    Acclaim's solid first-person shooter is heavy on the fog. It is atmospheric, though. [Jan 2004, p.189]
  2. Describing the stages in Turok as mere 'levels' doesn't really do them justice - it took us almost two hours to find everything in the first one alone, and they get bigger!
  3. Turok has some good points (namely the graphics and weapons) and some bad points (confusing level design and overuse of fog), but the overall game is still fun to play.

    It's a stupid, linear 1st person shooter with a lack of enemy-intelligence.

    Turok was for me a truely unique and awe-inspiring experience at the time. My Nintendo 64 days would not have been the same without the Turok Turok was for me a truely unique and awe-inspiring experience at the time. My Nintendo 64 days would not have been the same without the Turok series, and the first part (Dinosaur Hunter) still remains the be the best ever Turok, even after all this time. Full Review »
