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.

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

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.

Primal is worth playing, but only once you're hungry for more and only if you're prepared to plumb its depths.

Far Cry: Primal feels like one long, optional side mission.
