Throughout the game, the path the player takes to resolve each scenario and the resulting consequences are scripted and directed by the Wachowski Brothers. The likenesses of all of the films' key actors -- including Keanu Reeves ("Neo"), Laurence Fishburne ("Morpheus"), Carrie-Ann Moss ("Trinity), and Hugo Weaving ("Agent Smith") -- are featured in the game, which also includes footage from all three feature films, as well as "The Animatrix."

    Shockingly enough, is actually pretty damn good. Sure, it looks uglier than Ernest Borgnine in a tutu, and trying to use the controls is like operating the Space Shuttle while wearing oven mitts, but once you get the hang of it, beating the Stove Top stuffing out of agents is terrific fun.
  2. For every fault there's another brilliant set-piece or fight just around the corner to make up for it. The game captures the essence of the films, including all the most memorable set-pieces. [PSW]
  3. Practically every Matrix moment has been tucked up this game’s sleeve. It may not a solid fighting game or as fluid as it could be, but Path of Neo will still satisfy the diehard Matrix fans, if there are any left.

    Even though it is difficult to master, I highly recommending trying to punch through as best as you can, especially if you are a fan of the trilogy, because there is nothing cooler than fighting a horde of Agent Smiths while realizing you're the one in control.
  5. Roughly six years ago, the man known as Morpheus once said that to know the path is different from walking the path. To all Matrix fans, gamers, and fellow human beings, please take the following advice: steer clear of the Path of Neo.

    The core of the game is simply a fun, great looking button-mashing brawler, and there's a good time to be had with it if that's all you expect.

    A real slap across the face to Matrix fans. Do yourselves a favour and take the blue pill.

    You know, I just dont get it. how can a matrix fan not love this game...you are controlling the matrix!...you are playing neo. all the jazz You know, I just dont get it. how can a matrix fan not love this game...you are controlling the matrix!...you are playing neo. all the jazz of the film, for you to enjoy.amazing graphics, great moves, great story (obviously). it is becoming a trend for people to trash good games because they are just too spolied and stupid to enjoy what is there, so they focus on what is not there. i can nag about this game being bad because there is no golfing in it...what kind of a standard is this? if you think matrix is lame...don't buy the game that says "matrix" on its cover...its that simple. anyway...this is not a rental like some idiot below suggested...go buy it, its a masterpiece.

    The Wachowsky brothers wanted the ending not to be lame, and they did it... it was lamer than they could've expected, that final boss was too easy and it was the most boring final fight EVER.

    I have my playstation 2 just to play this video game... Had I known it was so boring and repetitive, I would've modded my console and downloaded it.
