Terminator 2: The Judgement Day is an action classic. Everybody remembers the plot, the lines, the special effects and almost everything about this film. It was a huge success worldwide and video games were just a matter of time. Terminator 2: Judgement Day the game, was released in 1991 by Ocean.
You play as the good old T-800 cyborg and your mission is to save John Connor from the new terminator: the deadly T-1000. You go through different levels fighting, shooting, driving and solving puzzles. The fighting and shooting levels are repetitive and boring. You face the T-1000 on some of the movie locations such as the hospital, and you'll have to defeat him or get him out of the screen in order to pass the level. Between some levels you'll find a puzzle, where you need to fix T-800's arm or face with time against you. If you do it well, your health bar will be restored.
My favorite levels are the ones with bird perspective, where you are in the middle of a chase from the movie (such as the T-1000 in a truck chasing T-800 and John Connor). In those levels you must avoid lots of obstacles and watch for your and your partner's health bar.
Something I didn't like about this game is the fact that you can't save. It's very frustrating because you just have one life and there aren't any continues either! Only thing you can do after the game is over, is to put your initials in the high score board. However, I don't think even you want to know your high score, you just want a frigging continue!
Graphics are nice, and you get to see small cutscenes in between the levels. As for the music, is nearly nonexistent. I just heard some in the intro and the high scores board. Sound effects are average and there's not much to listen to.
All in all, Terminator 2: The Judgement Day is one of those games you play once and you have a good time, and then you forgot about it forever! I'd give a mark of 3 because of the chase scenes and the puzzles. Anyway, if you're a big fan of the movie you'll enjoy it so much more.
