  1. An extremely entertaining shooter that is a must-have for any fan of the genre -- and that's not even taking into account the multi-player mode! Like GoldenEye before it, Turok 2 raises the bar for first-person shooters and is among the best titles available on the system.
  2. The Nintendo 64 has been slain by the power of the mighty Turok 2. As enjoyable as the game is, it is impossible to overlook the fact that the Nintendo 64's cartridge and memory limitations have been bested by this sensationally designed adventure.
  3. All in all, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is a great game and a worthy sequel. Those of you who loved "Turok: Dinosaur Hunter" will absolutely love this beauty. Turok 2 has managed to impress me just as much as its predecessor.

    It lacks pizzazz and will quickly become wearisome to shooting fans. Still, first-timers and action addicts won't want to miss out on its tight combat and horrific fun.
  5. One of the most enjoyable first-person perspective shoot 'em ups that I've ever played. If you enjoy this style of game, don't miss it! Oh, and be sure to get one of those 4MB expansion paks so that you can enjoy it in full high-resolution splendour.
  6. If you were a fan of the first game, you are sure to like the new installment.
  7. He is back with a furious and terrible anger indeed. Just as GoldenEye raised the bar for first-person shooters, so too has Turok 2. It's a landmark shooter and a must-buy.
  8. If the inexplicably maze-like levels weren't irksome enough, the fact that you will spend quite a bit of time negotiating them looking for save points will really strain your tolerance. Turok 2 is Quake with gorgeous graphics, poorly-planned (but attractive!) levels, and gimmicks out the wazoo.
  9. Perhaps the most impressive mode of the game is the multi-players, in which Acclaim put more thought into. With special design deathmatch stages, Turok 2 has the same if not, better multi player funfactor of "Goldeneye 007."
  10. Shooter fans take note, this is one of the best of its kind on the machine, especially when connected to the Expansion Pak. Time Turok and roll…

    It's nearly impossible not to enjoy Turok 2. The core game has its flashes of brilliance, but it also has some problems. Turok 2 really lives off its visuals and the art design, and the multiplayer experience pushes it over the top. If you enjoy console deathmatches, then you MUST own Turok 2!
  12. Seeds of Evil is an adrenaline thrill ride from start to finish. I strongly suggest a purchase as the multiplayer alone warrants a buy.
  13. After the very enjoyable Turok Dinosaur Hunter the first outing in the series, Turok 2 has officially killed what could have been a great series. It's hard to have fun playing a game where you have to sit still to have any remote chance of hitting your target.
  14. Turok 2: Seeds Of Evil has -- as a one-player game -- turned out to be good, but not the world-shaker everyone was expecting. It's Doom, basically -- a glorious-looking update of Doom, but Doom nevertheless. What saves Turok 2 is the multiplayer game, which is faster and smoother than Goldeneye.

    Some people don't like Turok 2 because it's difficult. I say those people are wimps! Turok 2 has graphics that are better than Goldeneye, and Perfect Dark. But it's not just the graphics that make this outstanding. The 1 player story mode is insanely long and with divese and exciting environments and enemies. There's also 4 player split screen which has a variety of modes. One of the more exciting multiplayer games is where 1 player is a monkey and all the other people have to hunt him down. It's tough because the monkey is small and elusive. It's one of those A+ titles that doesn't quite get the recognition it should. Full Review »

    The first fps I've ever played, and it's pretty damn good. The visuals for an N64 are excellent but at the cost of some bad frame rates at times. In the later levels, the game gets pretty hard but forgiving. Get this if you own an N64 (if they sell copies), if not, get it on an emulator (it won't ruin the experience). Full Review »
