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. In an ending sequence of the game, Mumbo Jumbo discusses that the secrets behind these items would be revealed in the game’s follow-up, Banjo-Tooie . The thing is, it never really happened.
Excerpt: Product Description This is one of a handful of classic PC games that really delivered. A powerful first-person shooter style game that includes some incredible battles with the ferocious beasts we have come to know as Dinosaurs. First released back in 1997 this program garnered many awards through leading gamers magazines. This spawned an equally successful, but less critically acclaimed program titled --Turok 2 : Seeds of Evil.
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. And who could say no to a FPS that takes place on an alien planet with dinosaurs? I figure it is a formula that works, and I am so happy to see Turok revitalized and poised to come full circle in February 2008 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3!
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. that finally gives the game a more realistic look is plenty to be attractive.
Excerpt: Turok began his video game career more than a decade ago on the Nintendo 64, where he garnered some fairly positive reviews and also assisted in defining the First Person Shooter genre on consoles. Sequel after sequel was released, and eventually Turok fell apart, with the rather mediocre Turok: Evolution assumed to be the final nail in the franchises coffin.
Summary: Так и получился ещё один TimeShift – с большим бюджетом, без slo-mo, но зато с динозаврами. Если хочется провести время в компании брутальных мужиков подобных нашему другу с ирокезом на голове, то лучше обратиться к Gears of War или Kane&Lynch: Deadmen .
