Terminator Salvation – The Game Official Game Description
Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins focuses on the exploits of now 30-year-old John Connor in a world on the road to the extinction of humanity. The game offers players the chance to assume the role of John, battling for survival against the far superior forces of Skynet. Played in a third-person action game, Terminator Salvation features concentrated armed combat against all of the Skynet enemies from the film as well as new enemies specifically designed for the game.
Terminator Salvation – The Game is technically a third person cover-shooter in the same vein as Gears of War and with the same cover shoot mechanics but with the aesthetic of the early phase of the future war seen in the Terminator Salvation movie.
The game is one of the better Terminator games, but was mostly criticised by fans for being too short; which we touched upon in our review of the game.

“The Resistance needs your help!
You are John Connor, a soldier in this post apocalyptic world and it’s up to you to lead your squad of loyal fighters in a desperate battle for survival against the superior forces of Skynet and its deadly Terminators.”Terminator Salvation: The Game
