    This is what modern-day "Metroid Prime" wasn't - an immersive FPP adventurer of epic scale, yielding a succesful balance between exploration and twitch challenge. Not as good as the prequel, though, but surely worth being recommended.

    The main problem is the horrible gameplay. The character you're supposed to control seems to weight a ton, and the levels are way too dark, repetitive and uninteresting. Great sound, music and graphics. The weapons are cool. But that is not enough. The multiplayer mode is also a letdown.

    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 seemedProbably 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. Collapse

  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.
