Worth The Purchase?

Is this game worth the purchase or would it be more wallet friendly to just rent this game? Thanks.

Rent. There're tonnes of flaws besides knifing dinosaurs. MP isn't that good. Most of the time there is no people playing.

No thanks. If you want more proof, it's easy. Note there isn't an achievement guide for Turok? This's one big feature of unpopular games. When somebody suggests you buy this game, he's just a blind Turok seires fanboy.

If anyone is still even wondering if this game is decent or not, Best Buy is selling it for only $10 this week. Along with Ninja Gaiden II, MLB 2K8, and Facebreaker.

I'm so pissed now that I bought this game. I played it at my friends house once, and thought it was good. I'll probably never get all the achievements on this piece of crap.

Played the first level or two, didn't like it that much. Multiplayer is dead like others have said, so don't even rent it, LEAVE THIS ONE ON THE SHELF!

I'd have to disagree and it sounds like a majority of others would too. I borrowed it from a friend back when it first came out and hated every moment of it. The only reason I'm looking to play it again is to up my achievement count; I'm holding off on a $20 purchase in hopes of renting it for less than half the price.

I bought this game for $15 used the other day and got all the SP achievements.

The SP is pretty good to me. The checkpoint system is fucking retarded and can get really frustrating in some places on Inhuman, but other than that it was a good experience.

I haven't played MP because no one plays the game anymore...

Despite what everyone els says about this game, I actually really like it. It's fun to sneak up on an enemy soldier and stab them in the face, and it's even better sniping them from half a map away with a bow and arrow.
Havn't tryed multiplayer, but single players holds good ground in my book.

Definitite rental unless the price tag is less than $7. Many of the mechanics you must manipulate for achievements are blatantly glitched and must be babied in just the right way for the achievement to pop, most notably "Pin 50 Soldiers with Arrows" and "Lure 5 Dinos to dine on Enemy Soldiers" (Only raptors and dilos count, nothing else), the multiplayer achievements are almost impossible to get without boosting, simply because there are very few people who play this game, and most of those who play regularly are either very good or very good at abusing the game's known glitches.

I've actually had nothing but good times with this game. The campaign was good and I liked the boss fights ( except for that fucking octopus thing ). All the MP games I played were lag-free, and that's probably because no one plays the damn game anymore. xD

its okay, but dont count on getting many achievements unless your planning on boosting since most are mp

and knifing is annoying, yet its is oddly enjoyable where the whole MP match you run around each other in circles trying to knife...played it again when I was bored and there were about 12 total paople playing it I would say and that was months ago...probably even more of a graveyard now

this may be the lamest game ever. played for a few hours, rarely after that, then it became a dust gathering green box.

And if you have an Edge card - $4.50 - just picked it up and well worth that price.

On a whim - I tried getting a multiplayer match and actually found someone in a player match and got an achievement without boosting playing a 2-player deathmatch game (got "Retribution").

Yeah - can't believe they actually thought so much of their MP that they put most of the achievements there (or maybe that was the only way they could get anyone to play the MP). The campaign is not bad for the $4.50 I paid for the game. The checkpoints are annoying - though not as annoying as the first Army of Two - but it's a decent game for the price.

Turok is cheap though, less than $15 for a buy? It's fun to boost IMO, but the campaign is just okay.
