Turok!

Picked this up for my 360 a few days ago, and i am loving it. I was a big fan of the first TUROK on the N64, and this version is even better. The graphics are beautiful, and the game is alot of fun. Killing dinosaurs is very satisfying indeed. As far as the console version goes, some people have complained that there is no auto-aim assistance, so the game is tailored more for the experienced FPS player.....but on the PC, with the advantage of the mouse and keyboard, this would not be an issue. I am not very far into the game yet, but so far it is providing a great gaming experience. Check it out if you get the chance, especially if you liked the original.

Played the demo on the PS3.

I'm impressed. The cut scenes are very well made, and it has a good storyline.

I'm gonna purchase this along with DMC4 and Conflict.

I have no doubt that you will enjoy it. I am at the point in the game where i am running into the first T-Rex, and it is SCARY! The dinosaurs are as scary as you would think they would be in real life, especially the Raptors....they are vicious and cunning, and hard to kill. This is a worthy successor to the original.

Indeed. The original was amazing. One of my favourite games on the Xbox.

Which one to buy today, then? Turok, DMC4 or Conflict; Denied Ops?

My heart is set towards DMC4, but my mind and hands say ROCK BAND! =(

I picked up DMC4 yesterday, I have only played a couple of levels so far. The game is intense, graphics are good, gameplay even better than the first 3. The new combos and abilities lend a lot to the game. Seems there will be a slight learning curve to the new fighting style but the old slash and shoot still works pretty well.

I just might have to do that. I LOVED it on my N64 as well.
