    After the abberration that Rambo: The Video Game was, Teyon delivered Terminator: Resistance - not just a "cool game" in and of itself, but also the best Skynet-themed game to date. Destroying terminators is really satisfying and I'm certain that this game will be one of the biggest surprises of 2019 to some shooter lovers out there.

    As a shooter, Resistance is rather mediocre. But as a Terminator game, it's great. [Issue#244, p.52]

    Terminator: Resistance is a scrappy little game with a lot of heart, ambition, and genuinely great design in parts. It definitely could’ve benefited from a more compelling latter half, and the presentation will throw off a lot of people. However, it’s the most accurate interactive translation of the franchise to date, and frankly, a better yarn than many of the films between Judgement Day and Dark Fate.

    As of now, Terminator: Resistance is no more than a grabber box candidate for fans of the movies or the genre.

    An unexpected surprise: Even with its old-fashioned visuals and storytelling you‘ll encounter quite a few tense moments in this stealth-charged Sci-Fi-shooter.

    Terminator Resistance is a mediocre title. Gunplay in not so bad, but the game looks old and never offers engaging or exciting moments. Fun for a couple of hours and nothing more.

    The most disappointing thing about Terminator: Resistance isn’t merely that it’s bad, it’s that it’s bad and yet it’s probably still the best Terminator game I’ve ever played. If you’re in the mood to mindlessly mow down waves of authentically modelled T-800s to the rhythm of Brad Fiedel’s iconic theme music, then Terminator: Resistance may well be adequate enough. But while there might already be a truly great Terminator game in some alternate universe’s timeline, in this one the wait continues.

    Отличная игра. Хороший сюжет, атмосфера, музыка, и ничего лишнего. Графика тоже вполне приятная. И игра для более взрослых людей, наверное.

The game play is smooth and flows nicely and the soundtrack is amazing. The graphics are a bit out of date but this is Gold when compared to the previous terminator games that have been released. One of my favourite aspects behind this game is the story-line which allows you to have influence over what happens later in the game. There is also multiple side missions you can complete to build a good reputation with the other story characters. I definitely recommend this game if you are looking for something to kill the time and have fun! So far through what I have played it has been enjoyable and exciting to run through. Expand

Yeah the graphics aren't great but who cares? The game-play is fantastic. This is an FPS that gets the stealth mechanics right. The characters are great, the story is great and the environment is perfect. I love its old school design -- it's a touch of STALKER and a touch of HL 2 -- and I bet most that enjoy those will enjoy this. And as usual the "expert" reviewers get it wrong--I guess Teyon's advertising budget was too small for them to warrant the usual 'po$itive' review. Expand

With their budget, they would not have enough money for everything at once. Expand

    Terminator Resistance takes place after Judgment Day into the future Resistance led by John Connor. This game is actually pretty good. TheTerminator Resistance takes place after Judgment Day into the future Resistance led by John Connor. This game is actually pretty good. The story alone is better than every film that was made after T2.

    The gameplay and the story are very good and what keeps things interesting. There are many different scenarios and situation that keep you in your toes from T800 to sneaking around and also keeping your ammo in check meaning: you can’t go shoot around everything unless you want to run out of ammo fast. Its an apocalyptic environment so supplies are scarce.

    The graphics and character animations are in line with games like HALF-LIFE 2 (old school type), nothing mayor but good enough to do the job.

    I would definitely recommend this game for Terminator fans and anyone who wants to know more of what happened after T2 Judgment Day.

    I dont know why, but it feels like S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
    Most underrated game of 2019.
