This one is confusing - it's indy, but the developers put in enough effort to make an FPS for PC - or a TPS for console... but they made a top down game because, I dunno, they thought the target audience was Atari 2600 owners on Steam? Not sure.

Anyway, a lot of effort went into producing mediocrity here. The game runs technically flawlessly - lovely 3D top down graphics, could have passed in any 3D format, so the effort was totally there. But there's nothing to do - if you go into the single player game, all they do is insist you invite other players to suffer as well, which is a bit weird because I'm pretty sure they would realise the majority of players they attract are people who got the game in a bundle and tried it out, and would never inflict it on others. You don't get enough points to start the game without making others suffer first. Wow. That's pretty goth, I guess?

Think before you spend so much effort on writing a quality game for nobody, guys!

EDIT 1: See below for updated review
EDIT 2: See below that for final review

Original Review:
There's a lot here that could make this a great game but, sadly, it just doesn't fulfill its potential. The environments look cool but the level design is poor. The variety of weapons seems great but the ones I've tried so far are severely underpowered, even with some upgrades applied, not to mention you have to buy ammo at shops throughout the levels or at base camp - there are no pickups besides health and money.

I had to lower some graphics settings but gameplay seems fairly smooth with those changes. You can rotate the camera, which is important since there is no dithering allowing you to see your character behind obstacles. The addition of moveable objects seems cool at first until you get stuck by these items when trying to escape a fight.

There's no map of any kind and no indication of where you're supposed to go or what you're supposed to do to progress. This can be very frustrating, especially given the aforementioned poor level design. The story is beyond basic, told through a series of newspapers you find throughout. Important to note that reading a newspaper, as well as using the shop, doesn't pause the game and leaves you vulnerable to attack.

Overall, I really want to like this game because it has a huge amount of potential but the truth is there are a ton of games that do this genre better. At this point, I'm not sure I'll bother trying to finish the game, though I may come back to it at some point to give it another try. Sorry DnS Development - not recommended.

Update 1:
So, I decided to give this game another shot and now I've played a bit over 11 hours total. Sadly, my initial assessment stands and I still cannot give it a thumbs up.

I've tried every weapon and all of them have some problem limiting their effectiveness. Not enough ammo (e.g. Nailgun, Flamethrower, Shotgun), too long to wind up (e.g. Minigun), too slow (e.g. Shotgun), etc. Even with most/all available upgrades, none of the weapons are particularly effective. In the end, I keep falling back on the Assault Rifle - the first weapon you start with - which, in many situations, is simply not powerful enough. Also of note is the totally useless melee attack which is very slow and your endurance bar only allows three swings before having to rest for it to refill.

The level design is often frustrating, forcing you to (very slowly) rotate the camera to be able to see. There are a number of places - locks, switches, etc. - where you have to hold down "F" and wait for a progress bar while you inevitably get attacked and have to start over. The same endurance bar that affects melee combat also limits your ability to run to about 2-3 seconds before having to wait for it to refill. This makes it difficult if not impossible to escape a hoard of enemies while you reload your weapon.

I had really hoped I was being overly negative with my earlier review but I quickly became frustrated by all of the same issues I had before. I just can't recmmend this game when there are so many better games in the top-down shooter genre.

Update 2: Final Review
Yeah, so something made me decide to come back to this game yet again and, while there's still a great deal about this game that I think could easily have been done better, I'm cautiously changing my review to a thumbs up. For some reason, I really felt the need to come back and finish this game, whether simple completionism or what, I'm not sure but I just don't like leaving games unfinished. I will now say that this game is not absolutely terrible. Yes, there are many games that do the genre better and yes, if you haven't played a lot of them, there are others you should buy first.

However, some of my problems diminished as I continued through the game. For one, the level design improves to some extent in later levels. Also, getting used to rotating the camera as well as avoiding moveable objects makes levels easier to navigate, though it can still be frustrating to get stuck on objects when trying to flee from the center of a battle. As for my complaints about the weapons, as I learned to more effectively use some of them and switch between various weapons, it definitely made combat easier. I was still unable to ever effectively use melee combat and I believe that ability could just as well have been left out as made so useless. The admittedly sparse plotline is fleshed out just enough by the scattered newspapers to drive the game to the end, just don't expect anything too engrossing.

