Information about Terminator Salvation

Terminator Salvation is a third-person shooter action video game, released on May 19, 2009 (8 years ago) to coincide with the release of the movie of the same name on the same week. It is developed by the Halcyon Company's gaming subsidiary, Halcyon Games, along with GRIN and published by Equity Games and Evolved Games. The game was released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, mobile, and iPhone OS. The game takes approximately four hours to complete and has no extra features other than the ability to change the difficulty levels. The "cutscenes" are in-game renders. All of the main information is presented through the musings of the protagonist's squad and the radio calls they periodically make.

Set in 2016 (last year) in Los Angeles, it is an interquel that takes place between the events of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation and follows John Connor (Gideon Emery), and his team, consisting of Angie Salter (Rose McGowan (59 walls)), Barnes (Common) and Blair Williams (Moon Bloodgood). However, Christian Bale refused to lend his voice and likeness for the game. Rose McGowan (59 walls) is in the game as well, voicing the game-exclusive character Angie Salter, who is an ex-high school teacher. On the other hand, Common and Moon Bloodgood are voicing their own characters from the movie (Barnes and Blair, respectively).

Gameplay

Terminator Salvation is a third person shooter where the player needs to "constantly move, flank, cover and utilize their squad to progress." The player must battle Skynet enemies from the upcoming movie as well as new enemies specifically designed for the game.

The game features a campaign that can be played alone or cooperatively with one other local player via split-screen.

John Connor and teammate Blair Williams are playable in the co-op version. There is also a cover system, which is acclaimed by critics, in which is effective and has a locator in which players can switch covers. Weapons can be switched, and ammo and bombs can be added. Although the players begin with an M4, other weapons can be found, such as a rocket laucher, grenade launcher, shotgun and heavy machinegun. Pipe bombs and grenades can be switched as the player's bomb. Enemies' A.I. are extremely intellegent - detecting soldiers once they are hit, and T-600s which try to kill the player physically, moving around terrain.

Plot

The game begins with the war between humans and machines. John Connor reflects on the old days of preparing for the future battle, but is beginning to lose hope by the mass number of human losses. Returning to an evac point with Blair Williams and other soldiers, they battle their way through machines to discover that there are no helicopters waiting for them. Escaping in trucks instead, the group are attacked by a Hunter-Killer aircraft. After John Connor manages to destroy the aircraft, a T-600 appears and kills a member of his team. Although they find the trucks and drive away, a T-600 kills the driver of one of the vehicles and chases after the Resistance fighters. Blair and John destroy the machine.

The team travels underground, then above again, battling machines. Marks is killed by an ambush from machines, but the surviving trio manages to reach the evac point, meeting soldiers. Aerostats attack, and Connor, Williams, Rogers and others go outside to take care of them. Rogers is killed in the ensuing battle. A Resistance team led by soldier David Weston (Sean Cory Cooper) asks for help, but transmission is lost. The team then tries to make a landing place for the chopper. The chopper, lands, rescues the team, but Connor and Williams stay behind to rescue Weston's team. Luckily, the duo survives an attack by a harvester, which destroys the choppers. They escape the harvester by going into the sewers.

A rescue team, Epsilon, has a chopper going down, so the duo checks for survivors. They rescue four soldiers, Angie (Rose McGowan (59 walls)), an unknown, Deckard (Joe Camareno) and Dobkin (Nolan North). They fight a legion of machines, with one soldier dead. They decide to head for an old Resistance outpost, resupply there, and separate - The duo going to Skynet while the other team going to head for safety. Deckard is killed by a T-600, and the team is forced to retreat. They manage to destroy two T-600s. They have to retreat, but with no way out, the team are forced to destroy the T-600s. Dobkin is mortally injured in the process, leaving the three of them left.

The three continue to go to Skynet while defending themselves. They decide to go to a tower so they can see Skynet patrols to plan a route to rescue Weston. They encounter T-600s with rubber skin, which the trio destroy. Connor warns the other two about the T-800, which has real full-covered skin. They reach the tower. They encounter a hunter-killer, but Connor, Williams and Angie manage to destroy it. There are too many machines on the street, so the three decide to go to Union Station to the subway, following all tracks to Skynet. They make it to the subway.

