    That said, I absolutely loved my time with Primal though and to see a game set in this time period, with no guns, and with high production values just seems completely experimental and bold.

    Far Cry Primal is the Stone Age survival game we never expected from the Triple A industry, complete with a lush prehistoric world you can explore for hours.

    In a certain way, Far Cry Primal remains faithful to the original open-world formula, but somehow, in the Prehistoric Age, the freedom of the player really shines at its brightest. Ubisoft didn't waste resources on the multiplayer, and focused instead on a solid and intriguing story mode, immersed in a world so raw and savage to become majestic. A true far cry from what we usually play.

    Far Cry Primal is a fantastic departure from the usual FPS adventure. While it is formulaic, in a Far Cry sense, a rich and detailed world, as well as tons to see and do, make this an adventure worth taking.

    Far Cry Primal is a healthy, well-designed, immensely immersive experiment within an established franchise. Bottom line is we need more developers to take such risks. The result is indeed a fantastic experience due to the blending of multiple genres - survival, adventure, action, first-person, strategy, etc. - and the retaining of a familiar, tried-and-true formula.

    I don't want every Far Cry game from here on to trade bullets for arrows, motorcycles for tigers, but Primal is an invigorating example of how to reimagine a tired franchise while keeping its soul intact.
  14. I don’t know where the series goes from here – perhaps a lone astronaut crashing on an inhospitable planet filled with alien animals who think he looks pretty tasty? – but after Primal I’m suddenly excited again to see what Ubisoft Montreal’s Far Cry team comes up with.

    A wonderful trip to the Stone Age. Far Cry Primal is a wild and visceral video game, and that makes its attractive. It has all the typical formulas of the sandbox games, but it also shows new good ideas and mechanics. The animals and the magic make it so that you don't want to put down your console controller. It's addictive and realistic.
  16. Feb 22, 2016

    Far Cry Primal is a great example of trying new things in a smart and relatively safe manner, demonstrating how a popular series can keep itself invigorated. While other venerable franchises like Call of Duty are afraid to challenge themselves and make only halfhearted gestures toward invention, Primal plots a course through uncharted waters with a battle-tested vessel and actually commits to making its new ideas more than vapid window dressing. The result?...You can ride on a goddamn bear. Enough said.

    To domesticate beasts and fight with them is amazing, but the game system can be repetitive. A game developed for fans of the franchise who are seeking a change in the atmosphere.

    Far Cry Primal is an authentic survival prehistoric adventure in a rich and hostile environment. Even if it doesn't have the best story in the series, the use of the animals and the primitive weapons are some of the features that make it a fresh and fun experience.

    Far Cry Primal is yet another great open-world action game, but it still is very similar to the other episodes of the franchise. The setting could have delivered something different, but at the end of the day it's a good experience.

    The setting used to disguise the Far Cry we’ve already seen is fresh and wonderful, it’s easy to sink into this wild, beautiful, majestic world. Primal was put together skillfully, it’s not an outstanding game, but it’s so enjoyable that I devoured it hour after hour with an appetite of a cave bear. [04/2016, p.28]

    The Primal’s greatest news in comparison to fourth installment is in its prehistoric setting. The whole charm of the game depends on it – if riding a saber-toothed tiger doesn´t catch you, the world of Oros has no other benefits compared to Kyratu. [Issue#262]

    Far Cry Primal is able to stand out from the pack, throwing in enough new and appealing additions along the way to warrant a full-game release.

