Terminator 2: Judgment Day, renamed T2: The Arcade Game for the home conversions, is a coin-op created by Midway and later ported to several home computers and consoles. The Amiga and Genesis/Mega Driver versions were curated by Probe and released in 1993.
This shooter, made of seven different levels, belongs to the rail-shooter genre, games where you just move your crosshair to shoot approaching enemies. Amiga users will recognize the similarities with another popular shooter called Operation Wolf, but in this case, you have all the movie elements that make the experience more rewarding.
In terms of coin-op conversion, the work made by Probe is excellent. Graphics and sounds are very similar to the arcade version, and gameplay is perfectly replicated. Even too much, honestly, because the difficulty level could have been reduced to make players' lives easier. Whether you like rail shooters or not, this is a game that every Terminator fan should try. You can't miss Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice, the face of an angry Robert Patrick (the terrible T-1000), and many other references to the film. Hasta la vista, baby!
