Quick Review: The Matrix Awakens Experience

  • Version played: Xbox Series S

A tech demo showcasing what next gen consoles can do, and it really does look spectacular, even on the Xbox Series S. It starts with a simple combat scene, an on-rail shooting section where you fend off agents from the back of a car, and then you get to explore the rather vast city.

There isn’t a lot to do other than drive around, or “fly” (which is essentially a free cam mode), but the demo itself is very impressive, it looks fantastic and you can toggle all sorts of modes to see how it works. One thing in particular I liked was the traffic: I blocked off the highway and let traffic back up, which it did to an extremely impressive degree, where you would usually expect things to just not spawn any more.
