The Good: Sharper graphics, and audio, FMV movie sequences
The Bad: Movie quality is so low that it hurts your eyes, same old action we’ve seen before, extremely hard
I never really liked Sega CD because it was more like an HD upgrade to the original Genesis versions. The Terminator is no exception. While the game has movie sequences (which have disgustingly horrific quality), and sharper graphics and sound it doesn’t make the game any more special.
The game is just like any other side scrolling 2D action game but with a movie license. Don’t get me wrong this game does a good job at that but we’ve seen it all before. I, in particular, didn’t care for the game and didn’t even finish the first level before putting it down. If you’re craving some 2D action games then The Terminator is for you.
