While we all sit and wonder if the new Terminator movie is going to be worth the effort, Warner Interactive have shown off a trailer for the accompanying game that I'm actually surprised to be able to say looks pretty good.

Terminator Salvation could, in fact, be the series' salvation after the loathsome T3, where we finally get to see Connor and co take on the HKs in the post-apocalyptic LA James Cameron envisioned all those moons ago.

Hit this link for the Spike TV Videogame Awards debut trailer.

Looks a bit like Gears of War to me. Looks pretty sweet, but it's a movie game, so I wont get my hopes up.

Yeh, I think I'll pass.

I reckon the Terminator brand would convert nicely into a cool MMO if it was done well. Good long-term war with heaps of battles in something other than a swords-and-sorcery environment would be a refreshing change, although as Midda says, everyone seems to screw up their movie licenses just to cash in.

I don't know, the audio on that trailer kind of made me feel like they realise they have something special here (in terms of setting and what the hardcore have been asking for since the first movie), I'm not holding my breath, my interest has gone from zero to at least a 2

its not that the companies intentionally screw up their movie licenses, but rather a problem of the process.

they spend so long putting in competing bids for the right to the license, that there's little time between the end of that process and when they have to launch the game (with the movie, or its lost forever), that the game ends up being rushed, and, inevitably, s***.
