Excerpt: Path of Neo is the next console game based on the popular Matrix franchise. A lot of people were quite disappointed in Enter The Matrix . That game had an interesting premise but didn't come out quite well, and lets face it….
Pros: Nice presentation of the movies, Good melee combat, Awesome sound
Cons: What happened to some of the graphics?, Stu.. Stuttt.. Stuttering Framerate, What happened with the gun gameplay?
Excerpt: I remember when Enter the Matrix was announced, the disappointment voiced by players and critics alike when they discovered they couldn’t play as Neo was extremely strong.

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.

Conclusion: The Matrix: Path of Neo was mainly created for Matrix fans, and not the uber hardcore who will just hate anything different from the pictures. It's great to have a game where you can be Neo in the Matrix world.

Pelin nautittavan pelattavia sekä näyttäviä lähitaisteluita ja sitä myöten "aitoa" Matrix -henkeä särkee paikoitellen tyhmä tekoäly, ontuva ammuskelu...
Pros: + Lähitaistelut, + Upeannäköiset liikkeet, + Ok äänet
Excerpt: "Finir le jeu", c'est ce qui doit manquer dans le cahier des charges de Shiny depuis Enter The Matrix. Une fois de plus, le développeur, répondant à des impératifs qui n'ont rien de ludiques, nous livre un soft blindé de bugs et au gameplay inachevé.
