Question Bow: Do you like it?

I just finished a game where i used purely the Bow and Knife for 'Primitive Weapons' obviously. I usually ignore the Bow and despise getting killed by it. But after getting several kills with it, it feels great! Anyone else agree?

I love the bow. I just love the feeling of impaling someone with an arrow, or sticking them to the wall. I even like to go up to the dead bodies and see where I hit them with the arrow. A little morbid, I know.

I personally think the Bow sucks and never use it. Way too hard to aim with it, dual wielded machien guns are much easier to kill with

Besides getting the two achievements, I never bother to use it. Unlike what is being told, the bow actually alerts some enemies so it doesn't make it any easier from gun blazing with automatic weapons that can keep them laying dead sooner.

But I would say it is interesting to have primitive weapons at our disposal. The best moments using a bow is to pin enemies below a staircase and see them pinned on the wall far above.

One downside is that it has scarce ammo (perhaps I didn't come across them) so it only plays a minor role in the game.

the bow is really good, and if u know how to use it right, u can go through the campaign just bowing ppl left and right.

The Bow in this game i thought it was amazing. It reminded me of the Torque Bow from Gears Of War which i was amazing at using that as well

I prefer weapons because the bow isn't good unless you use it as a sniper. However, the lag that is in EVERY game causes me to miss quite alot. I feel really awesome getting the primal weapons achievement, but if the controls were a bit better, i'd love the bow.

I do enjoy using it. It's a great long range weapon too, much better than using a gun. I wish they had a playlist where you could only use the Bow and no knife's.

Loved the game. The knife and the bow were the best weapons in this Turok as they were in the N64 games.
