Turok: Rage Wars

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Austin Phillips I'm a big fan of the Turok series. I loved Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and couldn't get enough of it. Then I got hooked on Turok 2: Seeds of Evil and after a year I finally beat it. Now Turok: Rage Wars comes storming onto the 64 and boy does it deliver. Great multi player action combined with cool weapons and awesome characters to deliver an experience unlike any other. Here's what I think of the game.

Graphics: 10 out of 10

This game has some of the best graphics on the console to date. The Expansion Pak makes a big difference and makes everything really sharp and crisp. Character models aren't that impressive but they're still reconisible. That's probably to keep the framerate up and boy it helps. This game has no, and I repeat, NO slowdown whatsoever. This makes the game much more enjoyable and keeps everything running nicely. Great detail and animations make these some of the best graphics to date.

Music and Sound: 9 out of 10

TRW has great sound. The music is very low and in the back ground. It even sounds very similar to the music on the Catacombs in Turok 1. It's not that great but helps keep the atmosphere dark and creepy which is really nice. Also, the weapons sound fantastic. Bullets hitting skin, rockets exploding, metal hitting metal, etc. And the players sound nice as well. Each has their own cry when they're hit. They grunt, shout, scream, and so on. This is really nice and helps let you know who's being killed without being in the same room. Fantastic!

Game Challenge: 10 out of 10

Talk about challenging! This game features plenty of challenge and will keep you playing for quite some time. The game goes like this: you pick a character and enter what's called a "trial". When you complete that trial, you unlock weapons, a secret character, and many other things. As the trial goes on, it gets harder and will have you running for your life. Most are pretty simple, like Kill 7 people with 5 lives, and so on. Eventually, missions will be harder, like Kill 20 people with 3 lives. This adds great reply value and will have you playing for months. Trust me, I know.

Game Play-Fun: 10 out of 10

This game is fun fun fun! The great thing is that you can play with up to three other friends, or by yourself with computer controlled bots as the other three players. This is a great way to play and very challenging when nobody's around to play. There are great games like Tag the Monkey, Capture the Flag, Team Battle, and regular Frag Fest. They're all fun and if I tried to explain every one of them I could go on forever. You just have to play them to see. They're all great and add hours of fun and reply value.


1. Some missions may be too challenging. 2. Unlocking everything can take a long time. 3. Poor one player mode gets old after all the characters are unlocked.

Replayability: 9 out of 10

With all the cheats, characters, and weapons to unlock, this game will keep you playing. With or without friends this game in incredibly fun and should be tried by everyone at least once. After everything has been unlocked it will still have you playing just for the sheer fun of it. Let the hunting begin!

Game Value: 10 out of 10

For $20 this game's a bargain. Take my word for it. You won't find a better game than this. Or at least rent or borrow it first because there's mostly multi player and very little single player. A must have for FPS fans.

Content: 7 out of 10

On a short note, it has a mature rating. There's also plenty of violence and blood, so parents of younger children should probably stay clear.

Overall: 9 out of 10

What can I say, I simply love this game. Sure it kind of gets old after a while, but I still come back for more. Try this game. But be warned: once you play you may get hooked. Don't miss this game. Do I dare say it? Okay, I will. I think this game has better multi player than Goldeneye. Some will probably disagree, but I think this is better, more fast paced, and more exciting.
