Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Light on story, heavy on action and gore, Turok Evolution will appeal to fans of the series, but lags a bit behind the design philosophy for most newer shooters. Solid gameplay and excellent multiplayer construction are both hampered a bit by questionable AI routines, but overall, you can have a good time in either pastime. The addition of flight modes similar to linear flyers like Rogue Squadron and Star Fox is an excellent break from the first-person action, and fans of that genre will be pleased to find they can dogfight in multiplayer as well. Graphically, Turok Evolution won’t blow you away, but its visuals are decent enough, and the sound design doesn’t disappoint either. All in all, the leap from the N64 didn’t really change the Turok franchise: It’s still not the best out there, but it’s a strong second in a lot of categories.
