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.

It's out already in England. Everyone there who has played it is saying that it obviously wasn't done yet and they shipped it anyway. There are countless bugs in it and the AI and single player are a joke. Hit detection doesn't work half of the time and you can empty your whole ammo supply into someone without killing them. They also need better cheat protection.

It's too bad because this could have been a very fun game. It sounds like Atari has pretty much thrown all integrity straight out the window and are shipping defective unfinished products. I won't be buying any titles from them in the future. I won't even get started on their moronic decision to rename Driver 3 as driv3r. I was looking forward to that as well but not anymore.

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.

it's worse than DX:IW in any case...

For the n00bs that dont know. The demo was an unofficial release as it still had technical issues. If they cleared it up then the game can have good potential.

Hmm.. I'll hold off on judgment till I can probably play it though I heard the demo wasn't that hot. Regardless it grabs my interest since it's Terminator but also because of the multiplayer where you can play as a Terminator machine which is intriguing.

Maybe I can try the demo tonight.
