I don’t know whether I should be excited or disappointed with this news. You see, Reef Entertainment announced today that it has acquired, from Studiocanal, the exclusive console video game rights for legendary motion-picture ‘The Terminator’ and the console and PC video game rights for its sequel ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’.
In short, Reef will create brand new video games based on the sought-after licenses entitled: ‘Terminators: The Video Game’.
That sounds great, however Reef will be also bringing us that Rambo game; an on-rails shooter that looks a bit… shall we say… awkward.
A Reef spokesperson said:
“Here at Reef we are huge fans of 1984 & 1991 Sci-Fi action master-pieces. It’s an incredible opportunity and an equally huge responsibility to create a game that does great justice to the motion-pictures. We are studying all aspects and influences of the Terminator universe defined in Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. We have started on our journey and are drawing on all the diverse materials available to produce a high quality, authentic and exciting Terminator video game.”
Reef will provide more information about its game as development continues.
Let’s hope that it will be at least better than what we’ve seen so far from the Rambo game.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
