GameSpot's Primal review scored the game a 7.9/10. GameSpot said Primal was a "showcase game" for the PS2 and "one that will particularly appeal to fans of other occult-themed action adventure games, such as the Soul Reaver series by Crystal Dynamics."

In December 2015, when the first PS2-on-PS4 games were released, PlayStation boss Shuhei Yoshida said Sony will work "tirelessly" to release even more PS2 games for PS4 "on a regular basis." The company is also asking for your suggestions for which games should be added.

On the subject of price points for the PS2-on-PS4 games, Yoshida said the emulation technology that makes it possible, among other things, doesn't necessarily come cheap. That's why Sony is charging $10-$15 for games you might already own.
