I cannot believe how many people say this is a bad game! This game rocks!!! The graphics exceed, or are at least up to par with, all other third and first person shooters out there. The fight moves one can do in the Focus Mode are simply amazing. Yes, the storylines may seem linear, but the game was written with a close-ended script, as in it was meant to fit in with the Matrix movies. If the storylines were open-ended, then each player of the game would get a different story, which would defeat a part of the game's purpose. Which was to expand the overall Matrix story, and add another dimension to the Matrix experience. If you are having trouble with the game looking good, get a new graphics card. In this area is one of my only two complaints. There is, or there was at the time of release, only a very limited number of graphics cards that Enter the Marix would run on. I had to upgrade my graphics card, at $90.00, in order to play this game. But it was well worth it, for now I can play many games I couldn't before, and all the games I already owned now look a whole lot better. My only other comaplaint is the enourmous complexity, and overall how hard, the hacking portion of the game is (in the hacking portion of the game, you attempt to hack into the Matrix itself). I am going to have to download a guide from online in order to access all the little 'secrets' available through the hacking portion of the game. But other than these two things, this game is incredible. With the drop in price from its original $49.99 opening price to its current, much lower, price, if you have the right graphics card, or don't mind spending a little moo-lah ($) on an updrade, BUY THIS GAME. You won't regret it.
