The arcade port rules

Author: The_Light_Triton ( from In a Chair in my room

When a game is made, it's sometimes best to stay where it came from. what i mean to say is, pac-man should've stayed in the arcade, Primal rage should've stayed in the arcade, and the star wars game should have too.

well, there's not much to comment on. it's just a point and shoot game. point your gun, and shoot the metal things. don't shoot your allies...move on.

this game is more fun in the arcade, because you can dual-wield the guns with-out trouble, although i admit it's really hard to aim with dual guns. but like they say, practice makes perfect.

bottom line, this game is an excellent movie to game port. however, try to stay away from the 4th generation console ports.

T2: The arcade game

I never played "Terminator 2: The Arcade Game" in the arcades hardcore; I think I played it once while I was on vacation at Virginia Beach, but that was over 10 years ago. I've since had the game on both Sega Genesis and Sega Game Gear. As the title would give away, it's a spin-off of the hugely successful movie "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" (1991). Basically in this game, it's a side-scrolling point-and-shoot at Skynet's endless armies of mechanized killing machines in the wastelands of the post-apocalyptic future, and be careful to not accidentally shoot your human allies. And that's pretty much it.

The game is swift and action-packed, and there's a lot to shoot at, so don't worry about becoming bored during game-play. Only problem is, the battles can be a little too intense and so at certain points you're overwhelmed with so many things to blast at on the screen. With that said, I've never completed the game because it's always "game over" by the second to last stage.

But anyway, "Terminator 2: The Arcade Game" is a sufficient shooter - no more, no less.

Terminator 2: The Arcade Game is a fantastic and enjoyable game, the game has action, good music and great graphics. The game play is easy to pick up just shoot the enemies on the screen and reach the end of the level. The game has a multi-player so two can play this awesome game, the game follows the film Terminator 2: Judgement Day except their's a few more levels in the Future. You can get this game on the retro consoles such as the MegaDrive (Genesis), SNES, Gameboy and MS-DOS.

Terminator 2: The Arcade Game is a classic arcade shooter that doesn't disappoint with the action, this game is one to be played. 10/10
