Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite shooters and Far Cry 4 did take things to new heights with its Himalayan setting, so when I heard that a new game is being created in this series I was beyond excited. But maybe the best thing about it is that Far Cry Primal takes us back to the stone age. I think this is one of the most unused settings for games!
The story here is interesting, you play the role of a hunter in the Mesolithic period and you need to unite the tribes under your own power, something that might be easier said than done.
The coolest thing when it comes to Far Cry Primal is the fact that it has a massive open world that you can peruse as you see fit and at the same time it’s filled with wildlife. Not only that, but you can tame lots of animals which include sabertooths as well as owls in order to help you with your endeavor. Combine that with the fact that you are facing a state of constant survival then you will surely appreciate and enjoy the gameplay in all of its glory.
Even if the language is fictional and created specifically for the game, you can still find lots of stuff that you liked from the previous entries in the series. You have melee weapons that can be used at your own perusal and at the same time you can also craft items if you so desire, and these items can really help you as you play.
You also need to hunt for food and create fire, not to mention that you will need to manage your tribe at times. Players also have the ability to protect their tribe from animals which are very dangerous at night.
Even if the game doesn’t feature multiplayer like the other titles in the series, I feel that Far Cry Primal does bring in a lot of promise. It makes the experience fun and refined without damaging it, even if some do love the multiplayer.
I liked the fact that they went with a new time period and theme because prehistoric times are rarely the subject in modern games, which makes it a really nice time investment. Since many of the normal Far Cry features are still there, such as the massive open world and exploration, there’s no denying that Far Cry Primal has a lot to offer.
Graphics are very good here and I feel that the game does a great job when it comes to delivering a really good gameplay and user experience, which is what matters the most in the end. Far Cry Primal is an astounding game with plenty of quests, locations and gameplay moments to be had. You should totally check it out, it’s an amazing experience so do not hesitate and give it a try!
