Once upon a time, there was a game on the Nintendo 64 and PC called Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. And in this game, you could kill dinosaurs using bows, blasters and BFGs. You could also make them dance to disco light effects if you had the cheat. It was awesome stuff. Turok was based on a Valiant comic series involving ancient an Indian family that carried a special bloodline through to the modern and future ages. And dinosaurs. Lots of dinosaurs. Turok 2 came out and built on the strong first title in the series. And then things went slowly south, as the series dissolved into simplified sequels, multiplayer-only titles and, in 2003, the series fell into the bland, grey, generic shooter mass with Turok: Evolution.
So here we are, in late 2007, looking at a first-quarter 2008 release of Turok - the first Turok game since 2003, and arguably the most interesting entry in the series since Turok 2: Seeds of Evil back in 1998.
