Terminator 4, also known as the Terminator salvation is an action genre game that was released on May 19, which is about the same time that the movie, of the same name was released. The supporting platforms include, PlayStation 3, iPhone OS, Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. It is played in the single player mode and the Local Co-op mode as well. If you love action and if you are already a fan of the terminator series then you will not be disappointed in playing this game. You are familiar with the characters, so the plot is not too far fetched to what you already know or at least imagine to be.
Terminator 4 was produced by GRIN and published by Equity Games and Evolved games.
The game is also a third person shooter game. This is whereby the player is required to do a series of flanking, covering constantly and also using the squad to progress. As a player, you are required to fight Skynet enemies derived from the film and the new enemies that have been designed specifically for this game. Either you can play this game alone or you can play with one other local player by means of a split screen.
John Connor, the main actor and the main component of this plot, and Blair Williams play in the co-op version.
When it comes to weapons in this game, you are spoiled for choice. You are also allowed to switch between weapons during the course of the game. M4 is the permanent weapon that you use throughout the game, but you can switch this weapon with a grenade launcher, a heavy machinegun, a rocket launcher and a shotgun. You can also add ammo and bombs to your collection, whatever fits your needs at any pointy of the game. There is great flexibility with the weaponry, which makes the game even more interesting.
Gideon Emery’s voice is used for John Connor’s character; Sean Cory Cooper’s voice is used for David Weston’s character while Rose McGowan’s voice is used for Angie Slater’s character. These are just a few of the characters that you will meet in the game.
