    The future isn't set. That means you still have time to cancel your preorder of Terminator Salvation. A harsh statement, certainly, but considering the latest in the man vs. machine saga can easily be completed in four hours, it's an accurate one.
  2. We can't ignore it feels like a yet to be finished game, with some good ideas but not fully exploited. In fact, perhaps it has been hurried up to be ready for the cinema premiere, and this would have harmed the development. What a shame. Maybe next time.
  3. Terminator Salvation - The Videogame can actually be fun at times, but the repetitive gameplay, some technical issues and the lack of a multiplayer mode make this game the usual tie-in, good only for the fan of the brand.
  4. A title without any kind of charm, released only to get a few more bucks from Terminator fans. Stay away from it and better look for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. At least the latter showed us that there are indeed exceptions to the rule.
  5. Unfortunately, it‘s a no-go. Terminator: Salvation lines up right next to hundreds of titles which are supposed to be a worthy game based on a movie – and has no intention of going any further.
  6. As gamers, we are well accustomed to the fate of movie-related games, which is why Salvation is such a disappointment. It has some solid combat, perhaps the best cover-system to date, and the foundation for a captivating plot, but the game lacks any sort of scope.
  7. None of this is enough to save this game from being anything but the mediocre rubbish big development companies with lucrative movie licenses seem to think we want to play. [Aug 2009, p.60]

    The graphics and the sounds are okay. The game is linear and too short, 2-3 hours long. Only 4-5 type of enemies, but the game was good i think.
