Excerpt: How Atari must have been laughing at the success of Enter the Matrix. Despite receiving a mauling in all but the most untrustworthy of publications, the game went on to sell millions of copies world wide. It seems that The Matrix is now destined to deliver mediocrity, with two sequels that failed to come anywhere close to the original movie, but surely the sequel to one of the most disappointing games of 2003 has to be a better gaming experience... doesn't it?
Excerpt: Are you "the One"? Not so sure? Then let me leave you with two choices: If you take the "blue pill," you stay in Kansas and you never find out whether the GiN crew gives this game the thumbs up or the thumbs down. You take the "red pill" and we break this game down brick by brick and find out how deep the rabbit-hole goes. Either way, I should probably have let you know by now that the Matrix already has you, so trust me.
Conclusion: is a worthwhile game adaptation of the trilogy and significantly better than Enter the Matrix. The only problem is that the game has many of its own flaws as well that prevent the game from being what fans truly deserved. There are many glitches in the gameplay and graphics alike that bring to mind questions about the production budget.
Excerpt: Admit it: You thought Path of Neo was going to suck. Can’t say I blame you, this game didn’t exactly have much to live up to. Enter the Matrix was a colossal monument of suck; bad controls, stupid main characters, boring gameplay. Matrix Reloaded and Revolution were two psychological beer-runs, so obsessed with attaining cinematic nirvana that they forgot to be enjoyable.
Excerpt: Was 1999 that long ago? Is the childlike joy that the movie-going public everywhere experienced upon seeing Keanu Reeves stop those bullets with his mind truly over half a decade old? Time works strangely in the real world, and much like in the actual plane of existence, time in the Matrix can exhibit strange properties.
