GoodWill Game Review -Terminator 2: Judgement Day
When I first started to review the game “Terminator 2: The Video Game” for the Sega Genesis. I thought the game was total crap that is not completely wrong. I got this game for .99 cents at the goodwill across town .I was very excited to this review. It is a game that I have never played and on one of my favorite systems of all time. It did not have the box, so thought it would be like the arcade game. If you don’t remember the arcade game, it was like a light gun game but the guns were mounted to the cabinet. There are found memories at the local arcade playing Neo-Geo and Terminator 2.
The game play is not the greatest. When I started playing the game, it was totally crap and thought I would never play it again after doing this review. I thought it was like a beatem up, maybe that is because I have been playing Castle Crashers every time I turn on my Xbox. You start off on a porch of the bar like in the movie and there are biker dudes coming after you. They will kick your ass. There is no point to fight them. It has that most evil thing that a beatem up can in it, when I am on top of a bad guy, I should be able to punch them. In this game, you have to be in front of a few inches to punch them. I got destroyed and turned of the game and went to right my review on the craptastic game. I was looking for game footage and found a video on youtube of a guy defending the game. I started to watch it and he pointed out what to do. I was playing the game wrong. You have to go in the bar and find a gun. It says it on the screen but there is no way to tell if you can go into the bar. After getting past the first level of the game, I realized the game had great potential. The creators of the game were really thinking ahead of the time. I wish the game was not set up into levels it would have been a lot cinematic. You are actually going to the places in the movie, you go to John Connor’s house and the mall looking for John Connor at the arcade and you meet up with the T-1000. There are puzzle solving elements in the game. At John Connor’s house, you have shot the alarm so the cops do not come in the house and kill you. Along the same lines, the mall guards will not attack you if you do not use gun if front of them. I believe this is very forward thinking. You also have to drive to the locations to meet your objectives. The drive controls are terrible. Unlike most movie licensed games, this follows the story of the movie. This is very good of a fan of the movie. This was my first rated “R” movie I saw as a child.
The graphics and sound are not great but they seem to work for the game. For the graphics, Arnold does not look like Arnold. He looks like a Frankenstein in a leather jacket. The other characters in the game are bland. John Connor looks like a little kid not a preteen. It looks like he should be carrying a teddy bear with him. The T-1000 looks pretty cool in the game. He appears from anywhere out of the ground in his liquid form and when you shoot him, the liquid metal splatters. That was very satisfying being a fan of the movie.
The final review of the game is 3 out of 5 golf hats. I really like the potential of the game. If you can get passed the lousy controls it is a cool game, with the puzzle solving and the story coming so close to the movie, if you area fan of the Terminator movie or just a fan of the Genesis, it is good game to add to the collection if it is cheap enough.
Warning Alot of Cursing in the video
