Honest Gamers writes: "With bland environments, repetitive level design, a total of maybe five enemy types, a short campaign that shouldn't last you more than five or six hours and game-crashing bugs, one thing is perfectly clear: Terminator Salvation shouldn't serve as anyone's introduction to something as awesome as "Terminator." If you can look past that laundry list of flaws and just want an interactive version of the story you love, it'll make a perfect rental, but as a purchase it falls too short to warrant a recommendation. Its developer can and has produced better titles, so take my advice and play one of those instead. That or just watch a "Terminator" movie. I hear that they're great".
