Critic Reviews for Far Cry Primal

It’s amazing how neatly the Far Cry formula fits into such a wildly different setting.

Far Cry Primal succeeds in transporting the Far Cry formula back in time and comes to the table with a quiver of neat ideas and a dangerous and fascinating open world. The visceral and varied combat is fun, the beast-based gameplay is a winner, and the lure of camp-claiming, gear-crafting, beast hunting, and resource gathering remains irresistible.

A leaner, hungrier Far Cry from a bygone age that falls slightly short of achieving its potential.

The prehistoric setting adds little to the Far Cry formula, while taking away several key features – even if the overall experience is still enjoyable.

Primal takes the great structure of the Far Cry series, but little of its character. No clear goal and a limited arsenal end up making this feel a little prehistoric itself.

Players who associate Far Cry with explosions and massive gunfights might find the setting disappointing, but it's one of my favorite entries in the series yet
