Oh, I saw Terminator 2 before the original as well. It isn't about me being disappointed in the second one not living up to the first or anything like that (besides, I've always found judging a film based on your expectations to be kind of silly), it's just simply that I don't find what 2 does as interesting. I kind of look at it in the same way as I look at Alien and Aliens. Alien is an impressive mix of sci-fi and horror, whereas Aliens is just kind of dumber and more explosiony in comparison which doesn't tend to appeal to me as much. (though as I said I do like Terminator 2, and it's definitely my favourite by quite some distance of the three classics we've screened so far this semester)
On a slightly more flippant note, I also prefer how little Schwarzenegger speaks in the first Terminator compared to the second
