I remember playing this with a fist full of quarters with my friend Tim back at the Lincoln Heights Pizza place. We played all the way to the end but never beat it. It consists of a fighting Skynet in the future, going up against the Exo(endo?)skeletons and having stuff thrown at you from and you have too shoot back. As it moves along you have to ward off HK (Hunter Killers) from a beat up truck as it races towards Skynet and then you have to fight Skynet itself. Though after seeing what SKynet was supposed to look like on the Ultimate T2 disk, I am underwhelmed by its appearance. After that it takes you to the modern day to rescue John Conner. Some similarities there, but you have to go to Cyberdyne and stop the T1000 in the helicopter. The part at the very end is where the movie itself ends. I believe the trick was to defeat the T1000 the same way it was beat in the movie, but I didn't grasp that concept when we were plowing through it. Just don't let the T1000 get John. ALl in all, an arcade classic to me. A word to the wise:'Keep away from the Sega Genesis version. THe gun doesn't work and it's terrible.' If I had the money I might buy one of these T2 games for myself.
