Turok 2: Seeds of Evil on Nintendo Switch! Having defeated the Campaigner, Turok throws the Chronocepter into a waiting volcano to destroy it. Unfortunately, the blast awakens an even deadlier force – The Primagen.
Once again a Turok is tasked with restoring peace to the land and stopping the Primagen from merging Earth with the nether world. Fight your way through 35 different types of enemies with bouncing bellies, blinking eyes, stretching tentacles and snapping jaws. From Prehistoric Raptors to evolved Flesh Eaters, to your final battle with the Mother of all beasts— you’ll want to defeat all of them! Enemies are intelligent! They’re smart enough to attack in groups, to flee when they are outgunned, and to take cover during a firefight. Enemies flinch and spasm differently depending on which body part you hit. Conquer 6 engrossing Quest Levels including the Port of Adia, the Death Marshes and the Lair of the Blind Ones. Unload multiple ricocheting shotgun shells with the Shredder. Stomp enemies flat while riding an artillery-mounted Triceratops!
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil was released on the Nintendo 64 in 1998. This an updated port, but it still has all the same nostalgia for the original version. This update includes less fog and more frames!
The rest of the game looks and plays like the original. The character designs are all block-shaped, with unclear textures. There are gyro controls which I very quickly turned off. The gameplay is the same as back in ’98. This means there is no cover mechanic, no reload functionality, no-frills. This is all about finding the blank kill the dinosaurs.

The soundtrack is the same and will have you back in your basement playing this with friends. It’s rocky, repetitive and I love it.
Enemies aren’t that smart, AI has evolved a lot since the late nineties. They charge at you and provide great target practice. They aren’t that varied and you’ll see all of them in the first couple of levels.
Though one issue I had with the original, and still do with this one is the games aren’t linear. They have no clear beginning or end, you will find yourself going right back to where you started at times. This may be the problem with games nowadays, as they do tend to spoon-feed you the objectives.
Another issue is the lack of split-screen local multiplayer. An online mode will be added in the future though.
Turok 2 is the same game we loved back in 1998. But it packs in a lot of frames, has less fog and allows us to play a game we all loved. Finally, check out our other gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
