Primal Rage is a must for handheld fighting fans. It's a reptile rager for all.
Now Primal Rage has come to the Game Gear, and yes, it is right to question whether it has survived the translation. The answer is, surprisingly perhaps, yes. In many ways, the Game Gear version is even more impressive than the sixteen-bit versions.
Primal Rage auf dem Game Gear ist gut. Nicht mehr - aber auch nicht weniger. Wer wirklich beeindruckende 2D Prügeleien auf dem mobilen 8-Bitter sucht, kommt aber auch weiterhin nicht an der Anschaffung von Fatal Fury Special vorbei. Primal Rage bewegt sich im direkten Vergleich dazu nämlich einfach eine ganze Klasse darunter...

The Game Gear version obviously looks better since it's a color system, but I was especially impressed by Probe's ability to keep the original color schemes intact. The animation of the characters in both versions is obviously very limited, but the Game Gear cart is a credit to it's creators and the hardware.
The Video Game Critic
This portable translation of Primal Rage is nice on a technical level but don't expect much in the way of replay value.
So what do you have left when you have an ugly fighting game with terrible controls, the worst backgrounds imaginable, annoying sounds, limited characters and sluggish combat? Not a whole heck of a lot, which is why there's no reason to play Primal Rage on the Game Gear. The truth is, there's no reason to play Primal Rage period, but this Game Gear port is by far the single worst version of the game. Then again, I hear there's a Game Boy version of this game, perhaps we actually have a race for the bottom of the barrel.
