Turok Hands-on for PS3

IGN still enjoys the simple pleasures in life -- a breezy early morning walk, a cup of Joe with some cake, and picking up a tiny dinosaur before slitting its throat with our giant knife.

Thank goodness Touchstone and Propaganda Games enjoy the simple stuff, too.

Yes, Turok is getting closer and closer to its February launch on the PS3 and 360, but folks eager to play will get their chance to step behind Turok's bow and plethora of guns in just a few days when an exclusive demo makes its way into GameStops nationwide.

Graphically, the game's sweeping grass and lush outdoor textures still looked great, but Turok's time in some bland, dark caves weren't much to write home about. While the game ran smoothly a majority of the time IGN was playing, they did notice a framerate drop here and there.

The story is too old to be commented.

I remember being awe struck when I first played TUROK on the N64. The graphics were amazing, the guns were ridiculous, the controls were solid, and the enemies were a good challenge.

TUROK 2 raised the bar again with some of the largest loading-free levels I'd ever seen, and the gameplay was, again, fantastic...

The series kinda took a nose dive after that, but this next gen release looks promising.
The only thing I'm not really liking is the 3rd person cinematic camera angle you get with the scripted animations when you go in for a knife kill. While it's great for trailers, I'm hoping we will have the option to disable that feature in the final game.

Fingers crossed
