Originally planned as a tie-in to the Terminator 3 film, instead Redemption launched about six months later while providing an alternative story perspective, weaving into & out of the events in the film.
The player takes on the role of Arnold Schwarzeneger's Terminator from the film, starting out in the future before we catch up with the film, back in the present day to to save John Conner as described in the film. About two-thirds through, we go back to the future to see how the Terminator gets sent back in time.
Gameplay features a mixture of vehicle combat, with a fun jumping takeover mechanic, 3rd person action & classic arcade "tunnel" gameplay.
A version of the first level was given away as a playable demo on copies of the "Terminator 3" game.
