Summary: I keep seeing honest reviews on this site and then within an hour someone goes and gives a 5 star review which incidentally focuses on all of the same attributes that the press release focuses on. I for one, find this suspect. What gamers really put so much stock in the story? This is the kind of marketing hype that the publishers use to cover up weakness in the gameplay (remember Lost World).
Excerpt: I loved the Matrix films. When this game came out I was expecting a lot. Unfortunately I was disappointed. The game is a rush job trying to get released to earn as much money as possible without thinking about us the consumer. They really have skimped on every aspect of the game. The graphics aren't too hot. Scenery is not detailed, characters lack detail and the movement of the characters is not fluid. You really would expect more from a PS2 game.
Summary: I was really looking forward to Reloaded, Revolutions and this. Being an avid games player I was really itching to run around the "real" world, taking care of the police, dodging agents and jumping in mid-air whilst firing two Uzis in bullet time. And I got my wish with Streets of LA a year later. Unfortunately, THIS game's garbage.
Summary: What is to say about this [weak] excuse for a video game? NOTHING! It's possibly the most boring game I've ever played, and when you use cheats it FREEZES! Not fun. You just go around shooting people and finding doors. There is no strategy to this game, the only thing remotely close to it is using focus to dodge bullets, which runs out in about 10 seconds. I don't get what all the hype is about this game. There is nothing good about it.
Yeah everybody likes it, and the everybody are blind

Summary: If you don't care about graphics, story, realism, or sound you'll love this game. Here is the truth. The graphics are clunky, the wall textures bland, and ugly (some belong on the PS1), and when driving or rail shooting out of a car, the enviorement is so bad, it looks like they spend a whole minute on it. Dissapointing really The story you'd think would be top notch, but it doesn't make a lick of sense until you actually see the movie.
Summary: I had a dream that I was stuck in this world where a bunch of people were trying to cram overly pretensious BS about whether or not this world was real and flashing eye popping SFX in my face to dazzle me but it was only to make it easier for them to raffle thru my pockets. But luckly I woke up out of their Matrix and returned to REALITY. I am so furious!!! This game [is terrible]! Even for a Matrix fan!
Summary: Ich war von den Matrix Filmen durch weg begeistert und nachdem ich gehört habe das dieses Spiel durch weg gute Noten bekommen hat habe ich keinen Moment gezögert es mir zu Kaufen. ABER Die Grafik ist ein Witz, Für Playstation 1 wäre die Grafik noch Angemessen. Nachkämpfe in diesem Spiel erinnern eher an Tekken (Butten Smashen).
50 Millionen für Antimatrix oder wie werde ich 60� los!

Summary: Was ein misst. Die ca. 50 Mio. Entwicklungskosten für Matrix"the Game" sind ihre 60€ Kaufpreis nicht wert. Stupide ballereien noch blödere Autofahrten samt peinlichem Grafikstil. Texturen sehen aus wie mein Kompost im Garten. Wände und Charaktere lassen sich hin und wieder sogar durchwandern.
Summary: Bei "Enter the Matrix" sieht man wieder überdeutlich wie viel Geld man bei einer Spielproduktion umsonst rauswerfen kann. Und alles nur weil die Firmen immer wieder von den Publishern gedrängt werden rechtzeitig fertig zu werden. Das Spiel ist an vielen Stellen noch unfertig und hässlich. Schon allein die Figurenbewegungen lassen einem einen kalten Schauer über die Schultern laufen. Überall wird verklickert "... WOW das teuerste Spiel das je produziert wurde".
