  1. 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.
  2. 30
    A clunky, junky licensing disaster.
  3. Terrible graphics, repetetive levels, extremely low difficulty, and music that will make you wish you were deaf. There's honestly just no excuse for games this bad to be made anymore. In short, do not buy, rent, play, or even look at this game ever, for any reason.
  4. The levels are dull-looking and you might have a job seeing what's happening on a standard GBA. If you are a fan of the films, even the third one, don't expect to relive the adrenaline rushes in this mediocre, disappointing GBA effort.
  5. 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.
  6. Abysmal. The graphics are terrible, the control is loose, and the gameplay is incredibly repetitive. [Spring 2004, p.48]
