Excerpt: "Enter the Matrix begins where 'Final Flight of the Osiris' (an Animatrix film) ends and joins up with Matrix Reloaded once into the game. You play as either Niobe or Ghost with your first task being to retrieve a package from a post office which as you'll expect isn't as simple as it sounds. The appeal of the game, at least to me, was the fight style combined with bullet time. Unfortunately the game does not pull off either particularly well. ...
Excerpt: "At first hand, 'Enter the Matrix' (EtM) sounds like one of the more interesting film tie ins. Developed at the same time as the last two Matrix films, with input from the Wachowski brothers as well as other Matrix personnel, it should have shaped up to be something a bit special. Like my attempts at cooking, the result does not do justice to the ingredients used. The game takes place at the same time as Matrix Reloaded and just after the Animatrix ...
Pros: More Matrix story, exclusive extra footage, sounds and music taken from the films .

Summary: When I picked this game up I thought it was gonna be a narative and visual feast. MY GOD WAS I WRONG! The gameplay is all run and gun, the graphics are absent, It locked up on me 15 times in 1 hour and it has no redeeming qualities. Hollywood sucks as do The 2 matrix sequels.
Summary: I am running an advanced machine and so the only flaw I had was a loss of the cross hairs as I played, which wouldn't be a big issue if the third person game play didn't make it impossible to shoot. I was able to resort to using martial arts. But in all honesty I felt that this game had a hitman 1 quality in its game play. Well intentioned...but ultimately failed. Better off getting max payne 2 and actually getting fun game play and a decent story.

Summary: You can play as either Niobe (Morpheus' former lover) or the Kirkegaard-quoting Ghost (her gunner aboard the Logos, who (in one of the game's only humorous moments, identifies onanism as his personal philosophy). While the two characters' storylines intersect, there are segments in which each character has different tasks to do.
This game should have never seen the light of day.

Summary: This is one of THE worst games ever. The graphics are terrible, the controls are worse, audio can't be any more pathetic. I bought this the day it came out. It was THE biggest waste of 50 bucks ever! Many of the levels are poorly designed, and the proctection missions become impossible at times. The animation is terrible. The FMV's couldn't get any worse. Do not buy this game.
Summary: i am a big fan of the matrix trilogy and i would like to say that this game sucks i bought it beat it and returned it in less then a week. there is nothign worse then this game, dont buy it unless you want to just find out info.
Summary: I love the movies, and the Reloaded movie has a review of this game. In the review they tell you there is an extra hour of video you can get no other way. So, even though I do not like this type of game I bought it anyway. I hoped I could make my way though the game well enough to get to the video. I could not. I made my way through a bunch of lame action and then got trapped on a plane with an agent. But it didn't start there. The install process was horrible as well.
Summary: I'll be completely honest with you, the only part I enjoyed is the 'hacking' section, which doesn't last long. I just found the rest of the game to be dull, or positively boring. First off, the graphics are horrid. Remember that great scene in the first Matrix where it was the first time you ever saw an agent dodge bullets? Remember how cool that looked? In the game he just kind of leans to one side while a shiny rock thuds against the wall next to him.
