Terminator 2: Judgment Day or T2 is a light gun shooter based on the film of the same name. The game was developed in tandem with the movie, so several actors from the film reprise their roles for the game and are featured as part of the game's photorealistic digitized graphics. The game's plot largely follows that of the film, casting up to two players as the T-800 "terminator" cyborg from the film, sent back in time to protect John Connor from assassination by the T-1000 terminator. The story takes us, just like in the movie, to an American town, in which the goal of the game is to protect the leader of the Resistance, little John Connor and his mother Sarah from a machine from the future T-1000 that wants to kill them both. The game features several beatdowns between both T-1000 Terminators and the older T-800 type, and 2 action levels, which are basically top-down motorcycle chases. The game also contains two logical interludes, in this case they are jigsaw puzzles, in one of which we have to fix the Terminator's eye and in the other hand. Individual parts and levels are linked by examples from the film. The player's primary weapon is a machine gun, which fires automatically as long as the trigger is pulled. Pressing a button on the side fires a secondary weapon (missiles in 2029, shotgun shells in the 1990s). Gun ammunition is unlimited; however, an on-screen power gauge slowly decreases with extended firing, causing the rate of fire to slow down. The gauge slowly refills when the gun trigger is released. Health/weapon power-ups and ammunition supplies for the secondary weapon are available throughout the game.
