In Terminator: Salvation, based on the "Terminator: Salvation" film from Warner Bros. Pictures and Sony Pictures, players assume the role of John Connor, a soldier in the resistance, battling for survival against the far superior forces of Skynet.

Terminator: Salvation is an intense action-packed third-person shooter featuring concentrated armed combat against all of the Skynet enemies from the film and new killer machines specifically designed for the game. Taking place two years before the events of the film set in a post apocalyptic, decimated Los Angeles, players will be lead through a visceral, story and character driven gaming experience.

Featuring intense third-person action, Terminator: Salvation will take combat to the next level with iconic enemies, cinematic fight sequences and advanced weaponry, drawn directly from the film, as well as an innovative, multi-layered cover mechanic.

New Installment of Terminator Mythology: Set two years prior to the "Terminator: Salvation" film, players will get the opportunity to be John Connor for the first time and continue the epic fiction of the Terminator mythology.

Unrelenting Intelligent Robotic Enemies: Unrelenting and incredibly resilient iconic enemies from the Terminator franchise fight to the bitter end on land and in the sky. Designed to pursue the player by any means necessary, damaged or broken enemies will literally claw their way forward to inflict harm.

    Advanced Destructible Cover Gameplay: Terminator: Salvation will incorporate advanced cover mechanics which allows players to use the destructible environment as protection and strategically navigate through enemy entrenched territory. The cover mechanic's multi-faceted design changes the way "cover" gameplay is executed.

      Diverse Array of Advanced Weaponry: The player has access to a wide array of weapons including shotguns, fully automatic machine guns, huge mounted weaponry, grenades, rocket-launchers and even a plasma firing Skynet tank.

        Rugged Armored Vehicles Gun Fights: Pursue, attack, or evade enemies through post-apocalyptic environments on foot or inside rugged armored vehicles in extremely kinetic and extensive cinematic gun battles.

         A fair attempt

        If there was an option to give this game 3.5 stars, I would have chosen that because it is better than the mediocre inferences implied by 3/5.... but it isn't a truly great game for a few reasons.

        After watching the cut-scene preview, I had high hopes for the game but let's face it, we all know what the PS3 is capable of graphically and this isn't quite up to scratch. You only need look at what Konami did with Metal Gear 4 and, if that's the benchmark, the developers have fallen short with this outing.

        The gameplay is a little rough around the edges, although strangely addictive. The enemy AI is actually surprisingly good and the machines do attempt, albeit half-heartedly, to flank you where possible. The T-600s are notoriously hard to kill unless you have a grenade or pipe-bomb up your sleeve, which is actually great because the Terminator franchise has never been about stand-up fights - a lot is running away if possible.

        The aspect I love about the game in the short time I've been playing it is the great implementation of the 'cover' system. John moves fluidly from a burned out car to a bullet-ridden concrete column via a couple of rusted, war-torn barrels so well that out-flanking your enemies soon becomes a breeze and leaves you with a quiet sense of satisfaction at how well you can navigate the battlefield. It's just as well too as the 'spiders' can only actually be destroyed from behind. Cover fire and quick thinking play an important role in advancing through the deserted streets and the machines are never far behind.

        My main problem with the game is the graphics though and you have to feel they rushed it through to get it released in time for the film that's out in cinemas... oh would you look at that... next week. What a coincidence. They aren't the worst on PS3 but they are far from the best and that's an unfortunate aspect of what could have been a great release.

        I am still only a few levels into the game and there will hopefully be many surprises still in store but my opinion so far is "could be better".

         OK but No replay value

        After playing 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', which I enjoyed a great deal, I rented this game in the hope of finding yet another movie tie-in that could possibly confute that deeply rooted preconception about film-based video games, partly relying on all the hype that had been built around this game before it came out. Sadly enough, the hope of getting my hands on yet another excellent movie tie-in came to a screeching halt the moment I started playing the first chapter of this game. However many flaws a video game has, I would always try to find something good in it, looking at what might prospectively make it stand out. I did so with 'Terminator: Salvation', yet to no avail whatsoever.

