    It brings nothing new in terms of gameplay, but Terminator: Resistance Enhanced has other tricks up its sleeve. Namely a decent story and some of the best use of license to a movie franchise in a long time. If you haven’t played the previous gen version, there’s no better jumping point than here.

    No less janky or unambitious than its 2019 incarnation, Terminator: Resistance Enhanced offers up a mildly polished up experience that is augmented by some initially promising, but ultimately disappointing DLC. That said, for those that passed over the PS4 version of the game, Terminator: Resistance Enhanced nonetheless offers up a compelling slice of well-executed looter shooter goodness that fans of the motion picture saga will find enjoyable and fulfilling in equal measure.

    Although obviously not a high-budget title, Resistance is probably the best Terminator game I’ve ever played. Gunplay is fun, there’s a lot of gear to use and upgrade, you can unlock new skills, and stealth elements make the whole experience pretty varied. The graphics are rather basic though (the PS5 upgrade with 4K resolution makes little difference) and I ran across some sound issues, but in general, I had fun. [08/2021, p.45]

    Terminator: Resistance Enhanced still isn't for everyone, since it's far from the smooth experience that FPS fans have come to expect even with the technical updates for its PS5 release. Nonetheless, it's a game that understands the Terminator franchise, and the heart behind its creation shines through in spite of its limitations.

    While Enhanced can't hide Terminator: Resistance's budget origins, this is a solid licensed game that honors the franchise that spawned it. If you can overlook its budget-related flaws, this is a fairly enjoyable take on the Terminator license.

    Apart from adaptive triggers or some improved visual effects, it is difficult to go into ecstasies in the face of a game that still offers gameplay and a technique that is ten years behind, and it is not very short infiltrated mode that will be a game-changer. However, Terminator Resistance is keeping everything that made it a decent game in 2019. With a price drop, fans and fans of the genre should enjoy it while they wait for more games to come their way.

    Terminator: Resistance Enhanced is a decent looking PS3 game that’s 10 years too late. It adds little value to the disappointing original release, and will only please hardcore fans of the movies.

    This game does an excellent job capturing the first and second movie's atmosphere. Not only that, it explains and expands the lore ofThis game does an excellent job capturing the first and second movie's atmosphere. Not only that, it explains and expands the lore of Terminator. The dim postapocalyptic world combined with great licenced music from the first two Terminator movies gives you the impression that you are actually a resistance soldier fighting Skynet with John Connor and Reese. When we were kids my friends and I were telling stories and pretending fighting Terminators and stuff. If only we could play this game back then, that would be too much excitement for as to handle. I can't be thankful enough to the Reef studios for making the wold of Terminator alive and giving me the opportunity to relive some of my best childhood memories. Expand

    I realy dug this game, we dont get many horror games with a good combat focus anymore. This game has elements of Dead Island , RE7 and AlienI realy dug this game, we dont get many horror games with a good combat focus anymore. This game has elements of Dead Island , RE7 and Alien isolation, in my opinion and mixes aspect from those game very satisfyingly..
    The production value is low unfortunatly, but they still msnage to make the world look artisticly awsome and the characters interesting.
    I had trouble finding how this game performed on consoles.. PS4 its 1080p smooth 60 fps.. Xbox 1X its 4K very unstable at 60 , but fine at 30 and PS5 and PC it runs best.
    I really look foward to this studios next game and hope they can get funded ..

    This game is a budget title, its visuals, voice acting and gameplay are not up to AAA standard so don't have these expectations. That aside,This game is a budget title, its visuals, voice acting and gameplay are not up to AAA standard so don't have these expectations. That aside, the world design, story and atmosphere is excellent.

    This game has scavenging, stealth, hacking, skill trees relationships with Npcs. The game is divided into open areas with a few main and secondary missions, then structured set pieces which are rather good. It's a fun ride for the time that you play. On ps5 the load times and almost instant.

    This game is being sold at a reduced price but don't let that make you think this is not worth your time. I had an excellent time with this game. Maybe you will too!

The original game on ps4 could have been understandably downWith my 20 hours with this game I can honestly say it is not as bad a game. The original game on ps4 could have been understandably down rated. This PS5 enhanced edition is the best way to experience this game. The visual looks sharp and smooth 60 fps frame rate really helps it shine. The way fire looks in this game in a smooth 60fps environment is truly beautiful. The story and voice acting is the worst thing about this game. The gun play feels a bit iffy at times and resources management is just there to add wait to already longish game time. By saying all that I still feel i had some fun with it, Shooting tin can version of Terminator felt bland but still amusing. If this was not a terminator license game I bet the review would have been higher. Another personal nit pick from my experience was the way UI and button prompt looks. It makes the game so ugly to look at in a UI design point of view as this was pulled straight from a 2004 line up. I got this game on sale for mere 25 euros and for the 4k support and 60fps I would back it and say it is not a bad investment. The story was ok the combat was iffy but still fun and the sealth tools given to you feel overpowered but that's what makes this game fun. Just relax your mind and enjoy the goofy voice acting and some Micheal bay style explosions. Expand

    Inverted X axis camera control is not present in this game, thus impossible to play for me.
