The Turok: The Dinosaur Hunter franchise is one with a long, and not entirely happy, history. The original Turok was a comic book tie-in game released on the Nintendo 64, and one of the earliest first-person shooters to be found on a console. It was met with favorable reception at the time and promptly spawned a series of sequels. Unfortunately, each succeeding sequel was less and less well received, coming out after games like GoldenEye 007 and, in the case of the last title, Halo had taken the FPS genre far ahead of Turok. After a disappointing reaction to the 2002 Turok: Evolution, new developers Propaganda Games decided that perhaps it was time to bring Turok into the future with an entirely new entry into the franchise. Now, almost six years after the last title, Turok returns to the battlefield with Touchstone's latest offering, simply named Turok.
