Summary: You'll find this under a fiver in a lot of game shops bargain bins (and as a used item here) and in terms of value, that is excellent. This is a huge, immersive, atmospheric and very playable FPS. You'll keep cpming back again to again to its massive levels with a psychotic and determined gleam in your eye. In fact, you'll have to keep coming back again and again, as the most frustrating aspect of this is the lack of humane 'save' features.
Summary: Turok Evolution seems to have generated a hugely polarized audience - more than any other game for the Xbox I have seen reviewed in fact. People should stop drawing comparisons with Halo - the fact they are both FPSs is really irrelevant. The criticisms I take on board are the annoying flying levels late on in the game; sometimes the environments do become a little 2D; maybe one or two additional saves within larger levels would have been desirable.
Summary: Having had both titles on the N64 I was looking forward to the release of Evolution and wasn't disappointed. The plethora of weapons is awesome, with several secondary functions to expand your firepower. Like Halo, the attention to detail was mind-blowing and it all enhanced the gameplay. If there was one drawback, it's the saving in the game. You can almost complete reasonably large levels, and if you die it's back to the beginning.
It's not the Second Coming, but it's still a good blast.

Summary: I've read a number of mixed reviews about this game and I have to say that after the amount of hype surrounding the game on launch I felt a little deflated to see it getting some average reviews. Despite this I bought the game (for the XBox) and I have to say that I love it. It's a truly immersive experience. The music score is excellent, which creates great atmosphere, and the graphics successfully produce interesting and lush environments.
Summary: This game does stay true to the turok games from the past but the controls could have been alot better. Aiming with the pistol or the bows when not using the sniper function is extremely difficult and annoying! The weapons are balanced quite well and the weapon upgrade options add more complexity to this turok game. The flying levels in this game are amazing and very action packed. These are by far the best parts of the game.
Summary: I think that this pretty much sums up Turok, which is a good (but not great) FPS in which you basically run around killing a variety of dino-men and dinosaurs, with a limited amount of very simple key related puzzles. There is nothing very new in this game (thought there are a few nice touches, such as your enemies throwing up when shot with poison arrows), indeed having played the classic N64 version a few years back, I thought that this game was very similar in terms...
Summary: Hallo erstmal, Also ich habe mir die englische Version, sprich PAL Uncut Version bestellt und auch erhalten. Vorab, ich habe benutze eine 7.1 Dolbydigital Decoder den ich auch an meinem X Box angeschlossen habe. Noch im Intro Merkt überraschte es mich was für ein genialer Sound das Game hat. Nicht nur Im Intro sondern auch im Game selbst. Zur Grafik: Die Grafik ist spitze, allein die animationen der Waffen ist einmalig, soetwas habe ich selbst bei Halo nicht gesehen.
