We've all gotten accustomed to Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo having video game launches to coincide with blockbuster movie releases. Now we have Apple joining the party.

Just released in time for this summer's blockbuster "Terminator: Salvation" is the iPhone app of the same name. Join the resistance and play as John Conner and Marcus Wright in the post-apocalyptic battle for survival. With Kyle Reese and other freedom fighters, you take on Skynet in this 3D third-person shooter. With six weapon types at your disposal, like the shotgun, surge cannon, and grenade launcher, players can combat hordes and possibly make it out alive. Battle 11 different authentic enemies dispensed by Skynet, plus some exclusive models just for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Terminator Salvation can be played in multiple languages such as English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. It is only compatible with the iPhone/iPod Touch with the 2.2.1 software. The download is available now on the Apps Store for $9.99.
