    A great cinematic storyline, HUGE city to explore, and just plain fun!

    This game was worth the money. The city was HUGE, and not only that, but you could go into ANY sky scraper you see, ANY house, or ANY place you want. There is so much variety to the different places, the combat is amazin... Read Full Review

    Underestimated, underappreciated, underdeveloped and underachieving. This MMO just needs a little love.

    In the plus column: It's sci-fi... Finally! No orcs, no elves, no magic... and no F'ing gnomes. The writing is really cool. There's no "real world" experience - when you log in, you choose which "hardline", or phone boo... Read Full Review

    This game sucks now that all the actors have quit and they killed off all the primary characters. The story in the online RPG used to be told in chapters until they all quit. Now they just show some storyboards with so... Read Full Review

    Definitely BETTER than when it Launched

    I first tried Matrix Online (MxO) when it first launched and was quite excited about it. However the poor combat system really turned me off to it. It was basically a "rock, paper, scissors" type system that ... Read Full Review

    most under-appreciated piece of art since porn.

    most under-appreciated piece of art since porn, if you are a fan of the matrix and feel like being dragged down the rabbit hole, jack-in. you wont regret it. art work is great, combat is original and a perfect reflection... Read Full Review

    The Matrix online is possibly the largest underated game ever to hit the PC game world.

    The Matrix online features some of the greatest features an MMO should have. Huge content that is actually updated and ongoing. Every month a new chapter is formed, and an entirely new set of missions and things to do ar... Read Full Review
