Hunting is not one of my passions, but hunting dinosaurs is surely something many of us dreamed one day. Anyway, we're not going to talk about Jurassic Park here, because I have a subject that's going to keep you occupied for a longer time, that's for sure. Its name? Turok!
<-250x250 Square - left->While the Turok character appeared in 1954, the first Turok game appeared 43 years later - Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, for the Nintendo 64 and PC. This game was followed by Turok: Battle of the Bionosaurs for the Game Boy, the same year, and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, in 1998. Since then, 3 more games in the series were released, but the last one gets back to the roots, being simply called "Turok."This year's Turok is available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, and the PC version has been officially announced by Touchstone yesterday. With a suggested retail price of $49.99, Turok for PC allows you to play with the mouse and keyboard or a game controller, and features a very interesting story-driven single player mode, as well as multiplayer gaming for up to 16 players.
"Fans of Windows-based PC games have been excited about the opportunity to experience Turok on their favorite platform. We are confident that Turok delivers a unique gameplay experience that will make their wait worthwhile," said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Touchstone.
Need I say more? The dream is over, now get your black ops commando boots, impersonate Joseph Turok, go to a mysterious planet in the future and start hunting dinosaurs!
