    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. A pleasant surprise as it wisely lets the player be Neo, not some under-powered secondary character. [Jan 2006]
  3. The bullet-time, wall-hopping, Agent Smith-butt-kicking gameplay comes closer to matching the film's battles than any game before it.

    It's a fun beat-em up and a heck of a game. It has more hits than misses and is a definite rental for anyone looking to kill a weekend.
  5. It's worth putting up with the game's frustrating failures for the chance to defeat 100 Agent Smiths. [Jan 2006, p.68]
  6. It's the best Matrix game to date, but Matrix games still have a way to go.
  7. 50
    A turbulent ride between decent action, half-baked graphics and camera, and occasionally clunky, but undeniably authentic presentation.
