    The future isn't set. That means you still have time to cancel your preorder of Terminator Salvation. A harsh statement, certainly, but considering the latest in the man vs. machine saga can easily be completed in four hours, it's an accurate one.

    We can't ignore it feels like a yet to be finished game, with some good ideas but not fully exploited. In fact, perhaps it has been hurried up to be ready for the cinema premiere, and this would have harmed the development. What a shame. Maybe next time.
  3. Terminator Salvation - The Videogame can actually be fun at times, but the repetitive gameplay, some technical issues and the lack of a multiplayer mode make this game the usual tie-in, good only for the fan of the brand.
  4. It's too short, it possible to count the different enemies and weapons on one hand and gameplay variety apparently was vaporized on Judgment Day. Only one thing is really high class: the price 10 Euros per hour of gameplay is a rip off.
  5. Unfortunately, it‘s a no-go. Terminator: Salvation lines up right next to hundreds of titles which are supposed to be a worthy game based on a movie – and has no intention of going any further.
  6. As gamers, we are well accustomed to the fate of movie-related games, which is why Salvation is such a disappointment. It has some solid combat, perhaps the best cover-system to date, and the foundation for a captivating plot, but the game lacks any sort of scope.

    It's too short and too undeveloped. [Issue#22, p.56]

    I reviewed this game on my own wesbite I reviewed this game on my own wesbite (http://razetheworld.gameriot.com/blogs/Inside-Rice/Terminator-Salvation-Review-80100/1#comment_414717) It was very fun while it lasted, a straight forward 3rd person linear shooter. I'm a fan of Grin Studios for their work with other movie games and this is no different; I enjoyed the game. There are a few bugs regarding the cover system and health recovery, but it added more gameplay (at least for me) The problem with most if not all movie games is the fact that the team doesn't have cash nor time to develop and perfect the game.

    Ok game is not actualy that bad. It is an obvious console conversion that wa snot finished but what is there is not bad. If you are a fan ofOk game is not actualy that bad. It is an obvious console conversion that wa snot finished but what is there is not bad. If you are a fan of the terminator story line then this is an almost must. As it explains where alot of the characters come from. There is a fair amount of weapons and the cover system is awsome (Best to date). It has its flaws but the gameplay is playable and a must for Terminator fans. Expand

    Standard Movie licensed game, which is forgettable.
    Maybe story is not same as that shown in movie, but still not interesting, with 2-3 types

    The game is mediocre. Graphics are okay but it feels a little outdated. The only setting you can change is the resolution, no high or low The game is mediocre. Graphics are okay but it feels a little outdated. The only setting you can change is the resolution, no high or low like all modern games have. The fights are pretty generic, it's the same tactic over and over again. Though later on you get to ride in vehicles which made this game a little more enjoyable. The game is awfully short, it couldn't have taken more than 3 hours to beat it. When the credits rolled out i thought "Wait... that's all?!?" Expand

    This game seems to be the result of a unfinished mixing. The campaign is too short and the lack of a multiplayer mode is felt quickly. This game seems to be the result of a unfinished mixing. The campaign is too short and the lack of a multiplayer mode is felt quickly. Backups are automated do not know when they take place and if our progress is saved or not. In addition, there are bugs that force the player to start from beginning if it has stopped play at defined points of the campaign. Expand
