Ships Ahoy - T3: War of the Machines

Atari Ships "Terminator 3: War of the Machines" (thanks Frans) is the press release announcing that Judgment Day is nigh, and that this Terminator first-person shooter is now appearing in stores, presumably naked and looking for sunglasses. Here's a bit:
Atari shipped "Terminator®3: War of the Machines(TM)" today to retail stores for the personal computer, a single-player and online multiplayer first-person shooter set in the ravaged battlefields of the Tech Com-versus-SkyNet conflict. Developed by Hungary-based Clever's Games, "Terminator 3: War of the Machines" allows up to 32 players to face off online as either technologically-advanced SkyNet Terminators or battle-hardened Tech Com Special Forces in an epic multi-player struggle for supremacy.

To be disappointed, if you're a Terminator fan anyways.

There's no single-player game here, it's the same 12 maps used in multi-play (bots vs you + bots), you can do the same thing in the lan setup option only there you have a few extra controls.

Only 12 maps, 3 game modes Termination = BF1942 capture and hold,Team deathmatch, Mission = same as Termination except one team defends other team captures. Some of the maps are worthless as they're not big enough for 4 people let alone 32.

All the content is T3 based, some maps force you to only choose between a T1 or a FK for Terminators.

If you're top dog on the human side you can respawn as Arnold, including poorly implemented voice-overs and everything.

Some keys are hard coded and you can't re-bind them.

The player movement is too slow, Terminators don't have a jump option (I know they did this to make it look cool or something but you can get stuck on the maps)

Overall, if it were a free mod for Half life I'd say good job for a first try, not at all worth $39.99.