    Far Cry Primal is exclusively a prehistoric theme park. It isn’t ashamed to admit and declare that there isn’t something even remotely reminiscent of a story in the game. But all else is nicely implemented in-game and the theme is so intriguing that, really, there is no need for something else.
  30. Mar 1, 2016

    It is all thoroughly enjoyable. If you have had your fill of Ubisoft’s open-world template, much of Primal may give a sense of ennui. But for me, stripping it down to focus on hunting and gathering, while removing heavy ordnance and vehicles, gives it a calmer rhythm. It is slower and more methodical, with you soaking in the splendid prehistoric world Primal provides. It isn’t the future of the genre, but you will have plenty of fun knocking around in its vision of the past.
  31. Feb 28, 2016

    The new prehistoric setting is amazing: swapping armed soldiers for tribesmen, a rifle for a bow and arrow, and er, regular elephants for woolly elephants - it all creates a very different atmosphere...However a lot of the game feels like déjà vu for anyone who’s played the previous one. The same setup of missions, the forming of alliances and expanding your territory, the same crazy-old guy character with a dead animal on his noggin, and even the same hallucinogenic discovery missions are all lifted straight from it. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make Primal feel like a spin-off rather than it’s own game.
  32. Feb 28, 2016

    Overall this has been one of my favourite and most original gaming experiences in recent months. The game has taken the open world genre and given it a nice twist by taking place in 10,000 BCE. The world looks stunning, but at the same time it feels bleak and violent.
  33. Feb 26, 2016

    For the series, the game is a confident step toward something much more disciplined and understatedly profound.

    Like the similarly experimental Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Primal takes a torch to the established Far Cry template, yet it still feels every inch a Far Cry game. The graphics, controls, hunting, map and resource-collection are all recognisable – to such a striking extent that it makes you wonder what it would be like to play through an old version of Far Cry, using just the bow and ignoring all vehicles. Whether by accident, design or an emotive response to criticism of Far Cry 4, Ubisoft, via Primal, has given the franchise a huge new shot of vitality and freshness.

    Minor issues aside, I do think this is the best Far Cry game.

    Ubisoft carries on with the traditional Far Cry recipe that's used this time in a prehistoric setting. The game has its ups and downs and mainly relies on proven features which could prove boring to the players, a bit like an Assassin's Creed game.

    Far Cry Primal offers fresh and revamped atmosphere, but very little in terms of new mechanics. Thankfully, the core gameplay is still immensely satisfying, especially in later stages. Overall, Primal marks a step in the right direction for the Far Cry series.

    Gameplay might be repetitive at times, and the combat system is not bright or innovative as we hoped. Still, the Oros region is just wonderful, and halfway through the game the evolution of the character and of the villages really starts clicking in.

    Yes, Far Cry with dinosaurs would have been cooler, but you have to respect what Ubisoft Montreal’s accomplished here: deftly using a low-tech setting to craft a counterintuitively breakneck adventure with that same “human pinball” feel. Far Cry 4 did it with ultralights and wingsuits; Primal manages with crazier wildlife and tighter crafting ties to the setting, not so much advancing as streamlining the elements that have made the series so deep and yet easy to drop into or out of.
  42. Feb 22, 2016

    If you like Far Cry, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll like this as well. But if you’re becoming exhausted by ~20 hours of leveling, skinning, leaf-collecting, trinket-finding and map-clearing after the last few installments, Primal is definitely more of the same. The setting change is effective, but this isn’t going outside of the series’ comfort zone as much as Ubisoft might have you believe.
  43. Feb 22, 2016

    It’s a refreshing take on a tried and true layout that manages to set up a solid structure within its sandbox environment. This is one of the good ones.

    The newest installment in the Far Cry franchise runs into a few hiccups, most namely its tiring combat system. The new taming/companion system is well executed and Ubisoft has crafted a respectable amount of detail with their sculpture of 10,000 BCE. While it sometimes feels like just more Far Cry, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
  45. Feb 22, 2016

    Far Cry Primal is like lobster macaroni and cheese. Comfort food elevated by trying something different, and as a result it mostly succeeds. Taking out the guns and vehicles (unless you count the bears) and keeping the story simple were bold, smart choices for a franchise that could have easily wore out its welcome. Ironically, for a game set so far in the past, it's the past that occasionally holds back Far Cry Primal from true greatness. Nevertheless, this game is a breath of fresh air for both the franchise and first-person action games in general.

    Melee combat can be disorienting and the story isn’t all that memorable. Still, Far Cry Primal nails what it does right. Beast Mastery is a great new mechanic, the presentation is fantastic, and most importantly, it feels just like a Far Cry game. Woolly mammoths may have gone extinct, but Primal ensures that the Far Cry franchise won’t follow suit.

