  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.

    the game takes all of 4-5 hours to finish even on the hard mode which feels more like easy mode . the story is super simple save some guys whothe game takes all of 4-5 hours to finish even on the hard mode which feels more like easy mode . the story is super simple save some guys who are taken prisoner by skynet ... thats it . no plot twists , no new info to add to the terminator saga , no innovative gameplay , nada. its a bare bones action game that is barely functional at best . the cover system works ok , the wepon selection is very poor . enemy varity is basicaly 4 differnt machines you will fight and no boss fights. this game is a rental at best and thats only if you are a die hard terminator fan or are a trophy junky and want a quik 100% . otherwise stay away from this game you could play much much better games then this.

    The only redeeming reason for anyone to purchase, rent or even take the game for free is for the trophies. Just complete the campaign on co-opThe only redeeming reason for anyone to purchase, rent or even take the game for free is for the trophies. Just complete the campaign on co-op in hardest difficulty (which is easy and unlocked from the start) and you'll get 12 Golds and a Platinum in about 5 hours. There is absolutely nothing in this game which makes it, in any way, even worth calling it a game. There's no multiplayer or other additional content other than the campaign. No collectibles or challeneges or anything. Graphics suck, characters suck, story sucks, sound sucks, environments suck, enemies? Well, there's only 3 types of enemies and about 4 weapons. Aside from taking down the flying aerostats, the weapons are completely useless on the other two enemies. Grenades do much more damage. Everything from AI to story to gameplay and controls is just completely flawed even if it was a free game don't take it unlesss you care about trophies. Expand
