    This was a playable game with some parts that were really difficult.The up-the-wall attack system and big levels really made it fun. What was best about this game was its presentation and story that integrated with the movies. You don't have a complete Matrix experience until you've played this game. While not everything was perfect in this on a technical level, I thought it was worth it overall. If you found it too hard, try a cheat code. If you don't like run-n-gun games then you probably shouldn't get this. I thought it was good enough to complete and I loved the levels. Compared to Ghost In The Shell: SAC game, this one didn't have as nice of camera and control. It is still better than a lot of PS2 games out there, and for Matrix fans this is a must play. Tip: Avoid Path of Neo, its worse than this one. OK game. Expand

    For a game based of a movie is good, very good beginning to the end, but the thrill won't last enough. The missions start feeling tired and dull, and the difficulty gets annoying but in the good way. The weapons shakes well and the graphics are simply bland, the story is messed up, never understood the freaking series, but thats fine. Get it if you have the luck to find it.

    This game was pretty satisfying, but it could have been much better. For one thing, the camera angles always seem to get you killed because their facing the wrong way when you engaged in combat. Also, the first person view when shooting was a complete disaster because you couldn't move; you just stuck shooting at the people. Also, the Agents are almost impossible to beat unless you can knock them off a ledge; otherwise, they just kill you in some way. The amount of guns and moves you could do/shoot with were cool, but it doesn't save this game from its faults. Expand

    Decent game. Combat was fun and recreated movies well.

    The terrible controls and no checkpoint system is why this game is getting a 5 from me. There's no doubt that this was rushed to release alongside Reloaded. Biggest complaint is two campaigns which basically follow the same plot. They should have stuck with one, but that's not the point, is it?

  1. Fans of action titles are almost certainly also big fans of The Matrix, and will be disconcerted by such a pallid tie-in.
  2. While Enter the Matrix ties in really well with the movie franchise, it isn’t much of a game.
  3. 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]
