Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
Reviewed by Psycho Piccolo
This game is the best for the Nintendo 64 yet, it has the awesome
multi player mode that Goldeneye has, yet it features an even
more vast environment more challenge. Even Port of Adia, the
first level, can turn an expert gamer into a novice again. In fact,
the multi player mode is better than Goldeneye! This game
overmatches Ocarina of Time, Donkey Kong 64, Jet Force Gemini,
and other great games. Quite frankly, this the best game I have
played for any Nintendo system. The realism of the animation
may make squeamish players vomit! The weapons looks awesome.
The cheats are very creative. This is the only multi player game,
besides Goldeneye, that features a challenging AI. The monsters,
especially in later levels, are very smart and will occasionally
ambush you or use some other killer strategy.
Graphics 100 out of 100
The graphics without the Expansion Pak are equal to the those
of Goldeneye. With the Expansion Pak, the Graphics are flawless.
When Turok shoots a creature in a certain part, you can actually
see that part getting blown off! The blood splatters everywhere,
making the game super realistic. In fact, if you are Squeamish,
you might want to turn off the blood and avoid shooting a creature
in the head. I've seen the creatures get their heads blown off quite
a few times! The first day I played this game, I had a nightmare
that I was one of the creatures and I got my head blown off by
Turok. If you shoot rapidly, the creature will actually explode. You
get to see these awesome animations even without the Expansion
Pak. The EP just enhances these animations. Again, a squeamish
player should play without the EP (or maybe not play at all). It is
very easy to see why this game received an "M" rating. This game
is possibly scarier than Scream! The graphics and animations are
probably the strong point of the game.
Music and Sound 98 out of 100
The sound effects are awesome. The explosions really rock. The
music sounds goes very well with the game. If you have stereo
sound, then turn it up to the max, because you're going to get a
huge experience with sound and music! The enemy grunts are
very scary sounding. Turok's grunts might be a little annoying,
but they're realistic. The sounds of the shots may make it
actually seem like Turok is in the room shooting you as you
play. This is enhanced with the Rumble Pak. Overall, the only ever
so slight flaw in the sound may be Turok's grunts.
Game Challenge 100 out of 100
Any game where can take up to a week for an expert gamer to
complete the first level is obviously very challenging. If you're
looking for a challenge, then this is the game. The AI is very smart.
As mentioned in the introduction, tougher enemies may ambush you
and make every attempt they can to outsmart you. The AI put a
quite a bit of strategy into this game as well. You also need to have
the desire to explore everywhere like in a Final Fantasy or Zelda
game. Leaving one square inch unexplored can leave to missing a
whole bunch of cool stuff. This is the kind of game that does not
have a frustrating challenge because of the play control of the
computer "cheating." The challenge is thinking and strategy. You
need a brain and good hand-eye coordination to do well with this
game. The challenge in this game is perfect.
Game Play-Fun 100 out of 100
Perfect. Absolutely no flaws or anything wrong with the game play.
This game contains endless fun, looking for hidden passages and
blowing off monsters' heads. In fact, sometimes I just like to do
nothing but stand there and shoot the monsters. Of course, it should
be a long time before you do this, because it's going to be a long time
if you ever manage complete this game. Of course, I prefer RPG and
Zelda type games, but this even has a little bit of that in it. I do like
first-person shooters, but most of them suck. Again, the realism
in the graphics leads up to extended fun in this game. (Yes, it's
blowing off heads and stuff like that.) Anybody who doesn't love
this game must be on drugs. Of course, if you are younger player,
than its understandable. But even younger players will enjoy this
game, just not as much as older players. I'd reccomend this game
to any player who doesn't mind realistic blood and gore. Again,
because of the different elements of this game, you don't have to
be a fan of action or first-person shooters to love this game.
Rumble Pak 100 out of 100
It's kind of hard get much out of the Rumble Pak, but this is as far
as you're going to be able to go. The Rumble Pak enhances that realistic
feel of the game. If you're squeamish, than don't use it. Not much to
say about the category, but any game that's Rumble Pak compatible
is almost guaranteed a perfect score in this category.
Really nothing at all. The jumping was fixed from the original Turok.
The jumping's not perfect, but it's still not any problem at all.
Replayability 100 out of 100
The vastness of this game give it excellent replay value. Once
you finally beat the game, you can do what I do and just watch
the monsters go by-bye. Of course, you'd be better off annialating
your friends in the multi player mode. Find out more details about
the awesome multi player mode in the Multi player Section. Overall,
this game may never slip out of you grip.
Game Value 100 out of 100
This one's a no-brainer. You can buy it preowned for around 20 bucks.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with a preplayed Nintendo 64 game
if it uses a Memory Card. It still worth the full price of around 40 to
50 bucks, though.
Innovation 97 out of 100
You can't really make any innovations in this type of game. The
multi player mode is the first one that lets you costumize it in-depth.
That's about all I can say about innovation, perfect.
Multi player Mode 100 out of 100
I could tell you all the details of the multi player mode, but that would
take forever. I'll just tell you the basics. You choose which level you
play in, choose the texture, select four different modes, set a timer,
set handicaps, and much more. Again, this multi player mode has
everything possible in it. The weapons are very cool as well. I love
the Charge Darts! A perfect multi player mode for a perfect game.
Overall 100 out of 100
This is the best game for any Nintendo system. You can't go wrong
with this baby. The conclusion is basically a rewording of the
introduction. If you can stand blood and gore, then this game is for
you. I guarantee that this will be one of the best, if not, the best
game you have ever played. This is the only game that I think will
ever receive a perfect overall score.
