    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.

Não é um jogoO jogo me surpreendeu, isso em cima do que eu esperava... Eu esperava algo horrível como Rambo e no fim se saiu muito melhor. Não é um jogo digno de premiações, mas pra quem é fã da franquia ou conhece Terminator sabe o quanto ele complementa o Universo da franquia.

    Ele se passa 30 anos depois de Terminator 2, mas a história no futuro se passa antes da Skynet mandar o primeiro protótipo ao passado - no primeiro filme. A batalha final é muito nostálgica, eu me senti naquele começo dos filmes onde tem tiro de laser pra tudo que é lado e um monte de exterminadores pisando em crânios.

    O jogo conta com MUITA ação, mas há momentos que podemos agir com furtividade. Ele tem algumas escolhas, mas as grandes tomadas de decisões acontecem no final do jogo.

    O jogo conta como e o motivo da Skynet ter elaborado os ciborgues (infiltradores) e a criação da máquina do tempo. Em forma de referência, também descobrimos quem era o cara "original" que deu seu rosto ao T-1000, com o rosto do próprio Robert Patrick.

    Uma coisa que eu digo, não leve em conta as análises de "sites especializados", a maioria que eu li sequer conhece a franquia e não entendeu o contexto do jogo, que é canônico, dentro do universo dos filmes. Se quer referência de análise, utilize a análise dos jogadores tanto no Metacritic quanto no próprio Steam.

    Para quem quiser acompanhar, a série está rolando no meu canal Fique no Controle, além de fazer o final bom e todas as secundárias, fiz questão de ler todos os documentos que encontrei e explicar um pouco sobre a franquia.

It'sTerminator frahcnise is a part of my cildhood since I watched it on vhs, and this game is like the best game of this year for me. It's something very personal for me and probabably many other people of my age too. OFC critics don't care about feelings game brought to us or they're too young to understand what Terminator Franchise means to some of us.

    If you can support people making games from the heart but not for the hype and money, do it.

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

It's clunky, sure. But it's simple and easy to get into. Combat and stealth mechanisms work well, and i've had no bugs or crashes so far. Graphics are ok. Reminiscent of Metro. Linear, but the mission areas are open for exploration. Gotta give props for the atmosphere though. Though nothing special, still a hundred times better than most "AAA" games i've played recently. Just shows what a vision and a little effort can do. Expand

    it feels close to t1 future scenes movie. its better than fallout 3 4 terminator mods better than old skynet game but bcouse of not openworldit feels close to t1 future scenes movie. its better than fallout 3 4 terminator mods better than old skynet game but bcouse of not openworld or battlefield like game fees like call of duty terminator. game respect cameron vision like you cant shoot normal guns with real terminators you need plasma rifle. have skill tree and good dialog system and crafting hacking etc. the openning missions little generic you dont encounter real terminators but after a while action start to get close future terminator scenes. best terminator game yet stil not that mature about characters but this game not a movie. music is good feels more like t1 music. game tone more like quality between t1 and t2 future scenes but at least do the job about skins weapns vehicles bluce sky red purple lasers tone is right here first time in any terminator game. graphics really good even you can compare night vision for call of duty mw level. ı think best movie game after alien isolation game. for me better in some ways bcouse that was 1 alien at least here many termşnators looking for you and some parts feels grand war like t1 future scene but sadly still not feels like t2 future scenes. ı wish it have multiplayer or lan like alien colinial mariens with bots etc bcouse some maps big enough and gunplay good. if this game come call of duty 4 times 2007 it can be hit easly good thing not like alien islolation graphics 9 sure.
