View Full Version : Turok Evolution

12-17-2002, 10:10 AM
I just got this game for X-Box, and it's so awesome!!!

The first 4 chapters are nice, but the later levels....man they are HARD and awesome. Talk about a killing spree!!! :joy:

The enemies aren't very accurate or smart in the first levels, but later on they'll team up on you, retreat and come back with backup! The guns are sweet, my favorites are the Fletchette's upgrade-Minigun, the Rocket LAuncher, Flame Thrower, Grenades, hell, i like love them all! The game is pretty hard, you can't save anywhere, it saves in the beginning of each stage, which is kinda good since you get panic attacks when you think you're at the end of the level, and there's like 4 snipers you don't see and all of a sudden your health keeps dropping! You'll probably be swearing and yelling and crying and screaming if they kill you. hehehe

The weapon effects are all done nicely, if you use the flamethrower, you'll get a 'blurr' effect, same with the rocket launcher. The sniper pistol is nice, and the posion arrows are really fun to use cause it makes the enemy throw up, grasp their neck, fall over, throw up some more, and then DIE. ehehehe the minigun is awesome, but has ALOT of muzzle flashes, making it hard to see an enemy as he runs towards you, but that gun...man once you pop you don't wanna stop!!! The spider mine is pretty awesome, it's a remote controlled spider machine thing, and you send it into a place with lots of enemies and select an option of what you want it to do, either release poisonous gas, explode, call enemies towards it, or abort.

All the enemies have a good amount of detail on them, and they take location specific damage, and in the later levels they start getting bigger, and they all use weapons that you use or eventually will use, that includes flamethrowers, rocketlaunchers, grenades, sniper stuff, miniguns, autoshotguns. They all have gory death animations too, but there IS an option to turn blood off, but where's the fun in that? :confused:

Now before you go out and rent or buy it, be warned that I haven't played Halo, Splinter Cell, or any other FPS on the xbox.


I haven't tried multiplayer yet, since I need to get another xbox controller, but I'm sure it's fun.

Also, you can knock trees and stuff over onto enemies in order to kill them.

The quetzalcoatus (pterodactly thing you fly) levels are very cool, just think of the controls like in Starfox64. You can also man gun turrets you find in certain areas, they ahve unlimited ammo. hehe

well this review is OVER. =p

now play Halo, and you will see turok with other eyes :)

12-17-2002, 03:10 PM
Since you've been talking about it so much 15, I'm going to check it out. :D

Com Raven
12-17-2002, 03:28 PM
rent it, and give it a try :)

12-17-2002, 03:33 PM
well, at least the framerates stay constant, unlike all the other turok games except the first and rage wars. =d

Now i gotta buy Mech Assault......tried to rent it, called to check (called hollywood video cause i got these 99 cents to rent any game or video....) and they don't got it til the 20th!!! ARGH!!

o well, i don't know how far that place is from here anyways...

12-17-2002, 03:48 PM
I was gonna say, don't bother renting Mech Assault......just go and buy it! :D

Bah, I wish I could rent games here.

12-17-2002, 06:38 PM
Wha....do they not do that in Norway or something?

Com Raven
12-18-2002, 05:50 AM
yeah, you guys need MA and LIVE, combo made in heaven...

12-18-2002, 10:28 AM

MA for christmas.....LIVE is in the planning stage now. ;)

12-18-2002, 07:55 PM
hmmm....the levels are pretty short near the end, but ****!!! they are HARD!!! hard as in, you have to THINK which weapon to use in each situation and have to be nicely accurate, and it's so cool....

12-18-2002, 08:03 PM
Man you're gonna have this game beat soon. How many levels are there??

12-18-2002, 08:11 PM
I think like 14 chapters, and like 4-5 levels in each. i'm not going to spoil myself by finding out!

the game seems to focus more on killing and intense battles than saving people, in fact, this one guy u have to escort, is invincible to your own fire. hehehe

Com Raven
12-19-2002, 06:56 AM
as long as he's not invincible to the enemy's fire :)

Nope, nowhere around me at least.

12-24-2002, 02:13 AM
Man, you can't even do that in the capital of the country?? That sucks...

Hey 15! How far are you now??


12-24-2002, 10:16 AM
somewheres in chapter 10. my friend, S1DC, said if I got killed, we had to open eachothers presents like a day early, so i was like 'o ya' and went through 2 levels w/o dying then i got slammed by a rocket and a bunch of other badguys and died. now i have Starfighter Special Edition. =]

Com Raven
12-24-2002, 10:25 AM
cool game, not all that deep, but fun, and it has the SW atmosphere...

