Replay – The Matrix: Path Of Neo

by Andrew Reiner on May 27, 2016 at 03:00 PM

In 2010, we took a look at Enter the Matrix, the first video game set in the Wachowskis' mind-bending universe that became the subject of debate for fans. On the one hand, people like that it wasn't just a video game adaptation of The Matrix, and gave fans new characters and a new story to soak up. The majority of people that didn't appreciate these things were flabbergasted they couldn't play as Neo in a Matrix video game.

Enter the Matrix eventually went on to become one of the biggest disasters in gaming (despite strong sales), and eventually led to the creation of The Matrix: Path of Neo, a game that fulfills the fantasy of people who were turned off by the first game. It's all about Neo. You get to see him at work. Watch him duck behind cubicles to avoid police. Do weird ninja stuff. And then do more weird ninja stuff.

We take a deep dive into this game, and show off just how weird it can be as we dissect the film trilogy in the process. Our second game is another licensed property that didn't get the justice it deserved. We end the episode with a third game you likely never heard of for the Super Nintendo.
