Primal by Sony

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • Summary: All in all, Primal isn't bad- it just could have used a bunch more fine tuning and polish. It tries to be many things but, as the old adage goes, it does none of them exceptionally well.
  • Pros: Lots of interesting elements and some great voice acting.
  • Cons: None of the elements are enough to put the game over the top.

  • Summary: One of those buzz words you hear bandied about in video game reviews is “originality”. Critics have always complained that games should offer something new, and not simply be a rehash of what is already on the market. Primal is one of those kinds of games that flies directly against this ideology, and yet manages to be a decent adventure game in the end. Instead of coming up with a completely new idea, Sony employed the best elements from a wide range of games. .

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: A definite rental, and a reluctant purchase recommendation. A story worth experiencing, but it's debatable whether or not you'll be able to stomach the ho-hum puzzle and fighting elements for the duration of the adventure.

  • Excerpt: Almost since the dawn of the home console market, Nintendo has been hailed as the king of the first party title. With smash hits like Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, Metroid and more, it was hard to dispute this claim. However, since the launch of the current generation consoles, a new company has stolen the thunder from the monster franchises of Mario and Zelda.

  • Excerpt: For the past year or so, industry analysts have been continually comparing the videogame industry to Hollywood. The similarities between the two are befitting to such a comparison, after all, both are forms of popular entertainment, both rake in money by the billions each year, and both are home to some of the most brilliant and creative minds in the world of digital artistry.

  • Excerpt: Primal is, in many ways, a perfect example of what familiarity with hardware, ample time spent in development, and a strong cast can offer in the way of interactive entertainment. It's also a shining example of what happens when a game is pushed out just a bit to early to catch some glaring bugs that could for many end the gaming experience before it ever has a chance to take hold.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: It's always entertaining to follow a game from its unveiling at E3 until its release. One such game is Primal , a game I had little to no interest in at last year's E3. It wasn't until I played the demo and did a hands-on preview that I began to get really excited about the game. From beginning to end, Primal is a game that can be defined by its high production values.
