User reviews for The Matrix Online
6.4 / 10Combined Score
Some initial bugs with missions. Confused about code compiling and some character management issues.
I bought this game after hearing about the Matrix apocalypse at the end of beta testing. It sounds like this game is really going to take MMP storytelling to a new level by letting players control the continuing storyline of the Matrix.
I've seen some people hyperjumping in the game- WOW, I can't wait to fly around the city from rooftop to rooftop.
So far it's a really great online community. There is a streaming webcast at www.radiofreezion.com. The style and music really set this experience apart from the typical fantasy MMP.
The combat looks great and the bullet-time effect is just plain cool. The acrobatic gunplay is especially Matrix-y.
They have some mission glitches and combat animation bugs to work out (like dead characters sometimtes standing back up.) Nothing that...
PvP is consensual (other than going along with the overall theme of a truce. PvP is no more of a honorable duel)
PvP servers only "open up" if the truce breaks.
People in the know use exploits like crazy and devs are slow to fix them
No group activities
Every server and client problem you can imagine, short of it not functioning
Because it's a player-dependent game, you may find yourself at the mercy of a loud-mouth 14 year old.
Oh, and the cool storyline...ga...
