  • Summary: Enter the Matrix features awesome gunplay and spectacular martial arts that bend the rules of the Matrix, insane driving and stunts, and the chance to pilot the fastest hovercraft in the fleet. This game isn't just set in the Matrix universe--it's an integral part of the entire Matrix experience, with a story that weaves in and out of The Matrix: Reloaded, the second chapter of the movie trilogy. Enter the Matrix is the story behind the story. Collapse

  1. Merely an okay game that benefits greatly from its movie license. [June 2003, p.106]
  2. Its game play suffers from repetition, but this two-disc technomelange has tons of great stuff for "Matrix" fans. [July 2003, p.142]
  3. Seems to split its aim between hardcore "Matrix" fans and experienced gamers; if you find yourself with a foot in both camps, you may well find this one of the most faithful movie-to-game experiences in recent memory.
  4. The game could be better if the control were tighter and some of those driving missions were more fun, but for what it is Enter The Matrix is enjoyable for all the right reasons.
  5. While Enter the Matrix ties in really well with the movie franchise, it isn’t much of a game.
  6. 60
    Somewhere along the way, someone forgot to implement the core of any action game: comfortable controls.
  7. 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.

    As a 9-year old, I enjoyed playing Enter the Matrix back in Christmas 2003. I was so good at playing action video games like Zelda, Starcraft and this. Expand
