Ever since Bethesda's MS-DOS effort way back in 1990, Terminator is a franchise that has been revisited time and again by various developers across almost every gaming generation. With its exciting, time-jumping storyline, futuristic weaponry and vehicles, explosive action, and suspenseful sci-fi overtones, the Terminator universe seems custom made for great video game releases.
Despite this, Terminator is a franchise that has often struggled with quality. While theworld and its characters – such as Sarah and John Connor, as well as big Arnie himself – have made repeated appearances in gaming over the past few decades, developers have often struggled to truly nail the franchise's full potential – though they have come exceptionally close on a number of occasions.
This time, it's the turn of Polish studio Teyon to take a crack at the iconic franchise with their new first-person shooter/RPG Terminator: Resistance. Easily the studio's biggest release to date (their last major title was Rambo - The Video Game), I took to the front line of the Future War for a few hours, to see whether Teyon's title is looking to be a T-1000, or just a rubber-skinned remnant of the 600 series.
