    Games like this are the reason GRIN was closed.

    There is no shortage of shooters, whether they be first or third person. Terminator: Salvation is a third person shooter, but is of the sloppiest grade. Like other popular (and better) TPS games, you can take cover behin... Read Full Review

    Rough

    Video games and movies coexist to serve human beings a general purpose; to entertain us. Then sometime in history, someone thought it would be a pretty cool idea to mix them both together - The outcome was E.T for the At... Read Full Review

    Nothing new, yet a rather good game especially considering the reviews.

    I started to play this game with a little pessimism, given that I've read the reviews and it wasn't anything impressive. I must admit that in the end I was rather satisfied with this game, though it has absolutely no re... Read Full Review

    Combat fatigue in a very positive sense. Simple but amazing production values and a lot of fun.

    I really don´t understand the trashing of this game from almost everyone. Don´t you hear how you sound like a bunch of spoiled whiners? "It´s fun but not much more". How can a computer-game be much more than fun? Wha... Read Full Review

    short and expensive ... but it has its (few) good moments

    If you are a fan of the Terminator games, then by all means get it or rent it, but be aware of that this game is extremely short. Others may skip this game guilt-free altogether (till the price gets much lower). I'm not ... Read Full Review

    GRIN royally messed this franchise up

    I've just played the first 2 chapters of this title at a friend's place who got it on the x360. When I saw that GRIN was developing this title. I paused for a second and pondered. Would they make another Wanted weapon... Read Full Review

    Even for a movie tie-in this steaming hunk of trash is pretty low on the pole.

    Even for a movie tie-in this steaming hunk of trash is pretty low on the pole. This game is very uninspiring in both its design and execution. While fun initially, combat is simplistic with few options that are common... Read Full Review

    For all of those who say it doesn't worth it

    Based on the Ghost Recon engine, this game if not the best is the closest thing I've ever played by far, I like a lot the fact you are for once john connor, you fight against the machines, even there are like four of the... Read Full Review

    Caveat emptor

    Sorry...I meant a 'vomitous masterpiece'. There simply was not an option for the entire phrase I wanted to use. I didn't really buy it, I borrowed it because the last movie tie in I BOUGHT was Spider-Man 2, which was a l... Read Full Review
