Writing some kind of reviews is really nonsense – and this is just one of them. The original Terminator Resistance was a pleasantly modest yet honest budget excursion into the post-apocalyptic world of the first film. I didn’t expect anything other than an extra dose of the same from the story expansion. And that’s exactly what I got. So what can I add so that this isn’t just a recap of the original game’s review?

Kyle Reese and his destiny
You will need the full version of the original game to play this expansion, however, although it takes place in the middle of the story campaign, you can launch it directly from the main menu. As the hero of the original game, Jacob Rivers, you are selected for a special mission with a small squad led by Kyle Reese. What at first seems like a relatively routine inspection of the suddenly silent resistance base, gradually turns out to be something much more important and dangerous – Kyle received special secret instructions for this mission directly from John Connor, but he was never explained in detail what exactly. it is the real purpose of this mission that hides. The film expert’s answer quickly comes to mind, but in fact, everything is not so simple.
The new mission will offer about five hours of that breathtaking crawl through the ruins of human civilization, infested with deadly machines of all sizes, led by several Terminator models – from T600 to T800. You will also be able to level up and unlock abilities in your skill tree, however, to my great disappointment, the “purple” plasma weapon will not be available. Undoubtedly, the biggest impression of the entire expansion is the moment you stand in front of that “Line of Annihilation” or “Border of Destiny”, which is a giant wall of fire and explosion that rushes in front of a grouped machine army. And you have to go right through this crazy wall. It is also convenient to perform some additional missions.
The greatest experience is the moment when you stand before this Boundary of Destiny.
But as this suicide mission progresses into the second half, you’ll find that on the other side of the war line, Skynet hides even more terrifying things than Fate’s Edge itself. I must say that the idea and the handling of these things really impressed me, and at the same time they fit perfectly into the mythology of the original film. As a pleasant icing on the cake, several completely iconic moments from the movie will gradually be added to the game, skillfully built directly into the gameplay. The result is a solid fan service similar to the full version of the original game. If you improve your absurdly strong sniper rifle with the proper upgrades, it will be a lot of fun in terms of action. Of course, explosives are also a good alternative.
play as terminator
While I played the original game on PC, I played this expansion on PS5 for comparison. This was my first exposure to the Infiltrator add-on mode, a roughly hour-long roegulike generated campaign in which you take on the role of a Terminator trying to find and kill a key commander of the human army among the ruins. This mode was added to the PC version a few months after the release of the DLC, and we could see it on consoles as part of the “Extended” version. One of the best things about this add-on is the fidelity with which the creators worked out how the Terminator sees the world around him – in red and with all sorts of calculations flowing through the image.
At the same time, it was fun to be on the other side and march against these funny fragile human beings like an almost unstoppable killer tank. Of course, you can’t expect any kind of storytelling from this mode, but as an hour of fun that you can then increase the difficulty and overcome your own score, the mode works very well in that regard. Overall, I enjoyed returning to the world of Terminator Resistance, although it certainly didn’t leave me with the pleasant surprises and discoveries that I had when I first played the original game.
