The eye candy was sexy but I can’t say that I was overly impressed with the tests themselves. Better graphics than the precursors, sure, but I thought that overall there was a lack of excitement that I fondly remember enjoying before. Perhaps it’s just me reminiscing in the nostalgia of the games from my childhood but let me show you one of my favourites, the Matrix lobby scene rendition from 3DMark 2001. Still pretty epic.