    It would be easy to define Far Cry Primal as more of the same, and while that is somewhat true, it's also a meaningful step away from the things that defined Far Cry 4. Not all of it is good, and the somewhat lackluster story and characters will dampen the mood for some. It is however a great universe to explore, with stunning visuals, a lot of things to do, slick combat, and, most of all, some really great animals to hunt and tame.
  49. Feb 22, 2016
    80
    Although the emphasis on bow hunting and woolly mammoths can give a bit of a Skyrim vibe, that quickly fades as you gain full mastery over the protagonist's ability to summon a variety of deadly beasts into combat. The writing fails to make its primitive heroes anything more than one-note lunks, but the primordial nature of the game world complements the action and ultimately makes up for the underwhelming story.

    Far Cry Primal is an interesting variation of the popular Ubisoft franchise. The new ideas and gaming mechanics are fun and well-developed, but the close combat system could have been better. If you're looking for a nice adventure with a lot of exploration, crafting and animal taming, you'll enjoy this game.
  51. Feb 22, 2016

    That focus on primitive times can become a hindrance at certain points, with limited tools and repetitive combat, but in the end, Far Cry Primal stays true to its callous setting, fleshing out every layer of the captivating world it creates.

    With Far Cry Primal, Ubisoft delivers an open world game that feels both thrilling and exciting at the same time. Taming beasts is awesome, but sadly the story is not. Still, the game feels like a solid new entry in the franchise.

    The visceral and varied combat is fun, the beast-based gameplay is a winner, and the lure of camp-claiming, gear-crafting, beast hunting, and resource gathering remains irresistible. It’s weakened, however, by a disappointing lack of investment in its story, some often forgettable quests, and its vanilla villains, which unfortunately combine to make Primal feel like a step back from the memorable moments of Far Cry 3 and 4.
  54. Mar 1, 2016

    Far Cry Primal takes players to an era rarely visited in modern gaming and does so convincingly. Any fan of the series would love it and many would likely argue it’s the best we’ve seen from Far Cry thus far.
  55. After all these years, Far Cry is taking a risk: The Stone Age. Combat and pet systems are very interesting and enjoyable but the game is too easy. You won't "try to survive" in Far Cry Primal. Instead, you will crush the game very early and easily.
  56. Feb 22, 2016
    77
    Far Cry Primal does little to reinvent the series' established formula, sometimes taking it backwards more than its new time period may suggest. It's filled to the brim with the familiar and fun Far Cry trappings, if that's what you want out a game. It's an enjoyable, gratuitously violent romp in the past. If you're looking for some sort of narrative impetus tying it together though, you're bound to be a little disappointed.
  57. Feb 22, 2016
    76
    When the freshness of a Far Cry in the Stone Age becomes rotten -and luckily that takes quite a few hours- you’ll realise you’re once again routinely finishing off copious amounts of icons on a huge map. With a little extra time and effort Far Cry Primal could’ve been better than part 4, but now it’s an enjoyable spin-off that feels somewhat like a mod.
  58. Feb 22, 2016
    75
    Hunting and taming wild animals is a great experience, but it is the only big new feature in this game. The fighting misses depth and impact, and most of the gameplay simply feels to familiar. The game is entertaining, but together with the thin story Primal is just too average.
  59. 75
    Far Cry Primal evolves the series through devolution, bringing an incredible prehistoric landscape to gamers in 2016. Consequently, the focus on authenticity draws a disconnect from the player and fails to offer relatable characters or a meaningful narrative.
  60. Feb 22, 2016
    73
    Far Cry Primal shows us that gaming still has plenty of interesting worlds to take us to. Its Stone Age setting really is its best quality. Sadly, the series’ formula is beginning to feel familiar and, frankly, a little dull. The first-person combat is tedious, and I think I’ve cleared out enough enemy camps for one lifetime.
  61. Apr 12, 2016

    Ubisoft has recycled many ideas from previous titles and adapted them to the Stone Age, which is why Far Cry Primal features repetitive gameplay and unmemorable missions. Even so, it is a very bold gamble, with a renewed graphics and a big change for the Far Cry series, being more stealth oriented.

