Too Dark...

Released in 2003, written and directed by the Wachowskis themselves, they say this game completed the Matrix experience. Did it do it for you?

Too Dark...

Post by MaRiO mAtRiX »

For those of you who have the game for the PS2, has anyone noticed that the game is hard to see? :cry: I mean, everything is just so dark, and even when I go to options and brighten the screen all the way, it is still very hard to see anything. Is this just my television, or what? I mean, not only do I have to brighten the settings on the game, but also I have to brighten the settings on my television. There is nothing old about my television, and I even tried the game in my living room and it is still dark. I mean, the gameplay is fine and all, however the cut-scenes and credits are too dark to see normally. Has this been known to happen on some copies of this game? :? Is there anyone who thinks they know what the hell is going on with the game? :mad:

And, even though I haven't been playing my PS2 for quite some time, when I first got the game, it still was dark during the credits and cutscenes. And at that time I was playing my PS2 quite often. This is very odd...

Well, I have this game on my X-box so I don't know if i can help. But this game for me is a little bit on the darker side, but nothing out of the ordinary. No problems reported.

Sorry, I had it for gamecube.

But I would try going to the root menu of the ps2 which comes up when you have no disk inside... and try fixing the brightness/contrast.

Or maybe your tv.

Quick Solution: Play the game with the lights out. I have learned from having a small TV that dark movies get even darker, almost black. So you turn out all the lights and it's a bit easier to see.

If it's a small tv... sorry bud, you're screwed.

Nope, didn't make any difference. I tried it on the bigger television in the living room, and it still wasn't any better.

Interesting. Well, at least it's not just me who had problems with the lighting of the game. It's funny, because it shouldn't make a difference due to the size of the screen. They should all be in the same light regardless. Weird... :?
