Those looking for a close arcade translation can't do better than Primal 3DO. But it still won't convert those who never took to the arcade original.
The Video Game Critic
The graphics are crisp, and the creatures are much larger than the SNES or Genesis versions. The active volcanoes and devastated city skylines in the backgrounds are really fun to look at. The controls are responsive as well, although I don't like how the game pauses momentarily when a match ends to load the "victory" animation. This 3DO version of Primal Rage also includes video intros for each character, but frankly, these are awful. Poorly narrated and badly pixelated, you wonder why they even bothered. The game displays statistics and high scores, but sadly, these aren't saved when you power the system off. Overall, I'd have to say this is an above average version of a below average fighter. 2D fighter fans should take note, but casual gamers can look past this.
