    It start nice, with dinosaurs and large landscape. Too bad that the story is almost non-existant, and the fixed checkpoint system is true hell, since you can go on with almost 10minutes and dozens of enemy killed before reaching one (with means doing again and again AND AGAIN the same sequence only for some moments of bad luck).

    It's a fun and enjoyable game in the first couple of maps, then it look like any other FPS, with lame AI's and less of what makes the genre great, killing dinosaurs. I find the knifekill/scenematics good at first, but lame after a while. The stealth system is lame too, you can sneak around and make silent kill's.... In the beginning, then the AI notice you no matter what you do.

    If a new Turok game were to be released, I would say more dinosaurs, knife and bow, and less soldiers that you can fight in any other game.

    Excellent game play I received grand satisfaction for slitting as many dinosaur throats as I could... The story line is sketchy but who really cares when you get to kill dinosaurs.

    Killing dinosaurs sounds great. When you kill them with knife looks awesome 1st time and 2nd time, but 100. time too boring, scripted knife kills in third person view is sucks. The checkpoint system very bad, the AI is cheating, very hard to kill them. The graphics are not good. The game is linear.

    A very average FPS. The graphics are a bit dated by today's standards (foliage especially) but the game play is fun and fast paced. Though the checkpoint save method can be a pain and the enemy AI is as dumb as they come, the "3 Star" action film feel and ability to knife dinosaurs more than makes up for it.

    Turok is old enough now that it can be had for a few dollars, and it's well

    Turok is old enough now that it can be had for a few dollars, and it's well worth playing at that price range. Set your expectations right and this title can offer some really good times.

    This game's only real redeeming factor is, obviously, DINOSAURS. The 'characters' are entirely forgettable, the 'story' is a boring rip-off, the graphics are unimpressive, and the gameplay is unimpressive. I did like that there was a decent diversity of weapons, many with alternate fire modes, but that's hardly sufficient to carry a game.

It is fun to fight dinosaurs--especially when it comes to stabbing raptors in the face or slitting the throats of compys--but unfortunately you spend all too much time listening to boring 'characters' talk and fighting human mercenaries with bad AI. Definitely worth a play-through, so long as you're not a wanker that doesn't like dinosaurs, but be prepared for some frustration along the way. Expand

    I personally enjoyed this game. Very interesting setup: jungle and dinosaurs. And sniping with the bow and arrows is excellent! Graphics was also good for that time.

    There's no doubt that Turok can be fun, but ultimately, the feeling of satisfaction that comes with slitting a raptor's throat or pulling off a headshot with your bow is lost in the shuffle of swarming enemies, less than stellar visuals and a story that disappears.
  2. The human A.I. aren't all that intelligent, but what they lack in brains they make up for in resilience.
  3. Dinosaurs rescue an otherwise underwhelming shooter.
