About Turok

Turok is an epic, story-driven first-person shooter set on a dark, mysterious planet in the near future. Players take on the role of Joseph Turok, a former Black Ops commando, now part of an elite Special Forces squad on a mission to take down a war criminal on a genetically-altered planet. After the ship is shot down while approaching the planet, Joseph Turok must use his instincts and elite military training to elude an army of well-trained soldiers, and the ravenous, unpredictable creatures that populate the dangerous environment. Joseph Turok’s mission? Survive at all costs.

Turok is your average FPS. There isn’t anything addictive or impressive about it at all, yet there isn’t anything that makes it a rough experience. It’s just what you’d expect out of any everyday shooter on the market (If you’re a vegetarian, this game also isn’t for you.)

We like

  • Stealth kills will keep you playing
  • Dialogue is half-decent
  • Online co-op for what it's worth

We dislike

  • Storyline disappears halfway through
  • Cinematic quality is absurd
  • Textures need alot of work
