you feel vulnerable. This is The Matrix, and you are just an intruder. You are able to dominate some tricks, some simple enemies. But you gotta run from an Agent Smith or you're dead, just like in the movie.
    Some years later, I played Matrix: The Path of Neo. I got very disappointed, and I prefer by far Enter the Matrix.

The game takes place during the second installment of theEnter the matrix gives the perspective of two side characters, Niobe and Ghost. The game takes place during the second installment of the matrix series, matrix reloaded, taking you from the classic "Morpheus falls off the truck and onto the car" to destroying the power plant to help Neo get to the "father of the matrix." This will also explain why the Logos was downed in the third installment, Matrix Revolution. Full Review »
