Very Good

Good action, annoying quirks

This game is what Enter the Matrix should have been more like.

Pros: The environments are great-looking and destructible, the gun-fighting is satisfying, and the atmosphere is exactly like a dumb Hong Kong action movie (which can be a good thing).

Cons: The camera is too slow and stays too close to Tequila sometimes, the character facial models are ugly, enemies appear out of nowhere behind you and get cheap shots, the gameplay can get repetitive, and the voice acting is mostly terrible. Why they didn't just make the entire cast speak the characters' native language is beyond me. Chow Yun Fat's "Engrish" is laughable.

Still, worth renting.

After playing the demo I couldn't wait to get this game. Boy am I disappointed... this game is the most repetative junk I've seen in a long time. Shoot some dudes. more dudes come out.. shoot them.. more come out...

The backgrounds look great and the story is exactly like the movie, but I gotta tell ya, it was a struggle just to get through the second level.

Sending it back early... LAME
