The Story
You are Joseph Turok, once a member of Wolf Pack — the most savage, merciless black ops squad of its time. Now, you have been attached by special order to Whiskey Company, an elite commando team, for what should have been a simple mission: Capture and detain Roland Kane from his fortress on a worthless, backwater planet. Kane is an escaped war criminal, the once-legendary leader of Wolf Pack...and your former mentor. Unbeknownst to you and your team, Kane is in command of a secret paramilitary force funded by the Mendel-Gruman (M-G) Corporation. As Whiskey Company's ship approaches the planet, it is blasted out of the sky by Kane's troops. Suddenly, your simple mission isn't quite so simple. Even worse, it quickly becomes apparent that Mendel-Gruman scientists have been terraforming and genetically engineering the once-barren planet for accelerated evolution.

The Trouble with Dinosaurs
The trouble is that they like meat and that’s just what you are to them. So your number one rule is don’t get eaten. Far from cuddly, the genetically altered prehistoric beasts that Mendel-Gruman has unleashed on the landscape of the world you are dropped into come in all shapes, sizes. Although game developer, Propaganda Games, drew from Earth’s own fossil record, they also let their creative juices flow as they created the deadly fauna of the game. Just a few of the beasties players will have to deal with are:

Velociraptors – Velociraptors are some of the most vicious and deadly predators on the planet. Beware, they can charge their prey, knocking them backwards and then mauling them with their deadly claws and teeth.

Mini-Raptors – Despite their diminutive size, mini-raptors move quickly and often hunt in packs, making them a deadly enemy.

Dilophosaurus – This large dinosaur is a mean carnivore with a huge appetite. It has a large crest on its head and can use its powerful tail to knock down enemies.

Lurkers – Like a cross between a dinosaur and a powerful jungle cat, Lurkers prowl the jungle, climbing and positioning themselves on trees and rocks, always ready to pounce on its next prey.

Soldier Bugs – These eight legged creatures look like the common scorpion, but they are much bigger and deadlier. They can be encountered in caves and other dark, enclosed areas on the planet. They are often seen in swarms, and due to their large size can easily overcome prey.

T-Rex – The Mother of all dinosaurs, the T-Rex is the smartest and largest of all creature enemies on this terraformed planet. Turok and Whisky company will have many run-ins with the T-Rex throughout the campaign.

In addition to these, other creatures also roam the jungles and caves of the planet, some carnivorous and others plant eaters, but all are dangerous. Underestimate them at your own risk.

Strategy and Multiplayer Mayhem
Although the real attention grabber in Turok are the dinosaurs, the most challenging combat in the game is essentially human on human. In these clashes the dinos serve as very dangerous obstacles. Even so, it’s best not to go dino crazy, so the best players should not only come to coexist with the ‘terrible lizards’ of this planet, but find a use for them. Through a combination of tactics players will learn how to use the single-minded feeding instinct of the dinosaurs against their human enemies, both real and AI. But be cautious. Your human opponents know the rules of engagement as well as you do and may very well use your own tactics against you.

Regarding game modes, in addition to a single player mode utilizing engaging cinematic flashbacks and in-game interactions with non-playable characters to reveal the path that has brought Turok to the jungles of this alien world, players will also enjoy several raging online multiplayer modes. Including everything from four-player co-op play to 16 player matches in deathmatch and capture the flag modes, these online frag-fests are best enjoyed by spreading the action across the game’s seven in-game maps. Filled with a variety of terrain ranging from high exposed routes, to low lying paths and even lava covered volcano slopes, these maps and possible additional downloadable content, should add extensive hours of gameplay.

Weapons – Quiet and Not So Quiet Kills
True to its RPG roots Turok comes loaded with a large arsenal of weapons, but the real fun of this selection is its variety. Easily accessible from your controller’s D-Pad, available weapons are both low tech and modern, and range from the basic, but quite deadly survival knife and compound bow, all the way up to standard FPS favorites like chain guns, shotguns, duel-wield pistols and a rocket launcher. Learning to use all these at the proper time is also crucial. Beyond the addiction of taking down an enemy with nothing but a cold piece of steel, silence on the battlefield can be priceless, especially when there are raptors about that will come running at the slightest sound. But on the other hand a rocket launcher does come in handy in a pinch.

