Primal is a underrated Classic
15 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 2003 I first became arrive of Primal on the Playstation 2 after seeing a review on "X-Play" I thought it look like to be a okay game.

It wasn't that long later that I was at Hollywood Video and saw Primal on the shelf and then I remember seeing the review of the game so I thought since it was here I would rent it and see how it was.

From the start the game has hold my complete attention. It's a shame that this game doesn't get the respect or the credit it deserves. Now here is my review of Primal on the Playstation 2.

The story begins with the main Protagonist Jennifer 'Jen' Tate voiced by Hudson Leick and her boyfriend Lewis being attacked by a huge monster and Jen is left for dead.

However a Gargoyle named Scree by Andreas Katsulas releases Jennifer's soul from her body. Her body is in a weaken state and Scree can help save her but he needs her help on a quest to reveal her density. She is the key to restore the balance in the Outside World Called Oblivion which contain Four Realms. She must restore the balance between Order and Chaos

She is also give Vambrances which will help her control her powers she learns that she can transform into four different Demon forms that she gains from visiting each of the four realms of Oblivion.

Now that's enough of revealing the story you should play it for yourself if you want to know more.

What makes Primal different than all other games at the time is that the game does have action but also requires you to think about what to do next.

Also the game puzzles are some of the most thought out puzzles for quite some time and makes you think it was inspired by the Resident Evil series. Some are a challenge and really requires you to push your gaming skills to the limit.

And combat will keep you on edge and because of Jen's power to transform into the demon forms from the realms she will be able to use the powers to her advantage but if she takes in too much damage she will lose her powers and Scree will need to restore her power with the souls of the defeated foes.

The graphics in the game are really well done with very good character designs and very dark level designs and some very good level design as well.

They really made the water, snow and fire look like they were real along with some good lighting for each level of the game.

The voice acting is amazing and when you listen to the performances of each actor and actress you can tell they were giving their A game to the game and you can really appreciate the voice acting in the game along with the story telling of the game.

The story is one of the best original stories in a video game and it just keeps your attention from the story and that's why I enjoy it so much.

Primal has become one of my favorite games and I would recommend it to anyone.

Overall Primal is a great game and a underrated gem if you can find it get it don't think about it get it.

With great story telling, powerful voice acting, strong graphics and interesting game play makes Primal a welcome attention to anyone's collection.

I give Primal an 8 out of 10
