  1. The sickest shooter this side of Xbox killer app "Halo."

    A very strong game! In fact it's one of the best available for the GC.

    A decent next phase for Turok.

    To get the most out of the Turok experience, don't hesitate to go with the superior GameCube version. [Oct 2002, p.80]

    If the developers concentrated on refining the action and devising even more creative ways to destroy, I would've loved Turok. [Nov 2002, p.133]
  6. There are quite a few cleverly incorporated puzzles and intriguing level layouts for those that like to play with their thinking caps on, but TE still manages to pack in the action for those that like to run and gun.
  7. It is such a shame to see this game not live up to its full potential.

    A solid title - but still, we would have loved to see a game that was less evolutionary and more revolutionary. [27 Sept 2002, p.89]

    Este juego, la verdad, era un poco malo, y justo ahí residía su encanto. Como si una peli de acción de serie B se tratara, Turok EvolutionEste juego, la verdad, era un poco malo, y justo ahí residía su encanto. Como si una peli de acción de serie B se tratara, Turok Evolution mezclaba dinosaurios, enemigos bizarros, sangre falsa, selvas, naves... Totalmente estúpido, pero a ratos era pasable y el multijugador tenía su gracia. Los controles eran algo toscos en ocasiones y la dificultad se disparaba a veces pero era tan surrealista que casi te hacía reír sin quererlo. Full Review »

    What a horrible, horrible game. Who in their right mind could compare this to Halo? Someone who smokes crack, that's who. The controls are godWhat a horrible, horrible game. Who in their right mind could compare this to Halo? Someone who smokes crack, that's who. The controls are god awful, no seriously, down moves the camera up and up moves the camera down, WHO PROGRAMS LIKE THIS? It's horrible!! The attacks are hilariously slow and pathetic. He looks like he is trying to tenderize a filet rather than kill a living thing. The story is abysmal, is there even one? The game is extremely linear on a system where it should be anything BUT linear. This game fails on every front imaginable except one: somewhat realistic looking dinosaurs. I seriously think that is all the developers focused on--having realistic dinosaur models and screw everything else. Even with all the fault's of the Nintendo 64's Turok 2, this game makes Turok 2 look like a masterpiece. What a pile of cow dung. Full Review »

    This is a good game which i bought for AU$15. definitely worth the money i spent. its full of action with meaty weapons and good graphics.This is a good game which i bought for AU$15. definitely worth the money i spent. its full of action with meaty weapons and good graphics. theyre not the best graphics but a lot of the weapon effects and environments like the lush jungles are nice. the character models are a bit blocky and sometimes bland, but overall i dont have anything to really complain about. in many missions it plays similarly to halo where you are in warzones and you have to help your allies. the only real complaint i have is a BUG in chapter 5 where doors open up but you cant go through. what you have to do though is blow up the respawning portals and then you can go through. this bug sorta spoils an overall fun shooter while it lasts (and it lasts for a pretty long time!).
