I've given this game several tries and it is just... okay. The cannon is kinda cool but would be more fun with more of a variety of targets to shoot for. The multiballs are pretty good. Other than that, it is just another pin.

UPDATE - Spent some quality time on this machine and had a higher quality experience. Looking forward to play it more.

This pin has a lot to offer and some of the features are very cool. I love the canon and the jackpot shots. The sound and sayings work for me. I have payback time set long and boy does it get you going. This was the first pin where I used video mode knocking off terminators. It's pretty easy to figure out but there a number of things to keep you interested and to score.

It's not my favorite SR pin, but it's still an decent game. Didn't last long with me, however.

nice early williams game...like the canon shot.. One thing is it is one of the only games that makes noise when its not in play so that can be annoying if you leave your games on when not played. real straight forward game and rules so its a nice for all caliber of players.. reaasonable priced too.. so its a nice game to add to a collection

This a good machine that would compliment most collections. The backglass and playfield have great artwork that benefit from a really good theme. The playfield is laid out well and offers lots of interesting shots. The game can be brutal and ball times can be very short, which gives this game a really high "just one more game" factor. It features smooth ramps and great flow.

On the negative side, the scoring is a bit unbalanced and the rule set may be a bit shallow when compared to later games. However, this machine is tons of fun and is amazing to look at. Overall, this is solid playing machine that benefits from a great theme, good flow, and good artwork.

I've owned this game for a few weeks now. It's not as deep as my IJ or my Corvette, but it is loads of fun to play! Great machine for playing a quick game.

Fun game at first but after a few games it starts to get a bit repetitive. For the most part it's just left ramp...right ramp...left ramp....right ramp till payback time. Rinse repeat.

I am a bit biased due to owning an I'll Be Back In Black edition.

I hope that TERMINATOR 2 gets the v2.0 treatment.

I own a T2 and it’s a fun, fast game, with a ton of replay value. I love games with long, fluid shots and T2 delivers. The cannon is always fun to shoot. The game has great sounds and a really solid light show. The fact that the game has Arnold's real voice is a big plus. This is a must have game for any collection.

Always expected this machine to be better, hence why not in the collection anymore !!!

This is an undervalued pin in my opinion. Can still pick it up for 2k all day long. Cannon, video mode, pistol plunger. Great addition to any game room and you can not go wrong with the theme. Not the most exciting pin to play, but it is still fun enough to press start twice in a row. The theme is definitely its strongest asset. A bit repetitive but great for beginners and fun for everyone.

Played this pin a lot during my term of office in the army (1991). Enjoyed it quit well then, but now it is just an average pin. It is fun, but not for long.

Awesome, will now look to add this to my collection. Love the cannon.

Great game, excellent flow, simple (system 11 like) rules and yet... a lot of fun to play. It really does a good job of using the theme and I think T2 is a borderline classic. I think everyone needs to own a T2 at some point. Just a good all round game that you may get tired of eventually, but you'll also miss once it goes.

Love this Game, Classic SciFi theme from one of the best movies released in the 90s,
Arnies voice overs blend well into the game, classic Steve Ritchie speed and Flow, simple but unforgiving at the same time.
Wont be leaving my collection..

I feel the hugely open playing field is one giant ball drain at times. Overall not a bad machine, however, I will gravitate to anything else in an arcade before playing this one.

Good entry level pin, If you get hooked on pins this will eventually leave your collection.Although affordability make this a keeper for those on a budget.
