Question Is this game worth getting?

Is this game worth getting? I'm just wondering if i should buy it. I saw a thread about how it kicks ass and another one how it sucks. So which one do you think?

An average game. Just rent it first before cashing it in.

Got to be worth a purchase. I'm loving this game, but i am a huge fan of the FPS genre. This game gets quite intense at times.

I don't have it but have played it...what I have played....its rediculous (ly) awesome.....I mean jumping onto the backs of a crazy ass raptors with six inch teeth.... and then stabbing it jaw 5 times rapidly until it bleeds to death crying/screeching for mercy while dodging bullets from bad guys....what could be better??

Definately worth a rent!!

Especially now that the multiplayer patch is in effect, the matches are easier to find and match up with.

The game is at least worth a rental, but judge it on your own merits. If you enjoy it, buy it and support Propaganda, if not, hey, at least you tried it for yourself.

I can't for any reason recommend anyone buying this game. The campaign is worth a play-through which you can do with a weekend rental.

As for this magical fix that everyone's expecting to save multi-player, sorry I don't see it happening. Most people have already gone back to Halo 3 or COD 4 or gearing up for RS:V 2. The matchmaking is terrible, the lag is horrible and I can't believe that anyone would prefer a 6v6 knife fight to any of the other established shooters out there.

Seriously though, unless Harry Potter and Yoda are working on this patch, this game is worth a rental at best.

Nah, fortunately I've got my 1000 pts and I'm not looking back. I am however looking forward to picking up Frontlines tomorrow. Killing campers with drones is waaaaaay more satisfying and enjoyable.

For sure rent it because single player is quite fun. However as for buying it? I would wait for this alleged multiplayer patch to come out because for all we know it could not fix any of the issues. As the multiplayer stands right now, totally not worth it when you can get better games for the same price.

The Multiplayer experience is intense and really fun...but the story just sucks badly, most of the time you'll find yourself drowned in tedious battles and boring stuff...

I played the demo before the game was released and that's as much turok as I needed tyvm. The gameplay was clunky, the controls overly difficult to intuit. Just in the 10 or 15 min demo I got sick of the repetition of encounters... dodge raptors... kill bad guys... dodge more raptors. A game based on killing dinosaurs shouldn't get boring... but somehow they managed it anyway. The story seems trite, as if they struggled to come up with a reason or excuse to make this iteration of turok in the first place. I might spend money renting it, but would probably just borrow it from a friend that bought it and wound up not playing it... or better yet just keep the atrocious achievement list off my gamertag entirely.

it's a good fps, the use of dinosaurs to add a 3rd side to fight is fun, and stabbing them in the head repeatedly never gets old

This game will not blow your mind, nor does it reinvent the genre... but it doesn't try to, either. Turok is a straight forward shooter with pockets of intense gunfights and CQB. It also has suspenseful moments, I sometimes found myself a bit nervous to walk around a corner or drop into a hole. The multiplayer patch that everyone is talking about must be out, because I had no issues at all with MP. I also had no issues with lag while I was online. Overall, I would give Turok a 7 - 7.5/10 It's a fun game
