Terminator 3: The Redemption
Terminator 3: The Redemption - XBOX Review
This game is one part third person shooter, one part driving game and one part railed shooter. You will find yourself jumping from one gaming style to another within levels and this helps to keep the excitement levels up high.
The fighting is straight forward, ranging from simple hand to hand combat to various weapons. You can take guns from fallen opponents and put together various combo moves to maximize your impact. You also have the use of the infamous Terminator scan mode – just like in the movies – this is the infrared screen mode that we associate with the films. By killing your enemies you accrue points and these points can be used to power up your terminator in strength, agility, speed and scan vision.
Graphics-wise Terminator 3: The Redemption is very smooth; you will not be seeing any glitches or set building as you romp through the levels & as the battle rages there is lots going on in the background. With so much in the way of great visuals that this game can borrow from the movie you will find that the levels are superbly put together and my only criticism would be that sometimes there is not quite enough detail in the scenery. The cut scenes used to tell the story are also very impressive.
Sound was never going to be a problem. Arnold provides the voice over there is lots of music from the movie present & the in game sounds are well above standard. All this helps you to submerge yourself into the roll of the terminator and can make for some incredibly compelling action.
Overall Terminator 3: The Redemption is by far the best T3 game out there and if you are a fan of the movies you could do much worse shooter-wise than become the 101 T-800 Terminator and save the world.
