    The action, from top to bottom, may be built on a foundation made of stylish maneuvers, cool martial arts, and slick gunplay. But when you try and jam all of that into a poorly performing beast of a game with some atrocious mechanics and an utterly agonizing camera, it just loses most of that appeal.
  2. The game's story isn't strong enough to stand on its own, and the gameplay simply doesn't save it, making the game worth a look for hard-core fans of The Matrix films, but a buggy disappointment for just about anyone else.

    You barely exchange two sentences to Trinity, and she ignores almost everything you say in favor offering pre-scripted responses before quickly dumping you back to the hacking interface.

    The more you play this half-baked sack of pixels, the more you become convinced that there is no The Matrix game, and the only thing being played here is you.

    Take away the Matrix setting, and you're left with an action game that really does nothing new - and looks pretty average doing it. [Aug 2003, p.64]
  6. ETM has a solid combat system that's addictive at times, but the game doesn't offer any gripping features that might increase its replayability. Also, it's mostly linear throughout the entire course of the plot.
  7. It works, and it’s playable, but its remarkable fighting isn’t enough to pull it out of the mire labelled average.

    Play it for the movies, don't play it for the play. [Aug 2003, p.84]
  9. Enter the Matrix isn't a perfect slice of interactive entertainment, but it does provide at least a dozen hours of action-packed fun and serves as a clever vehicle to expand on the events in "The Matrix Reloaded."
  10. An average game, but I really like the film footage.
  11. For the inability to save at any point, for obtuse camera and fighting controls, for subpar level design, for irritating crash and sound bugs, and for the failure to make any effort to improve the technology behind this console port, “Matrix” enjoys the dubious distinction of a Rotten Egg award.

    A bit rough around the edges. Definately does not live up to the hype. Still, fun to play for the first few levels.
