Turok series of video games is a very famous series. The latest edition to the series is called as Turok. Although the game still revolves around fighting with and killing the mutant dinosaurs, in fact this game which was released in January and February 2008 bears little resemblance with the previous games of the series.

The game is based on the comic series Turok. In this case Joseph Turok is the team leader and his spacecraft is hit and he reaches a planet alongside his team members. Now the task is to survive the attacks of the dinosaurs as well as finding and stopping Kane, who is up to making disastrous substances to harm the mankind. The genre of this game is first person shooter game. It is played in single player mode as well as in multiplayer mode with several other players competing with each other.

Review Summary

Turok is a mostly a shooting game. It features an interesting story, good writing, and stunning voice dubbing. The plot of the story is about Turok and his team going after a war criminal on a mysterious planet inhabited by dinosaurs. Turok features a variety of settings and challenges ending in an accomplished and satisfying way. Having to deal with both human soldiers and carnivorous dinosaurs, make the game more interesting than a normal shooting game. Turok's main weapon is a knife suitable for close furtive kills, and very quickly he gets his signature bow which is advertised on the loading screens. The bow allows for “silent kills”, meaning that he can kill quietly and silently. But this is not so simple; sometimes Turok can be in hiding and tackle the enemy without the latter or his accomplices noticing him. But at other times, though Turok can be well hidden, the enemy will instantly see Turok and open fire. Some players find Turok to be somewhat inconsistent. They also find that the game lacks on the visuals and the jungle lacks life. However Turok remains an entertaining shooter, with its good writing, and nicely diverse play it succeeds in pulling fans towards it.
