STAFF REVIEW of Enter the Matrix (Xbox)

Enter the Matrix Box art Enter the Matrix is perhaps the best game ever made that is based on a movie. I can not think of another game that expands upon the movie in quite the same way as this. It's worth playing alone for all the FMV shot exclusively for the game (which includes a steamy kissing scene between Niobe and Persephone). The game really shines in several categories, including, the hand to hand fighting, the ability to "focus" (slow-mo bullet time), the sounds and music are some of the best, and there is a great variety of weapons, characters, and gameplay. The separate story lines of Ghost and Niobe make it a must to play the game over after completing it with one. It has a hacking system which provides some extra games and entertainment. ETM does have a couple flaws, mainly that there are too many "escort missions", in which you have to protect others who like to put themseleves in harms way. Of course, ONE escort mission is too many, in my book. And, some of the scenery can be drab. But, the good stuff more than makes up for these flaws, and I have to give it a 5 out of 5.


The gameplay is teriffic. I've played for hours and still see new kicks, punches, and disarm moves every time I play. This game uses the slo-mo time better than any other. Fighting is easy and fun. You'll be pulling off wickedly cool moves within the first few minutes you pick it up. The story weaves into the Reloaded movie very well, and expands upon the back story.


When I saw that the game supported 1080i HDTV, I was pretty excited, but then I put it in and found it looks no better than those that support 480p. The scenery can be drab and a little on the boring side. I was getting a little tired of the sewers and endless tunnels. The FMV scenes were not up to DVD quality. On the good side, the characters look teriffic, and there is nothing really bad about the visuals, just nothing that'll make you run around in circles screaming for joy.


The music captures the Matrix experience perfectly and it does utilize some music from the first movie. This game sounds teriffic on a DD 5.1 system. The sound effects from punches to weapons deliver everything you'd want and then some.


Suggestions:
Great game! The Only suggestion I can think of would be to eliminate the escort missions (this suggestion applies to every game with one).


Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
Visuals: 8.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
