  1. Simply put, this is the best Turok game yet and second only to "Perfect Dark" as a first person shooter.
  2. Easily the best in the series and one of the best first-person shooters on the system.
  3. It offers a different experience than "Perfect Dark" and "TWINE" and Turok 3 is worth a look.
  4. 80
    With tons of multiplayer options, cool new technological levels, and two slightly different characters to try, the new "Turok" should offer enough to keep you busy when you're tired of "Perfect Dark."
  5. Multiplayer is just as frenetic as always, including 8 modes from the classic Monkey Tag to Capture the Flag.
  6. "Turok 3" isn't the most beautiful or detailed addition to the series, but it plays the smoothest.
  7. Murky, poorly defined graphics, an atrocious frame rate and terrible level design culminate to produce a title almost completely lacking in entertainment value whatsoever. Avoid like the black death.

    Turok 3 is a genuinely good FPS game which, despite being clearly rushed, manages to improve upon not only Turok 2, but the games it draws influence from, such as Half Life and System Shock 2.

    The graphics are remarkable, the character models and shadow effects in particular standing as some of the best on the N64. The story is well told, the voice acting is well done, and while the combat isn't as fluid as something like Perfect Dark, it is still competent.

    The multiplayer is passable, though no real competitor to Perfect Dark. It has 48 maps, and bots.

    This game is a dark horse, and an unappreciated gem. I am tempted to give it 9 out of 10, but I'll settle for 8 out of 10. The game does have issues, but these don't prevent it being an amazing game.

    This is awful. The gameplay is absurd, with the requirement to repeat actions entirely after every death. Virtually unplayable.
