The reboot of the Turok series was awesome. You are pitted against both human enemies as well as dinosaurs, though this can be used to your advantage by pitting them against each other at various points throughout the story.

After the previous mission, Turok and Slade encounter a valley full of Hadrosaurs. They spot a cave on the other side of a bridge but a Giganotosaurus shows up to spoil your plans, as well as Utahraptors that continuously re-spawn. While Turok tries to take on the Giganotosaurus, Slade reaches the cave entrance and tries to get Turok over in one piece. When Turok does reach the cave, they jump in and realize that it’s home to the albino raptors, which Turok and Slade kill in order to make their way out of the caves.

Slade discovers a shotgun and uses the flare to distract a group of raptors. After this they are assaulted by countless more raptors until they reach the exit of the cave. As Turok makes his way to the level exit, and sees an enemy encampment being attacked by the raptors. You can either interfere or let one faction take care of the other, then kill the victor.
