Turok - hands-on

Jan 2, 2008

In the late ’90s Turok helped mould the first-person shooter scene for console gamers, but later installments saw a downturn in the dinosaur hunter’s fortunes as he swapped genre-defining action for barrel-scraping tedium.

The latest installment, simply titled Turok, seeks to return the series to its roots and to wisely distance itself from 2003’s clunky Turok: Evolution. Three years in the making, it updates the comic book hero’s mythology by casting him as a Mohawk-sporting black ops soldier on the hunt for his former mentor and war criminal Roland Cain.
