Game review

Set in a world ravaged by a meteor strike, the game's story revolves around seven ancient gods who have awakened in the form of colossal, prehistoric creatures. These beasts are worshipped by the remnants of humanity, and they battle each other to gain control of the post-apocalyptic world, known as "Urth." The game's lore and setting provided a rich backdrop to the intense combat, adding depth to the overall experience.

Primal Rage's gameplay is typical of fighting games, with players selecting a character and battling against opponents in one-on-one matches. Each character has a unique set of moves, including special attacks and combo possibilities. The game was notable for its use of stop-motion animation to create the characters, giving them a distinctive and realistic appearance, especially in comparison to the sprite-based graphics typical of the era.

The combat mechanics in Primal Rage were unique for their incorporation of creature-like movements and attacks. The characters could bite, claw, and use their natural abilities in battle, differentiating the game from other fighters that primarily featured human characters. This aspect, combined with the gory and visceral combat, made the game stand out among its contemporaries.

Primal Rage faced some controversy upon its release due to its graphic violence and certain special moves that were considered provocative. This led to varied reactions from the gaming community and censors, but also contributed to the game's notoriety and appeal among players looking for a more mature fighting game experience.

Game's blend of traditional fighting gameplay with a distinctive prehistoric twist has earned it a place as a cult classic among fans of the genre.