They traverse their way to a hidden survivalist camp. They seem to, at first, not trust them (because of the T-600 skin jobs), but they manage to gain their trust. They say they have not been encountered with Skynet for a long time. The leader, named Warren (Ed O' Ross), leads him to Barnes (Common), who will supply them. Machines come, and Connor, Williams and Barnes fight off the machines while Warren and Angie evacuate the area. Barnes reveals that machines actually come every two months. They destroy the machines by detonators, and everybody evacuates by train. Connor and Williams defend the train by missile laucher. They stop to rescue other people from machines and succeed. They escape, but the train derails, so they go on foot to a truck depot, rendezvouing with other soldiers. Warren drives a school bus, while Connor and Williams defend the bus. They save the bus. They separate ways, but Warren is says they can visit them anytime. Warren still has doubts of their plan, saying that they could not communicate as long as a Skynet communications tower is still standing. Barnes joins the three, saying he's tired of running.

Battling numerous machines to infiltrate the Skynet compound, the alarm is accidentally triggered when Connor steals important documentation. Whilst Barnes sets up the explosives, Connor, Angie and Blair hold off T-600s and T-7-Ts. With the explosives successfully going off, they run in to the elevator to escape. However, with the control panel located outside, Angie sacrifices herself so that John Connor and the others can return to the surface. John is troubled with guilt, but Blair explains he had helped Angie to fight, and she believed he could help the humans win.

Connor is fixing what appears to be a vehicle. He calls his base (answered by teammate Linda (Lupe)), saying he needs airpower to rescue Weston's team. Linda says it is going to be a problem, because of a harvester. That won't be a problem, Connor says, because Connor reprogrammed a Hunter-Killer tank, and programmed it to go straight to Skynet. He does not have control of the guns, though. Warren's team returns, and apologizes.

They first have to locate and destroy Skynet's anti-aircraft turrets. They destroy four area of turrets and machines, but the tank took too much damage. Connor suggests that they could deactivate them on foot. Connor, Williams and Barnes is joined by three men to deactivate the turrets and find Weston's men. Warren and the others guard Connor by destroying as many machines as possible.

They traverse Skynet and destroy all machines, so they find Weston and his men. Warren's men will escort them to the vehicles, while Connor, Williams, Weston and Barnes go through the service tunnels to deactivate the turrets.

The four try to make it to the control room. Connor shuts them down for a few minutes, enough time to get them out of Skynet. The four attempts to escape Skynet before they destroy the base. They destroy the base, with the four safe, and return to their Resistance camp. Connor narrates, saying that he has gained faith by what he is about to create in the future, instead of the past. His creation was thought to be powerful.

Development

The game was first announced on Nov. 15, 2007 (10 years ago) when the Halcyon Company also announced the formation of Halcyon Games, the video game arm of the studio. It had already been in development for several months at GRIN and Halcyon Games, long before filming took place. Peter Levin, a former Disney executive, will head up Halcyon Games as acting CEO. The CEO revealed that Halcyon decided to develop the game internally rather than contract another studio to create the game.

Although a multiplayer mode was originally planned it was decidedly dropped to allow the game to be released on schedule. With Halcyon developments' VP Cos Lazouras stating "It is my opinion to do less better, than more but mediocre. We did get local co-op in which is incredibly cool."

Reception

Terminator Salvation received mixed and negative reviews from critics. Game rankings gave the Xbox 360 version a 55.67%, the PS3 version a 51%, and the pc version a 50%. GameSpot reviewer Chris Watters rated it a 5 out of 10 citing the repetitive combat, mediocre visuals, short length, and that the lead actor of the movie, Christian Bale, did not do the voice acting for the game's John Connor. Hilary Goldstein of IGN gave it a 6.3 out 10 for its passable visuals, bad voice acting, poor ally A.I., and complete lack of replay value.. He also criticized it because Bale's voice was missing. In the video review, IGN didn't like Bale not voicing or the short game, but liked the enemy A.I. and the cover system. Justin Haywald, a reviewer for 1up.com, rated it a D+ noting the lacklustre visuals, the repetitive combat, and bland plot. Will Herring, a reviewer for Gamepro, awarded the game 2 out of 5 stars for its "repetitive levels, incredibly frustrating health system, and mundane gameplay." X-play gave it a 2 out of 5.
