    A hollow, morbidly generic, barely functional game. [Issue#163, p.84]
  2. Clichéd, generic, bland, boring and infuriating. [Mar 2008, p.120]

    Turok is one of those games where as soon as you spot an enemy (even if they have their back turned to you) the enemy picks up their weapon and shoots you and doesn't miss. This, I think, is the most frustrating part of the game. That and the look sensitivity. Totally strange. Dunno what it is. You will die ALOT. Yup Yup. And it has the stupidest pre-final battle i've ever seen. Extremely difficult. Won't be playing this one a second time. Full Review »

    Out in the great sea of first-person-shooters, Turok is a very, very weak effort. The graphics are bog standard, the difficulty is unpredictable and prone to sudden spikes, the human enemy AI is unbelievably bad, the controls feel clunky and the look sensitivity feels like a wet fish slipping through your fingers. With so many great games populating the FPS genre (check out Bioshock or Bulletstorm if you want a descent sci-fi flavored shooter), Turok is really, truly not worth your time or money. Full Review »

    First off I don't understand why everybody was hating on this game so much. Its actually pretty good for the most part. I admit it had a couple quirks, but nothing that couldn't be overseen.


    The biggest issue I had was the checkpoints, sometimes you'd play for 15-20 minutes just to die and have to start all over, And when you've died 3-4 times you've probably been playing the same section for over an hour.


    Graphics = Pretty good animations on characters and dinos, nothing ground breaking though.


    Playability = Easy to figure out, challenging to finish.


    Sound = Keep an ear out cause you cant always see whats coming for you.


    Difficulty = Hard to make checkpoints at times, but not overwhelming.


    Learning curve = Id say an hour or two, just to get comfortable.


    Value = Maybe not $60 but for $20 its a good buy.


    Overall value = The Turok series has seen a stinker or 2, but this one shows they're on the right track. If you've never played Turok than this is the one to get started on, its the best one so far.
