REVIEW: TUROK: EVOLUTION (GAME BOY ADVANCE)

In its short time in the video game spotlight, Acclaim’s Turok franchise was a lot of things: A series of traditional first-person shooters, a multi-player focuses arena shooter, several side-scrollers and overhead action games mixed with beat-em-up and vehicular gameplay.

2002 saw the release of two major franchise sequels from Acclaim on the sixth generation of consoles.

What everyone was really looking forward to was Spider-Man’s debut on the sixth generation of consoles which was already announced to be the game that…

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 06/14/2013 Superman: The Man of Steel is bit of an oddity when it comes to comic book based games, as it was published by a company that had the rights to both the animated and comic book side of the character.
