Rated 1 out of 10 by skillz_that_kill Thanks for the trophies you lack luster game...
Well, I rented this thankfully because it is awful. I first played it because I thought it would be cool, but then I realized that all it does is cause frustration. I mean it glitches like crazy and the voices are annoying as well as playing the same level over an over again.... Despite it saying that I am advancing. The textures never change. However I played through this game because it has a lot of Gold Trophies and it is easy to obtain the Platinum Trophy. I regret even doing that. This is possibly the worst game I've played. Let me break it into pros and cons for you to understand...<br>Pros:<br>>Trophies are easy to get and are high level trophies<br>>It is funny to see the game freeze up while you are getting far in a mission and it is funny to see the game in general<br>Cons:<br>> The game's release!<br>Once again don't buy this game only rent it if you want the easy trophies for it... Hope this helps you determine if you want it. Happy gaming!<br>
Rated 7 out of 10 by PS3luver not that good.
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. This quickly becomes repetitive despite the fact that the environments are diverse and detailed, and the few on-rails sequences fail to inject any substantial excitement into the proceedings. The campaign is only about five hours long, there is no online component, and the only multiplayer option is playing the campaign in split-screen mode. It's a sparse effort, yet it is brazenly offered at full retail price. Suffice it to say, it isn't worth it, and even Terminator fans looking for a weekend rental should prepare for disappointment.
Rated 6 out of 10 by the_elite_king86 nah...
I rented this game for the weekend and beat the whole thing, split screen, with my little brother, in about 5 hours. We practically passed levels with flying colors, since it was the same enemies every time. For example, the spider robot. All you have to do is shoot its red light with any gun, and go behind it, and shoot the hell out of its battery. Way to easy on multiplayer, and we were playing on normal, so don't say we were on easy. I wouldn't recommend this game to anybody who wants to play this game forever, like warhawk, or COD. The story line is basically just running from place to place, shooting T600s (Terminators) to rescue a group of lost soldiers. BORING!. The graphics are ok but not the best, along with the sound. It has no mulitplayer, making you take it back to where you rented it from once you're done with it. Personally, I wouldn't buy this game, since I like games which have multiplayer online. I hope you make the right choice!
Rated 6 out of 10 by TOPHINATORMAN Easiest Platinum Ever: 5 Hours
As the title states, I beat this 3rd person shooter on the hardest difficulty in five hours. The game is not challenging. You fight the same four types of bad guys throughout the entire, short campaign. I had low expectations for the game headed into it and only bought it to get ten or eleven gold trophies and a platinum. Do yourself a favor and play it on hard, by yourself not co-op and you WILL get the platinum trophy. It gives you the one for beating it on Medium even though you don't play it on that difficulty. Nice, right? One thing that really bothered me about this game was the sound. The explosions sounded so fake, it was embarrassing. It sounded like a really bad Playstation 1 or 2 game. Sometimes the people would randomly get really loud and that was annoying. There was a good deal of lag when there were lots of bad guys as well. As you see, this is a game that you buy, get the trophies, return it, and get a full refund. It is below average and you will have no desire to keep it in your game collection. Trust me.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BOSTON Very Clean Game
Terminator salvation is a very clean and polished game just like the Uncharted series. The graphics are outstanding and the gameplay is fantastic. If you have seen the movie than you will love the game. Movie games were not so good for years until 2009 came when breakout smash hit games that were made from movies came out. Ghostbusters, Terminator, and many other yet to come out.Although ther is not a great variety of weapons the guns they do have are great. there are two great machine guns, a shotgun, a rocket launcher, and a few others. Terminator Salvation also has a great cover system, very similar to uncharted. Now since this game is so clean its NOT like gears of war witch would be like a wild college party game as Terminator Salvation would be like a game in the coffee shop. Very clean and put together well and with thought.people are saying the length is to short. Well its about 4 hours but there are 9 chapters with great replay value. So thankyou for listening to this review and i hope this made an impcat on your next tough game decision.
Rated 10 out of 10 by T-1994 Must buy for Terminator fans
I pre-ordered this game and just got it today, and it is great! I was very pleased with the graphical representation of the game; its no Crysis, but the graphics are still pretty good. When you compare this with other Terminator games, this is leagues ahead. The premise is that you are John Conner and you must save some soldiers stranded behind enemy lines. Good: 1) Great enemy AI. 2) Great cover system. 3) Fun to play. 4) Great prequal to the movie. 5) Co-Op play. 6) Great Story. Bad: 1) Length- about 4-6 hours. 2) Only 3 types of enemies. 3) Team AI can be a bit stupid at times. 4) Sometimes has bad frame rates at places. Basically, this is a a great game, it won't win a Game of the Year award, but still great. Hopefully they would make some possible DLC or a multiplayer patch, because this game really needs some multiplayer. If you are a Terminator fan, you have to buy this.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BOSTON best game of the summer
terminator salvation is easily in a race for the best game of the summer and the reason i say that is because it still trails ghost busters. this game is so amazing everything about the graphics are polished well and the game play flows smoothly. the sound is the same voices of the movie and a great looking game from every side of the table. i recieved this game for my birthday and was so excited. here i sit toooooo excited on my birthday i just had to rite a review. i hope this changes the minds of some of u guys. we need to all work together to boost of the ratings on this game. it deserves more than a lousy 5.0 we need to try to at least get it up to a 9.0 before the bow wows screw everything up. thanks for listening to everything i had to say i hope i have a great b day as i hope u got a good tihing of a day or somthin thanks buy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BOSTON amazing graphics, Amazing gameplay, Amazing game
Terminator salvation is rather short but fun. It was made very delicate and with a lot of work put into it. The game play is just fantastic and it is one of the greatest third person shooters that i found. If you saw the movie than you are probably going to be a big fan of the game. There is also a great use of weapons.Although the ratings are not that great you need to see the bigger picture of the game. Most people bash this game because of the game. The smash hit game Uncharted was only about 8 hours and had decent replay value just like Terminator Salvation. Its about 5 hours but has great replay value as well. So my point is a game can last forever if you want to just keep playing it. I can tell you you wont get board of this game. So go rent it if your not sure about or by a used copy and return it within a week at gamestop.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Greedo I wont be back.
This game is by far one of the worst games i have played in a long time i was really looking forward to killing me some machines i just did not realize it would be the same 2 most of the time, you only fight spider bots and scout flying drones most of the time. The game got repetitive within the first 30 mins of playing the dificulty is high considering you couldnt hit the side of a barn with any of the guns. This is a perfect example of why movie games should be banned thank god for rentals i would definetly ask for my money back had i bought this game. The weapons are lame as well and you don't get more than 2 different guns, the game also pauses and resets constantly for no reason. I would rather watch paint dry that play this thing. Stay clear of this train wreck.
Rated 1 out of 10 by StreetFighter Fan Should Have Stayed On The Assembly Line And Scrapped
This game was rushed during its production cycle by its creators just so it could coincide with the release of the Terminator movie to help hype up the game to sell more copies, very bad move because the game doesn't even feel like a terminator game and became very bored with it before even completing the first chapter. It's piss poor in every area except for the graphics and sound, i'd be embarrassed to call myself a game producer with a result from a game like this. If they wanted to know how to make a Terminator game or what direction/example to go in all they had to do was look no further than Terminator 3 on PS2, there was no need to rush this game out and would have sold many more copies if the game was made correctly with time used wisely in the production cycle.