    The fourth Far Cry put on an animal skin and tried a prehistoric act. However, virtually nothing has changed under the surface –good news for the fans but bad news for those who hoped for significant changes. Luckily the core mechanics of the original still work well.

    Clubs and spears instead of firearms, and mammoths instead of cars. Far Cry Primal is a well-made and interesting take on the Far Cry formula, but in the end it just is not as good as the third and fourth installment.

    Designed as "Ubisoft: A sandbox game", Primal fails to reach the bar set by its predecessors. The game world is vast and rich with details, but the game never actually motivates you to push the story mode to its conclusion.

    Far Cry Primal is an incredibly interesting game that really nails the feeling of danger and survival at times. The game’s nearly non-existent, thin plot and tedious crafting system however hold it back from being great.

    Far Cry: Primal is an example of how ambition doesn't always translate to success. It's overly familiar and overly safe, and it does little with its concept.

    70
    Far Cry Primal is a perfectly entertaining game, but it’s a hard one to get too excited about, especially when it seems as if only a few twists would’ve turned it into something considerably more interesting. As it is though it suffers from needlessly basic storytelling and a general lack of vision. Although it’s no disaster it does feel like a backwards step for Far Cry, and gives no real hint as to what its evolutionary future could or should be.
  70. Feb 22, 2016
    70
    The game is greatly hindered in two key areas. First its story is nothing short of terrible. Second, and I think far more detrimental, is that it sticks dangerously close to the two games before it. From a pure technical standpoint, the game is sublime. It plays beautifully and is still an incredibly enjoyable game. But the lingering feeling like you’ve done all of this before never left me throughout my time with the game. And for a game that’s supposed to take place over 10,000 years ago that’s a problem.
  71. Feb 22, 2016

    The land of Oros is beautiful and full of life. That entertainment does not reach very far though, because human enemies can hardly be found and the story is a disappointment. Far Cry Primal offers the same action as its predecessors: an awesome feeling of hunting but gameplay that does not feel new.
  72. Feb 22, 2016
    70
    Far Cry Primal is instantly pleasing to the senses and great to play. Stone Age is a really interesting setting and the whole map offers a lot of content and some great supporting characters. But from a certain point, you realize that the game lacks a solid story, charismatic antagonists, and that it's very repetitive.
  73. Feb 22, 2016
    70
    Far Cry: Primal stands out as a game with an original, really well crafted world but in the end leaves quite a bit to be desired. Using primitive weapons, taming wild animals and observing interactions between all the inhabitants of Oros can be really fun. It's a pity that the game has a very weak storyline and copies gameplay mechanisms from previous installments. As a result, your view of Primal will depend on your feelings towards older Far Cry games.
  74. Feb 22, 2016
    70
    Far Cry Primal really wants you to know that there are tons of things you can do in its prehistoric, open world. Unfortunately, you may not want to do any of them.
  75. Feb 22, 2016
    70
    If you were hoping for more of a revolution to the formula, or didn't particularly enjoy the hunting mechanics in past games, then you're best off steering clear of this title. Of course, if you're merely looking to jump back into the familiar Far Cry gameplay loop in a captivating open world, then there's still plenty of fun to be had. And at the end of the day, who on Earth doesn't want to ride around on a bear?
  76. Feb 22, 2016

    While Far Cry Primal is a well-made experience, one I enjoyed a great deal, it oftentimes had me thinking about the routine the series has settled into, and envisioning a future where the Far Cry formula may not be as compelling as it once was, no matter how extraordinary the setting.

    Beneath this wildly altered aesthetic, for better or for worse, Ubisoft is still playing it safe. Personally, I found Primal to be far more entertaining than Far Cry 4, but even then it’s hard to overlook the series’ systematic regurgitation of ideas and concepts.

