TRIVIA
Terminator 2 was released in November 1991.

Some enemies in Terminator 2 - Judgment Day (especially those from the Skynet Complex stage) were meant to be in the original Terminator 2 movie, unfortunately they were scrapped from the film because of budget issues.

Some of the musics from this game was recycled for it's pinball counterpart.

Michael Jackson used to own this game. It was sold at the official Michael Jackson Auction on Apr. 24th, 2009.

TIPS AND TRICKS
Bonus Trick on Stage 1 : On Stage 1, exoskeletons will sometimes pop up in the foreground. When this occurs, shoot the skull until a CPU appears. Shoot the CPU quickly and you can receive a bonus (points, shield, more energy, plasma cannon, etc.)!

As soon as John gets in the truck, start shooting the tires. If you
do this you'll make it to Skynet on your first try.
