the campaign was short (took me 8 hrs.)but extreamly fun,i liked the variety of human and dino enemy's.online play is addicting and a nice break from halo type shooters.overall a great game thats definitely worth a rent.

Talk about difficult! I started playing on the "normal" setting and within two hours I was ready to throw my controller. Honestly, the easiest setting in this game is like playing heroic on Halo 3. Not legendary, heroic. This wouldn't be so bad except that the checkpoints can seem hours apart at times and they are always the hardest just before you reach the next one. Basically, if you are really good at first person shooters you will like this game. But if your like me and you have trouble making it through halo on Normal this game may be too difficult to find any pleasure in. Additionally, there is nothing really new to find in this title as far as first person shooters go. You get a basic arsenal that includes SMGs, pistols, shotguns and the like. The only thing that is kind of unique is the knife kills which can be very useful against the dinosaurs that take 10-12 rounds from the smg to take down. Knife kills are always one hit kills. So why the high rating? Because structurally the game is very sound. Good graphics. Good controls. Good gameplay. Just a little to hard for me to really enjoy.
Let me start first by saying Turok is not technilogical master piece. What it is however is a blast. If you take the time and give it a chance you will have fun and people forget that's why we play games, to have fun. Turok can be frustrating on the harder difficulty, but if you are like me and have played alot of FPS then it's nothing you cant handle. In my opinoin this game succeded in what it tried to do and thats bring Turok back as a franchise. No doubt you should give this a try and it does have 4 player co-op and a multitude of online game modes. So I hope this has been helpful and I'll see you on line Gamertag OO DESTRO.
PS Spell check wasn't working so SRRY for my grammer.
