This game sucks...
 
ok i enjoy playing the old turoks but this one just isnt good. the multipler is crap and so is the campian not a good game overall any1 else agree. i really regret buying it.

i havent played it yet, when a new game that i'm unsure of comes out, like turok, i wait a few weeks and check user reviews of games.

The field of view is horrible. My pet hate is when you knife a dino you end up looking away from your original destination. It can be very disorientating.

NEO CRIMS0N 02-15-2008 07:09 PM

You people who have problems with multiplayer obviously dont have many friends because I have 6 friends with the game and its a laughing riot when we all play together. Knife kills, rpg, sticky, even a chain turrent or two, and a dino/bug pinning down an oppenent right when they are about to take you out only to get killed by an opportunistic you is very grattifying. Campaign could have been so much better, but the 4 player co-op makes up for it. There is definately room for improovement but thats what updates and downloadable content is all about. Oh, and all of you who rely on review trolls should seriously consider renting a game you arent sure about to see if you like it or not HANDS ON. Word of mouth is unreliable, just like people and their tastes in games.

i've only played the DEMO, but i was VERY disapointed...
i was looking forward to this game but hated the demo... it bored me to be honest
there hasn't been a good turok since turok 2 on the n64

Jordan7182002 02-15-2008 07:59 PM

2 thumbs waaaaaaaaaay down. Rented it and will take it back the same day.

allekpastrana 02-15-2008 08:19 PM

i am going 2 try this one b4 i buy...thanks guys 4 the heads up

Surgeon_Sniper 02-16-2008 03:54 AM

I agree-- I rented it first and was WAY glad I did. I beat the campaign and co-ops and took it back. It only took a couple of days.

RuggersAssassin 02-17-2008 03:25 AM

The demo was horrible i agree but i own the game and it is soooo good.

SouP x360a 02-17-2008 04:31 AM

You guys... I was once like you....

I LOVE this game.

When I first started playing, i hated it. THe campaign was hard and multiplayer blew. But I kept playing and I got GOOD. Whenever I play multiplayer I destroy the enemy teams and campaign is a breeze now. Whenever knife whores run at me I blast away there face with a expertly aimed shotty blast. Trust me, this is a crazy game, just stop suckin

Big Papa 07 02-17-2008 05:11 AM

Well, this is my first time ever playing turok, and I for one can see how many people would hate the game. But the game really has a lot of cool things to offer as well. The knife kills in campaign are amazing to watch, not so much the human ones, but the raptor ones are really cool... I wish there were a few more different ones though. The graphics are good and everything, but I hate how you slow down to a crawl if you are taking damage. Thats really dumb, like, if I'm running for cover and getting hit, its almost a sure-death. I also hate the flying bugs that shoot the green poison out at you, they don't make a lot of sense to me being in this game and are just really annoying rather than a fun and difficult challenge.

I haven't played multiplayer yet, but being the achievement whore that I am, I am disappointed with the choice to include so many online achievements. I will have to get on soon and find out if I like it or not though.

Oh, and I also like using the bow and pinning enemies to walls and the such, its a cool thing to see a lifeless body "standing" up against a wall.

shoutemup92 02-17-2008 05:33 AM

how does this game suck?!?!? this game is freakin amazing once the multiplayer is fixed its is going to be even better! The only thing that sucks is the aiming. But other wise its awesome!

RuggersAssassin 02-17-2008 10:41 PM

Once again this game owns all!!!

x BruteZ x 02-17-2008 10:43 PM

Ive played it at my mates and i have to say i wouldnt buy it and in my opinion the turok on the original xbox was a far better game.

laundryman 02-18-2008 03:18 AM

I rented tonight and I am glad. Odds are that I will finish the game, milk as many achievements out of it as possible, and never rent it again

iGoTiT4FrEe 02-18-2008 08:51 AM

yeah i agree this game blows ..... The single player was way easy and the multiplayer sucks :ass soooo bad because of the lag, 90% of the games you get into are unplayable.The search function is one of the worst iv ever seen in a game and I really wish i hadnt traded in the 3 games for it. I highly doubt the patch that is coming will fix it very much.To those that say the game is excellent blah blah ,im guessing you get host on most of your games or the host is close and havent had many laggy games at all.90% of the games im in have that network connection icon flashing up on the top of the screen in almost every game and makes trying to get a win or achievements terrible:rant:

Kai Tetley 02-18-2008 12:19 PM

Worst lag ever. Seriously!!! People warped in and out of my field of view. Even communications was lagged. I rarely say this about a game, but it just sucks all the fun out of playing. I can over look all the faults in 'Raibow Six:Vegas', but this game is just awfull.

