  1. A good start that quickly falls off into a discombobulated mess of the story’s true purpose but is successful in constantly delivering hordes of baddies to tear apart.
  2. Ultimately, Turok is the kind of game which you either like very much, or you hate and uninstall it after the first 10 minutes.
  3. The human A.I. aren't all that intelligent, but what they lack in brains they make up for in resilience.

    Turok is a decent game with obvious flaws. Its first steps as a reborn franchise are decent ones, though it's difficult to recommend over so many other titles on the PC market.

    It's terribly inconsistent and feels like a shooter from the last century. [Aug 2008, p.74]
  6. Years ago Turok was an instant hit on game consoles. But today on PC things are different. The controls are probably the worst of all console-to-PC conversions and not editable. It's not possible to save the game freely and save points are so rare, it almost feels like the developers want you to give up. Turok fails in level design and game controls, but we've played it until the end because it tells an interesting story.

    Mediocre and dismally uninspired. [July 2008, p.88]

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 worth playing at that price range. Set your expectations right and this title can offer some really good times.

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). Graphic is ok, sound is ok, gameplay is "ok".... i give it a value of 10bucks, not a dollar/euro more. Expand

    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 genreIt'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.

    Killing dinosaurs sounds great. When you kill them with knife looks awesome 1st time and 2nd time, but 100. time too boring, scripted knifeKilling 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. Collapse
