Alternate Versions

The DVD release of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines is a slightly edited version of the film as originally shown in theaters. Trimmed from the movie is a quick quip from a fire fighter in which one fireman ribs another that he must not be lifting enough weights, or words to that effect, after the first man failed to lift the T-850, to which the fire fighter in question gives an exasperated look. The second moment happened at the end of John's nightmare in which he sees a battalion of T-850s amble over a hill of rubble only to be finally spotted by one of the metal monsters and stared down dead-on. That moment of the T-850 , staring at John went on for approximately another two or three seconds as shown in cinemas. Lastly, Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-850 no longer spins the carousel of sunglasses at the convenience store as he did in the original theatrical presentation; instead the film makes a cut as soon as he spies and approaches the case.

Weird game, but alright
17 November 2003 | by Chances911See all my reviews

This game can be fun at points I mean being Arnold, blowing up a lot of stuff, shooting down those planes that were in the movie, actually challenges you it's a difficult game, and some other things. These are the things that I don't really like about the game it gets frustrating when you die and you have to start the whole level over again, sometimes the objectives aren't that clear of what they want you to do, and I wish it was alittle longer. Overall ** and a half **** only because of not knowing all of what to do everything else is pretty good.
