PROfilez: Turok 2: Seedz of Evil (N64)

- Best graphics at the time, still hold up to this day due to good animations
- Dismemberment and tons of gore, enemies react to getting shot or what weapon you're holding
- Giant enemies, all of them distinct and well designed
- Creative weapons like the Cerebral Bore, Tek Bow, Scorpion, Razor Wind and Shredder
- Incredible soundtrack and audio design
- World design is impressive, atmosphere is desolate and ominous
- Invented the weapon wheel that is illegally plagiarized even to this day
- "Frag Tag" (aka Monkey Tag) multiplayer mode is in a league of its own even to this day
- Black box and black game cart are very cool even to this day
- If I had three wishes, one of them would be for this game to be remade

- Extremely easy to get completely and utterly lost
- Despite weapon variety, the shotgun ends up being your go-to gun for most of the game
- Cannot kill the children you run into
- PC version lighting looks like shit (see: all of these screenshots, which are just full-bright, or 99% of the videos on youtube, which also feature the fucked-up emulated version. The real version is so god damned dark and spooky, you need to use the Flare Gun or flashlight to see)
