Ok so after stacks of critisism I got myself a copy of Turok. What do we have here? Well it resembles a mish-mash of old titles that hardcore gamers will recognise instantly, for example, the first Unreal title, Far Cry, Quake 4 etc. Still this is not a real bad thing as these games were all great in there hay day. Although herein lies one of the main problems with Turok. It feels as if it's affraid to try anythin new so has just polished up aspects of old games giving it the feel of being a bit lazy.
This aside, there a many other areas were Turok shines! Weapons, ok we have the bog standard line up that every FPS falls back on but here your given the combat knife, no it isn't the same as all the rest! Without any doubt I shall say you will find yourself equiped with this weapon for over two thirds of the game, not because the other choices suck but the knife is such great fun to use! Voice acting is also very good, some well known names in the cast, suck as Timothy Olyphant and Ron Pearlman. Game length also is very good, expect to be fighting it out with dino's and bad guys for at least 10 to 12 hours on the intermediate setting and a great deal longer on harder modes!
In all, Turok is half of the game it should've been, by no means is it bad, it shows you some great stuff but lets itself down by being very predictable. I got my copy for £25 and was happy with what I got for the price. If you get the opportunity then go for it as there is a lot of fun to be had here but Turok is simply nowhere near the mammoths of COD4, Bioshock or Gears. A shame as a bit more work would've made this go a whole lot further.
