  1. Your objectives change so constantly that it's easy to forget about the blurry graphics and simplistic combat. [Feb 2004, p.114]
  2. Although this latest T3 is a far cry better than the other iterations of this movie-franchise cross-over, the GBA T3 just doesn’t have enough good in it to make it worth owning.

    The play control is solid, though aiming can be difficult at times. [Mar 2004, p.121]
  4. The game isn’t that long and it’s also an easy game to play thanks to plentiful weapons, ammo, and power-ups. You seldom even worry about dying unless you are totally careless.
  5. You won’t be hard-pressed to find a better shooter on the GBA and not buying it may send a message to developers everywhere that slapping a “name-brand” title like Terminator 3 on a game doesn’t justify underdevelopment.
  6. Of all the T3 games released this year, Rise of the Machines for the GBA is easily the best one; but once you get beyond comparisons to the rest of the motley Terminator 3 bunch, the game doesn't hold up on its own merits.
  7. The capture-the-flag mode can be rather confusing, since you'll constantly have to travel between sections in the level using teleport points that don't actually tell you where you'll end up.
