my understanding is that the first two levels of the game are a bit sparse in terms of monsters because they are more the tutorial levels of the game, however the graphics look great and the native creatures look fantastic. If the game really sucks I'll let you know. I'm picking it up today and will be playing it tonight after I get home...

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.

I have the game now. There is look sensitivity. I don't know what that person is talking about. You can control horizontal and vertical sensitivity separately. You can invert look, customize every button and function in fact.

I'm not putting stock into this review. Sorry.

Well, I just got home with my copy of Turok and I hate to admit, but Im really not all that impressed with the game.
It's a rental at best unless you are a die hard Turok fan.
Now these are just early impressions of the game so bear with me.

Graphics: The graphics are nice. Nothing really special about them. It really reminds me of playing the original version of Turok on the Nintendo graphically speaking. The environments so far are really nice looking but not as open and broad as you would imagine from the commercials. Each environment is pretty linear. You can only go so far. Rating-6.5

Sound: The sound is a plus in Turok. You can hear the environments around you and everything going on. The music fits nicely with the game. Rating-8

Control: The control is pretty weak. It's almost like you are dragging or something. The control is per usual, move with the left analog and aim with the right. Trying to kill all the creatures that attack is really lame. You can actually aim at each one if there is a group attacking you. There is an auto-aim feature, which I have turned on, but it really doesn't seem to do anything. I have yet to been able to auto-aim at a creature yet. I may be doing something wrong, but I checked and double checked and still nothing. Rating-5

Gameplay: The game is typical Turok. There is a very nice multiplayer feature in which you can fight each other, first to take flag, first kill, etc. etc. Other than the multiplayer to play with friends, there is really nothing special about this game. Rating-6

Overall-6.5

Again, these are early impressions and are subject to change, but I would strongly recommend a rental of Turok before you shell out the dough on this game. It seems Acclaim really pushed the game with media, commercials, and what not before anyone could give a review on it so as not to diminish sells.

Sounds like the turok fanboys are out on a warpath. I guess a man is no longer is allowed to have a opinion anymore. I have never played the Turok series so I have no bias towards this game, but from the looks of the graphics alone it looks pretty weak! Granted I will give it a try before posting a review but it sure looks like a below par Xbox game! So all of you bashers, that have to defend there investment and can not give a honest non bias review need to shut the fuk up! I can't wait for those fanboy reviews of "Turok not only the best game in the world. I can also use the maual to catch my flying spludge. I give it a 11/10!".

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:eek:

A color manual doesn't impress me. I think they went thin on the manual to keep a lot of surprises for you in the game. But we'll see. I do like that they made the look sensitivity separated into horizontal and vertical adjustments. Very cool!

Whoa, settle down boys. Everybody is entitled to their opinion on games. Who cares if they don't type well? Yes, sometimes it's frustrating to read, but you know what he's saying, or you wouldn't have responded. Take it witha grain of salt. Turok will get mixed reviews, like EVERY game does. I've read reviews that scrapped Halo....and we all thought everybody loved Halo....but not everybody did. I was never impressed with what I saw of Turok pre-release, but the magazines and websites were all caught up in the hype web. Hype last about 3 days after a game hits the shelves....then it goes on it's own merits, and web reviews!

I want a rematch! ;)

Wow kevgt2000 you're an idiot, and if you're trying to get people to not buy the game you've done the opposite. I want to buy this game now because of you. You're the only loser that gave it a lame review and didn't have any reasons... Btw did you say I'm returning it and I got it from EB enough?

I don't listen to 6yr olds when they try to review the game, is it too violent for you kevgt2000? I suggest Mario Sunshine for GC..

Anyway I don't carei f the levels are open or not, look at the levels in Halo, they looked open, but really weren't.

Xracer
08-29-2002, 08:51 PM
okay been playing for about an hour
and no way are these graphics like the N64,, there a nice lead in to the game movie like .
The enviroments are very interactive
there is vibration for when you take damage
There are adjustments for vert and horizontal

you are thrown right into the game without really knowing what to do

right now im a flying level and it pretty bad ass:)

i'll have more first impression's when i get more time in

I ahve the game & I like it so far. Its not Halo but I wasn't expecting a Halo. I been a fan of Turok since the first game but the last one suck. Evolution is a great game, the first 2 level there not much action going but it picks up in Chapter 3. And the weapon are just great. It beats Halo in weapons.

If you were a fan of the previous Turok then I suggest you buy it because you'll luv this version. if you weren't a Turok fan then give it a rental & play a few Chapter before judging the game.

kevgt2000, I think the problem people are having with your post is not because of your opinion but you sound like you trying to convince people from not buying it.

