Good

A Stab in the Dark

Turok is satisfying on many levels, but sometimes becomes an exercise in futility. Stabbing a dinosaur, while extremely cool when done properly, requires exact timing and can be mistaken by passersby to be an ancient knife dance ritual. Spin, stab air, spin, stab air, spin, stab something else mistakenly. The close quarters of most of the game would probably benefit from a third-person perspective.
I have some advice for the developers of Turok, steal. The aiming works better on Call of Duty 4 and the weapon selection, while almost identical to Gears of War, is still lacking. Why can't I decide to use my knife when I get knocked down by a dino?
The graphics are darn good, but at the edge of the map or looking off a cliff, you can see the smudgy looking green "foliage" that surrounds you. Transversely, the dino kills, character models, and weapons look superb.
To say Turok is terrible would be a disservice, but to say its perfect would also be untrue. Turok is a solid, well-thought-out title that is definitely worth a gamefly rental. Whether or not its worth buying is up to the player.

pretty much the biggest disappointment in what use to be a good game. most of the weapons are pretty lame, there's more blood in the original N64 Turok, the dialog horrible, and what happened to our lovable Indian hero?? now your some lame bro that looks like he just came out of Quake 3. i'll give just about any game a chance but this is just a really poorly made wast of money... Sorry Turok :P

This review is really simple....Great campaign, but horrible multiplayer. In the multiplayer all everyone does is run around with a knife and stab people at super speeds...yes tons of fun, tons of fun. But I will not however totally bash this game because the campaign mode is extremely cool and should put a stop to Turok fans salavating mouths....sorry about the online!
