Thumbs up Turok Evolution

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!!!

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?

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

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

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)

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...

In MA, voice masks are:

Child
Brat
Whisper
Dark Master
Robot
Helium
Cartoon
Big Guy
Bass

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


Yeah, talking is pretty cool...
