Summary: I am honestly a Matrix fan. specifically the first film, but the other two are a lot of fun nonetheless. This game was brilliant in its position as part of the storyline, showing events taking place aside from the the film. Even getting actual actors to reprise their roles was a stroke of genius. however that trait alone gave this game the two stars i have awarded it. First of all, its a third person action game, similar to tomb raider/max payne/etc.

Summary: At first, I found myself throughly enjoying enter the matrix, but after just 3 or 4 missions, I realized that gameplay consists of a simple pattern: walk into a room, kill everyone there, next room, same thing, end level. Sounds like alot of games, but enter the matrix really just doesn't have enough to it.
Summary: This is, in my absolute unbiased opinion, an embarrassment to video gaming. Although I suppose if I was more into action games, rather than a hard-core RPGer, I might like it more. Many of my friends and relatives have purchased this game on various systems, including PC, and out of all of them, only one was actually satisfied with the purchase. As for me, I played it for about fifteen minutes and turned it off.
Summary: It has always seemed strange to me that Japan dominates the video game market, both commercially and creatively. All of the major companies originate in the Land of the Rising Sun. Completing a game rewards the player with (usually) a visual feast and (without exception) a credits roster filled with Japanese names.
Summary: I don't usually write reviews, but I was so shocked by the number of people who wrote this game was and I quote, "THE BEST GAME EVER!", I just couldn't resist my urge to write. Hey, guys, don't waste your precious time to trick people to buy this game please. Yea, maybe if you are so in love with the movie that you memorize every single line(Hey, I love the movie too), or if you like to be entertained by a few oohs and ahhs flash moves, I wouldn't stop you from getting...
Summary: Thankfully I rented the game rather than paying out the full price and having played it for several hours I can certainly say I am glad I did not waste my money. I'd have to say there is some fun to be had with the game, the focus time, the realistic Matrix style moves are all great and the cut scenes and sound effects are wonderful and will be enjoyed by any fan of the movies. However the game falls very short in terms of long term play-ability.
Summary: Enter the Matrix was one of (if not THE) most hyped games of the year. Unfortunately, the game fails miserably to live up to even a fraction of that hype. Let me start with some of the things I like. First, the Focus/Bullet Time is excellent. Much, much better than Max Payne. You can see the contrails of the bullets as they whiz past you, you can run up walls and flip cartwheels. Very nice! Well, that's about it for the stuff I like. The graphics are pretty bad.

Pros: Its fairly cheap and there is a lot of action .
Cons: Weak story, bad graphics, poor sound effects and its a very short game !
Excerpt: Age Rating - 15+ 1 Player Can also be played on the Xbox, Gamecube and PC. Can be bought new or used for £4+ at ebay.co.uk. There is no multi player options. I loved watching The Matrix trilogy so I was interested in the game, especially since I'd be able to play as either Ghost or Niobe; two characters who I saw in the second movie (The Matrix Reloaded) and wanted to see more of.
Pros: The movie cut scenes, voice acting, acting and the hacking side game .
Cons: Repetitive game play, poor graphics, not much of a plot .
