Ignore my earlier comment that the characters from Enter the Matrix are not in the Matrix Reloaded movie, they ARE. The PCGamer article seemed a bit vague about it.

Reuters (of all places) has a rather decent article about it, even though it doesn't say anything about the game really.

Also, is it just me, or is EVERYONE at Infogrames an idiot?

Go to Gamespot for a hands-on look. It also mentions the differences between consoles. Like the PS2 engine is the most worked on as to get it optimized for it's hardware. The xBox will have more polygons and more detailed skeletal animation over the pc. In the end they say they want to take advantage of each platforms hardware.

They have some new screens, plus one of the new videos is available to none members.

Warcraft III was an embarassing attempt to be like Sacrifice. It can't figure out which it wants to be, Sacrifice or the original Warcraft, and it fails miserably in being either. Any game that has three, count 'em, three rules to prevent you from building up an overwhelming force to "encourage" you to fight small battles definitely has design schizophrenia.

Do yourself a favor and go play Sacrifice.

Yeah I saw the EB screenies too which were the same screenies from a GamePro magazine... The mag said that all those screens were from the playstation2 version of the game...

I also saw the segment on entertainment tonight yesterday and I must say it looked good... A lot better than the screenies from EBgames and from what I could tell a consistent frame rate... No chugging... I am going to make an assumption that I saw gameplay from the PS2 version which had lackluster textures and no player shadows and gameplay from an XBox version with decent textures and player shadows...

I also saw a gameplay scene that looked like a spacesim... Like you get to drive a vehicle of some kind which I wasn't expecting to see it... That clip was really short though.

Needless to say my faith in this game is somewhat restored...

BTW, I realize a lot of movies to games suck but there have been some recent games that were able to make a decent transition from movies to games like Spider-man, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Star Wars Rouge Squadron, and Jedi Knight II was okay(except for those damn jump puzzles.)

i think this game is going to be pretty crappy, but it's going to fly off shelfs because it's on all the platforms and it has 'the matrix' on it. i think they are just trying to milk their cash cow as much as possible.

Most games that are made from movies never seem to be any good. I dont know about this one but its worth checking out.
The movie got boring real fast.. seen it 3 times and never want to see it again.

No, all you need to do is have COOL DARK SUNGLASSES and you are a super badass in the Matrix. Just like Saved By The Bell. Or Alf.

Also you need to make a fetish fashion show of everything or you're just a nobody.

Well, your comments give me some hope for the game, but I am still just as unimpressed thus far as I was when EBg had the preview shots up.

Here is to hoping that I can catch that clip sometime and that, considering all the time and money involved, the game comes out great.

You can find the teaser and the Superbowl TV spot of Matrix: Reloaded on this link: http://www.movie-list.com/m/matrixreloaded.shtml

It says Reloaded will be out May 15th and Revolutions is due sometime in November.


EDIT: If you havn't already checked the link, I'm talking about the movies.. not the game.

Here's some text from Newsweek (I'm not bothering to proof read my typing):

"As for the game, its story cleverly fleshes out off-screen moments only alluded to in "Reloaded" drawing upon two of the supporting characters from the movie, Niobe and Chost to serve as the stars for the game. Thanks to the power of today's machines, Enter the Matrix manages to re-create much of the rush you get watching the movie, with everything from running on walls and wire-fu fighting; the game's combat was created by the film's Hong Kong stunt team-to bullet timeand guns. (Lots of guns.) There's even a text-based game that lets you "hack" into the matrix using DOS commands, as another way to upgrade your character and unlock secrets. "You don't have to see the movie to play the game, or vice versa," say Dave Perry, whose company, Shiny, is producing the game. "But if two people are sitting next to each other, and only one of them has played the game, the gamer will have a deeper understanding of what's going on."

Also, somewhere in the article it mentions that the video was shot on the same sets and stars for the game.

The story also mentions cool things like how there will be a climactic battle like we've never see before that's 17 minutes long and cost alone about two thirds of the budget of the first "Matrix" (which was 65 million) That scene is in Revolutions.

Then that highway chase you see in the preview is a 2-mile looping highway (complete with several exits and on-ramps, plus an overpass) they built just for the movie.

If you want to read the story, which talks about everything, even has side by side photos of copycats, like Max Payne, or what the movie got it's ideas from, it was the January 6th 2003 Newsweek.
