I grew up with Turok and Turok 2. Goldeneye was never able to hold my interest after I beat it, but I would play Turok on and off constantly. Looking forward to these classic coming over and I would vote underrated personally (though to be fair, and game that came out after the N64 was nothing compared to the first 3 games).

I think Turok has aged better, the platform hopping and level design makes it a more challenging entry than GE, so I think it will be an enjoyable experience on the Switch. GE was the better game then in 97 but I find it boring these days.



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.

The Turok series, 1, 2 and 3 were amazing games. Even though the 3rd one was a downgrade as they attempted to make it a openish world were some of the best games of there era in my opinion. I loved the universe. The trilogy needs a remake.

While I agree with most of your points I mist point out you have it backwards the first 2 games featured semi open world design while the 3rd game adopted linear level design in a attempted to be more like half-life.

I voted underrated. I still play this game while certain elements like story telling are very outdated it's exploration based level design and incredibly fast paced gameplay still make it fun to play now I recently got the HD version for switch. Also a lot has been made of the fog but no one brings up that goldeneyes jungle level looked far worse.

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 .

That is a good "general description" of it =]
