  1. A sim of Arnie’s election campaign would be more entertaining.

    With an inaccessible multiplayer and a deeply flawed single-player game, there's just not much to like in Terminator 3: War of the Machines. It's a game that feels incomplete and practically abandoned by its publisher.

    Oh yeah, Terminator 3: War of the Machines also has vehicles! Too bad they suck. [Apr 2004, p.84]

    Playing alone with bots is unbearable - the AI players run into walls and can't aim for squat. [Apr 2004, p.74]
  5. As a team-based shooter with vehicles, the game strives to recapture the magic of "Battlefield 1942" in a sci-fi setting but fails miserably.
  6. If just one copy of Terminator 3 gets bought anywhere in the world, then I have failed as both a game reviewer and a member of the human race...Hollow lifeless dreck.

    What a disappointment. This could of been something great, instead you get 10 so-so maps, crappy AI, bots that can't use vehicles for What a disappointment. This could of been something great, instead you get 10 so-so maps, crappy AI, bots that can't use vehicles for more than 10 feet, skynet vehicles that never get used by bots, an ugly red lens for skynet that is useless. After 2 hours of play, you've pretty much are done with single play. Single play is completely pointless. Full Review »

    Да... это неумелая копирка Battledield, но...
    Игра очень даже атмосферная, но всё портят УЖАСНО тупые боты, если бы не они, то оценка была

    Игра очень даже атмосферная, но всё портят УЖАСНО тупые боты, если бы не они, то оценка была выше. И какая же ностальгия у меня от этой игры...
    Лучше не играйте, если не испытываете ностальгических чувств к этой игре.

    Could have been worse, The gameplay was suppose to be great if only the enemy A.I. (Skynet) was sm art and ain't dumb. Another reason why theCould have been worse, The gameplay was suppose to be great if only the enemy A.I. (Skynet) was sm art and ain't dumb. Another reason why the gameplay is mediocre is that the multiplayer is well: TERMINATED.
    You can't access it cause of the lousy CD-Key they gave you. So you can only play singleplayer. It's not a bad game, but not a great one either, for me it's just another time-killing game. If you have nothing to do or waiting for someone or waiting for a movie then play it. But I warn you if you buy the game Skynet wins.
