"You can tell a lot about a game by its subtitle. Take the Turok series of dinosaur-themed shooters, inspired by the adventure comics of the same name. First there was Dinosaur Hunter: blunt, functional, dynamic and serious. It told you everything you needed to know about this punchy, atmospheric jungle FPS, a Nintendo 64 launch title. Then came Seeds of Evil and Shadow of Oblivion: epic, suggestive, but ultimately insubstantial. They sounded exciting but dissolved into nothing more than meaningless internal rhymes if you thought about them too hard, just as the two sequels lost their way in a maelstrom of nonsensical plotting and overwrought gore."
