Enter The Matrix
3.5 Star Review  GameZone - Jun 17, 2003

Ever since The Matrix hit back in 1999, gamers the world over have been frothing for a chance to play a video game based on the film’s mythos. Now their chance arrives in Enter the Matrix. Enter the Matrix is the first (but not last) based on Andy and Larry Watchowskis’ film series. The game features a brand new story, written by the Wachowskis themselves, which runs parallel to the events that happened in this summer’s film, The Matrix Reloaded. The game’s story elements are very well done, and feature all the trappings of a Hollywood film.

Enter Matrix
2 Star Review  GameSpy - May 26, 2003

Conventional wisdom tells us that there's only one thing worse than video games based on movies, and that's movies based on video games. But conventional wisdom isn't always right, and I can name a bunch of really good games that happened to have movie licenses. Certainly, we've come a long way since the days of the reprehensible Total Recall for the NES, and Shiny's Enter The Matrix is a new breed of movie-licensed video game. The game makers worked closely with the Matrix movie staff to take their production to a new level of authenticity and game / movie integration. Unfortunately, playing Enter The Matrix served as a painful reminder that all the authenticity in the world can't help when the game is completely unpolished and the core gameplay is weak.

3.5 Star Review  IGN.com - May 20, 2003

God loves, hype kills. Marketing departments everywhere are doing such a thorough job that it seems every other day, a new entertainment property emerges that is heralded as the be-all, end-all experience ever to grace a movieplex, television screen or concert stage. Usually, the new best thing cannot stand up under the weight of expectation.

Atari Enter The Matrix Review
5 Star Review   By member da_man3498 - Nov 14, 2005   

Strengths: gameplay, sounds, modes and more!

Weakness: No NEO

OK this game is awesome! If you like the old fashioned focus on, shoot/kick/punch the crud out of police/agents/or a civilion then this is your game! You start out as either Ghost or Niobe,(no NEO):( You get a weapon and you can kick or punch. Your in a post office and you can focus and beat people up or shoot them!You can even quit the mission and hack on the game! You get various weapons! And you can dodge bullets when you use focus!!! This game is the best if your looking for the classic Matrix stuff! It's so realistic if you shoot the columns in the main waiting area of the office the start to break! This is THE BEST, tricky, but THE BEST review by BRENT

Enter the Matrix
4 Star Review   By member coolfan - Jul 22, 2005   

Strengths: The game is realistic and captures the movie perfectly, also the strength of the characters was amazing!

Weakness: The loading time was a bit long, and learning the controls to shoot was confusing.

Enter the Matrix was a satisfying game for me for many reasons. When playing a character, their stealth and power came in handy. I thought the game many times had showed humor that added to my experience of playing. Although the game was very technical with controls for various things, I found that the martial arts combined with special effects enhanced gameplay. I would recommend this game for other people to buy simply because it is a fun game that draws many aspects from the popular movie.

3 Star Review   By member electrictroy - Jul 22, 2005   

Strengths: short

Weakness: weak graphics

To Ataris credit, this game was a bit fun. You could do neat little tricks like cartwheeling while blasting away your enemies, cool hand to hand combat moves, and of course, do it all in slow motion. But the fun ended shortly, just like the game. The game quickly got repeditive. There was only a small number of moves in your aresenal, and once you used them a couple of times, it got boring. And, like the fun, the game stopped as abrubtly. I finished the game in one afternoon, then found out you could play as another character, which was stupid anyway because the gameplay with different characters was only MILDLY different at best, usually only a different setting, and then beat the game again the same afternoon. The multiplayer was boring because it was only hand to hand combat which got old fast. Overall, the game is somewhat amusing, for about a day. Not much more fun after that. There's no replay value iun the game, not an ounce. And to top that off, the coolest thing you can do is run on walls at r e a l l y s l o w s p e e d s. Honestly, Atari can do a little better than that.

3 Star Review   By member mrtwo - Jan 21, 2005   

Strengths: Interesting info regarding Matrix storyline

Weakness: Game controls

This game has all the trappings of a great game, but for me it doesn’t deliver 100%. I do like the game, don’t get me wrong, but the execution is a little odd for me. The main issue I have with the game is the odd floating feeling of controlling your main character coupled with what feels like button mashing to attack your enemies. I have not yet really gotten a feel for this game and most of the time I feel like I am running around mashing buttons to get past the area I am in. The story is nice and although I have not finished this game, I am to understand that there is information that will bridge certain gaps in the storyline.
