Turok: Evolution (PlayStation 2)

 

Previously exclusive to Nintendo platforms, the Turok series is branching out to the PlayStation 2 with the latest installment, Turok: Evolution. The newest entry in the Turok series brings back more of the rollicking first-person reptile blasting that...

Turok: Evolution

Turok: Evolution Xbox Review

 

Okay, let's start with the basics. Acclaim have taken a semi-classic franchise and attempted to elevate it to next-gen status. Turok: Evolution is a first person shoot-em up in the classic vein, i.e. it's linear, the puzzles are simple (when they're...

Halo-beater? Not likely.

The Armchair Empire - Playstation 2 (PS2) Reviews: Turok: Evolution

 

There's just something about the name Turok that makes me want to run through the open jungle shouting TOOOOORRRROOOOKKKKK!! I can't explain it, it's just one of those primal instincts – like my unnatural desire to roll...

Constant action FPS; Some inventive weapons; Flying missions RULE (although are freaking hard!); Probably the goriest FPS series on the market

Disturbingly linear game play, even for an FPS; Some absolutely horrible textures on some surroundings; Claustrophobic level design (can't venture very far away from path)

Turok: Evolution

 

Whatever glory this franchise had left will be hard to reclaim after this effort.

Predominantly tight gameplay; adequate multiplayer; some cool weapons

Poor graphics; nothing innovative; unpolished; atrocious load times

Turok: Evolution - ps2

 

From the moment I found my scope attachment for my Tek Bow and later my pistol, I seldom did any combat that wasn't looking through a lens or some sort. This was mainly due to the imprecise nature of the gamepad. In regular non-scope combat you are...

Turok: Evolution Review for the XBOX

 

ba·trach·o·pho·bi·a -- n.

Good graphics; Lots of critters; Environmental interaction; Cool dinosaurs

Game design from 8 years ago; No save game?!; Weak multiplayer; Irrational fear of reptiles

The total lack of plot and incongruous arcade elements were fine when I played Doom all those years ago, but have become disappointing since games like Half-Life and Halo proved that even shooters can have engrossing stories and realistic worlds....

Turok Evolution

 

Mediocre shooters come and go, but this series is on the brink of extinction.

Turok's story (or lack thereof) mode isn't the only option available, and the multiplayer mode is where this game is a keeper for the long haul. There are so many areas and options, you could play this game mainly on Multiplayer and you'd get your...

Product Specifications

As the last surviving members of the Saquin Nation make a desperate attempt to escape to the relative safety of Mexico, they are unaware that they have played into the hands of the bloodthirsty Captain Tobias Bruckner. Under orders to bring in Chief Grey Bear, the warrior-brave Tal'Set, and the remaining Saquin without bloodshed, Captain Bruckner reneges and springs a deadly ambush. Bruckner is a man possessed. Called "Red Snake" by the Native tribes of the Southwest, he has hunted the Saquin for years. The great Chief Grey Bear, one of the most brilliant and respected of the Native American Chiefs falls victim to a sniper's bullet, and Captain Bruckner orders the slaughter of the remaining Saquin people. As the bullets fly, Tal'Set and the remaining Saquin braves leap into battle, exacting a terrible toll on the Indian Hunters even as they are cut down one by one. Himself mortally wounded by Bruckner in the battle, Tal'Set cuts through the Cavalry troops and embraces Bruckner in a deadly melee. War club and Saber clash, and at the height of the battle, a cave-in sends Tal'Set and Bruckner tumbling into a mysterious underground cavern covered in ancient symbols and strange artifacts. Tal'Set is dying. Bleeding to death from a bullet wound to the liver. Desperate to avenge the death of his people, Tal'Set once again locks in mortal combat with Bruckner. As his blood spills onto the ground, an otherworldly reaction is triggered, and the entire chamber becomes a storm of light and electricity. A shot goes wild and strikes a powder keg that has tumbled into the chasm. The blast brings the roof of the cavern down as Tal'Set is blown through a mysterious portal and into a world the likes of which he has never dreamed. The Lost Land. Exhausted and dying, Tal'Set is brought back from the brink of death by the Mysterious Seer TarKeen. Tal'Set awakens with the memories of his dying people still fresh in his mind. Having been discovered by a group of refugee hunters, Tal'Set is taken to the fortress of the River People where the beautiful Mayana, under the watchful eye of the Great warrior Djunn and the "Wise Father", the leader of the River people, nurses him back to health. Once healed, Tal'Set embarks on a journey to discover the meaning of his presence in the Lost Land. Through a series of conversations and confrontations with TarKeen, Tal'Set learns that his presence in the Lost Land is not a coincidence, and that the death of his people was ordained so that he might embrace a higher purpose and become "Turok", the "Son of Stone", protector and savior. Confused, angry and alone, Tal'Set rejects TarKeen's story, refusing to accept what he has been told. As he battles with his own demons, Tal'Set becomes a reluctant participant in the brutal War that is raging in the Lost Land. Motivated by his feelings of isolation, Tal'Set agrees to help the people of the Lost Land battle for their lives against the Evil Lord Tyrannus, leader of the reptilian hordes. Bent on a "Holy Mission" to purify the Lost Land through slaughter and misery. What follows is an epic tale of victory, treachery, and betrayal as Tal'Set struggles to accept his place in this strange world.
