Terminator 2: Judgment Day is based on the movie of the same name. The player takes the role of the T-800 Terminator and has to protect John Connor from being terminated by the T-1000 Terminator.

The game is set over five levels with the following goals:

  • Level 2: An isometric racing course on a motorcycle in which the player needs to out-run a tanker truck that is chasing them. This stage was omitted from both the Game Gear and Master System versions.

  • Level 4: Plant explosive charges to destroy the Cyberdyne building.
  • Level 5: Defeat the T-1000 within the steel mill.
