I'm a big fan of the Terminator films (although they have got progressively worse, as multiple sequels usually do) and have been watching for a sale on this game. I've just seen it's £23 this week. My 'target' was £20 but I'm tempted to splash out the extra £3 now. What are people's views? I know from reviews, it's a short game so I'm not expecting endless hours of gameplay. Putting this to one side, is it entertaining? I have good memories of playing Terminator on a megadrive years ago

Hi Cap, been a long time!

I'm also a huge Arnie/Terminator fan and I absolutely loved this game - it's infinitely more entertaining than Dark Turd was. I sank 18 hours into the game although I did make a point of getting every single achievement. There's some genuinely tense sections early on when you are simply powerless against the terminators. You simply don't have the firepower to take them on and instead have to cower behind cover when they come near you like a little girl lol. There's a decent story - a little cheesy but that fits with the 80's theme. Graphics are very decent but not fantastic but that doesn't matter. They've really nailed that post apocalyptic future world that we saw glimpses of in the original movies. There are so many cool little touches in the game that it's clear it was made by fans, for fans. Sound effects of the plasma rifles are awesome too. One of the best games I played last year. Oh and if you are wondering why you never saw me play it well that's because, ahem, I was playing it on my PC...

Hello both. Just bought and finished this - thought quite fun, although the graphics are decidedly unpolished!
