Terminator Salvation Review

Whether or not you'll want to play Terminator Salvation all comes down to one question: Do you care about trophies/achievements? If yes, you're in luck. One 5-hour playthrough on hard will net you the full suite. If no, you're not missing anything. Salvation is a mess. Your allies are complete idiots, but enemies are even worse, fluctuating between omniscience and obliviousness. Fighting the same three enemy types is extremely repetitive and the game becomes a grind to the next checkpoint since the story offers no salvation from the tiresome gameplay. To make matters worse, technical problems ranging from an unreliable framerate to complete game freezes make trudging through this already bland action game even more of a chore than it had to be. At $60, Salvation is a complete ripoff, but if you really want the trophies/achievements, give it an overnight rental.
