The next Turok game installment is complete and on the market, boasting some impressive features not seen yet in the Turok game series. This installment consists around the basis of multi-player action.
Rage Wars is the average run and shoot type game, this time following the Quake 3 type action. Levels consist of groups of halls and a large middle, which is accessible from any side of the map. Most maps have more than one floor, which allows you to gun down other players, leaving them trying to figure out what's going on. Strategic action is possible with the levels of Turok: Rage Wars, unlike the huge multi levels of Turok 2. Most of the weapons have made a past appearance in the other Turok games. My favorites, such as the Cerebel Bore, have certainly made a comeback appearance in the game. New tools are also at your expense, such as the Sentre turret, which if used correctly, can kill any one in a certain area. Turok Rage Wars have the ability to carry 30 weapons, and have adopted a weapon system that is similar to that of Rainbow Six. You choose a certain amount of weapons, and that determines what weapons you can use within the game. Ammo and new weapons are picked up from the floor, like the other Turok games.
Graphics in Turok Rage Wars are a step up from the previous Turoks . There is no more squinting at the TV screen to make out the little characters. It seems that Acclaim has noticed its mistakes in the past, and has put together a game that makes up for it, especially Turok 2's multiplayer. Acclaim has really paid attention to details in Rage Wars. From bots, smooth AI, to the shells of an assault rifle falling to the floor, Turok Rage Wars is a new dimension for the Turok series.
Acclaim has also intregrated the 1 player game and multi very well. Player skins, and new weapons can not be accessed in multiplayer until you have in countered it in the main game. This does become a pain though, because many people purchase this game for multiplayer only. Also a good feature in the single player feature is the ability to choose what path you take as that character. Many missions are also different when played by a different character.
Player skins range from Turok to Death
Over all, Turok Rage Wars is a game that has A LOT of replay value. But if you do not like the shoot 'em up type of game, stay away from this game. Although, it seem that Turok Rage Wars tries not to follow the "kill anything that moves" style of game, by providing the ability to team up.
Replay value: 94%
