    Story: This game actually has a story to it. A fighting game with a story, who knew. The story is: A meteor struck the Earth, and caused great chaos. Seven gods from ancient times awoke, and are now a...

    A Fun Game, but feels like a Mortal Kombat Rip-off

    Rated on May 21, 2008 by snakes3425

    On the surface Atari's Primal Rage, looks like a rather interesting game. But looking back at it today, it can best be described by two words: Rip-Off. The game that Primal Rage ripped off, none other...

    Released back in 1995, starting with the arcade version and then being ported onto multiple systems (i.e. Super Nes, Genesis, Playstation), Primal Rage has drawn a decent following and amassed both po...

    While trying to capitolize on Mortal Kombat's success - Primal Rage failed to do anything unique.

    But addictive

    Rated on February 23, 2006 by ratchetbja

    Like I said Broken but addictive simply because that was 11 years ago. I don't have a Genesis or a NES anymore and I am sure not many other people do anymore either. The game is the best example of ...

    Primal Rage is a very different, but very familiar, fighter for the Playstation.

    Rated on May 06, 2010 by ManaReaper

    Ah, arcade fighters. They ate up a lot of kids' coins back then. Not this kid's, we didn't have arcades where I lived, but we did have home consoles. Home consoles were becoming really popular and aft...

    A short, small 2D Fighter Arcade releassed for the Genesis.

    Rated on June 12, 2006 by SegaBeat

    Gameplay: Primal Rage was released at a time when, temporary obviously, blood and gore were featured in games as if it was okay. It was games like these (though Mortal Kombat was the prime offender...

    1 vs. 1 game and a really good one

    Rated on April 26, 2007 by DPumbliQ

    This game has some great class. While the selection of characters is limited there are territories you need to fight for to take over and gain believers. Monkeys and Dinosaurs are the main characters ...

    A short-lived, classic.

    Rated on March 29, 2008 by StillFreeTagger

    The early to mid-90s not only brought us the mascot war between Sega and Nintendo, it also brought us the fighting game craze. After Mortal Kombat lit a fire under the gaming industry with its blood ...
