    Excellent platformer, worth 9 if you like the genre it's a non sense to give a bad rating to an excellent game just because you don't like the genre! Tork one of the best platformers.

    Platforming is my fav genre, but this one is way too bare bones, even for a discounted game. In the limited selection of platformers on xbox, this is among the worst that I've tried. It's not that it's unplayable or anything. The problem is that nothing in it impresses. How Play magazine can call it "one of the prettiest games ever", is simply ridiculous. The enemies repeat Platforming is my fav genre, but this one is way too bare bones, even for a discounted game.

How Play magazine can call it "one of the prettiest games ever", is simply ridiculous. The enemies repeat over and over. The environments are simple, bland, and don't have a lot going on in them. And the graphics look like they could be pulled off on the ps1. Mostly this game just disappoints. Tork originally looked like it would be among the xbox's best, but then it's development went into hibernation for literally years. It looks like they brought it out to finish the project as cheap as possible. The results show. Expand

    As any gamer will tell you, it's not necessarily about the innovative pathways a title forges, but in how it handles - and Tork handles the curves smoothly. [March 2005, p.79]
  2. There's no shame at all in putting out a solid effort like this. The only "bad" thing that could be said about it is that it's not revolutionary.
  3. Tork is a fairly short game, especially because of the skew towards younger gamers.
