Excerpt: Terminator is perhaps the very first movie that made actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and director James Cameron famous over night. Terminator 2: Judgment Day came a few years later and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (or short T3), still in production and supposed to be out in 2003, is rumored to be the most expensive movie ever - of course featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger again.
Excerpt: Sequels seldom surpass the brilliance of the original work. However, there is a no more sterling example of an exception than Terminator 2. I have few hopes next year's T3 film will be its equal, and if Terminator: Dawn of Fate, an Xbox and PlayStation 2 game from Infogrames, is any indication, my fears are justified. [PS2 version reviewed here] Dawn of Fate is set in the bleak future of the year 2027, long after the nuclear holocaust known as Judgment Day.
