Terminator Salvation by all accounts is not only a disappointing film but also a disappointing game, so for the poor innocent gamers or Terminator fans who decided to pick up a copy in the hopes of sticking it to Skynet, prepare for more bad news…
The PC version doesn’t work. Simple as that. While the PS3 and 360 versions are gracious enough to not give up the ghost during play, the PC version has presented gamers with install errors since launch. And the problem is so bad that all PC copies have been recalled from retail outlets in North America. Hasta la vista, baby.
A sheepish post on the game’s official forum states, “Unfortunately a defect occurred during replication of the PC version of Terminator Salvation, which does not allow end users to install the game. The Xbox 360 and PS3 are not affected and function properly. We have recalled all PC copies of Terminator Salvation from retail in North America and are currently in the process of replicating new copies. The new copies will be on store shelves in a few days. A replacement plan for all end users that purchased the defective units is currently being set up. Details to get a replacement copy will be announced shortly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused the end users that purchased the defective copy.”
Hopefully there’ll be some good news for PC gamers shortly so that they can actually play the game they paid money for but we’re not holding out much hope on the wait actually being worth it.
