Game Nostalgia Part 4: Turok 2008

Turok Evolution, which I showed you before, was actually a total flop. Acclaim Studios, the producer of five different Turok games since 1997, was closed down after their last Turok game “Turok Evolution” from 2002. The game was so bad, even for that time, but today, everyone want it back on PS4. Turok: Dinosaur Hunter from 1997 and Turok 2: Seeds of evil, have already been remastered for PS3 and 4, with better graphics, but not Turok Evolution. I guess it’s considered to bad to make a re-release.

However the Turok franchise was revived in 2008 by another game company who bought the rights from Acclaim Studios. Turok 2008, was a new game with much better graphics and different storyline from the old games. This time, Turok is not Tal Seth, but an US marine named Joseph Turok, former member of Wolfpack, led by general Kane. But later, Turok broke up with Wolfpack and betrayed Kane. Now he’s a member of the new division – Wisky Company. And their mission is to catch and kill Kane on a different planet. Since Turok worked for Kane before, nobody trusts him. His comrade Slade, voiced by legendary Ron Pearlman, dispices him, since his brother was killed on a mission in Columbia. Slade blame Turok for that.

Turok must prove himself worthy and gather their trust through the game. And they land on a planet full of dinosaurs. Together they have to take themselves through the wild and fight against raptors and a huge T-Rex called “Mama Scarface”. Their mission is to survive this hellhole and catch Kane dead or alive.

Here’s some of the gameplay
