The final mission is a curious beast. Apparently Skynet is actually in space? Eh, logic has never been strong in this series. I have to listen to the briefing more than once over having to actually finish this mission. Otherwise its just a very long slog. A very, very, very long slog. Its ruining what was a very enjoyable game for me. Shoot some robots then repair. Shoot some robots then repair. Make it out of a place you've been pinned down in for twenty minutes. A completely necessary task, because if you don't hunker down and do that, you're going to die.
|Note the enemies inside the wall
|You'd think there would be less terminators up here
Thus begins a really long trek. This really is an endurance mission. And with the sound broken its filled with cacophony over soft, midi music. Only in the central area, the side areas have no sound.
|The usual grind of waiting for something to pass by the door
|Destroying something beyond a wall
Its only now that my shot speed has decreased, which isn't horrible at
this point, since I'm almost done. Slowly but surely. This consists
entirely of me coming out from cover, attacking the turret, retreating
after some damage, repairing. And sometimes dealing with enemies that
pop up. Those enemies sometimes appear in areas I can't reach, so I have
to throw grenades in there. I suspect this has something to do with the
engine not working well in-doors, but that's it. Repeat 2-4 times for
each turret, all the while noise is coming from my speakers.
|That shuttle looks weird now that I see it in a non-panicked situation
|"New hunter"? On a cosmic time scale, robot has been around even shorter than us
|The show don't tell approach isn't working
