    The Matrix vibe is in full effect, and I can give you my personal guarantee that you won't be able to put it down until you've seen all the new footage. [June 2003, p.100]

    All is not perfect in Enter the Matrix, but for its few flaws, the game delivers what it is meant to: a very convincing experience inside The Matrix that looks, smells, and feels like... The Matrix. [July 2003, p.76]
  3. Yet another licence that fails to deliver in the same way as its celluliod counterpart but a tasty, violent adventure nonetheless. [PSM2]
  4. Every single kung-fu move that I had hoped I could perform, I can. Every single slow motion cinematic I had hoped would be present, certainly is. And every single story detail I could have hoped for is present and accounted for.
  5. Hardcore Matrix fans will definitely love this game and find it everything they expected. For everyone else, ETM won't be anything more than an average game that seems too similar to many other titles already out there.
  6. When we hear the words “movie” and “license” we automatically start sharpening knives. In this case we were to busy moistening to the sight of total and unashamed gun-porn to want to draw blood. Yes, we feel ashamed.
  7. The game is by no means a weak attempt to cash in on a franchise...Gamers not only get tons of extra movie action but also get to run, kick, and shoot in a fully realized Matrix universe.

    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.

    Wants to be so many different games that it doesn't excel at any one of them. [13 June 2003]

Remember it having pretty neat gamplay, neat controls, good characters and a pretty good story. Really captured the feel of the real film with the emphasis on the focus mode and the new abilities that were granted when you start that up. A solid game with a few great moments. Full Review »

Pero podemos decir que fue un juego realmente pobre en todo los apartados . Full Review »
