almost like playing a movie that has engaging combat too

  • Summary: This game is rather fun to play, even if it is linear, it feels expansive in begining lvls but soon is dialed back. Enemies are cool, but can be difficult for only being so often, graphics are very good n controls work out ok. Puzzles are repetitive but fighting gets changed up every lvl to break that up a bit and feel like the persona it takes on.

Primal: Average but beautiful.

  • Summary: Primal at its heart is a run-of-the-mill linear adventure. It's obvious the developers were going for the interactive movie experience. The gameplay in Primal is average but it's the story and the beautifully animated cut-scenes and quality voice acting that elevate this game from cookie-cutter adventure to an entertaining game. This is one of the best looking games on the playstation 2, with character models and animation unequaled by any other PS2 game.

Decent enough but sparse and sometimes boring

  • Summary: There's a good game lost somewhere in the maze of often-boring puzzles and confusingly huge map areas that is 'Primal'. An excellent, original storyline, likeable characters and a good control system can't save it from its flaws, however, and unfortunately this game never gets past Mediocre. In terms of general atmosphere and game-environment the closest comparison I can make is with 'Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver'.

Fun But Tiring

  • Summary: Unlike some i have seen no glitches in this game and find the story and great graphics enough to keep me interested. However this game quickly turns from action to puzzle solving and gets a bit boring after the first level. Great graphics and good controls but being a fan of fast paced shooters i found it a bit less than i hoped. RPG fans will love it and while im not saying i dont like it i am saying be sure of what you like before purchase.

Soul Reaver clone - NOT an RPG!

M. Sockel, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This game is pretty average, run from location to location, killing bad guys, solving puzzles in order to gain an extra power/ability at the end of the level. The levels are big, and this plays pretty much like Soul Reaver insofar that certain areas become available only once you've got the new power, and the next stage loads before you move into it, so there is no waiting time. The graphics are good, and it is playable.

OK...sort of

  • Summary: I think the designers were going for a sort of Lara Croft Tomb Raider, but with demons. It didn't work. It's not as good as the Tomb Raider Games and the fighing is hard to get right. However, the worlds were done well. All OK visually.

More sarcasm than Soul Reaver...

  • Excerpt: "...for improvement here. I said that Primal was a bit like Soul Reaver. Well…it’s actually VERY like Soul Reaver. I swear that even a couple of the sound effects are actually the same. The layout is very similar, and the huge size of the realms mean it takes ages to traipse from one end to another - especially if you’re dragging a stone gargoyle with you, no matter what diet he’s on. The supposed ‘fix’ to this problem is the rift gates (read ‘teleport’), ...
  • Pros: Will keep you out of mischief for quite a while, funnier than Soul Reaver
  • Cons: Can be repetitive in places, a couple of details need tweaking

  • Summary: I was looking forward to the day when my dad finally gave in and bought me the game... I got It.. I went running to my room room to play it.. I was so looking forward to it.. I waited ten minutes.. Thats how long the storyline at the beggining took.. Finally i got to the start I started running around to find a way to the next stage.. Ah I found it. no problem.. This went on and on it got so boring i laughed when she was getting killed it was so boaring..
