    We are clear that Terminator: Resistance does not come to compete with the great first-person shooter, but to demonstrate the possibilities offered by a title based on the universe of John Connor. Fans of the saga already have a title with which to face Skynet.

    This is not the Terminator game you have been waiting for. However, in a world that has subjected the license to countless sloppy video game adaptations, Terminator: Resistance shines among them as a beacon of hope. Teyon won't win any awards for this, but there is a clear love for the Terminator franchise and plenty of effort to back it up. Which is more than can be said about most licensed games, past and present.

    A rather bad experience with a total lack of any interest in both its gameplay and story, accompanied by aging graphics.

    Terminator Resistance is yet another faulty game based on a movie. The fanservice is the best part of the entire game. Next to that, the graphics are bad, the Terminators are not that intelligent or frightening, and the world and missions are not interesting. Which could have been a shooter to remember has turned out to be another bad part in a series of bad iterations.

    Terminator: Resistance continues the trend of bad Terminator games and is better off being Terminated into the bin. You won’t be back to play this one, that’s for sure.

    Unlike Rambo: The Video Game, Terminator Resistance does not have this thing more (or less) adding a nice aspect to its nullity. Here, production value has grown, Treyon offering this time a title first thought for those wanting to fall asleep in less than two or designed for time travelers, the title edited by Reef Entertainment seems not only zapped movies after T2 but the evolution of FPS and video game for fifteen years. Nevertheless, by drawing all the same here and there in the ideas to success of the kind, it is a beautiful base of student project which is offered to those eager to hurt themselves.

I am glad that I was not guided by so-called 'professional' reviews, but by the voices of other players because it seems that the taste of reviewers and players is getting more and more different.
    The game has a brilliant atmosphere, also the graphics is quite decent (I've seen both Xbox One X and PS4 Pro version). Night missions look great and scarry (very nice lighting and fire effects - just like in the movies). You can feel the atmosphere of fear all the time, a mission in the hospital, where we have to sneak between Terminator patrols, without having a weapon that could damage them, is great! I also like the story - better than any Terminator movie after the second part. I hope this game will be successful enough to make the next part. I have waited so many years for a game like this in the Terminator universe and I hope that there will be more of them now.

    Not just good but I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. If you need that Terminator itch scratched, this will do it and then some. Gameplay is solid and story is one of the best terminator storylines to date.

    I played for a few hours and had some good fun, some stealth segments, some Elder Scrolls looting system, tasteful sex scene, How the critics found this below a 7 is a mystery to me.

Although I still think the graphics in parts (like when your in tunnels etc) is simple not up to par in 2018. The game does over a lot and the further you get into the game the better it gets. The story which I originally though was weak, you'll fine out that you actions to carry consequences.

    But as for the lag in parts. That is pretty bad in parts even on a PS4 Pro.

    I'm going to be honest. If you are not a fan of the terminator series I would not pick up this game. Anyways the first 2-3 hours of the gameI'm going to be honest. If you are not a fan of the terminator series I would not pick up this game. Anyways the first 2-3 hours of the game were kinda of boring in some way but later in the game it gets pretty fun. The ai could use some serious work though. So many times I would walk in front of a t 800 and it would just stare at me. Also so many times seeing terminator shooting at random things like the sky and ground for some reason, but it it created so many laughs. The middle to ending of the game I enjoyed it as a terminator fan but the story was kinda short. I wish it was longer. Especially at 60 bucks. I would wait until it's on sale but otherwise I think it was good. Probably the best terminator game to date. Expand

    Really disappointed. I was looking forward for this game and turns out to be really bad.
