Turok may have been state-of-the-art in 1997 but today both its graphics and its gameplay feel virtually prehistoric.

While the ten-year-old inside of me would like to pretend that Turok: Dinosaur Hunter is perfect and the best shooter of all time, I have to admit it isn't and this version isn't anything special. If you're looking to relive a retro experience with slightly better draw distance, a solid 60fps framerate, and a far superior control system then by all means pick this up. If you're more accustomed to the modern day FPS, it's best to leave this one buried in the past.

As a remaster Iguana Games could do a lot better and the price will not please everyone, but Turok is always Turok and a good and fun travel back in time is always welcome.

Turok Remastered plays to all the worst addictive aspects of the FPS genre, keeping you running for that carrot on the stick, and fiending for the rush of a new upgrade.

Turok Remastered is exactly what I expected it to be, and I enjoyed the nostalgia trip. I hope they continue with the series, as Seeds of Evil is still my favorite in the franchise. Turok was a series that definitely had its chance, but I don't think ever got the proper game it deserved. I love revisiting these old N64 titles in a new light, and who knows, perhaps in a few years the dinosaur hunter can once again become relevant in gaming.
