Excerpt: Fight like an animal! Primal Fury, called Bloody Roar Extreme in Japan, is a traditional 3D polygonal fighter that boasts a brawling style similar to that of Fighting Vipers. The twist is that each of the game's 16 characters can transform from human to beast shape and take on new fighting abilities..
Excerpt: In Bloody Roar: Primal Fury , you take on the role of a Zoanthrope, a person who can change into a beast/man hybrid, in the Champions' Tournament. While this current tournament has been brought about because of experimentation on the Zoanthropes, each of the combatants have a different reason for being there, ranging from personal gain to a desire to find out about the experimentation.
Pros: Looks really good, Easy to pick up and play, Variety of basic modes
Cons: Needs more arenas, Arcade mode could be longer, Music is pretty weak
Conclusion: Bloody Roar: Primal Fury despite those few drawbacks, shows that 3D tournament fighters on the Nintendo GameCube can easily make for an enjoyable experience. Great gameplay, easy to learn interface, impressive presentation and the magic that makes Bloody Roar games a shy away from most games of the same genre. It is definitely an experience worthy of anyone's time and isn't too intensive making it easy to pick up and play from the get-go at anytime.
Excerpt: Bloody Roar: Primal Fury is a major step above the PS2 version. Sure, it's not as pretty as some other recent fighters, but when you see the beautifully rendered backgrounds (complete with animated features such as water and torches), combined with large, detailed fighters there's not much to complain about either. Some very impressive special effects, combined with a smooth frame-rate top off a very nice presentation.
