Let's start with the good news--Turok 2: Seeds of Evil throws hordes of superbly animated evil mutants and overevolved dinosaurs into the range of an arsenal that makes other games' weapon collections look like lonely baseball bats hanging on a beat-up pickup truck's rifle rack. Start with a battle-claw for hand-to-hand combat and a bow and arrow for longer shots, then move up to plasma rifles and a heat-seeking missile launcher. Since you can't fire heat-seeking missiles underwater, Turok 2 has specialized SEAL-style weapons, such as a harpoon gun and concussion torpedoes. When mere human-sized weapons aren't enough, saddle up on the back of a friendly dinosaur and charge into battle, firing a dino-mounted 20mm cannon.

Want more good news? OK. Unlike many first-person shooter games, Turok 2 provides its bad guys with decent artificial intelligence. You may have to dodge mutants working together to set up a crossfire, or run down enemies who are too smart to just step in front of your weapons. And while you're shooting all the evil monsters and tracking down cowards who flee from your big guns, you'll enjoy well-rendered scenery from five different worlds.

If this sounds great to you, and you enjoy exploring strange alien environments and shooting nearly everything that moves, you'll enjoy Turok 2.

But there are some problems that might prevent you from enjoying it completely. The biggest annoyance is that the game's excellent artificial intelligence isn't matched by intelligent-level design. This is one of those games that requires you to search every corner to find the key you need to unlock the door on the other side of the honeycomb of tunnels. You'll need to use the game's mapping tools to make sure you've looked behind each big door for the small clues and behind each small barrel for the big clues. If you're a master of the Zen of Just-Wandering-Around, Turok 2 won't bother you; but if you're the type of gamer who wants to feel a sense of urgency or a sense that your actions are meshing with a larger story, you may end up tapping your fingers and thinking about other challenges. --Rob Heinsoo

Pros:

  • Diverse arsenal of powerful and original weapons
  • Great monster animation and monster death-throes
  • Smart monsters who run away and team up against you
  • Decent multiplayer game
Cons:
  • Inconsistent-level design
  • No sense of urgency

From the Manufacturer

Having defeated the Campaigner in the original Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, Turok attempts to destroy the Chronoceptor by throwing it into a volcano. In doing so, Turok unwittingly awakens an even more deadly foe--The Primagen--who lies imprisoned in a spacecraft buried at the core of the lost land. Turok must stop the Primagen from escaping his prison and breaking through the wall dividing the lost world from Earth.

Personally, I thought Turok 2 was an awesome game. The graphics were very good, the sound effects were good, and the music was by far some of the best Acclaim has come out with. This game has some sweet levels. Most are very large and take quite some time to explore. And with levels like The Hive, you feel like you're actually there. Extremely gripping and intense. As some have said, there aren't the tons and tons of monsters to blow away around every corner, but if you want a game like that, play DOOM. In Turok 2, the monsters are a little more realistic. Hordes and hordes of monsters isn't realistic, but a group of about 2 or 3 waiting in ambush around a corner is. Very well done. I've played it through several times and I enjoyed it every time.

This game was excellent in the special effects, sound, most-of-the-graphics departments. It's graphics could still compete with games like Unreal Tournament, they wouldn't win any game-of-the-year awards, but they wouldn't be automatically discounted. It's AI has it's moments, for example, unlike the brutes in Unreal, they don't just head straight at you pistols blazing. Instead they'll hide when you're sporting a big old can o' whoopass. Also, ambient noises, music, and other such audio effects are great, for example, even the two different pistols (normal, and mag 60) make different noises.
But, with the more recent games coming out like Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, and Quake, it isn't possible for this game to stay in the spotlight. First of all, it's storyline/levels are too slow, and Turok walks way too slowly. Second, what kind of bases/enemy homelands (second two-thirds of the game's levels) have conveniently placed savepoint systems installed just for their enemies?
I give it five stars considering that it still makes at minimum a decent addition to one's game collection, and, for fans of the Turok series, it may even be a excellent one. Of course, I was hoping they'd make a PC version of Rage Wars for the internet, and also bring Turok 3 to PC too. I hear the graphics and AI in T3 have drastically improved, unfortunately, I've all but stopped buying N64 games in the wait for "Dolphin" or "Gamecube", whatever they're gonna call it. So I probably won't buy it until it's price goes down to that of Turok 2's. By then it'll be out of date and I won't want it.

I am a huge Turok fan, But this was My least favorite. It's still good, Don't get Me wrong, But the area's are way too long. It take's like a week or so, To get past the first level! Still, it's pretty good. And it's really fun, With cheat's.

Turok 1 was set as the first 3d platforming fps ever which it was, then Turok 2 was set as the first game as well as fps to ever have 3d polygonal fire ever seen. Turok has set a lot of records and yet no one really appreciates it. I don't know if it's just acclaim (who I love) that no one likes or people these days are just getting pickier and pickier with every year growing. Turok 2 as well as Armorines (also acclaim) were the first games to actually do what we have today. What I mean is that in Turok 2 you don't just walk the whole game you ride a Dinosaur with machine guns and grenade launchers attached to it and you run over, kill, destroy, explode, Enemies to get to the point from A to B so you can move further off into the game leaving a C and D point. Even in Armorines you are a gun man in your own Marine space ship and you have to kill highly intelligent bugs. The AI in Turok 2 also set the games record again to actually have working AI even today I see games with AI that cannot be compared to Turok 2 enemies AI but I see it as i you can still die by them then the AI shouldn't really matter because it is just a game. But I was still stunned by the AI. Also the death animation is fantastic also another Turok record or Fps/any game record, The death animation is hilarious and entertaining all the way through out the game and never ever gets old because their are at least 5 different death animations per enemy and all the weapons were just jaw dropping. Most weapons I have ver seen in a game where today you only get 2. Why? But with all the weapons in Turok 2 that are all very very interesting you have a variety of weapons to use and to see and get and just opens up a whole new interest in playing the game.Read more ›

Okay this game was crazy hard when I was little, I couldn't even beat the first level. In fact, it came to the point where I made my friend beat the game so I can unlock the cheats! Pathetic huh? You know whats even more pathetic, I still couldn't beat the levels with the cheats on!!! Argggg!! But that was many many years ago, when I really sucked at games. When beating a game was like winning a gold medal in the Special Olympics. Nowadays, I'm smarter and brighter, I think. I beat games easily even when the majority of the players think its too hard. So my plan is to buy the game on PC and own it!
By the way, the graphics are awesome and the game play is moody. Its like, you slowly edge your way towards the end of the narrow passage and the music gets a little strange. Suddenly something dashes in front of you, this is where you pee in your pants, and you start strifing backwards and shooting your a*s off like a maniac on meth. The game is alittle frustrating and can be dizzy at times. Sometimes I can't stand it no more and I have to shut it off just to clear my head. I already bought WC3 but this is the next game I'm gonna buy. Why? Because I said so!!
Too much coffee, meh!
