I got a question for you, Have you ever had a dream of being a native American man, fighting dinosaurs, aliens, and robots, while riding gigantic triceratops? Mounted with dual grenade launchers? If not, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil is probably not for you, what the hell is wrong with you? It is practically childhood imagination that comes to life, in a neat and gory package with fantastic death animations. It also sports the wonderfully inventive and equally gruesome cerebral bore launcher. A sadistic weapon that fires a homing bolt that digs out a humanoid target’s brain and explodes. All of this is accompanied by neat sound effects and a catchy score. That being said there is something a bit odd with some of the models from the original Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. Such as the blinking animation.
The levels in Turok 2 are sprawling vistas and complicated labyrinths that will drive anyone insane. In fact, that is the biggest issue, that can not be fixed without a total redesign of the game. Essentially the whole game is a needlessly convoluted maze, divided by teleportation pads. Which does rear its ugly head every now and then when a thing can clearly be reached, but an invisible wall stands in the path. I have spent too much time looking for that damnable cage in the land of mad monkey mooks.
The last boss is still a boring bastard, which is easiest to beat with the nuclear launcher, which is littered all over the map
This is by no means the first time Turok 2 has been released on pc, but at least this time around it is a lot better when it comes to the control setup. Not to mention the ability to plug in a gamepad. However one of the neatest things is the objective markers that can be activated, which show destroyable things with an exclamation mark. The character models have also had a major upgrade. Which is very easy to notice, when going into the character gallery. As the story progresses various cheats are unlocked and they are as glorious and silly as ever before. Unlike the first Turok, the wireframe mode is back.
Naturally, steam achievements are included as well, too bad they are disabled when a cheat is activated. Plus there are trading cards. The multiplayer is also back in action, in all, its gory glory. Though it is for the most part the standard affair. All in all a very neat and nifty package, that comes highly recommended for fans of the series. Unless you hate being stuck in a giant maze, whilst searching for the next objective.