        From a story perspective, as the game is seemingly set two years prior to the related film, I had expected to find a connection between the two, such as insights into John Connor's life or a prequel to the film plot. Regrettably enough, it was not the case. Set in a post-nuclear Los Angeles entirely overrun by the machines, the story revolves around John Connor ( entirely different from the one portrayed by Christian Bale in its film counterpart) and his attempt to rescue three of his men held captive in Skynet territory. Commencing with a regroup operation, the game soon evolves into a rescue mission when the resistance leaders refuse to jeopardise their lives to salvage the three prisoners, acknowledging the nature of the suicidal mission. Whereupon, the stout-hearted idealist, John Connor takes matters into his own hands and embarks into a suicidal mission that - woefully- will only keep players busy for a handful of hours, never providing any twists nor turns to make the story more interesting.

        From a game-play standpoint, things just go from bad to worse. Whereas the story is clichéd and much too obvious, the altruistic message that it conveys may just give it that glimmer of hope in terms of gamers' appreciation. On the other hand, it really takes a lot of effort to find something decent in the game-play. In this third-party cover shooter, you will encounter a limited variety of machines throughout the game. Without blowing anything out of proportion, I could only count four types, of which the one that caught my attention was the T-600, an endoskeleton prototype of the legendary T-800. During a game segment, I caught a glimpse of a colossal machine, namely the "Harvester", which, owing to its gargantuan proportion, I thought would be the final boss, only to be sorely disappointed at the end of the game. Notwithstanding the ridiculously limited variety of enemies and the lack of a final boss, another major flaw is the absence of any side missions, puzzles collectibles that might prevent the game from resembling a first-generation shooter. In particular, the absence of many such elements reflects directly on the limited number of trophies - only 12 trophies of which 11 gold ones and 1 platinum- which you achieve simply by completing each of the nine chapters. Having pointed out all its defects, what also made me wonder a lot about the online function is the odd addition of a cooperative mode instead of an actual multiplayer feature that may truly have prevented this video game from being utterly shoddy.

        In conclusion, my only recommendation for this game goes out to those who are keen on collecting trophies, for 'Terminator: Salvation' is one of those games where it is "impossible" not to get the platinum trophy. However, provided that the game can be completed in a few hours' time, I strongly urge everyone to hire it out only.

         A monster of a game! With a huge wealth of amazing content!

        Literally the pinnacle of the action/adventure genre. Games like God of war, Uncharted and Just cause simply cannot compete. It is a truly heartfelt masterpiece and you can empathise with all the blood, sweat and tears that the developers put into it.

        The graphics make Killzone 2 look like a cartoon and the scale of it all makes God of war look last gen. The cover system is simply flawless and unparalleled. Buy it, just buy it my friends; we have here before us, the definition of gaming!

         A Good Game

        I seriously cant understand why this game has sparked the kind of response that it has. I would of given it 3.5 stars and it would be worthy of that. The only way i can describe it is just a good game.

        -Wepons have a real satisfying feeling when you shoot them, i know it sounds odd, but when you shoot an M4 that sounds wrong it really puts me off.
        -The graphics are very good. I dont get those who have said they are poor. They arent breathtaking, however, you do get some pretty good views.
        -Terminators are hard to kill. Why are people complaining about having to flank them, i think it adds realism to it. And yes if you try to flank them, some times they will follow you meaning you cant shoot them, however it then produces another challenge of helping your team get the shot on them,
        -Tophies are good. I dont care about them to be honest, but a gold per mission was quite satifying.
        -Its a game that very good to play on if you just want to relax. Say if you cant be bothered with another shooter/adventure. This game is very easy to just pick up and melo out.

        -Very short. I did this in 4 hours.
        -Straight foward story.
        -Only 3 types of machines to kill. This was very disapointing.
        -Limited guns. M4, Shotgun, LMG. Thats it bar some explosive wepons, i.e grenade, C4, RPG and thumper.
        -Voice overs. It would of been nice to have Bale's voice but i can live without it. The worst thing is you go through some parts of the game where everyones voice has a long echo on it. It gets annoying quickly.

        All the cons are fairly minor, and if you are looking for a good, not brilliant, not bad, shooter then this is the one. It's cheap, it';s relaxed, and it's satisfying to play.
