Return to the apocalyptic world that is The Terminator(TM). Terminator fans
have bombarded us with all sorts of requests and suggestions for another
sequel (Editorial comment: no, not *another* one--a *better* one) with all
new features, and we had no choice but to comply! SkyNET delivers all new
single player missions and the most explosive multi-player combat ever to
grace a screen. Now take on the cyborg enemies in SVGA graphics with all
new options and weapons. Lob pipe bombs over walls to bombard your enemies,
or use the motion tracker and play a deadly game of cat and mouse.

you can choose the character you wish to play. Other features:
