I don't think 2 hours of gameplay is enough to justify sending a game back because it is lame. As for the graphics, I find it hard to believe they are all that bad.

Turok Xbox pictures...perhaps you thought you got Turok but picked up Kabuki Warriors? The graphics for Turok look great!

The folks at ign have had bad things to say about this game. Read the mail sections of the cube site.

I believe there is a chance that it will suck. I'll try it and see for myself. Don't get so angry.

I went to the mailbag on cube.ign.com but couldn't find anything about Turok. Am I looking in the right space?

Exactly why I think you are a troll. You don't give any supporting arguments to your claim that the game sucks, how bout some concrete examples. The fact thay all you have to say is that gameplay and graphics are lame does not make your case very credible.

Radar, don't listen to him. He is just a pathetic kid who wants attention.

Ehhh. Not too impressed with the game. The control scheme is similar to Halo, which was a plus, but Halo this is NOT! The control options are limited (there's no "look sensitivity"), and so far, the enemy AI is incredibly UN-intelligent. A raptor was stuck running in place with his head in a wall, and the alligators look like cartoonish synchronized swimmers.
The early levels seem to be very-very forgiving. There are numerous health packs -- far too many, and the enemy attack does very little damage. Perhaps the first few levels are "training?"
I'm currently at the first flying level and turned it off after my third fly-into-a-wall/ground/column-lack-of-control-death.
Obviously I was excited about the next BIG FPS for Xbox -- but so far, *SO FAR*, I'm disappointed.
I'll give it some time -- perhaps the later levels will be more exciting.
Oh -- and the graphics DO NOT look like next gen to me.
Here's hoping that it gets better.

Jesus 3 posts about a game that fansboys flame people for saying bad things about. Your Turok fans are really beginning to **** me off. What the hell is wrong with you...calling a dude a troll becuase he dosn't like the game....You all are really pathetic. Just from the movies and Pics I can already tell this game isn't a awsome title! Instead of calling names why don't you just start to realize that this game might not be that great! Gasp....I know its a hard concept to grab!

Shaggy, calm down and watch out with the generalizations. I don't think anyone here minds criticism about a game.

A simple post of "This game is lame" or "Graphics = N64" just don't cut it.

I've criticised many Xbox games in the post and have not been flamed. But I back up my criticism with specific examples and description.

I'll play it tonight and judge for myself.

I'm picking it up at Gamestop later, I'll want to see if I will like it as much as the original. Can't wait for another MP FPS much longer..... :(

I am not trying to criticize anyone in particular, it just seems that some people are the first to throw stones w/o even knowing what is going on! They are just so hyped up that the thought of someone not liking the game they have been waiting so long for sucks that they must result in bashing them...to all no offence!

Shaggy, not to come the forefront in this argument...I just want to make it clear that kevgt2000 has been reaming this game all day on this board with quick and meaningless comments that are negative and blatant.

If it wasn't so blatant, I don't think others would be so upset. I finally found a post of his that explained his distaste in this game... otherwise all he has been doing is showing his disdain for this game, which has the street date of the 1st (so its suspect), and making comparissons that just don't seem to realistic according to the screen shots and movies we have seen of this game.

Yeah people hyping and people hating games is a pain because it puts a damper on personal views of what is to come... but this just seemed a little too on purpose and filled with too much spite to seem like a valid point. If he would have just posted his review in a thread that would have been fine...but instead he multi posted in his own thread over and over that this game is garbage, it sucks, it looks like N64, etc...

So who knows, maybe it does suck. But I'm certainly not going to take his word for it because of how he presented it.

I understand yer frustration, but this flame isn't all that far fetched.

Just look at Acclaim's track record. THEY SUCK ASS!!! Because someone in the forum is trying to save us money by saying the game isn't good doesn't mean he should be called names. He has the game. We don't! I hate Acc-lame. They can shove Turok up their ass! Should we hype up Quarterback Club as well??? Everyone that is complaining has this lame ass , sorry excuse of a game on reserve. I'll MAYBE rent it first, but I know (as I'm sure all of you know) that Unreal and other FPS's are coming out, and Acclaim isn't going to invest alot of money in Turok. That's like them investing alot of money in QBC with Madden, 2K3 and Fever on the market. Useless:rolleyes:
