E3 06: Turok headlines BVG's E3 lineup

The House of Mouse will show the comic-based dinosaur hunter's return and two new Wii titles as part of its slate of games for the expo.

LOS ANGELES--Buena Vista Games (BVG) today pulled the wraps off its lineup for this week's Electronic Entertainment Expo, calling it the "largest and most diverse" collection of games the Disney interactive entertainment division has ever shown at E3.

While many of the titles have been recently announced and promoted by the developer (four new puzzle games, the Desperate Housewives game), there are still a few surprises. The biggest title on the list, Turok, was confirmed to be underway a year ago but hasn't been heard from since September, and even then it wasn't known what platforms would host the game. Now BVG has confirmed the story-driven first-person shooter is in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and set for a 2007 release.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 aren't the only next-gen consoles receiving attention from BVG. The publisher is also prepping a pair of games that will have versions appear on the Nintendo Wii, as well. Disney's Meet the Robinsons and Disney's Chicken Little: Ace in Action will both appear on the Wii, in addition to other current consoles. The full list of the company's announced lineup for the show follows below.

Turok uno on 64 was pimp....... T2 wasnt bad........all the others, not so good. It hasnt been treated like a top notch, high priority property since the first two. It could be great again with a little care and effort. Make it so!

Quit hating on the new Turok. Its not even developed by the makers of the old games when Acclaim published them.

Wasn't Turok rumored to be revived on the Wii? Doesn't look like that's happening now.... I always liked the first Turok game and remember it being one of the first shooters I ever played where the enemies reacted differently (and realistically) depending on where you shot 'em, e.g. a guy would grasp his neck and struggle for air if you shot him in the neck, etc.

As for the disney coments it doesn't matter how many there are if you don't like them don't buy them. As for nintendo needing there first party titles to be solid to launch the wii, When aren't nintendo games solid gold. It doesn't matter what games they have on launch anyway as long as the online downloads are up and runing you will have 5000 games to play right off the bat.

Are the disney bathrooms located in Activision's development rooms for Nintendo? Because there is a lot of crap on the Wii (stupidest console ever) and on the DS

Now i see why Nintendo got the " Just for Kids " Nickname, its not THEYR fault that Third party publishers want to bring this crappy games on theyr consoles! but they should be more selective ( or something like that ) with the games that come out on theyr consoles... that Sayed FIRST PARTY ( Nintendo ) Games are awesome. oh and DevJin, just look at SOUL CALIBUR 3, it didnt got the same attention that SC2 got because they released the damm game only on PS2.

"The last Turok was pretty bad, why make another?" Because the first two were incredible. Im doubting that BVG will deliver though.

Basically this publisher will not release any game on Nintendo platform unless it has the word Disney in its title.

"Imavnas: it was square enix that made Kingdom Hearts 2... *shakes head in pity* wow, 2 disney games for the wii... oh well. Besides, BVG sucks in general." BVG licensed the disney characters for use in KH2; http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/rpg/kingdomhearts2/index.html . Check out the box art, bottom left. Without BVG there wouldve been no KH2.

"Why is turok not coming on Wii... Everyone knows Turok is only good on Nintendo systems." Thats not true. The sequels to Turok 1 and 2; Turok 3 and the Turok multiplayer only game were for the N64 only, and they sucked on par with Evo.

BVG belongs to Disney people, its rather obvious most of their games would be based on Disney characters and stories. What I dont get is how a studio like BVG got their hands on Turok. It just seems like the franchise is in the wrong hands. BVG generally is KNOWN for making kids games, or disney based games (Kingdom Hearts 2 anyone?). They had an interview with current BVG developers of Turok on IGN and I must say im really annoyed at the fact that their making the dinosaurs neutral enemies instead of integrating them into the gameplay like Turok 1 and 2 did. They claim to be reviving the old 64 classics but they seem to be missing what made the original Turoks stand out so much, unique levels, unique enemies, and a pissed off Indian. Now your some sort of Commando (?) with indian heritage (weak) whos team crash lands on a planet thats being taken over by some sort of evil group of people (so unoriginal, =/ ), and while ur trying to prevent them from doing whatever it is their trying to do (take over the planet or something) dinosaurs will attack both parties....*sigh*... I smell turok evo again with shinier graphics.

Never played any Turok games. They never appealed to me. Maybe this one will change my stance.
