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.

Don't know what it is about this game but I find it boring.

Can't beat a bit of Arnie! Would like to get hold of one of these one day.

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.

My second pin and a good one. I love the theme and it's a fun, fast game with good flow. Not a keeper for me in my really small collection but I'd like to have it back some day.

Theme, artwork and Arnold's callouts really carries the game. When set up properly it can be a typical Steve Ritchie fast game. Cannon shot and Super Jackpot is great.

Fun game but it gets repetitive after a while.

A fun game, but become essentially a game of rinse and repeat, with the primary goal of starting the one multiball as much as possible. Would prefer some more variety.

This is the first machine that I owned and have had it for two years. Thought about selling it when I bought Dredd and STTNG because it was not as flash. Poor T2 sat there for about 3 month patiently for me to return and I did and now I love the big fellow again. It is a classic that I will keep for a long time. It is pure pinball. Fast and dumb. Classic Steve Ritchie machine. You can pick them up for under 3K in Australia.

Really simple game to step up to as a beginner. Extremely satisfying left and right alternating ramp shot as you move towards "payback"

Its easy to love a pin with Arnie sound bites

A fun game I have great memories of playing back in the day. Now that I've rediscovered pinball, I still find this machine a ton of fun. It's seemingly straight forward yet still allows a nice variety of scoring approaches with good risk-reward choices to be made.

I can't believe T2 isn't ranked higher, I think it's a great game. It's not the deepest but it is still a lot of fun, great flow and the cannon and multiball mode are awesome. T2 makes a great theme with real voice by Arnold, too bad they didn't include the original theme song.

A Steve Ritchie classic!!! How can one give the first game designed with a DMD a bad rating. T2 is a true breakthrough in pinball. A must have for a collection!!!!