I Have Gotten 3 Turned In For Store Credit at My Shop & The Game Only Came Out Yeaterday... Definetly A Bad Sign!

judging after a few hours of playing it's a keeper for me
Feels very similar overall to the original Turok. The graphics are on par. Is it doing the xbox justice? probadly not .Very active enviroments ,, dino crap ,, buzzing flies around dead carcasses. falling trees ,,Cool water effects. Head shots kill in one hit. Kind of long blood animation but sweet. Still a very bloody game . I shot one guy he dropped his gun ,, begged for forgiveness then i wacked him with my club. hehehe
true to the orginal there is some jumping that has to be done .
it picks up in play quite a bit during the flying in chapter 2. then in chapter 3 it starts to get diffcult, searching for the right weapon is a bit of a pain arse yes there is a flame thrower!!nice sniper mode added to the pistol so far that's been my fav part.
plus many more weapons to come

i havent tried any mulitplayer yet ,, but there is a flying mode along with all the standard stuff

If your a turok fan i'd list it as a must buy otherwise rent it and check it out . I'll post a review after some more game time

Played it 3 hours tonight and finished the first two chapters. I would agree with the gist of Xracer's description. Had a few cool moments so far...sniping a guard with the Tek Bow using poison arrows and watching him kneel down and vomit twice before dying. I love sniping in a FPS. The graphics are awesome and mediocre at the same time. Controls are similar to Halo but a notch less tight and responsive. Jumping can get frustrating. I've seen a few minor glitches but nothing that breaks the game. If Halo is a 10 and Agent Under Fire is a 6 as Xbox FPS then this is a solid 8. I'll have to play some Multi-player with friends to see if it has long term value.

The ****ing game sucks. Now I'm getting slammed for posting cheats for the stupid game. I just posted the cheats so everyone who owns the game can see that it doesn't get any better than what it is. Acc-LAME sucks. Like I said , why invest money in something like turok or QBC when we have Unreal and all the great football games like 2K3 and Madden . They would lose their asses if they did that. I knew the game would suck just like all their other games. **** them and **** Turok. I'd rather stroke my **** than play Turok

I bought the game today with much anticipation to get my "FPS Fix!."

..... :\ What a let down. I'm returning this ASAP!

Gameplay: Same as any Turok. The control is just like Halo, which is good. Other than that, everything is old. Same ***** we've seen since the first Turok. I swear, I think the first Turok for the N64 was better. Maybe because everything was so new back then, but now it's too much the same (N64 quality).

The graphics and sounds completely suck. The entire package seems "rushed" big time. The graphics have absolutely no detail. Sky, ground, rocks, plants and trees are so plain looking. The water also sucks for lack of better word. This game feels 5 years old and doesn't do anything for ALL game consoles.

I made myself stop playing the game just after 30 minutes into the game. I couldn't torture myself anymore.

Complete crap, no system link support.. Why bother? Please, save your money for something better.

You should read more closely before making general statements that in effect bash everyone in this thread. I responded about the game. I have refrained from any personal slams on kevgt2000 even though I disagree with his assessment of the game and in spite of the likelyhood that his comments are based on very little time actually playing the game.

As far as just reading and not replying which you suggest is what we should have done...maybe I have this whole gaming forum concept wrong. I thought this was intended to be a place to discuss / debate / disagree / describe / etc. the games we all play.

The X, I am only halfway through Chapter 4, but as a fellow Turok fan, I'm surprised that it does not seem like Turok to you. I played and loved Turok, Turok 2, and Rage Wars. I played and hated Turok 3. This one reminds me of a blend of 1 and 2 which is for me a good thing. What about it is so different from the Turok you remember?

The AI in the game is great, just wait until you are far in the campaign. They have great plans strategically. For example, today I was playing and I shot a guys arm off so he couldn't fire. He ran back about 10 feet, and kneeled down and begged for mercy. :p and then I ran over to kill him from behind a rock. All of a sudden I have 3 snipers on me, and the guy on his knees makes a laughing grunt then scurries into the bushes.

As for the controlling, you can adjust it on the options menu, including the look sensitivity. I thought it was waaaay too slow with the default controls.

Ok, this is just too funny...

I saw several preview movies and I thought some effects were done quite well...

But I dont see how you can say if the game dosent look good enough, then it's crap...

By the way, Enclace has way better textures than any other game out there, whoever said that Halo looked better...


Anyway, the only reason little kids like you whine and cry about games is because you either dont like them or you just suck at them. If all you look for is graphics, then you must suck because looking at pretty pictures is not getting you any kills, dumbass. Grow up already.
