Gamespot : Terminator Salvation review (PC version)

Chris Watters from Gamespot writes:

"If you've ever wondered why movie tie-in games have such a bad reputation, Terminator Salvation can provide an instructive example. Though this third-person shooter is technically sound, it seems to rely entirely on the presumption that you'll be so jazzed to be playing as characters from the movie that you won't notice how boring and shallow the action is. Most of the game has you jogging from skirmish to skirmish, fighting the same three enemies and using the same cover-and-flank maneuver."

The Good
* Post-apocalyptic LA looks suitably ruined
* Interesting cover mechanic.

The Bad
* Simplistic, repetitive combat
* Only five hours long; full retail price
* So-so visuals hamper cutscenes
* Problematic on-rails sequences
* Doesn't convey any sense of drama or excitement.

There isn't any.

That's the point.

Wtf was the devs thinking?5 hours long?what did they fill? A 750mb gamecube disc?

I was hoping for a semi-decent (at least) Terminator game.

I will never forget the old Arcade Terminator with the gun!

Matpan3374d ago

That arcade was THE terminator game... How much would one of those cost nowadays?...

SlyGuy3372d ago

I could always find room in the house for that arcade setup.

A lot of reviewing sites are criticizing the visuals but I think the game looks pretty damn good from the screenshots and gameplay that I saw.
