  1. The sickest shooter this side of Xbox killer app "Halo."
  2. It's been too long since I've played an FPS that contains this much engaging challenge and fierce energy. [Oct 2002, p.80]
  3. One great looking game on the Xbox as opposed to the PS2 version. The jungles of the Lost Land will have you admiring the scenery the minute you step out into your first mission.

    With "Halo" and a host of other games that take advantage of the Xbox hardware available, purchasing is not advised.
  5. 70
    Clumsy computer A.I. and awful multiplayer games nick this game to only a single-player and a nice rental adventure.
  6. Although it is mindless fun in short bursts, its problems, such as rare restart points, dodgy graphics and the flying stages really overwhelm the good stuff -- weapon selection, general violence and mayhem -- and leaves the overall package as somewhat disappointing.
  7. 16
    One of the ugliest, sloppiest, silliest games I've ever played. [Nov 2002, p.60]

    A few glitches in the game have driven the critics crazy. But I found it wonderful. Best hunting game out there in my opinion.

    Yes it was that bad! I can't believe the developers at the face to release this, they haven't made an attempt to use the power of Yes it was that bad! I can't believe the developers at the face to release this, they haven't made an attempt to use the power of the console. I had a sneaking suspicion that prequels were rubbish after I watched Star Wars: Phantom Menace at the flicks. Turok Evolution has confirmed it. Graphics are mediocre, most of the enemy characters look 2D, and something else which illustrates the whole 2D feel is the way flat 2D walls of ferns prevent you from walking our of the environment. Just play the first level and you?ll see what I mean. Getting over how poor everything looks the actual game isn?t much good either. The most challenging thing is fending off the little ankle biter type dinosaurs which leap at you from every 2D bush. Halo has set the standard for FPS, the standard is high but I wish these people had a decent crack at it. Expand
