Excerpt: We all know how fast the gaming industry is growing and prognosis are that it will keep on growing along with the expansion of Information Technology to the so-called “Developing and Third World countries”.
Excerpt: Rather than make a game based directly on the events of the original Matrix movie and the sequel Matrix Reloaded , the Wachoski brothers directed Shiny to make a game set to expand the universe while paralleling and even crossing over with events of the Matrix Reloaded .
Pros: Great story that augments the movies, Tons of Matrix-style action and combat, Large locations, Live action footage is wonderful
Cons: Camera could be better in tight spaces, Some rough edges on the character models, Flight levels feel tacked on
Excerpt: Upon first look at this game I became worried. After all, it was being sold as "an integral part of the entire Matrix experience". Call me skeptical, but I was getting concerned that this was just a marketing ploy to cash in on people’s obsession with the Matrix.
Conclusion: In light of that (and the sales of three million on a wave of hype), I think the final conclusion is that it is fun and action packed, with some excellent features, but it is still a film spin-off.
Pros: Broke new ground and sales records for film tie-ins
Cons: Matrix fever is over and may end up in Ultimatrix Boxset
Summary: Enter The Matrix should have been kept in development for a couple more months, and possibly been released with the third movie in November. It's a good game that has some flaws but fans of the movies will likely forgive them for the opportunity to do some slo-mo damage..
Conclusion: Meine Gefühle für das Spiel gehen weit auseinander. Einerseits ist es eine zusätzliche Geschichte zu meiner geliebten Filmreihe. Andererseits ist die Umsetzung mehr als laienhaft, wenn man vom hervorragenden Soundtrack und genialen Filmsequenzen absieht.