MapleMire 02-18-2008 05:11 PM

does this game real suck that bad, i was planning on buying but some of you just change my thoughts, is the campaign good?

DAUNTEDFLETTY 02-18-2008 05:58 PM

as a collector of the steel tins and a shooter :uzi:fan i will be gettin this game crap or not so when i do i will post a review :uzi::uzi::uzi:

DAUNTEDFLETTY 02-20-2008 07:29 AM

played
 
right i played this game last night for the first time and 20 mins into it i thort what a load of dump the ai team mate kept saying the same thing over 4 times - (IF YOU FALL BEHIND YOU WILL BE LEFT BEHIND) that bugged me the graphics are a bit crap in places i also killed a guy and he just fell through the ground. apart from all that it did start to get interesting and the multiplayer is not to bad.:uzi::uzi::uzi:

CJ810 02-26-2008 11:57 PM

Good game, Not GOW or Halo but respectible
 
I think it's a good game. I think it's definitely a hard game. I'm playing it on hard right now, and some of the battles are very difficult (I'm on Mother Superior). Having to watch for both dinos and enemy soldiers is hair-raising. (I can't speak to MP because my internet is down right now)

The first battle with snipers was really difficult (don't know if there are more than one, I haven't finished it yet). Their aim is evil and the gun is really powerful. One hit can kill you. It does make a difference whether you try to take the compound from the left or right. I got my butt handed to me every time I ran to the left. When I went right it went much better.

The friendly ai dialogue can be annoying, as someone pointed out, for it's repetitiveness as well as for the cheesy foreign accents. The knife kill animation on the dinos sometimes fails to activate resulting in getting killed. That can be a major pain in the neck, but is ignorable since it doesn't happen that often.

The bow and arrow exceeds the Torque Bow in GOW in my opinion, especially once you get the exploding arrows. It's significantly easier to use than the Torque Bow.

I think it deserved a higher rating than the 7.0 Game Informer gave it. Probably an 8, but no more than 8.25. That would probably be too generous. If you're uncertain about buying it wait a month or two and buy it used. I don't think it's going to stay at $55 for long since the reviews are somewhat mixed.

i do the same thing, that is y i didnt buy that game. i usually go on previews and wut is said about the games by the critics

Jackel2556 02-27-2008 12:14 AM

for people judging the game because the demo, Rent it, this game is alot better then the demo I also hated the demo but played it at my friends house and loved it so i got it

gog 02-27-2008 05:16 AM

i pretty much agree - just trying the game out - and got it for 3 days - im just a few mishes into it and it seems to be completely terrible so far - the whole RT prompt is unresponsive, im standing next to a dino unnoticed and i cant do anything -same as soldiers - but i have alot of grips with this game, - i do miss the old turok style of game- havent tried mp yet not that i expect too much from it -
i plan on boosting tomorrow to get as many achievs out of this steaming pile before i move on to a better game

Orange and Blue 02-27-2008 07:04 PM

I second gog calling this game a steaming pile, the campaign is horrible and I was unfortunate enough to try the multiplayer last night. ** Note, anyone who complains about lag regularly in multiplayer games, please dont play this game as nobody wants to hear about it, seriously**

Thank god for Gamefly when games like this come out.................

The RT prompt is unresponsive? You aren't hitting it at the right time. I've never had this problem and I've never seen someone complain about that on this forum.

hellview 04-17-2008 09:05 PM

what is it with people moaning about lag all the time, i have never had a laggy match. maybe you guys should a better connection. ;)

bigquackster 03-07-2009 03:49 PM

i like the game enough but the boss fights are just terrible

Troyan 03-13-2009 10:19 PM

Isn't too bad at all... i prefer this game, is better than Prey, for example...

TONY PWN 03-14-2009 10:54 PM

This one just doesn't compare to the N64 days, it's a cheap game that could kill an afternoon