    Compared to recent Far Cry games, Primal is neither a relief nor a disappointment. It's really good at being violent open-world base-conquering simulator and it has a smattering of neat toys. Far Cry Primal is another One Of Those with a few wild tangents stretching and searching for new limitations. It's a predictable, albeit competently constructed, status quo machine humming along through another entry.

    In the end the new abilities, like taming animals and riding them, are great additions to the game, but they just aren't enough to save Far Cry Primal from being a fairly average and mindless adventure in a time long forgotten.

    Primal takes the great structure of the Far Cry series, but little of its character. No clear goal and a limited arsenal end up making this feel a little prehistoric itself.

    Ultimately, the lack of a gripping story or any standout characters strips a bit too much from the experience. It’s a solid effort that opens up more possibilities for first-person action, but without the highs a strong narrative could have afforded the game, it is left feeling a bit bare.

    If Disney would build a prehistoric theme park, this would be the blueprint. You can tame the wildest animatronics with one button, blinking areas show you where to go or what to do next and everybody makes you feel as happy as possible, thus cancelling out any sense of danger. Unfortunately the atmosphere suffers as much as the challenge. This could have been an important step for the franchise but instead marks its low point.

    Is it a good game? That’s the wrong question. The truest thing about Far Cry Primal is that above all else, and at the expense of all else, it’s an effective game.

    Far Cry Primal is video game aspirin — numbing, and nondescript, but basically pleasant.

    By far, the most satisfying element in Far Cry Primal has to be beast taming, regardless of how absurd it appears in action.
  3. Feb 24, 2016
    The nagging sense of never quite doing enough, of leaving so many red and orange spots on the map unresolved, doesn’t ever go away, and the plethora of options has the unfortunate effect of robbing the game’s slight story of what little tension it might have had.
  4. Mar 2, 2016
    Far Cry Primal is best played through subtraction. First thing, go into the options menu and turn off the mini-map. Takkar certainly doesn’t have a map, and using one is distraction that detracts from the beauty and horror of Oros. Ignore the extraneous missions, the ones that rely on formula and filler by, say, having you kill the same two warriors to save the same kidnapped Wenja. Seek out the upgrades you find most useful and skip the rest. Ignore the completion percentages. Take it slow.

    I'm really happy Ubisoft decided to try something different with this one.

    This is the best Stone Age game ever done, makes you feel like you are back in time surrounded by this incredible nature and animals.

    The game looks great, and it sounds amazing, the open world is vast with tones of things to do.
    Another great and fresh addition to the Far Cry games!!

    Though tons of haters are **** about no guns and no vehicles,but I am glad that Ubisoft has the balls to do a game like this.The charactersThough tons of haters are **** about no guns and no vehicles,but I am glad that Ubisoft has the balls to do a game like this.The characters and voice acting is fantastic,you really do feel like you are in the stone age.
    The graphics is worse than Far cry 4 in some part,but the nighttime is stunning.
    Love the crafting and resource gathering elements,you need to find everything and make everything by yourself.
    The boss fight is better in the game,finally not another QTE battle or just a decision .
    The new beast master system is good but feels too op sometimes,cause the beast can kill many enemies by themselves.Also,this Farcry feels like it's been rush out the door too quickly,cause it has zero multiplayer.
    It will be amazing if this game have Co-op or a PVP mode.
    The game is more like a survival game with a story than a FPS game.
    And in animations,terrain,animals model,water effect.this game do feels like a reskin of FC4.I really hope Ubisoft don't do this again with the next Farcry game.
    Overall,the game is good,not a supereb game to surpass FC3 and FC4,but not a complete failure like AC unity or watchdogs.

It is indeed a pretty game with a peculiar setting, but lacks any soul. The gameplay is repetitive to hell and makes you feel like doing the same thing all over again.
    There some interesting components for this game but overall its just the same mechanics from the other Far Cry games. The story is absolutely generic and a chore. Taming animals seems like a cheap way of playing once you reached the higher levels. In fact there is hardly any weapons in this game and you just become dependent on the animals.
