19 August 2009
Summary: Primal is an adventure game for the Playstation 2 developed by Sony. The games story is really quite strange yet compelling, you play as Jen and her mission is to go and rescue her boyfriend Lewis who was kidnapped by a demon. She is approached by Scree who is a gargoyle who asks her to join him by travelling to a demonic new world and help him restore it to a peaceful state which is the only way she will be able to get her boyfriend back!
Pros: 2 playable characters, fun combat, good puzzles
Cons: Story a little basic, graphics arent spectacular
Summary: Primal is a kind of Action/Adventure game in which you play as a chick by the name of Jen, her party trick if you will, is that she can morph into 4 different types of demon in a chameleon like manner.

Pros: Looks great, plays well
Cons: Wouldn't go back and play it after you complete it
