Conclusion: If you have played the Nintendo 64 Banjo-Kazooie you are probably aware of a feature called Stop ‘N’ Swop. Scattered across the many levels of the game are six colored eggs and an ice key, which until now, were useless.
Excerpt: Turok is a disappointing game. It's a disappointing game for a number of reasons, not least because the original N64 Turok and its sequel evoke some brilliant gaming memories from my younger days, fighting my way through hoards of fabulously rendered dinosaur foes in a delicious post- Quake world of...
Conclusion: From the looks of the near 30-minute demo, Turok looks like it is going to be one awesome game. Killer graphics, exciting gameplay, and an engaging story are all banding together to revitalize one of the gaming world's lost gems.
Summary: It's impressive how far slitting a dinosaur's neck can go toward saving an otherwise mediocre game from becoming immediate bargain-bin fodder. Without the lumbering lizards, Turok's middling artificial intelligence, spotty difficulty, and average production values would make it a merely functional...
Pros: You exterminate lots and lots of dinosaurs, The dinos are fun to shoot and behave in interesting ways, Knife kills and other fun tricks are tremendously satisfying
Cons: Quicksave feature is broken, Cheap deaths, Problematic artificial intelligence, Underwhelming production values and poor performance
Summary: Turok is a perfect example of a next-gen game almost being good, with close-minded, repetitive and sometimes punishing try-die-and-try-again game design dragging down some of the impressive technical accomplishments.
Conclusion: While Turok may not be doing anything to evolve the genre, it's tough to deny that the franchise could be back where it belongs in quality. Plus, just the thought of how the dinosaurs alone will affect this experience with A.I.
Summary: When Turok came out for the N64, it was met with mixed opinions. While fans of first-person action games championed Turok as a game innovative in its class, many were up in arms about the game's over-the-top bloodshed, causing certain stores to embargo the cartridge.
