"I just had some hands on time with Terminator Salvation and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Despite being a huge fan of the first two Terminator movies, I can't say I was looking forward to either the new movie or its accompanying game, but playing a few levels has actually changed my mind.
It's essentially a Gears Of War clone, which doesn't earn it any points for originality or imagination, but does actually suit the setting really well. In fact, I would even argue that the Gears-style combat system works better when fighting enemies with specific weak points, as you do here. Flanking is usually an option in Gears, but seldom a necessity. In Terminator Salvation, you have to get around behind your foes just to stand a chance. I'm not saying it's better than Gears Of War or anything, but it's good enough to be playable and fun."
