Turok is back and no dinosaur is safe! 🦖

For those of you too young to remember these games, they are both N64 first person shooters. To be fair they were re-released digitally on Xbox One and Switch. Both games put you in the role of the time traveling Native American hunter Turok, though the 2 “Turoks” are not the same person. It’s complicated and not worth the hassle to explain. All you really need to know is that you go around shooting dinosaurs, which is a concept so fucking cool I’m shocked it’s not featured in more games.
With that said, $35 a pop is pretty pricey for these games, as good as they are, and I would wait to see if they are offered in a bundle or Christmas sale. That said, these are two classic games that hold up pretty well. However, if you can only afford one I would grab Turok 2 as it is slightly better game play wise than Turok 1.
Their products are limited runs, as the name implies, so don’t wait too long to order these games of any other the others they have for sale. To all my fans, I apologize if this article is a little bland but I am still recovering from the wonderfully enlightening #SlutStream Billy forced me to watch. You just can’t unsee some things no matter how many beers you guzzle down.
