  1. The game is certainly a rental for action fans and fans of the movie, but do not buy this unless you have been banned from your local rental place and can find it cheap.
  2. Terminator: Salvation is a run-of-the-mill game adaption of a successful movie brand. Overall okay, but way too short and without any highlights or variety.
  3. Flat and boring. Terminator: Salvation fails to earn other, more favorable adjectives. The only bright spot is the soundtrack incorporating Brad Fiedel’s signature theme.
  4. I've never played such a boring game as Terminator Salvation: The Videogame. The game is repetitive and the storytelling very shallow. It's a big plus that finishing the game will only take you about three to four hours. Even the very reasonable cover system can't let you enjoy this simple and boring movie game.

    An abysmal failure. No sense of excitement, fear or anything. [July 2009, p.76]
  6. As a movie game goes, it could have been pretty decent if there was a larger variety of enemies and of course the game was about 4 times the length. As is, we have another movie licensed game that fails to deliver the goods.
  7. Terminator Salvation shows the worst face of movie licenses: it's been done too fast to take advantage of the film's release date, it doesn't add any value for the fans, it's full of bugs and every part of the game has a very poor quality.

    It's awesome in co-op. Singleplayer is okay, but just great playing with a friend. Now we're going for it in the hardest setting.
