    Turok: Dinosaur Hunter is an intriguing walk down memory lane, and Night Dive Studios have done their usual good job of optimizing it for modern hardware. That said Turok hasn’t aged very well at all, and there are some inherent flaws that keep the original from being as fun as the sequels.

    Despite the fact that Turok doesn't gel with the standards of today's first-person shooters, it nonetheless serves as a great nostalgia trip with retro gameplay that is delightfully old-school.

    Obviously there are better Turok games that could see the light of day on the PC market, but the original Dinosaur Hunter is what will hopefully be a good start for stronger ports to come. It's certainly worth enjoying all over again, especially if you're feeling nostalgic for the "good ol' days" of gaming. It's priced about right, too – for $20, you too can be Turok.

    Turok hasn't aged particularly well, but it still fun to play because of all the memories it brigs. Still, you might want to keep the fog on, because AI and the gunplay weren't designed to play without it.

    A piece of gaming history with some interesting changes in the gameplay, but basically thought for the nostalgic.

    Turok is a great example of a type of game the FPS genre moved away from, and is actually better to play now than it was in its original version.

    In every possible aspect Turok aged as gracefully as Donatella Versace and I honestly don’t see much sense in digging it out. [02/2016, p.43]

This is theLooks like there are a few filthy casuals down voting this masterpiece, so I guess I should step in and level the playing field. This is the Turok you remember from your N64 days. It is brutally hard, insanely difficult, and optimized for PC. What exactly were you expecting? No It's not a full high definition 'remaster' , all of the old graphics are intact. If that bothers you , play any of the dozens of other modern shooter games with fancy graphics. 10/10 Expand

This game will make you miss Turok and 3D fps adventureHolds up well and the enhanced features go a long way to revitalize this classic. This game will make you miss Turok and 3D fps adventure games.This is worth getting for a number of reasons. This was one of the first evolutions to the fps genre. Before Turok, Doom's 3D Gauntlet style was the format the industry borrowed from. Turok added a more open ended adventure aspect to the genre much like Metroid and was the first console shooter to have fully 3d rendered models and worlds.

    The old visual style is still very appealing if you are not comparing it to today's hardware. It would be nice to see indy devs go with this updated hd n64 look.

    The controls here are better than modern games in many ways. The modern fps has simulated running, and reload animations. IMO Turok's auto run feature makes it more fun to explore large environments. It shows where modern design has gone wrong. If I wanted a simulation shooter I would shoot for absolute realism, and not half step it.This isn't the case with Turok, it is pure fantasy.

    This game should be viewed as a lesson for modern designers. Take most of what this game has to offer, streamline it a bit more, show the key locations on the map, reduce enemy respawns, add co-op, and give it a hardware makeover.

    personal notes--
    There is really not much dated matterial here, just under used. Dated is really simplistic scripted events that give less interactivity, which equals to a lesser experience. Holding in a run button was outdated back in the Resident Evil days, yet to be hip, they think a wacky arcade shooter needs real world simulation feedback to engage players. Modern games are fun, but misguided.

    It's a full controller support, and you can play it with almost any supported controllers.

    The flaws was, the graphics was old-school s--t, but it was fine...

This game looks dreadful, it's not a great remake of a great game. It will still give you a headache just because how the game is stylized. And to top it of, the game is so challenging for how bad it is. Don't pay money for this. Expand
