Excerpt: Videogames based on movie licenses have a well-deserved reputation for being terrible. While there are exceptions -- last year's X-Men Origins: Wolverine comes to mind -- Terminator Salvation isn't going to change anyone's opinion that these games should usually be avoided like a leprous prostitute with a gaping flesh wound.

Summary: A short and mostly fun 3rd person action game, this one is more for the fans of the Terminator series rather than someone jumping in for the first time. I’d recommend waiting on this one until the price drops significantly, or if you really, really want the quick platinum trophy, rent it first. Even fans may balk at the shortness of the game and the complete lack of any resemblance to Christian Bale in John Conner.

Excerpt: At first, such encounters are thrilling because you don't know what's going on and it's easy to die. Any battle is epic. Then you learn how to utilize cover and you discover that you can basically just draw fire from behind a barrier while your allies shoot everyone from behind. That strategy works most of the time and when it doesn't, that only means that the roles have reversed. You're never required to do anything more mentally challenging than sneak and shoot.
