“J.D. is a self-starter and extremely motivated. He has a great focus on quality and is self-conscious of his deadlines. He brings both his years of experience and professionalism to the office every day. I enjoyed working with him and was never afraid of him getting the job done. J.D. is a pleasure to work with and I would definitely enjoy doing so again.”

"The game not only sounds like you're
playing with John Conner's crew, it does so as if you were inside
a movie theater. Available in all sorts of different sound modes,
gamers have a huge assortment of choices to listen with. From
standard mono and stereo options to surround and Dolby Pro Logic
II, there's a setting for just about everyone. The DPL2 selection
is the highest quality of the bunch and if you have the sound
system to support it can make Dawn of Fate the best audio experiences
yet available for PlayStation 2. This game sounds fantastic.
Pumped up in Dolby Pro Logic II and overflowing with authentic
audio effects, Dawn of Fate is just like the films."
"The sound effects department sure deserves a good pat in the back for the great job in capturing effects of the plasma weapons and the mechanical sounds of the exoskeleton Terminator make when they move--they sound straight out of the movie! The score also adds to the drama of the cut scenes and intense battles... As far as the sound effects are concerned, Dawn of Fate manages to get it right. Plasma weapons and all of the Skynet machines, like the seek-and-destroy ships flying overhead on the top surface world, sound straight out of the movie. Listening carefully, you can hear the explosions reverberate throughout the underground passages or empty structures."

"While the visuals are acceptable, it doesn’t come close to matching the beauty of the sound effects and great score. Aside from the explosions, much emphasis is placed on giving the machines and futuristic weaponry that genuine film quality sound and it works beautifully here because you’ll swear you’ll recognize the sound effects. Thanks to the Dolby Surround Sound capabilities featured in this game, gamers will surely delight in hearing the dramatic cinematic score and the astonishing sound effects peppered throughout the game. The score sounds a lot like the film’s score and fans of the films will, no doubt, appreciate it. With a great sound system hooked up to your system, you can’t go wrong. Gamers will be able to hear all the wonderful mechanical sounds of the Terminators such as the whirling components that make up their limbs or the eerie clanking of their metallic feet against concrete."
