    Probably one of the most underrated games for the Nintendo 64, Turok 2 was an excercise in originality, with original designs for weapons, levels, enemies, music, and almost everything about the game screamed "originality" back then in 1998. It was also most definately the goriest game up to 1998, with the ability to blow off heads, limbs, and even holes through enemies, the gore seemed almost limitless. But that's not what Turok 2 was about, Turok 2 was about traversing surreal environments fighting enemies which seemed completely foreign to us. They were all fought with different tactics, had different weaknesses, and were even excluded to specific environments. Besides the amazing gore and atmosphere and diversity that the game provided, it also had an extraordinarily dark, creepy, thrilling, and even mysterious soundtrack, one which alluded to the grisly setting the game took place in while also sounding mystifyingly deep. The game had few faults, one being poor a framerate at many moments in the game due to it's excellent graphics and because of how many things can happen on-screen at once and the larger view range. This game rightfully deserves a place amongst the top 100, no, top 50 FPS games of all time, it was extremely polished and had massive amounts of replayability. Expand

    Classic FPS game for N64. Huge arsenal for you to kill all the enemies (and there are a lot, certainly). Levels are huge and enemies are very dangerous. There are lots of secrets too. The music is good. On the other side, the game is very hard. Is easy to get lost and killed. Some maps can be tricky because you need to search for keys or hidden paths.

    Turok 2 looks like an early PS2 title, plays like a refined Doom and has the arsenal of a whole army. Casual gamers beware, this quest is "Nintendo-Hard". It takes time to stack up from the starting bow and claw, to learn how to platform and to use the map properly in the vast, enormous labyrinths. The game will push you to the limits of your skills, patience and serenity. You WILL pray to get an extra life, specially after level 3, where you´ll die time after time, both cheap and honest, difficult demises. What I mean is that this game is punishing, so much that many cannot beat it without cheats even today. Fans of Metroid Prime should definitely play it though, as T2 has a lot of basework for the "action adventure" that would develop later on the gamecube. It will also push the n64 to it´s limits, so be warned that IF your console is not in top shape, the jumper/expansion pack may overheat and Reset the game (for real, look it up. It´s a common problem). In the end, this game is proof of why oldschool gamers look at "Halo-generation" gamers with disdain. While overlooked by many in favour of the popular Goldeneye, the cognossieurs know it! It´s long, it´s though, it´s manly!!! It´s "Turok 2: Seeds of evil". Expand

    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).

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Seeds of Evil is an adrenaline thrill ride from start to finish. I strongly suggest a purchase as the multiplayer alone warrants a buy.
