Project Y4 is OUT NOW! (Version R02d)
I wish I could have been a part of the late-90s shooter boom, but we could never afford a PC or any of those early 3D consoles at the time. Luckily gog.com exists in the present day and is slowly but surely unearthing all the shonky PC ports of strange games I glimpsed on billboards and in magazines but never imagined I would ever get to touch.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter here is not the original game, but a (slightly?) remastered edition that was actually cranked out fairly recently. Generally I aim for purism -- all official original patches and expansions but nothing more -- but that's not an option here so you'll have to forgive my ignorance of the Original Version and take my review as being of... whatever they've changed/fixed/upgraded in this new version.
Adventure, swashbuckling, tropical islands, strange creatures and ancient ruins; these are a few of my favourite things (and in the game). I gave my brother my gog.com wishlist so he could birthday me without fear, and he first picked Risen 3: Titan Lords -- a game which has all of these things in spades.
I don't go on traditional summer holidays these days, but a trip to some imagined tropics doesn't sound so bad...
