Pretty good

This game is basically Far Cry 4 but in the stone age. Same annoying eagles but no firearms. I didn't like it as much as FC4, but it's still pretty good. There is no currency or vendors so looting enemies is boring when you already have the max amount of leaves and stuff. The owl is awesome though!

A Fatal Force

The setup, look and feel of this game is completly amazing, if this game had multiplayer with like Tribe VS Tribe type deal i'd easily drop $100+ on this game! however without multiplayer the current price is perfect! 🙂

Pretty Good

Great graphics, acting, and story. Love using stealth to complete missions, and combat is satisfying (against humans, anyway). If you're looking to achieve 100%, the game can become repetitive. I think I should have started on a higher difficulty but I have no desire to replay after beating it. While few games can tout their realism, a lot of effort went into immersing the player in the land of Oros. Unfortunately, for me, things like taming critters with a slab of meat, using UV / thermal vision, and scouting with an owl all break that immersion. I try to use these features as seldom as possible but I'm not sure I could have completed it without them - but I could suck at video games. Could use more recipes and things to upgrade / build; skins became useless early on for me. Swimming in pitch black caves is a nightmare. Every animal trying to kill me gets real old real fast. Overall, Farcry Primal is extremely entertaining and I would recommend trying it.

Another great addition

This game exemplifies what Ubisoft can do to even a well established series such as Far Cry. I really wondered where the next game would go and I am very happy to say that 9000 B.C. is a great place to experience all that the series has grown to offer. The tameable pets that serve as mounts as well as protectors are amazing. While some even grant bonuses to the gameplay! The visual experience is captivating and a real pleasure. I found the controls to be extremely effective and the same as others in the series. The Owl is a tremendous asset and adds quite a bit of fun to the gameplay. The plot is fresh and interesting enough to keep you playing. I would be hard pressed to find something to grumble about or complain over. Highly recommend.

Twinkie Slayer

Platform: Xbox


Great escape from the repetitive multiplayer fps. Great open world play which provides hours of play. Dislike: Some side mission can be a little confusing and some customization would have been nice.

One of the best games ever

One of the best games I played ever. The game immediately draws you into the story with an amazing hunt to start with. Lots of awesome detailed prehistoric animals. Lots of quests and mini quests in a large open environment ranging from sunny fields to cold winter mountains. The caves are dazzling and well thought out environments where you can dwell for ages. The combat system is fun and addictive. Can play this one for a long time.

Calling all Cavemen

Just what you would expect from a Far Cry game. Depth, intelligent story and gameplay. Graphics are great and controls are reliable. These games by Ubisoft take me places where I have always wanted to go.
