4.0 out of 5 stars Turok - Review, 14 Feb 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Turok (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I am a dedicated FPS fan, already have COD4, Orange Box, Halo 3, Gears, Bioshock etc.. and to be honest I wasn't expecting much from Turok (altho I was a big fan of it on N64) so I didn't pay full price for it, I traded in a few older games... got home and started the game my first impressions weren't all that great, but as I have played through the game I have been pleasantly surprised. First of all - the graphics, I can't understand anyone who says they are sub standard, the graphics are excellent, possibly the best jungle environments seen in a game yet, yes the character models are very gears like, but that so far is my only negative. Wait till you see the t-rex stomping through the jungle and ripping enemy soldiers apart... fantastic. Yes there are probably only 3 enemy soldier models - but that doesn't detract from the game (look at the combine in Halflife 2 - they all look the same!).... besides the developers obviously made the decision to concentrate on the dinosaur models which they got spot on...Next up - Gameplay... as I am still playing through the game I can only comment on what I have seen so far, and so far it's been great. Enemy AI is good enough, no major glitches yet, weapons feel powerful and there seems to be a good selection, dual wielding works well. Dinosaurs AI is great, getting stalked by raptors through long grass is nail biting stuff. The bow and the knife just polish things off, and is very satisfying pinning an enemy soldier to a wall with an arrow from afar. Replay value to be found here, as in most situations you can just go in all guns blazing and unload your ammo on the enemy or you can go stealth hunting and take them out with the bow and knife, both of which work well, but will give you two different playing experiences. Can't comment on multi-player as I don't have Live. But if your an FPS fan, who's already played through COD4, Gears, Halo etc and are looking for something a little different then I can strongly recommend this.
