Conclusion: Turok: Evolution isn’t necessarily a terrible game, but it surely isn’t a very good one either. Too many shortcomings on this title, and the feel of it being rushed out the door, really hold it back. The story is awful and not very engaging, and please don’t get me started on character dialogue. The controls, while simplistic and easy to use, aren’t up to snuff with the other FPS games at any level.
Excerpt: Let's get one thing straight: this game is all about insane action. In the intensity department, it ranks right up there with the Flood levels of Halo and the Serious Sam series. Gone are the days of Turok fighting on or two enemies at a time. In this game hordes of enemies are thrown in your path. This is run-and-gun action at its best, and I'm here to tell you it's a whole lot of fun.
Excerpt: Dinosaurs have always held their fair share of public interest. When the first dinosaur remains popped up around the start of the 20th century, humans were fascinated with them simply because it was not comprehendible at the time that there was once a species much more dominant than humans. This public interest led to a vast amount of research into these behemoths that once roamed the Earth. As this research continued, man began to learn more and more about dinosaurs.
Excerpt: Evolution: a gradual process in which something changes into a different form. Thus Turok Evolution, a game published by Acclaim for all current systems, is not necessarily better than its predecessors — just different. [GameCube version reviewed here] Turok is a first-person shooter set in the land time forgot. Our hero, Tal'Set, is a 19th-century Native American who has been pulled into a world teeming with dinosaurs and warring clans.
Summary: Ich gehörte zu denen, die geduldig auf "Turok Evolution" gewartet haben. Leider wurden nicht alle Erwartungen erfüllt. Grafisch hätte man aus der X-Box mehr rausholen können und der Schwiwerigkeitsgrad ist viel zu hoch angesetzt. Ein großes Lob kann man aber dem Multiplayer-Modus geben, wo man mit bis zu drei Freunden in verschiedenen Spielmodi antreten kann. Fans und Profis von 3D-Shootern werden aber auch im Singleplayer-Modus eine Menge Spaß haben.
