Worryingly, I'd be more surprised if it wasn't total bollocks.

Worryingly, I'd be more surprised if it wasn't total bollocks.

Before it was releases I caught a few interviews with the devs and listening to them it didn't sound as bad as it is. Infact it almost sounded good until the game hit shelves and I played it.

So which one is worse GI Joe or Terminator Salvation?

Ironically, while I was sitting through that movie, I kept thinking it would've been better as a game, seeing as it was really just explosions and people running around.

There was T2 tie in on the Commodore 64 that I thought was class at the time...but I was much younger. I still remember loving the "repair" mini-games and the section were you had to escape the truck in the overflow system.

It's not bad. It's just not good. The review is pretty solid. The most memorable thing is the loading screen. Forget the story, the gameplay is satisfactory despite a few bugs and it being short. The climax is very anti-climactic (I was shocked to learn I had finished the game). It's just Yet Another FPS. I'm still waiting for a decent Terminator game. I think I've played them all and they have all been underwhelming. With teh source material you'd think someone could do something decent. Forget the story, forget voice actors that are famous, just give me a game with decent gameplay in a cool universe.
