Generic and boring, Terminator: Resistance's only redeeming feature is its fan service.

Terminator: Resistance's authentic looks fail to disguise its uninspired design and forgettable action.

There's the endoskeleton of a good movie adaptation here, but with dire graphics, dull combat, and tedious missions this low budget shooter is very easy to resist.

For a title set far into the future, Terminator: Resistance remains disappointingly locked into the past. With lackluster design, story, dialogue, AI, and combat, Terminator: Resistance is a genre example generations out of time. A full-price game offering a budget-price experience just makes it harder to recommend. No one can accuse Resistance of lacking potential, even ambition, but even the most dedicated Terminator fan should wait on a discount, or perhaps say Hasta la Vista altogether.

Turning the Terminator franchise into an enjoyable game experience should be doable, but not on the budget Teyon have tried to do it on. Last-gen issues make this a time traveller that nobody wanted to come back.

A pretty decent game, at least for what we were expecting, but it doesn't stand out in any aspect. Fans of the Terminator franchise will enjoy the story, characters and setting, but there are similar and better games in the market right now.

Terminator: Resistance is an old-school, low budget shooter that does not shine in any of its game mechanics, and offers a weak and uninspired experience, even for long-time Terminator fans.

Terminator Resistance is a good idea poorly executed. Poor in the visual, it has mechanics that don't surprise despite having good stealth phases and elements from various genres. Its original story and its good atmosphere will please to fans of the franchise, but little else.

That’s the problem with Terminator Resistance. It’s weak. It’s unambitious. It takes a license and slaps it on a distinctly average game.

Had Terminator: Resistance released in 2008 it may have been considered one of the better licensed games of its time, but we've come a long way in ten years. In 2019, with excellent licensed titles becoming more common, Terminator: Resistance is mediocre at best. Fans may like it, but they deserve better. Maybe they'll get that game in an alternate future - who knows - but they certainly didn't today.
