A meteor struck the Earth, and caused great chaos. Seven gods from ancient times awoke, and are now attempting to take control of the post-apocalyptic world.

Primal Rage is a one-on-one fighting game featuring dinosaurs and giant apes as the fighters. The graphics are done with digitized stop-motion animation. Gameplay is similar to Mortal Kombat in that it is viewed from a side perspective, and features deadly finishing moves at the end of the match.

Continuing with the Mortal Kombat fiasco, Nintendo censored this game as well. Chaos' Golden Shower finishing move (you can figure it out) has been 'fixed' so that a CENSORED bar appears across the screen and Chaos freezes in his 'relief' position.

Planned sequel

There was going to be a sequel, Primal Rage 2, but due to poor sales it got cancelled. However, Atari felt it needed a sequel in one form or another, so a book written by John Vornholt, called Primal Rage: The Avatars, was created instead of a second game.
