Growing up in the late 90s made us privy to some pretty amazing games. Included in that list is Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. The game pitted you, Turok, against dinosaurs both biological and bionic.
As you battle your way across a variety of landscapes, your mission is to collect pieces of the Chronoscepter before the evil Campaigner does. Here’s what you’ll be getting when you pick up the original game:
- Completely 3-D Virtual World Run – jump, climb in any direction in a fully 3D world, with the ability to independently look and aim your weapons up, down, or sideways.
- Intelligent Enemies Programmed for Ferocity – Variable aggression profiles make each enemy behave uniquely.
- 14 Monstrous High-tech Weapons – From the Grenade Launcher, Plasma Pulse Rifle and Alien Weapon, to the Quad Rocket Launcher and, the mother of all guns, the Atomic Fusion Cannon!
- Advanced Interactive Backgrounds with Particle Technology Cobwebs sway – Bubbles form rings on the water’s surface. Bullets ricochet. Trees explode into flames and crash to the ground. Waterfalls boil with foam.
- Bionically Engineered Dinosaurs Razor-toothed Raptors – Artillery-packing Triceratops. Alien Infantry and a Laser-Guided T-Rex. Following your every move with head-tracking technology.
Of course, if you can’t get enough of the original, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is also on the Xbox One. The sequel picks up right where you left off in the first one. When you destroy the Chronoscepter in an awaiting volcano, you awoke an ancient evil called the Primagen. The Primagen’s goal is to merge earth with the netherworld. Your goal is to stop it. Here’s what you get to accomplish that task:
- Remastered Locations – Conquer 6 engrossing Quest Levels including the Port of Adia, the Death Marshes and the Lair of the Blind Ones.
- Over 20 Weapons – Unload multiple ricocheting shotgun shells with the Shredder. Send brains flying with the skull-drilling Cerebral Bore, a fan favorite. Stomp enemies flat while riding an artillery-mounted Triceratops!
- New Multiplayer – The new Multiplayer mode lets you battle with your friends. Using the best levels, weapons, and visuals from both the PC and Nintendo 64 versions, players will encounter a fun and visceral multiplayer experience. Players can also choose between a few skins for their character in combat.
Both games will set you back about $40 USD with each one costing $20. That’s a steal. So be sure to hit the source links below to grab your copy.Purchase Turok: Dinosaur Hunter Purchase Turok 2: Seeds of Evil Source: Major Nelson
