Our Exclusive Preview -

Our own Reed Hubbard has just concluded his preview of The Matrix Online.  Below is a snippet from his article:

The game begins with a choice: red pill or blue. Choosing the red pill brings the player into the game and places him in a dark urban setting. The cityscape is reminiscent of City of Heroes, but the tone is direful and has more of a dystopian feel. Traffic speeds by on gritty streets, subway trains whisk into dingy subway stations, pedestrians wander about, oblivious to the reality of the Matrix – a reality of which you, as the player, are all too aware.

Although the city buildings have a feeling of similarity, they are not cookie-cutter duplicates. Each has its own layout and is populated with various items and NPCs. Most every building may be entered and explored at any time. Rooms may contain filing cabinets, desks, wall safes, computers, or other furnishings which may be opened, unlocked or hacked to obtain items or information. There are also NPCs which may or may not attack, depending on the player's alignment.
