Gamersyde Diaries: Turok

Gamersyde Diaries: Turok

More than a month and half after our last Diaries devoted to The Simpsons, and after the release of numerous highly anticipated games as well as christmas blockbusters, publishers finally start to show-off their games again. It begins with the new Turok game by Propaganda, as usual presented with our impressions, lots of gameplay and real pieces of interview. Caution: this game might be a little bit gore...

Wow, absolutely awesome guys!! COMPLIMENTS!

Well, yeah, the game looks very good to me. Starting with an uninteresting indoor level, to come after that with such great outdoor levels... Those knife actions are stunning, can't find a word to discribe them. that's gonna be fun! The dinosaures are well done, with a lot of varities, great animations and cool sound. Especially that comodo-lion, so fast. How that little sucker runs and hides in the gras... and how the gras moves, that's just so cool, really frightening.
OK, the AI of human oppostes could be better. But the dinos are so great that it's not that worse.
And I think that online coop sounds very good!!

looks ok great work guys as alway,
it looks a little easy, as i never seen the guy die while playing the game, but i have to play the demo & see it for my self to decide if i will buy it

I personally think it looks really good.

Love games where dinosaurs are involved. I just think it makes the gameplay much more interesting.

Will most probably pick this one up! (Y)

Not bad at all. I agree with the hosts, but I specially like the way the dinos behave.

it looks "ok", but not great. i mean with all these great looking games out it`s hard to get excited over this one. i know it`s unfinished, but still....
to me it looks like the same thing over and over. look around - get jumped by dino, kill it in one of two ways (shoot, knife). at least in the clips it looks very repetitious. yeah i know it`s a shooter...of course it`s more or less the same thing over and over ;)

so it`s wait and see for me. (what else, hehe)

great program nevertheless ^_^ as always!

i like the way the dinos and the good guys animate, not so much the bad guys though. Seems like a pretty good game, but I can't explain why it doesn't seem like something i would buy...
Commented on 2007-12-08 15:34:28
i think the swarming dinos will offer some neat gameplay elements.

but seriously: do we need another shooter with protagonists like that? come on... this is getting old really fast.

Looks cool!

When they implement some nice riddles, or some new game elements, to bring some new wind, it will be DA HIT! If it's just a shooter with some nice story and dino animations, it will still be a quite good game. I really love the athmosphere of the game, reminds me a bit of being a kid and watching for the first time Jurassic park at cinema... what an experience!! ^^
But today I'll go and buy Uncharted... yeeeppeeeehhhhh!!

Always nice to see a new gamersyde diary. However, if i can make one remark : I don't think you make it very clear who is actually presenting and making it.

On the forum the mods use nicknames like Blimblim, but in the video you use your real names. Why not add the nickname in it. It would be nice to link the people who make the website to the people in the video. it would make it all a bit more personnel.

Perhaps they want to keep a certain anonymity??

Perhaps they want to keep a certain anonymity??
And how would they achieve that? The video shows their real names and the website their avatars. So it's not really about anonymity. It seems to me that it would be nice to know who's who and make the link between both.

Anyway, otherwise all is good. Great diary as usual !!

Well if you really want to know who's who, you can check the "about" page ;)
Commented on 2007-12-11 17:18:00
Hahaha, well, so much about my anonymity-theory *lol*

@topic: any release date?
Commented on 2007-12-13 21:30:21
Looks okay, I watched some multiplayer footage and wasn't impressed. Single player looks okay though. If I rented video games, I'd rent this.

OMG i thought turok games died after n64 but i guess there going to try again

About the game


What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane On a different subject all together. if only the entire world acted like this: [url] (13 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (26 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (29 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (49 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (51 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (56 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (57 minutes ago)
