    Uh, I loved the previous ones dating back to the 64 this new one is, for lack of a better word, phenomenal. I Love it. If you haven’t tried it or played it yet...you might be missing out.

    *Side note*
    The Wii has proven to be a novelty act and though fun (at times) it still comes down to pushing a button and not having to move in order to do something. Plus, Nintendo’s flagship franchises have just become too easy to beat and severely lack replay value. Metroid’s, Mario’s, Zelda’s...I love them but they are just not challenging games anymore.

    I was interested in this when it was announced and after watching the videos. But the not so great reviews and frustrating demo have delayed me from picking it up./ Maybe when it is cheaper I will check it out, because the dino action does look good.

    Two points:

    • Are you trying to start a flamewar, cause that's what it looks like. What does the new Turok game have to do with the first party games on the Wii?
    • The period is your friend.
    That said, does the plot have anything at all to do with the comic storyline, or did they just ditch that completely?

    The N64 Turok days were the Glory days. I played the demo and wasn't impressed at all. Graphically, I was very let-down. I hate to be a graphic snob, but Gears of War, Mass Effect (minus the texture pop-up) Uncharted, and Ratchet have really set a snobby standard for me.

    Perhaps you overlooked *side note*, because that usually denotes a rant aside from the initial topic. I’m sorry that wasn't clear enough. And I see a few periods. I'd say all in all what I stated was straight forward with grammar and punctuation.

    Anyway I’ve never looked at Turok comics. So I can’t answer your question.

    Meh, I agree with most of your rant anyway. I'll get my Wii if Mario Kart supports control pad controls instead of just Wiimote, and/or, when Kid Icarus gets announced, if ever.

    I guess I saw the connection since the first Turok was on N64 back in the day.

    Both Mario Kart and SSBB can use the Gamecube controller.
    Don't get me wrong, you're entitled to your opinion, but I think that it doesn't really need to be interjected into a thread about the new Turok game.

    They don't have to be challenging. And what does it have to do with Turok?

    The demo required a lot of work before you got to the nice graphics and compelling gameplay.

    Who in the world decided they should showcase the game by using a sequence in a dark cave wher you can't see anything?

    I didn't really like how I had these futuristic weapons that did no damage at all to the dinosaurs yet my knife could kill them instantly.

    Despite my criticisms, I did like the game.
    And, they get major points for casting Ron Perlman as a character named Slade. I kept expecting him to say "I am disappointed in you, Robin".

    However, if you want me to buy your game, you should not release it at the same time as Devil May Cry and Lost Oddysey.

    I played Turok: Dinosaur Hunter on the N64, and I believe I still have it. It wasn't a bad game, just really... foggy.

    This game is certainly beautiful, but it lacked enough that I wasn't overly impressed by it. The Dinosaurs themselves seemed to still have a jerky, random movement to them, and a mysterious "warp" capability in that they would be on the far side of the room one second and then POP! Right in your face.

    This may be a game I'd pick up later on down the road, but seeing as how I'm still so engrossed in CoD4 I've still got Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed sitting right under it on my computer desk here. They'll occupy my time in the foreseeable future, then maybe I'll give this new Turok a chance. And maybe by then it'll be under $30.

    Too much to play, and not enough interest. Devil May Cry 4 and Lost Odyssey will get my money first.

    As a question to your side rant, not taking it personally in any way, I have always noticed Nintendo's first party games usually try to give you lots to do, and generally only a few of those things challenging. Afte playing Metroid Prime 3, Twilight Princess, and Mario Galaxy recently, I would say that's still what they shoot for. Lots to do, little of it too challenging. So, how would you say they have changed? (besides the evil that is Adventure of Link- that was a challenge)

    Oh, and those 3 games, along with Super Paper Mario, make me feel that at least Nintendo doesn't think this system a novelty act.
