The Switch version also includes motion control, which at first felt like it had been tacked on at the last minute. However, with a little perseverance, it actually proves to be a decent way of controlling the smaller movements in the game. In a way, it is similar to how Splatoon handles its motion control, finer movements with motion and the larger movements with the right analogue stick. It works pretty well.
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter Remastered is the best possible way to experience this N64 classic, either on your TV or in Handheld/Tabletop Mode (where it performs flawlessly). Turok influenced a lot of first-person shooters that came after it, and it’s still very enjoyable in 2018—thanks in large part to Night Dive’s boatload of options. You don’t wind up hunting a lot of dinosaurs, but you do manage to fight a Dimetrodon that has a minigun strapped to its back, which makes up for a lot.
The lack of a proper story, inability to manually save your progress and sheer open nature of its level design will be something of a shock to players less experienced with the shooters of yore, but with a lick of new paint and some welcome motion controls, this piece of interactive history gets to live again on Nintendo hardware. It's arguably more interesting as a piece of history than it is an FPS shooter in 2019, but Turok is still worth a look if you're a fan of the genre.
