Posted on June 1, 2007, Stephany Turok – The Bane of Dinosaurs is Back


Turok, the FPS that just loves to hate dinosaurs will be landing in stores for the Xbox 360 and PS3 September 17th. Propaganda Games will be releasing a demo before shipping Turok, and promises that new life has been brought to the franchise. Graphics and atmosphere will be more pristine and filled with the â$Ëœwow factor’ thanks to the Unreal Engine 3 , and Propaganda has hinted at the possibility of dinosaurs having A.I. This means that the T-Rex coming at you will be extra frightening and much more than a looming beast with a pea-sized brain. Raptors, the worst of the lot, will be even more cunning and predatory than what we are used to in Turok games. Multiplayer options for up to 16 people is new to the franchise, and players will not only have to contend with these roaming enemies wanting to frag them to bits, but add the raging reptiles into the mix and you have carnage to the extreme.

Turok’s story takes place on a dreary and unknown planet in the future, where your character, John Turok is the member of a Special Forces squad charged with the mission to destroy his former mentor Roland Kane. Now a criminal, Kane lives on this genetically altered planet and has his own army waiting to blast you to bits. The storyline is reminiscent of Turok history, but the question on most fans minds is whether this game picks up where Turok: Shadow of Oblivion left off. It would be unfair to leave us wondering what happened after that memorable cliffhanger, and despite Acclaim going bankrupt and not finishing the storyline in a fourth installment â$” Propaganda should give fans what they want. We all hate an open ending, and here’s hoping that this new chapter closes the book, or takes us along for one hell of a fun ride.
