Product Description

Platform: PlayStation2 | Edition: Standard

From the Manufacturer

The Matrix: Path of Neo follows the story of the blockbuster motion-picture trilogy The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions, and for the first time allows gamers to play as Neo and become "the One".

Gamers play as Neo, but from the moment the game begins, how the situations play out, how they handle them, how they deal with the events, where they go, how people react to them--it's all up to the gamer. They may win where Neo failed or find another way to solve the problem--the path is now theirs to follow.

As Neo, the choices the player makes to resolve each scenario and the resulting consequences may have a different result than the original films. Alternative scenarios filled with new characters, content, and storylines have all been written and planned by the Wachowski Brothers to expand the Matrix universe and overall gaming experience.

Gamers assume the role of Neo from when, as Thomas Anderson, he gets the cell phone in the package from Morpheus, to the flying street battle in the rain against Agent Smith.

  • Read codes, fly, run, and jump off walls
  • Dodge bullets and master martial arts
  • Experience true in-game Matrix physics
Features:
  • Once again blurring the lines between Hollywood and interactive entertainment, The Matrix: Path of Neo features the likenesses of all of the films’ key actors--including Keanu Reeves (Neo), Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus), Carrie-Ann Moss (Trinity), Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith), and Jada Pinkett-Smith (Niobe).
  • To truly immerse the gamer in the Matrix universe, the game features a "Director’s Cut" of the original movie footage from all three films and The Animatrix as cinematic sequences to progress the story told from Neo’s perspective. An exclusive to The Matrix: Path of Neo, the footage was edited by Zach Staenberg, the Academy Award winning editor of The Matrix working side by side with the Wachowski Brothers.
  • Re-creating the incredible ambience of being in the Matrix, The Matrix: Path of Neo features a full orchestral score playing in surround sound, developed to follow the action of the game. In addition, the games’ soundtrack features original songs by the bands that were featured in the Matrix films.
  • Use martial arts, medieval weapons, and guns (lots of guns) to take on a variety of enemies, such as heavily armed SWAT officers; agents of the Matrix, including Agent Smith; and Exiles in the employ of the Merovingian. To help prepare for these battles, there are several training levels which Neo must complete.
  • Enhanced "Bullet Time" special effects from the films; dodge bullets, jump off walls, and defy gravity and logic to recreate most memorable scenes.
  • To re-create Neo’s incredible range of moves The Matrix: Path of Neo also features a more sophisticated martial arts engine to give gamers the true feeling of being "the One".

3.0 out of 5 stars Is Neo the One? November 19, 2005
By Ian
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally, after SIX FRIGGIN YEARS, we finally get to play as the big guy himself from the Matrix trilogy! That's right, put your hands together, because you play as...Mouse!

Just kidding! Unlike the last matrix game, this time you finally get to play as the savior of mankind, Neo. Was it worth the wait? From my point of view, yes.

Before we go any further, I'd like to give everyone a warning about the game. WHEN YOU SEE A WHITE SCREEN AND TWO CHAIRS COMING TOWARDS YOU, SKIP THIS CUTSCENE! IF YOU DON'T, THE GAME WILL RUIN THE ENDING FOR YOU!

There we go. I apologize if I gave you the impression that I was shouting, but I wish that someone had told me this before I played the game. More on this later.

At first glance, Path of Neo simply seems to be a reworked Enter the Matrix, except that you play as Neo, and with better graphics. In a way that's true, because Path of Neo (PON) is a third person game where you run around shooting lots of guns, getting into lots of hand to hand combat, and doing cool matrix moves.

What all is different here from Enter the Matrix? Better graphics for one. While lots of people don't seem to think the graphics are bad, they really aren't. They are better then Enter the Matrix and have a higher level of quality. There are lots of moments where I went "Wow" when seeing some spectacular scenery. But, as many have pointed out, when you get up close and personal, the graphics can get pretty blocky and unimpressive. Overall, I'd say the graphics are pretty good, but not earth-shattering.

But gameplay always takes superiority over graphics. And while it stumbles along the way, PON for the most part succeds. If you haven't guessed already from the title, you play PON from Neo's point of view.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Visit to the Matrix World November 13, 2005
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
You can almost feel like the world is a bit saturated with Matrix-related stuff. Still, this game is quite fun to play and features newly re-mixed video.

The Wachowski Brothers personally worked on this game, and recombined video segments from the movies to build new sequences for the game. It really helps to have seen the movies, because while the game does move along with a plot, the montages of video clips would probably be very confusing if you didn't have the basic idea of what was going on.

So what IS going on. You're Neo, and you are given the choice of a red pill or blue pill. Amusingly, if you take the blue pill, you're sent back through your alarm clock and wake up as if out of a dream. Take the red pill, and you start on your path to Being the One. First it's a tutorial-like step by step guide to escaping the office building, with a far more convoluted path than seen in the movie.

Soon you're in a training arena, poking fun at a variety of video games. Then you move along through the storyline, with a wide variety of focus abilities and world-changing powers.

The graphics are reasonably good. At this point in time you really don't look to a PS2 for cutting edge graphics - the XBox has such amazing titles out, and the XBox 360 is just SO sweet, that you accept what you get from the PS2. That being said, I really found the movements of the characters to be quite impressive. Some of the martial arts moves were very smooth and realistic looking.

The sound is OK for an adventure game. Some of the little audio snippets get annoying VERY quickly, but that's the way it goes. The music in general was in the Matrix theme and helped you feel like you were a part of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A suberbly made and entertaining game November 9, 2005
By Helel
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is how all movie/games should be made - with care and attention to detail. There are many things right with this game so lets take a quick look at them.

Graphics

The graphics push the ps2 to it's absolute limit, the producers even managed to get in "normal mapping" a graphical technique thought impossible on the ps2. The characters all look very like their movie counterparts, which is great news. The shadows/shading is great and has never been done to this high quality on the ps2 before. 16:9 widescreen is also included.

9/10

Sound

The music is brilliant and varies from hard beat to rousing operatic styles that really capture the mood and stir the emotions. They retain very high voice acting standards with many of the cast comming and doing voice work such as Laurence Fishbourne.

9/10

Gameplay

This is what makes or breaks a game. Think max paine crossed with a martial arts fighter. The combos and attacks are excellent and you really feel the power/grace in them. They were designed by the martial arts master who did the choreography from the films and it shows.

It's also great to see what the films left out and the many stories that occur here. Written by the directors of the movies themselves they represent what the trilogy would have been if each film was many, many hours long. Neo uses his flying to chose many varied missions over the city that are interesting and really add to the depth.

9/10

Overall

This is one of the best releases of the year, and if your a matrix fan you must get this. Even if your not it's a superb action game worthy of being in someones collection.

9/10

Worth buying if your a fan of the movies and the animatrix series. But wished they had a HD reboot of this game with path of neo. Regardless still a good game.
