Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion is the fourth and final Turok game to be released on the Nintendo 64. Unlike 1999's Turok: Rage Wars, the game includes a storyline that happens to be a continuation of an ongoing saga. The Oblivion, a massive planet-destroying monster, is trying to wipe out the Turok line of warriors. Yet the power of the Turok is immense, so killing him is an arduous task. In an effort to weaken his resolve, the Oblivion has decided to target the siblings of Joshua Fireseed. By killing Danielle and Joseph Fireseed, the forces of evil seek to rule the universe.
In the game, the world rests on the shoulders of the two newcomers. As a result, the setup of the quest is structured differently from previous versions. Now the missions must be completed with both characters in Turok 3, and finishing the game with one character will affect the quest of the other. In addition, the two characters will have access to different weapons and abilities. Also of note is that roughly 20% of each level is only accessible by a single character. Both characters must be used in order to fully complete the game.
With Turok 3, the developers have focused on improving various aspects of gameplay. As a result, the save function is undergoing a big renovation. In the previous incarnation, the game relied on a save point system, meaning players had to find a specific locale to record the data. With this game, the player will now be able to save the game at anytime. Turok 3 also boasts an improved multi-player scenario by offering over 40 different battle arenas. The game will also include 24 weapons, in-game speech and 20 single-player levels. Turok 3 supports the Expansion Pak for high-resolution graphics, the Rumble Pak for vibration feedback, and the Controller Pak to save progress. The multi-player aspect allows up to four people to compete at the same time. ~ Bryan Melville, All Game Guide
