    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.

    Right, first of all I just can not understand why many companies have reviewed this game so low! I have just completed it for the fifth timeRight, first of all I just can not understand why many companies have reviewed this game so low! I have just completed it for the fifth time and about to start it again, even though there are no incentives at all to play through again once completed (e.g. new enemies, different costumes, weapons etc.)

    Ok, maybe the fact that the first Terminator movie is my favourite movie of all time is one of the reasons I enjoyed this game so much.

    But there is still so much to like.. Likeable characters throughout with great engagement and interaction, multiple choice endings dependant on the choices you make throughout the game. And oh the music, is just.. incredible! From the title screen right up until the credits screen, the music is mindblowingly good! The graphics admittedly could be better (this is where it’s plain obvious that this game was made on a small budget) but they’re not the worst in the world, and lighting effects are up there with some of the best I’ve ever seen in a videogame! The moonlight, the fire.. just beautiful!

    It’s a long game too if you want to enjoy and explore, collect everything and complete all of the side missions. There’s always plenty to do and it just never gets boring.

    Probably my favourite parts of the game are the hideout and shelter ‘lobby’ parts. They are so cosy, makes you feel right at home and the nostalgia feels are immense (the shelter is taken straight out of the future flashback scenes in the first Terminator movie)

    The final battle is absolutely epic! Exciting, adrenaline pumping, action packed, drama packed with possibly the best music I’ve ever heard in my life once you’re at the final part.

    I’m getting emotional writing this because of just how good the game is and how disappointed I am with the reviews I’ve read on it.

    I do feel that a lot of care and effort was put in to creating this game. Probably more so than was put into all of the movies after the first two legendary titles.

    I agree that you’d probably have to be a major Teminator fan to fully appreciate this game, but then, who the hell isn’t one?!

    Great game, fully recommend. Buy it, I love it and I doubt you’d be disappointed!

    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

    This game is a good game. The levels are different open world levels that you have an objective to complete.

    It has been described as
    This game is a good game. The levels are different open world levels that you have an objective to complete.

    It has been described as "Fallout light" I think that is fair as it is very similar to Fallout, though the multiple choice endings could've had more polish as it ends with a slideshow with what happened to each character. Your actions have consequences so if you do the side quests which are supplied by characters, you can grow a relationship and change the outcome. These side quests are fetch quests, but they are in the open world mission so you can complete them whilst completing the main mission so it okay.

    Also there are romance scenes, you don't see anything. I don't really think they are needed, but who cares.

    You can complete a couple times and it takes around 10 hours for one play through, it took me a bit longer first time.
