Advantages: gameplay , fun
Disadvantages: When you get tired of the comic parts, it's just another first person shooter
The first 2 Turok games for N64 were nothing really special, a couple of titles in a long list of the consoles average first person shooters, but Turok Rage Wars has a twist. This places the emphasis on the multiplayer game present in the previous titles, and works to good effect, creating lots of small levels with specific objectives. These range from normal combat (kill your enemies as much as you can), to boss levels (kill the boss as much as you can), to a sort of capture the flag, where you must find the flag and bring it back to your designated base without getting killed, to the fantastically original monkey tag. In this mode one player is designated as the monkey, in fact becoming either a lizard or chicken, and must reach the special point where they will return to normal form while someone else becomes the monkey, while everyone else trys to kill the monkey, whoever does so most times at the end winning.
Probably the best thing about Rage Wars, though, is the weaponary. After a while it becomes a little stale, but you can never really tire of seeing an enemy inflated till they burst, or left insanely big, just short of bursting, and waddling through the level. Alongside the inflater are the freeze gun, cerebral bore (a classic), chest burster, and much more, and while it all sounds like it should be quite sick, the game is in fact insanely funny. A real must have for both multiplayer and solo action.
