TIPS: When taking out the AA emplacements just take your time. I know its a bit overwhelming but every time you take complete an objective (taking out one or two Aa guns) the game will auto save. So dont worry about killing all the enemies as fast as you can. If you take a lot of damage it is fine, just as long as you destroy the AA guns.
Don't use both guns at the same time. Alternate using them. Just in case one overheats your not dead in the water, so to speak.

Is it worth a buy? I'd like the G and the gameplay looks pretty good, but I cant find a review and you know by first hand experience.

Also the guide looks very thin. It'd be alot better if you could post some details on tricky parts of missions or something like that.

Eg. Instead of 'You'll need to complete the 2nd chapter'

You could put 'You'll need to complete the 2nd chapter. Below

I'll finish message in ten minutes. Sorry, but I need to eat.

Personally, I think this game isnt all that good. There was to much hype for this game. Its plays like dark sector. Which IMO ruins the game. I noted a lot of games seem to rip off/use other games engines. The story line is short. Which is an advantage for us to 1K this game really quickly. But I think this game could have been a hell of a lot better for what its worth



I am gonna try something with this game. I noticed every time you click continue game it gives you a choice what difficulty you want. I am gonna back up my fiancee's save to my mem. unit and play the rest of chapter 7 and 8 using easy. and once I get to chapter 9 I will change it to hard. And I'll see if the achievement for hard pops

I know what you mean with the hype. I didnt get a chance to see gameplay of Terminator but wherever I went people were talking about it. Nice to see another game fail the general populations expectations. I'd like to rent it, but I don't rent games.

Just a tip for some people that the shotgun is a must because it kills hornets in one shot, and the very first assault rifle you get is helpful because when you run low on ammo, your teammates can replenish your ammo count.

yeah, but i guess all games need a guide, but most guides give you some detail and not just a repeat of the achievement. I do understand its a work in progress, but it seems to me like it is more of a race to put a guide up first. It's not about who can put it up first, it's about how well the guide is written. You should put a bit more of a walk through in for each level. Let people know where it ends and any tough spots inside the level. Even if it's not much, something is better than nothing. Don't just throw a guide up and use work in progress or I'll add more later as an excuse to put it up first.

did you find any obstacles that made you repeat certain parts of the game ?
3:30 is the total time you spend wih the game or just the pure summary playtime ? I wonder...

this game seems to be even shorter than Wanted. at least the latter has some achievements that make you going to play more than once.

Chapter 7 is the only chapter I had a problem on. Took me 20minutes to get by 1 part.

It's an achievement guide for a game that's on par with King Kong. In other words, it's pointless. You put forth minimal effort to play the game, you get 1000 gamerscore. Everyone on this site knows that. Besides, this is an internet message board. Threads go off topic. Get over it.

I find it funny that most of you had no trouble with this game at all. I am experiencing the most glitches in a game since Gears 2 online. I'm in cover and a T-600 kills me(I have full health) in one shot. The A.I. stays fixed in 1 position where I can't even blind-fire without dying. Pipe-Bombs don't even damage enemies. My Health NEVER regenerates. The list goes on. This is a terribly difficult game on Hard. I wouldn't go so far as to say harder then COD: WaW, but it is pretty damn close.

Shoot ahead of them instead of at them, they'll drive into the explosion.

Now if it seems they are invulnerable, reload the checkpoint you might be in a glitch.

I know you said you are in the process of writing up a walkthrough, but here's a tip for you all pulling your hair out at the end of chp3 with the 3 t6s.

When they bust through the wall and you are told to run upstairs, hug the outer wall (away from railing), you seem to take a bit less damage.

When you get to the area where the guy is making the pipebombs, take cover behind the broken table that overlooks the stairs and yard area. Don't bother with the L shaped file cabinet cover or behind the refrigerators.

Ignore the first T6 that comes up the stairs, he will come all the way to your side, but will be unable to shoot you behind the table. The second T6 will stop his patrol directly across from you. Grab one pipebomb (actually gives you two) and throw them at the T6. His chest will malfunction and all you need to do is finish him off with any gun, or grab another pipebomb stack.

When he dies, a door will open and another T6 will appear where the first one that you ignored is at. Get out of cover, but stay near the table, and just get a position (I had to autorun against the railing) to get a clean shot on the final 2 terminators. You can either grab another pipebomb or just lay into them with your guns. 99% of the time they will concentrate on your AI friends and won't attack you. If you do go out into the open to grab pipebombs, they will shoot at you. Once you kill both of them, make your way into the next area.

This trick almost just abuses the line of sight that the terminators have on you, and is absolutely doable on your first try with this strategy, given they dont mow you down as you run up the stairs.

Well since I have seen this advice no where else and I think it's valuable info...

On the very last mission during your very last objective (Escape Skynet before the Resistance drops their nukes) you can just run to the helicopter to end the mission and therefore the game. I did not know this I tried many times to eliminate the four Terminators on the upper levels and kept completely running out of ammo in both my weapons and ran out of grenades and pipe bombs so as you can guess it was very frustrating.

What I did was run to the boxes on your right ASAP or your friendly AI will take up the spots, therefore you cannot get in cover. Took out those two Terminators with RPGs, turned around and that railing is covered so you can get into cover there so you don't get lit up by the other two T-600s then I got out of cover and just booked it to the heli... 1000GS!

If people seriously want or need a walkthrough for this game.. go to gamefaqs.com. That site is dedicated for walkthroughs of all games.. this site is dedicated to achievements only. And from what I'm hearing from this game, and how easy it is.. a walkthrough shouldn't be needed.

You are right, the game isn't overly difficult, but it does have a few spots on the hard difficulty that may need a few attempts. The game is entirely scripted, and there's no smart AI to speak of, so the player will see enemy patterns quickly.

The only parts that may cause problems (and have already been addressed in different threads) are: Act 3 stairway when you first encounter 3 t600s, Act 5 protect the bus, and Act 7 destroying the AA emplacements.

Yea the loading times are absolutely horrible, along with the game itself. Had no idea they could make such a horrible game these days and get away with it. Feel sorry for the people that actually bought this game for retail price instead of renting it. Either way, the only problems you should encounter is in Chapter 3 I believe it is, where you have to go upstairs and take care of 2 or 3 T6's, those things are a damn pain. And Chapter 7 where you are in the big machine and have to take out the AA guns and HKs, besides that, this game is a breeze.:uzi::eek:

sup dethklok... seems like a bit overkill on the guide seeing as it was litterally the easiest game ive ever played... however the only level i died (more than once) was the 5th one. this level requires you to kill some of those spider things and terminator things w/ a stationary rocket launcher and also kill those motorcyclists. I have a quick tip for each part.
1st, when facing the enemies while stationary, kill the 1st wave of enemies then (3 spiders) the second wave is trickier. 2 spiders come down the stairs to the right, w/ almost immediatly after 2 terminators straight ahead. *try* to kill the spiders right away, (dont shoot more than a rocket at them) if you dont thats fine, focus on the terminators chests as they will kill you way faster than the spiders.
2nd tip, durring the chase when your being followed by motorcyclists and eventually that big air ship/ flying enemies. Focus strictly on the motorcycles. The dudes in the sky wont kill you.. not even close, but if the motorcycles get to close and you or your partner are aiming up insted of at the bikes, you'll die quick. keep blasting straight behind you and you'll be fine
