I’m not a huge fan of the single-player game. I went through it once, and I was happy. Then I get this Matrix mod from Dr.X called The Matrix Remodded. Well, I’m a Matrix fan so I thought I’d give it a look.
Once you bust open the readme, you see that a lot of items have been changed. The usual character conversions are here, Kyle and Neo, Jan and Trinity, the usual Matrix stuff. The StormTroopers are now robots. All kinds of cool stuff. The blaster pistol is now a regular pistol, the blaster rifle is now a machine gun, the disruptor rifle is a rifle and the lightsaber has been changed into a sword. In addition to the new models, Dr.X also threw in some new animations. There’s a new roll and different saber stances. All these and more can be found in the readme, which includes all the readmes for all these items.
I had a couple issues though. First and foremost was the sound. I’m not sure what the problem is exactly, but whenever I play this mod my sound gets severely messed up. The voices become choppy and the sounds start to lag. This is most noticeable with the new weapon models. The pistol sound comes long after it’s been fired. Since I don’t play with the music on, sound effects are very important to me and this was very distracting. Secondly, if you don’t take this out of the base folder it will completely change everything you know and love in multiplayer. Saber stances, acrobatics, weapon and skins will all be set to the way they are in the new single-player. If you take it out of base, you’re good to go, but it can be something of a nuisance to have to do that every time. It’s also pretty big. At 13 megs I don’t think it’ll be popular with many of the 56Kers out there.
If you want another Matrix mod or are just in the mood for another challenge give it a download. It’s pretty fun to play through single-player again, especially when it’s got a new twist to it.
