    Wow. Two storylines inch toward the final battle and is riveting on every page. If you ever enjoyed a Terminator movie, you'll want to get this. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    So yeah, I just sort of gave away two pages in a 22-page comic. Theres so much more interesting stuff going on. Multiple narratives spanning three time periods, a serial killer, a time door, amusing paradox ironies, mini Terminators this book has all those things and more. Read Full Review

    Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle #2 is a good issue but feels like more developments could have taken place instead of elaborating on what occurred in the first issue. It was good to see Dr. Kogan starting on the research facility and what occurred after she was first contacted, and this aspect of Skynet's plans is still interesting. The hunt for Thomas Parnell moves forward and with his characterization I'm starting to imagine why he would be useful to the terminators even if it's not completely clear yet. This is still a must read series for me and I'm hoping next issue moves the story along more. Read Full Review

    Unless some colossal letdown occurs, I believe that Terminator Salvation: The Last Battle is definitely a winner here in the infancy of the story. We are two issues in and the action is moving at a good pace with 10 whole issues to go. A solid foundation has been built and the sky is the limit to how good this arc can be. They have my interest. Let the battle begin. Read Full Review

    Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle #2 is successful as it leaves me hoping for some time displacement, in order to make the days between releasesshorter. Recommended. Read Full Review

    If you are fan of the movies up to this point and would like some resolution from where Salvation left off I suggest picking this series up and giving it a try. It may not be a fresh idea in the Terminator universe but it is a decent continuation of the story. The story is engaging and the artwork fits quite well with it. All in all interesting read and I for one am interested in whats going to go down in issue #3. Read Full Review

    Only sort of. This isn't very engaging or memorable story wise and the writing isn't terrific. I feel like this book could get a (much needed) surge of emotion that would make it much better and would really turn the series around. However, for now, this series can be skipped. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jan 1, 2014

    I think the most disappointing thing about Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle is that every piece of it feels like it was taken from some more interesting Terminator series. There really isn't anything new on display in Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle; the stuff in the present feels like a rejected Sarah Connor Chronicles arc, the stuff in the future is just Terminator Salvation on continuous repeat and, the serial killer stuff could (maybe) get interesting sometime, but we really aren't there yet. At the same time, it takes your engagement and sympathy for characters like John Connor as given, and uses it as an excuse to forgo giving him character development or likable traits. Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle was already out to a rocky start, but this issue really plunged it straight into the bad category" it's boring, it's tired, and I don't recommend it.
