8.3.1 The Terminator (Terminator Console Games)

Reviewed by Trevor Williams <brock@alaska.net>:
The Terminator is a shoot-'em-up platform game for NES, Super Nintendo,
Sega Game Gear, Sega Master System, and Sega Megadrive (Genesis).

The game follows the movie closely, but adds original levels. (The first
level, for instance, has Kyle Reese infiltrating the Terminators' time
machine base). The graphics are horrible, even on Super Nintendo.
Sometimes flicker occurs, slowing the game. The Nintendo graphics resemble
that of a Commodore 64, while the SNES graphics look like that of a subpar
Nintendo game. The sound is okay, but on the Sega Master System, it is
atrocious.

This game is very hard. Most of the time, you have to attack the
Terminator and then run for it. Then attack and run. Attack and run.
Very repetitive. And you have a very limited supply of health. At least
on the Game Gear version, one hit means you're dead. The game is
frustrating. With drab graphics and the repetitiousness, it can become a
bore quickly.

Graphics: 61% Sound: 72%
Gameplay: 45% Longevity: 10%
Overall: 50% (I am being nice)
For most console systems.
