Game Description: Turok: Evolution is a prequel that takes us back to the origins of the Turok lineage. In the beginning of the game, we see our hero, Tal'Set, fighting his nemesis Captain Tobias Bruckner in 1886 Texas. During the battle, a rift between their world and the Lost Lands opens and Tal'Set is sucked into it. Features and enhancements to this new instalment in the Turok franchise include a ground-breaking Squad Dynamics System for realistic enemy and allied squad AI, and an entirely new game engine built to take full advantage of the next-generation hardware platforms. All-new weapons including Variable Payload Cruise Missiles, Gravity Disrupter Beams, and the Swarm Bore each have unique traits and damage. Flight sequences now enable players to soar through the skies on a winged Pteranodon, and scripted event sequences that bring the world to life with stunning detail. There are 32 different types of prehistoric and indigenous life with frightening realism. The game is full of destructible objects and environments: shoot down trees onto enemies and collapse massive rock spires onto dinosaurs. The environments are lush living jungles: plants move as dinosaurs brush against them and trees sway in the wind. The game also features stealth and action based gameplay directed by context-sensitive, mission-based sequences. Great has also been taken with the multiplayer modes, developed by a dedicated team of designers, programmers and artists.
