Terminator game promises salvation for movie tie-ins.
Despite many fans' wariness over whether Charlie's Angels director McG can pull off the upcoming fourth Terminator film, Halcyon Games has boldly moved forward with a video game tie-in. However, rather than merely adapting the film's screenplay, the upcoming Terminator: Salvation video game further explores the Terminator universe and the aftermath of Judgement Day. So that must make it good, right? Enter the Matrix and various other attempts at "original" extensions of movie franchises beg to differ.Set two years before the events in the Terminator: Salvation film, the video game places you in control of John Connor as he leads squads against the onslaught of the robotic horde. Coming to Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3, the game has reportedly been in development since late 2007, before the actual film began shooting. The game will be released in conjunction with the movie, on 19 May.
