I though you were comparing Turok as overrated vs Dino Hunter as underrated and would complain you didn't had Dino Crisis in your thread =]
I would say Turok was well regarded on its own right.
I can't make a judgement on Dino Crisis as I never played a game in that series. My PS1 one time was mostly compromised of JRPGs then, with the occasional Resident Evil, Tekken, GT play through. But I understand it was like RE with Dino's at least from EGM mag clips in those days .
