||Terminator 3: The Redemption||Audio developed for the Xbox, PS2 and GameCube|
“I worked with JD for nearly five years at Paradigm while he was Audio Director (He was sorely missed after moving to Ensemble). With such high responsibility as a director, JD kept the corporate starch loose and at arms length, maintaining a great attitude and approachable personality to the audio group. He always kept the lines of communication open and clear, audio tasks in focus and on track, and provided quality sound for implementation in all of our games. Like any successful manager, he allowed each of us in the audio group to do what we did best. I would recommend JD to anyone/everyone and hope to work with him in the future!”

"The sound effects are both loud and amazing... The cut scene and in-game action are all punctuated with plenty of auditory effects... you’ll hear the mechanical whirl of the Skynet patrol aircrafts, explosions, gunfire and cries of human resistance fighters getting slaughtered in the awful landscape. Overall, this is some pretty great stuff."

"The soundtrack is made up of plenty of music that sounds like it was ripped from the movie, and the in-game sound effects are actually pretty top-notch, further adding to the chaotic atmosphere of the action."
"It’s great hearing Arnold sound so robotically deadpan once again even if it’s for a little while but luckily he’s recorded enough one-liners to last through the entire game. The rest of the voices are performed decently enough and both John Connor and Kate Brewster sound like the actual actors from the film. Yet it’s the sound effects that win the big points here, ladies and gentlemen. Really, if you have a great sound system hooked up than this is the game to pump up the volume you’ll swear you’re listening to the movie. The soundtrack from the film also helps make this the best cinematic experience."
