PRIMAL!(sexy half-demon goth rock chick runs for Lara vote!),
This review is from: Primal (PS2) (Video Game)
Primal progresses through four realms in the Parallel world of Oblivion. In Each realm her appearence changes dramatically and each realm is ruled by either the forces of order or chaos, and something major is messing up the balance.
Unusually, unlike other games, which claim to be deep and fantastical and try to be as complex and open-ended as possible, Primal sesigners have devised a storyline, which is stuck to throughout the game, wearing it's linear nature with pride.
Reasons for buying it:
-Deep, dark and huge.
-Broad, intultive puzzles.
-Very nasty monsters.
Reasons for leaving it:
-Vague sense of being unfaithful to Mrs Croft
-Not a game that gets along with natural light.
-Where's the mini-gun?
(AS YOU SEE DIGGING HARD FOR BAD POINTS!)
Graphics/visuals: Gorgeous. Slinky characters, near-edible textures!
Sound: Alf soaring and dramatic. Decent acting!
Gameplay: Simple, fun. Combat a teeny bit simplistic.
Life span: Huge and linear. The save-anywhere option is great.
OVERALL SCORE AND THOUGHTS:
I give this 8.8/10 (88%)
-A finely crafted adventure, which reveals its depths gradually, unfolding at a pace to suit even the most fantasy-challenged.
