  1. A Contra-style side-scrolling action battler. [Oct 2002, p.198]
  2. Blowing away enemies and beasts on the small screen with a near perfect inventory and control system is rare for hand held systems

    The tight controls and constant action give this side-scroller the incredible rush that makes a successful shooter.
  4. The experience was a mixed bag because it was loads of fun with all the different weapons, but yet again, the really annoying respawning of soldiers will turn off many gamers.
  5. Turok Evolution is certainly a decent enough game, yet it does feel a little bit short and lacks in replay value.
  6. 42
    The game's tedious hit detection scheme is frustrating and at most times it feels like the game is cheating you.

    A great, classic-style side-scroller, the kind you rarely find anymore, bringing back memories if such classics as Contra and Blackthorne. Difficult, and the Boss stages could use some work, though. Expand
