Terminator 2: Judgement Day video:
There are a mere four different tracks in the game: the title screen, the intro sequence, the side-scrolling level music and the driving level music. At first glance this would make it seem that no effort has been gone into the music, but the in-game tunes are catchy and you enjoy them well.
The game's visuals are amazing, especially on the side-scrolling levels. Most of the levels that are taken from the movie have been largely expanded to extend gameplay. Arnie definitely looks like Arnie, and the T-1000 is a beautiful digital rendition of Robert Patrick. The Connors don their appropriate garb for their stints in the movie (even though I remember Sarah wearing black for the Cyberdyne sequence....), and you can immediately tell where each enemy's movie counterpart came from. Places such as the mall, the mental hospital, among others, are all huge. The graphics go for more realistic colours rather than making it bright and jippy as a general rule, all of which adds to the game.
T2: Judgment Day for the Genesis is a simple run-and-gun fest, with lots of muscle and lots of artillery, but very little of anything new to pull it off. The Terminator's movements are unimaginative —just a lot of point and shoot, or kneel, point and shoot. There is some strategy: In each level, you must accomplish mission objectives. These can take a little figuring out, but shouldn't drain the T-800's resources (locating John Connor is as simple as looking him up in the phone book).
- At the start of each mission, you receive your objectives. Press the Start Button for additional objectives.
- Pick up the second shotgun for additional firepower. Trade between the handgun and the shotgun.
- You'll need more bullets to stay In the game. Hmmm...policemen usually carry lots ot ammo.
