My favorite is the Turok 2008 reboot. I just really enjoy how they tried to make a story out of it, and how they added elements from things such as Gears of War and Star Trek (Terraforming). And how they stayed true to the  Dinosaur Hunter moniker. And what I mean by that is the dinosaurs. The original NES games had more than dinosaurs, they had fantastical monsters. That is interesting, but as a fan of the original comic series, I just liked the dinosaurs.

Granted, later in the original comic series there were such things as Aliens, and Monsters, but the series was on point with the dinosaurs.
Enjoy yourself!

Turok Dinosaur Hunter is my favourite.
Running around the jungle with a hunting knife, slashing jerks necks to a tribal beat is great fun. The shotgun is Turok DH has the 2nd best in FPS games. (Doom's shotty being the king)

I liked a lot the atmosphere of Turok 1 but the level desig of Turok 2 was so cool and fun to fight with the enemies, i think, i will go with T2.
But there was awesome stuff in T1 like the auto-shotgun or the fight with the T-Rex (need more T-rex battle!  ;D ) they are so scaring  :o
Turok 2 then Turok 1, i haven't played the others.

I think, i will try Turok 3 ^^

I've chosen Turok 2 as my favourite simply because that's the one I've put most hours into.  I don't know how much of my life I've thrown into that game but it's a lot!

The first game is super cool and I love it as much as SoE but I just haven't spent as much time with it.

I'm ashamed to say that I've never completed Shadow of Oblivion (so please don't spoil the ending!).  I got it at the end of my time with the N64 which I then traded in to get my 'Cube and then eagerly awaited Evolution. 

Evolution was fun enough but I must admit I was a little underwhelmed...  I suppose, at the time, I just presumed that it would push the GameCube as hard as the first 3 games pushed the N64.  And those bloody loading times... Grrrr!  I also really, really missed the wobbly camera when Turok climbed things.  In the earlier games Turok felt like he had real heft and weight behind him.  The GameCube game just didn't have that weighty movement.  Evolution has a really lovely soundtrack though.  I love it and still listen to it on a regular basis. 

The Game Boy (Advance) games were just too hard for their own good.  It's a shame because I think there was a lot of potential for a great 2D series of Turok games.  GBA Evolution isn't too bad though.  Again, the music is great.

Turok '08... Well, I don't really count it as much of a Turok game.  It's just too generic and feels like a me-too kinda game.  Even Turok's haircut screams Gears of War.  Why couldn't Turok look like bloody Turok!?  Disappointment aside, I suppose the game's okay but as has already been mentioned it's just not a good Turok game...

Turok 2008 aint Turok, man...
Turok Evolution removed the shaky stuff because half the players puked up on their N64 and i am not kidding, people really got sick especially from the Turok 2 Knive hahahaha
The Game Boy games were okay at best, Turok Evolution GBA was a fun run and gun nonetheless. It doesnt help that all of the Game Boy ones except Evolution were made by one guy and some composers / graphic designers.

It was a difficult choice but I will be with Turok 1 simply because because of him that I became obsessed with turok, a fps with an Indian as protagonist facing dinosaurs in a forest is sensational. Turok 2 has more variety and improvements over the first but my vote goes to Dinosaur Hunter.

Should we make a topic-poll for the gb games since it's not the same kind of games than the FPS games?
I play with Turok 2 (i have finished T1) Game boy and i think I prefer T1 gb, i wanted know the thoughts of the other people on those games  :)
(not sure if Dinomite received my message for this poll, i see nothing in the message sent  :o )
