The Terminator

PlayStation 3, PSP
Mild Blood, Violence

This is a top-down shooter in which players control a hero who wanders a tattered futuristic landscape and performs various missions—mainly destroying robots called Terminators. Players use pistols, machine guns, and rifles to destroy Terminator robots and other mechanical foes. The robots and the stationed turrets fire blue lasers at players, resulting in a brief grunt (i.e., a "huff" sound) and a tiny splash of pixalated blood; Terminators explode into a small fiery burst after a couple of shots. Though gunfire sound effects are frequent, the overhead perspective and fantasy-based setting tend to make the action less immersive than in traditional shooters; gameplay is closer to an arcade-style action game than a fast-paced "run-and-gun."