In the end whether it’s taking on the game’s larger than life fauna or its unabashed old-school shooter roots, Turok is a sure bet to deliver for gamers yearning to get back to the good old days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Turok is back, for better or worse February 5, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Remember Turok: Dinosaur Hunter? One of the original launch titles way back when for the Nintendo 64, Turok enjoyed a solid series of FPS' over the next few years, and then just vanished (mainly thanks to then publisher Acclaim going under). Well, Turok is back in action and in familiar settings, as he takes on baddies, mutants, and of course, dinosaurs. The game gets off to a great start as you are fully engulfed in Turok's dangerous environments, but sadly it doesn't take too long to see just what all Turok has to offer. The redundant enemies, areas, and an overall feeling of the linear are fully on display with Turok, which offers little in the way of surprises after you first put some time into the game. Graphically speaking, Turok gets the job done, but you'll play far better looking FPS' on the XBox 360, and the texture glitches don't help the cause here either. Flaws aside, Turok has a fair share of good points as well: the game's musical score is fantastic, there is a very nice assortment of weapons and are implemented quite well, the dinos look and sound good, and co-op and multiplayer options are solid. All in all, you'll certainly play better FPS', but for what it's worth, Turok is a fun, albeit flawed, shooter that is better than the sum of its parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Detailed Review of Turok February 18, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing Turok since its initial launch on the N64 to its evolution to the PS2 and X-Box. I was rather upset when the game just disappeared when Acclaim went under. Let me tell you, when I first heard of this new Turok coming out I was even more excited than I was when Halo 3 was released. I waited and watched for this game as its launch date approached nearer and nearer and the moment it was released to the public I purchased it, and I was happy with what I saw.

Graphics: Although they were not the best graphics I've ever seen they were still very beautiful to look at. It seemed that the game designers concentrated more on the characters than on the background, a fatal flaw for most games, but I found that I did not mind as the gameplay was extremely intense. The backgrounds of the game, while extremely visually appealing, are very similar in nature. As you progress through the game you will only come across green, brown, yellow, yellowish-brownish-green, gray, blue, and grayish blue. Each background area is beautiful, but they are all essentialy the same. Now we reach the dinosaurs, the true stars of this game. Each dinosaur was created with such painstaking detail that it almost hurts me when I realize that I must kill them. Something that I really liked was the appearcne of blood on the dinos. The more you shoot them, the more blood paints their skin.
Graphics Overview: The dinos are amazingly done, the humans were well done but could have been better, and the backgrounds are very beautiful but repetitive. 4/5

Sound: In the jungle you can't always see what's stalking you, so you have to open your ears and listen lest you find yourself pinned to the ground with fanged jaws closing around your neck. The sound is very well done in this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars I actually dig the game... February 10, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Compared to top-notch FPSs like Halo and Bioshock, Turok doesn't measure up. However, if you take Turok for what it is, it's, in my opinion, a good game.

Gameplay could be better but it's at least satisfactory. Expect to die fairly frequently but Turok is not a run-and-gun game; you have to plan your attack (which is why you have stealth weapons like the bow and knife). The dual-wielding of almost every weapon helps in the harder parts. Personally, I like my enemies to be a little hard to kill, no one or two-shot kills. Turok delivers this (sometimes a bit over-the-top, like when you're fighting several enemies at once). Once again, Turok doesn't compare to top-tier games like Halo, but it's pretty high second-tier. Once you get the gameplay down it's exciting and action-packed.

The graphics and storyline impressed me (and I'm used to graphics-heavy games like Gears of War). The voice acting is great without exception and the visuals for the most part are really good.

After reading mixed reviews about Turok, I rented it and had a blast. I'll be buying it as soon as I can to continue the carnage, hah.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed November 21, 2009
By Dimich
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I am deeply disappointed with this game. I have played all Turok games in the past and was interested in this one. The game started very well - interesting environments, cool weapons, a very innovative "button-reaction-time" way to kill dinosaurs with a knife. I said "Whoa! I'm gonna like this game!"

UNFORTUNATELY. Towards the end of the first third of the game, it became insanely difficult. And, trust me, I am no stranger to difficulties - I beat Ninja Gaiden, beat the final boss in Gears of War (ALONE, may I add). But this one just became... unfairly difficult - there were stages were there were snipers and rocket launchers up front and, as you try to get a better position and aim, vicious dinosaurs would start ripping you apart from the back.

The game uses the "Call of Duty" health system; however, your health runs out in seconds. Even enemies with simple handguns shooting you from five hundred feet away, would do the same damage as if they were shooting you at point blank range. There were cases where I would finally find the hiding point behind the rock, and I still got killed RIGHT THROUGH THE ROCK. So you die, and you die, and you die, and you die, and you die, and you die... well, you get the picture.

If I don't like a game, I usually put it away for good. This one pissed me off so badly, that I went and sold it for a fraction of its cost - just to get some of my money back.

Shame. The game had a very good potential which, alas, wasn't realized.
