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.
It is at this time one can then observe the real game; and it is pretty f::uck::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.

...and the misunderstood manual camera rotation allows the player to faithfully recreate the experience of asw_elevator on any level, which is of course a great thing.

It’s nearly the same like the game „Dead Horde“. So everyone who loved the Game Dead Horde should buy Primal Fears too. You have other maps but the weapons and upgrates are the same.

For all those who don’t know „Dead Horde“ or „Primal Fears“:

Both games are Horror-Action-Shootergames. The view is third person like but with a little bit practise also first person shooter players will love it. You can play those games alone or with a coop-mate. If you have the possibility to use teamspeak, skype or steam-voicechat together it’s really fun (yeah sadly there is no voice communication in the game).

You can choose your weapon and with making money (from killing monsters or collecting) you can buy new weapons or you upgrate the once you have.

The enemies have different healthpoints and make different demage. You also never know how many enemies will spawn in the next moment. So you better take care of your own health and of course if you play coop also of your teammate!

Good luck and have fun!

Primal Fears is a huge improvement upon its predecessor Dead Horde. I enjoyed the first game but not without a ton of frustration as it was not optimized to say the least the lag was horrible even on lowest settings. However Primal Fears was a joy to play. Don't listen to the haters this is a fun little game. Not perfect but fun.

It's pretty obvious that this is a low budget game; but as far as low budget games go, very few are as mindlessly enjoyable as Primal Fears. There isn't a story arc, just a mission-based gameplay with various levels of difficulty, upgradeable weapons, and the ability to play with a friend (though there doesn't seem to be much in the way of lobbys to join and make friends).
