FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

What do these ratings mean?

Ok, question. When you hear the name, Turok, what do you think of? Foggy background? Little if no storyline at all? This, is not the Turok that Acclaim put out so long ago. This Turok is taken on by a new devoloper, and has a little bit more of a story than the last few games. The game starts off with you in a space ship, as Joseph Turok. Yes his last name is Turok. It's not any name given to him for being the son of stone(refer to Turok:Evolution). At first the game has a good sounding story, but all  of the sudden, your ship is hit and you are crash landing on the planet below. After this, the game switches from the interesting story, to something of a good, but crappy, survival game. You basically, try to survive long enough to get off the planet (how many times have we done this?) while many of your fellows are killed in cutscenes. The game looks good, having used the Unreal Engine 3. However, there are a few parts where if you get a good look at the textures, it looks like it was painted on. The dinosaurs (bet you thought that I forgot the dinos, eh?) look great. In fact maybe the best out of any of the characters of the game. The games weapons aren't what they were in Turok and Turok 2, etc. They don't have the all of the fancy, high tech weapons. No instead you get a SMG. A sniper rifle, a sticky bomb gun, a shot gun, grenades, a bow and arrow, and a knife. The knife kill animations look good, and it can make some of the part of the game more fun, but a little bit easier. The best thing to do in this game is to just go through and kill the dinos. They are probably the smartest enemies in the game (imagine that, either these guys are the really dumb dinos in man suits, or they got a diploma at the University of Holiday Inn Express). This game could be considered a real downer on the original Turoks, but it still fairs pretty well on it's own, so it can be considered a complete failure.
