Very disappointing. Graphics are adequate. Game play is mechanical with little option to choose your own path. No humanoid-lizard like creatures or interesting paths or puzzles. Same dinos time after time. There seems to be more human(?) mercenaries all over the game being dropped off by helicopter all the time. The only new aspect I enjoyed was when a dino closed in on Turok, you would have to do "God of War" button reactions to get the creature off or kill it. I look forward to a future Turok that is more aligned to the earlier humanoid-lizard creatures with a more diverse environment. The couple of Boss fights were unimpressive and not always intuitive how the designers forced you to defeat the boss. Worth a play if there's nothing else available. Even the bow had little benefit.
Once again Xbox has released another flawless shoot em game and Turok delivers! Awesome graphics, great story line, awesome weapons, fast paced action, love stealth moves. May be hated for this but so what it my review and my opinion, Turok is better than Bioshock and COD 4, but neck and neck with Assasins Creed because of the stealth moves-I love the stealth moves - A+! It's what makes or breaks a game and stealth moves put the icing on the cake for the game! I've only had the game for a couple days and just got through the facility and it was intense especially the elavator level. I also the the fact you have to watch your back on every level, dinos and other enemies try to attack you from behind. This game rocks! Would highly recommend renting or buying. I plan on buying this game!

If you are planning on acquiring this game, here's a list of stuff you should do instead: -Stick your head in a running cement mixer. -Ingest a box of razor blades. -Tell your girlfriend she could lose a few pounds. Any of these suggestions will be more fun than playing this, at best mediocre, mound of rubbish.
There are several grievances I take with this excrement on dvd: -I think the game play is sub-par, compared to recent games like Bioshock, Call of Duty 4, and Orange Box. -Melee attacks cause you to go into a kill cut scene every time, this by itself wouldn't be horrible, but you can get shot while in it. -Multiplayer is "not" fun. -I've seen better stories in remedial English class. -I don't like playing video games that make me want to destroy the disc and everything around it.
The only redeeming feature that stops this game from getting a lower score: -You get to Kill Dinosaurs with your bare hands. You become the reason for their extinction...Again...
Summary As you can probably gather I did not find that much fun with this game. But if you are a masochist you might like this game. If you are a gamer stay as far away as possible, in fact I suggest you play Portal again. If you haven't played Portal I inquire one thing, how was the cave you were living in?
