    Well, Hell. That made me want to run out and not buy Turok. Not that I was going to, but at least that reinforced my lack of impulse to do so. Well done.

    And that is why I am waiting for the pc version to come out. Im a huge Turok fan since the N64 days, but by god the controls leave little to be desired. If CoD4 could pull off smooth controls on the console, why cant Turok.

    I see nobody is complaining about the subtle hint that Gears of War is nothing more than a Halo clone...

    That was a good point about the controls, but I am perplexed by his failure to mention the growing trend to have the "look stick" inverted by default, so when you push up you look down.

    It's a shame, when Turok was first announced I was so pleased, but the finished result is nothing like what I hoped for.

    Bloody funny, as always. :lol: The video enhances everything that's said again. :D

    His reviews aren't exactly reviews though. :p Its all entertainment.

    That video was very entertaining, but hardly so in depth that it should mention a tiny "issue" like that.
    If you ask me, pushing the stick forward you should make you look down, just like it does in real life, with machines like airplanes and of course actual humans, or whatever else has a head.
    (If you tilt your head backward and end up looking down... go see a doctor!)
    DN3D had it right calling the alternative "inverted", Quake did not.
    Still, I just correct it for whatever game I just started playing once, and never even think about it again.

    Hardly suitable material for this video, which again, I found very amusing.
    The new Turok didn't seem like it'd be bad, the videos of gibs looked cool, but it wasn't very attractive to me overall.
    Reviews such as this don't help making me want to pick it up. :)

    Cept for the fact that the gameplay is as far away from Halo's gameplay as possible? :lol:

    I agree with Elmuerte that I prefer to play inverted, but I think that is because we are used to playing PC games like this. Retodon8 is right that for a lot of people like to play not inverted and it is also more logical. That is the reason they do it like this in cranes.

    Cool. ;-) Not that I was rofling my whole house, because it was actually sadly accurate (talking about general stuff, like brown/yellow colors, etc). I was just wondering when the hell that man catches his breath? :) Bit difficult to catch all things for non-native speaker though. But cool. :)

    I assume the only thing that would please you would be a double D hooker with dsl's and a passion for free sex then? Or at least I hope I'm right :eek:
