Atari has today announced the North American release of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Game Boy Advance. The first-person action game, which was developed by Black Ops, is based on the movie released this summer and marks the first time that Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice and likeness has ever appeared in a video game.
"With both the Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines movie DVD and video game releasing today, fans can watch the Terminator in action on their home theaters and one minute later become the Terminator on their favorite game system," said Steve Allison, vice president of marketing at Atari's Los Angeles studio. "The Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines video game takes the movie to an entirely new level. Not only do players get to play through the plot of the feature film nearly line for line, but they'll also be able to experience firsthand everything that happened just prior to the feature film's start. How was the Terminator sent back this time? How did he kill John Connor? And, what does SkyNet really look like? All of these questions, and more, are answered in the game."
