While I do get pretty nostalgic for this game, that's NOT the reason why I'm giving it a 5. I'm giving it a 5 because this game had just about everything that makes a great videogame.
The art direction was awesome, the storyline was competent, the gameplay really tested how good you are with its enemies and your adventuring skills for keys and other items, the weapons were imaginative and awesome, and for the time (1998), the graphics were really good. With many FPS titles today being derivative of each other, we need another shooter like Turok 2 or at least, an HD reissue of the N64 Turok games.
Finally, I'll say that nothing screams "awesome" like blowing up those yellow dinosaurs with a Scorpion Launcher or Grenade Launcher (with lots of gore) and their dismembered bodies screaming as the last traces of life exit them.
