Summary: I must admit to having a soft spot for Turok so with nothing better to do one evening I revisited this one - and then quickly discovered why I gave up on it. It is hard to believe that it was Twenty years ago that this wonderful gem made it off the pages of a 1950's comic book into the game world in what was one of the most original and promising franchises of the age.
Summary: Turok is a game that should have been tested more before being released. This game made my computer artifact for no reason (my pc wasn't even hot), and no other game does that.--I have played many modern games such as multible unreal 3 engine games, which turok is, source games, crytek games such as far cry and crysis/crysis warhead. This game is broken: Triggers mess up.
Summary: This game can be fun in the single player mode. Really disappointed by the multi first it's a frickin ghost town, second the way the the multi is set up there is no browser the game decides who and where u play with it's kinda retarded.
Summary: What is truly amazing with this game is how trivial it looks and how fast it generates a feeling of "been there - done that". Yes, even if someone is new to the TUROK series - and I am not: I came with high expectations. Graphically the game is beautiful yet not very original - and I for one did not appreciate the ever present darkness...The designers probably aimed for atmospheric terror but they obviously overshot their mark.
Summary: This game sucks! If u like playing the same parts over and over again, then by all means buy this game. There are multiple times when u die and the game gets hung up somehow and ur in limbo and have to restart from an earlier point. There is no quick saves, even though the game has a button for it.

Summary: Overlooked by the majority of the gaming community, Touchstone's and Propaganda Games' Turok is a multiplatform game released in 2008 whose sci-fi plot sounds interesting at first glance: STORY: You play the protagonist Joseph Turok, a Native American 'Wolf Pack' Black Ops member, who abandons his mentor General Roland Kane after witnessing the cruelties they inflict upon civilians during their missions and is reinstated as a marine, joining Whiskey Company aboard a...
Summary: Firstly, I'm not giving this two stars because my PC can't run it. It runs very nicely, thanks very much. I'm giving it two stars because thats really what it deserves. If you want the quick story here, this is a lackluster effort which does not meet its own product description, but if you see it for ten quid in a bargain basket in a year or so, pick it up then. For a little more depth, let me explain the above.
Summary: Well I have finally finished the game. It was nothing on the last Shoot-em up I played (Bioshock). It is a very linear game with quite a few cut scenes. If you like the Rambo style killings (like me) with a knife and Compound bow then you will get 30 minute fun out of it, but after that it just becomes a chore to complete with no fun rewards. It has a strong console feel, but suppose that is to be expected. The controls are the standard simple jump, crouch and fire.
