Terminator Genisys: Future War

An Introduction to Terminator Genisys: Future War

Genisys has fallen and Skynet is offline yet the future war is still destined to happen as the conflict between man and machine rages ever on. In a unique twist players can adopt the role of the new human Resistance commander as iconic John Conner is missing in action or as the cybernetic machines unwaveringly set on terminating the entire human race.

Terminator Genisys: Future War : Gameplay

In a SimCity style build format similar to Transformers: Earth Wars players must build various item producing structures to power their base as they amass troops and continually complete research to aid in raiding missions. Each action is performed through single taps to select and upgrade or select and send.  Unlike other alliance based PvP games like CoC, battles are self-automated as are upgrades so players can relax in a stress free environment when enjoying the game.

Tips ‘n’ Tricks for Terminator Genisys: Future War

Free Boosts!

Due to the Build nature of Genisys there is a lot of wait time within the game. Players can however speed up completion for the last stages of completion.  Therefore it is important to be aware of build times and be sure to check back in just before they finish to take advantage of the free boosts.  Granted it’s only five minutes but when added up it helps speed things along.

Boosts can also be bought or won and are available in short five, ten minutes reductions or much longer lengths. Tempting as they are to use them, as players increase their levels, build times get longer and longer and as such, it is best to squirrel away boosts until really needed.

Genisys Cases

Genisys cases pop up in incrementally longer times and offer a range of items such as ammo, fuel and materials etc. As small as the rewards are they are constant and should be taken advantage of diligently.  Likewise Loyalty rewards can be collected on a regular basis and are higher in value yet longer in waiting.  Simply said, to make the most of Terminator Genisys: Future War small, short and repeated log-ins and sessions of gameplay is the best way to efficiently progress through the game.

Stay Busy!

Starting out players can only upgrade one building at a time, train one type of troop at a time and research one item at a time. It is therefore imperative to always be busy upgrading and researching as much as possible at a constant rate.  Completing the missions, objections and quests should also be given prime focus as this they offer constant and lucrative rewards as well as helpful hints as to what should be upgraded next to keep a balanced base.

Yet as is the norm with many other build / strategy based war games due to the PvP matching algorithms in battles it is always, always best to max out as much as possible being levelling up in tiers (i.e. the Command Centre and Headquarters)

Skill Points

Skill points are very rare to come by and as such should be used carefully! Starting out, they are best used for speeding up construction and research rather than production upgrades as this will allow faster progression of levelling up and stronger stats to allow for more successful raiding missions where loot needed can easily be won.  Just to reiterate, keep researching constantly and use skill points as soon as they are available!

World Map

The world map and subsequent other dimensions are where the supposed and advertised action takes place. Unfortunately however, since players have absolutely no control over battles apart from selecting how many troops to send into battle.  That said, the best tip when on the world map would be to focus raids on desired resources needed for research or upgrades or the ever valuable TP.  Apart from that, simply start with raids which are closest to your base to minimize wait times and allow for more raids over a set given amount of time.  Joining an alliance is also crucial to enjoying the World Map as team battles are definitely more enjoyable than solo excursions.

Personal Impressions // Review of Terminator Genisys: Future War

With over 30 years of canon history and almost limitless fanboy fiction to build upon, it is hard to not feel that with such boundless potential, Terminator Genisys: Future War is very, very lacking and utterly disappoints! With such rich and unique content to draw upon, the storyline within the game is absolutely non-existent!
What could have been full of an addictive narrative and anchor for maintaining repeat gameplay, players are instead left with an empty shell that is nothing more than a basic click and wait build game.

Had the option to actually view battles or even more so actually direct and control fights then Genisys: Future War could actually be considered a proper strategy based game full of Meta based tactics which allow for thought provoking gameplay.

That said, for those players who have endless patience and enjoy a slow build game as a way to pass the time, then this could be a suitable download for them. Yet in essence, the graphics, sounds effects and addictiveness of gameplay whilst not being horrible, are certainly not exceptional in any sense and as such Terminator Genisys: Future War scores a very generous one star out of five.
