    The worst thing about this game is the terrible level design, which is actually worse than it was in Enter The Matrix (and that's saying something). Every level contains a hundred locked doors, one room and one corridor, which are then repeated over and over again like a glitch in a particularly lazy Matrix. The levels are pushed forward by lame scripted moments, and the game seems The worst thing about this game is the terrible level design, which is actually worse than it was in Enter The Matrix (and that's saying something). Every level contains a hundred locked doors, one room and one corridor, which are then repeated over and over again like a glitch in a particularly lazy Matrix. The levels are pushed forward by lame scripted moments, and the game seems hell-bent on making everything as unnecessarily complicated as possible (partly because the 'Focus Jump" command is so damn unresponsive). Don't even get me started on those pathetic training levels- how many Asian movies do the Wachowski's have to rip off before they're satisfied? Who would think as game that let you play as Neo could be so mind-numbingly boring? I'll stick with the blue pill for now. Expand

    At first, combat seems too twitchy and simplistic, while the training sequences last too long, but as you grow in power, and unlock your substantial latent wealth of special moves and combination plays, the rich combat possibilities reveal themselves.
  2. A Matrix game that FINALLY got it right. You're able to pull off all the cool moves and abilities that Neo possesses, including fighting off hundreds of Smiths at once, pole and all. With great graphics and great controls, this title will definitely impress with the first and second play through.

    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.
