Critic Reviews


“Is this a full release, or should it be a third of the price? Far Cry fans, allow me to ease the ambiguity and confirm Primal is more than lavish remix. However, it lacks the innovation and evolution that’s to be expected of Far Cry 5, comfortably slotting in somewhere in-between as a typical spin-off.”

Primal carries over all the adventuring and battling of previous Far Cry games, but emphasizes on a genre rarely touched in gaming.

“Looking objectively at Far Cry Primal as an isolated product, it is impossible to deny that it is indeed quite good, but it is not a completely isolated game. The fact that so much content from Far Cry 3 and 4 is recycled means that there may be players who find it overly familiar, and that is the biggest problem we had with Primal. The lack of any multiplayer option will also disappoint some, but Far Cry has always been mainly a solo experience. In short, if you still think you have more Far Cry in you, and if you appreciate the survival theme of the Stone Age, Primal is a safe bet..”

In the tall grass, I’m stalking the Udam as they escort a captured member of my tribe through this forested area. I’m definitely capable of taking them down; I have more arrows than I need because all I have to do is make sure the one that’s readied goes straight through his skull – it’s simple. Well, it’s simple right up until the point where a very cross jungle cat takes exception to my presence and attacks me, alerting the rival tribesman and a nearby bear to my location. Luckily, I dispose of the jaguar with a few flaming arrows and a couple of blows to the head with my club, while the bear has some Udam for lunch.

The first person shooter genre has seen a large shift in focus to modern or futuristic style games over the last few years, mostly leaving the past behind.

For a game that’s set some ten thousand years before its modern counterparts, Far Cry Primal feels incredibly familiar. In the coming days you’ll no doubt see words like “reskin” and “mod” being flung around as commentators look to sum up Primal in as few reductive syllables as possible, but even though it has a lot of common ground with other games in the series, Ubisoft Montreal has managed to create something that feels surprisingly substantive, even if it isn’t entirely refreshing.

Diamonds played a pivotal role in the story of Far Cry 2. In a war-torn African state on the brink of collapse, these jewels were prized items of great importance. They could be used to broker a false peace between two warring factions, allowing the warlords to continue their senseless bloodshed without interference from the outside world. Or they could offer someone a chance to escape that hellhole, providing a valuable asset to bribe border agents for safe passage.

The Far Cry franchise has never been afraid of change. Far Cry 2 aimed to be more realistic then the original, Far Cry 3 focused heavily on its story and villains, and Far Cry 4 took the setting out of lush jungles and into the frozen mountains. Far Cry Primal, however, easily takes the cake for biggest change to the franchise yet. Taking players back to 10,000 BCE, Primal ditches its guns, explosives and cars for bows, spears and wild animals. Is Primal a step forward for Far Cry, or is this an extinction event?

Far Cry returns, but trades in its modern day mountains for a prehistoric setting. But can its tribal foes and mystical creatures match up to the guns and honeybadgers we know and love?
