Nintendo Life - Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was a wise and lucky move for publisher Acclaim Entertainment. In the late '90s, the company was struggling financially and drastically needed to change its fortunes.

LOL WUT? a 5??? nintendo life????? i guess the game lacked too much colors for him

i know he might give it that bad score due to it's severely outdated gfx but if u imagine a remake of this game in unreal engine 4 or a a nextgfen engine................MIND FREAKING BLOWN

this game put most shooters today to shame, it shows how a great single player campaign can be done, great non linear level design, fantastic weapons, great enemies, awesome, amazing atmosphere,it's one of the greatest FPS games of all time along with its AMAZING sequel turok 2 seeds of evil

unfortunately the series started its decline with turok 3: shadow of oblivion, the iguana team has disintegrated, some went to retro studios and some went other studios
