    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.

The atmosphere, music, and plot presentation are simply excellent. Yes of course there are shoals of clumsy animation, bad textures, etc.. But the game has a small budget. All rights reserved. This is what it means when talented people get involved. Money doesn't decide everything. Expand

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 The graphics are a bit out of date but this is Gold when compared to the previous terminator games that have been released.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

    This is a little game and doesn't pretend otherwise.
    The only thing I miss is a new game plus.

For fans of the first two Terminator movies, this is a fantastic game. The attention to detail is incredible. You can feel the passion devs have when creating this game. The story is fantastic and the characters are very likable and for me, this is the true T2 successor!

    I am not sure if you will like this game if you are not fan of the Terminator movies.. The gameplay is ok but nothing special. AI is sometimes really bad. But the story and the atmosphere bring this game really high! Oh and I have almost forgot about the soundtrack! IT IS AWESOME! And the main theme is actually my favorite

Несомненно, там есть дыры в сюжете, но если не слишком углубляться и играть для веселья то игра хороша. Очень понравился геймплей и возможность делать выбор в игре, чтобы не был простой шутер. Как по мне игра классная и подойдёт как способ времяпрепровождения, пока ожидаешь больших релизов. Expand

    just another not-so-boring game, works fine on my setup (2080s+i9 9900K), but... 2019... no russian language... seriously?