12-24-2002, 01:19 PM
So he didn't get you Halo huh...oh well. I bet you died on purpose though. :D

12-24-2002, 04:31 PM
hehe ya i think i just wanted to play something else. =]

he said to me when i opened it, that i'd probably have alot of FPS games for xbox, so he decided to get me something different. And he knows how much i liked Rogue Squadron, so i wasn't dissapointed, and was pretty surprised.

(he told me he was looking for obiwan lol, i wouldn't have minded getting that game, just to add to my sw collection)

Com Raven
12-24-2002, 04:46 PM
I am waiting for a price drop on obi-Wan, to add it as well :)

12-24-2002, 08:03 PM
Damn, all these exclusive Star Wars games on the XBox...

Oh well, GC has it's fair share of those (Rogue Squadron).

Okay, that's one...


12-25-2002, 02:32 AM
Guys please don't get Obi-Wan! :( I thought it was cool at first, but then I realized how boring it was.........I would hope that the price would have to drop to near free before you guys get it......but oh well.

I was happy to trade mine for JO...:D


Com Raven
12-25-2002, 06:35 AM

12-28-2002, 12:54 PM

Com Raven
12-28-2002, 01:49 PM

12-28-2002, 04:47 PM
Yeah I know....but I was praising the game. That'll be the only time you see me do that. :D

Com Raven
12-29-2002, 03:43 AM

Com Raven
12-29-2002, 12:02 PM
that's the bad part, once you finish MA, you'll hunger for LIVE...

12-29-2002, 01:51 PM
I already hunger for LIVE....everytime I look at the case for it.....and then I have you to remind me! :D

An ass kickin? Hhmmm........we'll have to see! :p

12-29-2002, 06:20 PM

Com Raven
12-30-2002, 01:44 AM
In MA, voice masks are:

Dark Master
Big Guy

that should be it for MA, though it's already different in UC for example...

Yeah, talking is pretty cool...

12-30-2002, 05:07 AM
i'll probably use dark master or whisper. hehe I'm stuck in Turok Evolution, well....actually i'm not really stuck i'm hm...haven't palyed it in a while actually had a dream about it last night...i'll play it when i feel like playing it don't feel like playing it right now cause i want to play mech assault right now. and i'm tired stupid internal clock woke me up at 7 am...

Com Raven
12-30-2002, 08:50 AM

12-30-2002, 11:51 AM

Com Raven

I am currently busy trying to get into top 100 in team last man...

and tomorrow the first donwloadable map should be available...

01-01-2003, 06:54 PM
Did you get that d/l map yet?

If so, was it a map of a level on the game or something else?

Com Raven
01-02-2003, 07:03 AM
so far I didn't get it...

it's called Hell's Kitchen, and should be evry similar to the Ragnarok levels in the sp game...

01-02-2003, 05:56 PM
I have played Halo. It's a very awesome game, but i like Turok more. And i am not going to compare the two like i tried to w/turok 2 and goldeneye. :D

Com Raven
01-03-2003, 01:38 AM
Turok more than Halo ?

You sick bastard!!!! :)

01-04-2003, 05:56 AM
hehe stayed up for hours playing Turok last night...made it past Chapter 10. that had to be the most intense, stressful, adrenaline rush i've ever had, especially this one level where I DID NOT WANT TO DIE, i came SO close a few times was like 'AAAHHH!!!!' but i beat it cause i am so damn good at it!! Now I'm at this Flying level, it's a pain cause everything is crammed and it's frustrating so I quit playing for the night. Glad to have beat chapter 10 though...if you're looking for a challenging game that you most likely won't beat in a week, get Turok Evolution!!! The mp is pretty good, just play fair unlike me and my friend by NOT using the damn annoying plasma seeker gun!!!

Com Raven
01-04-2003, 06:07 AM
the best thing about Turok multiplayer was the one weapon that mde the victims brains pour out...

01-04-2003, 09:31 AM
I love that too! :D It is so much fun to do/see that!

Com Raven
01-04-2003, 10:49 AM
You sick weirdo...

01-04-2003, 02:29 PM
2 words:


01-06-2003, 09:51 AM
Yeah 15, I feel that the rocket launcher on just about any mp is a sweet weapon. I loved it when I used to play Goldeneye about 20 hrs a day (or maybe it seemed like it). :D
