The Wachowski brothers were so passionate about creating a genuine The Matrix
atmosphere that they wrote a 244 page script just for the game.
The Matrix Reloaded
The game was released on the same day as the movie The Matrix Reloaded
. Throughout this film, there are numerous billboards to be seen. These billboards contain cheat codes for the game.
Warner Bros. license system
The poor reviews for Enter the Matrix
inspired Warner Bros.
to create a system where games with WB licenses that received less than a 70% rating on average out of all game reviews would require extra royalties. This was created in an effort to minimize bad movie-licensed games from Warner Bros. products.
