I went through a phase of playing Max Payne to death I still play it now sometimes. I just think the bullet time is cool as hell. So any Matrix fans with Max Payne installed on their machine might want also want to take a look at these. True Matrix is good but these are also good:
As for Max Paynes Bullet Time being better than Enter The Matrix I heard a story behind that, like any internet rumors I don't know how much is true maybe someone heard something similar and can back me up. The story goes that after the release of the Matrix in 1998 The Wach's went into talks with Remedy about a Matrix game it would have been released 12 months after M1. So Remedy worked on this matrix game and an important part of any Matrix game is bullet time, so Remedy were given permission to use the Wach's trademarked bullet time in this game. Now everybody knows that the Matrix was written as and was always meant to be at least two films but the Wach's didn't have the go ahead for the sequels until the success of the Matrix was proved. So a number of months in Remedys development of this untitled Matrix game the Wach's get the go ahead for Reloaded and Revolutions. So I presume because it ties in with Reloaded it was somewhere around this time that the idea for Enter the Matrix came into the Wach's head. So they told remedy that they wanted to do a tie in with the sequel instead of the game that Remedy had just spent the last number of months developing, Remedy didnt take too kindly to this and told the Wachs's to f--- off (probably). Anyway because Remedy already had permission to use the official Bullet Time in a game and they had already spent a lot of time developing it they continued developing it changed it and in 2001 Max Payne was released, and bloody good it was. So the Wach's now left with no developer for their great concept of a game the approached Shiny. Now you can't fault anything in Enter the Matrix that the Wach's had anything to do with ie, the Story the cutscenes motion capture etc. but the actual game itself... the words crock of shit spring to mind. I heard that Shiny didn't lift a finger on the game until the last six months. Looking back on how good Max Payne was I bet the Wach's are kicking themselves. Anyway at least Matrix online looks good.
Incidentally that proves that the Matrix still exists after Revolutions because Matrix online is set after the three movies and in thegame you jack into the Matrix.
I'll stop ranting now.
__________________ 'The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think that it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. There is a lot of denial in this ride, the ride, in fact, is made up of denial. It goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride..." And we... kill those people. Ha ha "Shut him up." "We have a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up. Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account and my family. This just has to be real." Just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because: It's just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defences each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.' - the late prophet Bill Hicks.
