    No online servers i bought this game cause it had co-op but you can only play with your added friends on steam....very dissapointing because this game seems very fun "if you are playing with people" too bad they made this diffacult for people that are new to steam or dont have many friends on steam..

    The absurdly low reviews are completely undeserved. Its direct predecessor, Dead Horde, had good concepts, but was fatally flawed. Primal Fears kept the good concepts and fixed the fatal flaws. It's a simple game with little depth, but it's fun to play and it has a nice amount of tension (though Dead Horde did tension slightly better). I've never been a fan of the checkpoint system IThe absurdly low reviews are completely undeserved. Its direct predecessor, Dead Horde, had good concepts, but was fatally flawed.

I've never been a fan of the checkpoint system I think it's a very lazy way to design games but at least it works in Primal Fears. It was one of the severely broken pieces in Dead Horde. Now, it's true that it isn't innovative, but sometimes you just want more of something you like and I don't mind having a bit of new scenery in the zombie/alien isometric shooter genre. Expand

    Considering games like The Stanley Parable got 88 rating, while much more enjoyable and nice games got lower ratings, I'm thinking this game deserves more. The graphics are not that bad and the action is enjoyable. Most games nowadays have few people online to play with, unless they're cheap stuff like GTA or COD or Dota

    A generic top-down shooter that fails to deliver anything novel. [CD-Action 03/2013, p.76]

    Primal Fears does come with functional co-operative play, which isn't the worst time-killer if you and a friend are bored, but otherwise it's a disappointingly lacklustre title.

    If you played games like Alien Breed or Dead Nation you know what to expect. But be aware that even though the lighting and sound effects are nice, virtually everything else is below par.
