Another sadly overlooked action game by eternal underdog DnS.
Much like other top-downs, the average knuckle-dragging ape will spend roughly five minutes playing this title before ragequitting. (The genre is not known to have a gentle learning curve and requires considerable patience)
Primal Fears can be especially frustrating to new-comers as it utilises a weapon upgrade system that does not initially seem intuituive. Your weapons also begin the game stupidly underpowered. (Think Killing Floor)
Howevers, as one progresses through the difficulties, the weapons DO get better. (ohai upgraded sentry^^)
It is at this time one can then observe the real game; and it is pretty ♥♥♥♥ing sick.
At it's best, primal Fears recalls classic Alien Swarm campaigns such as Tears for Tarnor, The beginning, and Paranoia.
Never did I feel the game suffered from locked door syndrome nor did the objectives ever feel forced, pointless, or otherwise stupid.
...oh and the misunderstood manual camera rotation allows me to turn any and all of these levels into asw_elevator. haytnxguise^^
