    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.

    Though short, the game functions very well, and emulated the Terminator universe acceptably.

    straight, up this game was awesome. Don't know what all the hate is about, Ive replayed it dozens of times and have investing probably over 100 hours in it myself and that's not including co-op. Trust my, buy it, you won't be disappointed

    I pretty much enjoyed the game, it has great game play and a nice story but the only bad thing about it is that you can beat the game on hard mode in a few hours so if it had a nice multiplayer in addition to the co-op mode it would have been a amazing game

    While Terminator Salvation has some good ideas and is fun at times, it lacks any replayability. And more importantly, it lacks the star of the film, which is a rather curious omission.
  2. With its lean plot, unimposing terminators, and stilted replay value, Terminator Salvation doesn't have a whole lot going for it. It's also so unbelievably short that the price of entry simply can't be justified.
  3. This bare-bones movie tie-in is like a machine with synthetic rubber skin: it's not fooling anyone and you should stay away from it.
