Primal
4 Star Review  GameZone - Mar 31, 2003

There are two sides to every person--a side of us that is seen by everyone and then a hidden side that many of us do not even know existed until it surfaces in the most unexpected ways or moments. For Jen Tate the moment of this discovery comes at the moment where her mortal body hangs on the balance between life and death. Her macabre discovery, though, is that her hidden side has a supernatural origin that is consumed by a savage and ancient power of an outer realm. In Primal, the battle to save the outside world--our world--lies in the hands of a girl just looking for her boyfriend.

3 Star Review  GameSpy - Apr 3, 2003

Sometimes a game comes along... and after playing it, you're pretty sure the development team was influenced by a specific game. No concrete proof -- just intuition. Well, the game that I think Primal was influenced most by is Ico. There are a lot of striking similarities. Of course, it's not fair to compare Primal to just one game, so I won't. When stacked up against the library of PS2 games, there are a lot of cool things it does well, and a number of other things it does poorly. After spending a lot of time with it, I'm pretty sure this is the kind of game a select audience will love dearly and everyone else will switch off quickly -- if they even notice it at all.

4 Star Review  IGN.com - Mar 24, 2003

From the moment we first laid eyes on Cambridge Studios' atmospheric action/adventure known as Primal, we knew that it had the potential to become something huge. Borrowing an art direction straight out of Clive Barker's Night Breed and matching it up with a gothic hardcore rock n' roll soundtrack, Sony's oft-delayed demon game is as genuinely appealing as it is sinister. And believe us; it's definitely sinister.

Primal for PS2
4 Star Review   By member ljwolfe - Aug 15, 2008   

Strengths: So far, the story is well writen and the voice acting is wonderful (which is what I expected from Andreas Katsulas *G*).

Weakness: Combat's a little wonky, but then I knew that going in.

One of the hidden gems of the PS2 library. I'm only a few hours in, but I already like these characters and want to find out what happens next. If you're a fan of Zelda-like exploration games, or just a fan of Andreas Katsulas who wants to get to know him in another role, then you'll probably enjoy this game.

5 Star Review   By member drsynful - Apr 12, 2003   

Strengths: The ability to change between characters in addressing the puzzles and challenges being presented is smooth and excellent.The layout is superb,detailing precise and map function is a definite must.

Weakness: The map function is limited. It is possible to clip into broken space when in plaza area, a minor fault.

It is a game that YOU won't put down, or be going to bed before 3am! The premise of rescue is an old one, but dealing with demons and a talking Gargoyle Scree is beautiful. There are times when only one character can do the deed, whilst the other must wait or rondevous elsewhere. Listen carefully to Scree - for he holds the secrets and also look very closely at the map. I liked it so much, I'm looking to book the primal 2!