While this game suffers from many issues that prevent it from filling its potential, I still found it worth playing through to the end. There are certainly better games out there in this genre but, if you've played most of them and are looking for something different, you may find enough here to keep you interested for a short time. It's not a long game and doesn't really have any replayability (short of higher difficulties) so pick it up for a couple bucks on sale if you can - it's simply not worth $10. I'll give it a cautious thumbs up but read through the whole review if you'd like to know some of the issues the game has.

A very average top down/isometric shooter, pretty fun in coop, bland on your own. Its also pretty easy, even the difficulty insane is doable alone for some people. Guns can be upgraded, as can your secondary weapons such as grenades, drones and even remote controlled cars. Story consists of insect numbers growing out of control due to global warming, a pesticide is used which makes things worse in more ways than one. Its upto you to save the planet..... are you upto it?? 5.5/10

Das ist ein sehr gutes Spiel, ich verstehe gar nicht, wieso es so schlecht Bewertet ist. Also alleine kann ich mir nicht vorstellen das dieses Spiel spaß macht, deshalb zocke ich es mit einem Freund und das macht sehr viel Spaß. :)

Kaufempfehlung -außer für Single-Player

Primal Fears is a Helicopter view (Not sure if that's the right name) action shooter. The best way I can describe it is like Alien Swarm, longer, but perhaps more monotonous.

It's kinda like Dead Frontier, if you've played that one, except without it's RPG elements, gear hunting, exploring, tons of different weapons, and all in all, way more linear. It's impossible to get lost while playing this game, because the challenge doesn't come from exploring, it comes from fighting waves of enemies while you try to complete objectives.

Bits and pieces of backstory: Summer has been rather hot this year, and the bug population in the country is growing out of control. Scientists start working on a pesticide, named Phargone, and they release it in urban areas without testing it first. You can imagine what's going to happen next. Mutants......And Mutant bugs.

The music is so so, the graphics are standard for games like this. You can move the camera using the Q and E keys, which is a huge plus. That way, nothing is ever stuck behind a building or some kind of object, and you can keep a clear sight of your enemies.

The weapons are pretty basic, assault rifle, shotgun, RPG, saw blade thrower, nail gun, flamethrower and a chaingun, among a few others. You can buy them using cash that you get from killing enemies or collecting cash bundles on the ground. You can also upgrade them, so they can fire faster, hit harder, or carry more ammo.

This game, even on insane difficulty, wasn't that hard for me. Easy and normal are quite, well....Easy, you can beat them without any kind of problem. I can't really talk about the multiplayer experience, because it seems like nobody else plays this game at the moment. I can't describe if it lags or not. Gonna dissapoint you on that one.

Length? I was able to finish this game in 2 hours and half or so EVEN if I was trying to collect all the newspapers for an achievement. Said newspapers give you a bits and pieces of what's going on here.

This game is rather monotonous, shooting enemies gets kinda old after a while, then again, the game doesn't last long, so it kiiiinda solves that problem? I don't know, depends on what kind of gamer you are. I would recommend this if it's on sale, but it's not worth paying the full price, definitely not.

★★★☆☆ - 3/5

Den Meta-Score von 39 kann ich nicht nachvollziehen.
Dieser Iso-Shooter gehört nicht zu den Titeln die mich beim Anspielen schon langweilen. Die Grafik ist ok, auch wenn sie hin und wieder mal ruckelt. Der Soundtrack passt zum Spiel und ist nicht nervig. Multiplayer hat auf anhieb geklappt.
Die langen Ladezeiten gehen mir allerdings schon auf die Nerven.

I can not understand the meta-score of 39.
This iso-shooter is not one of the titles bore me even when playing. The graphics are ok, even if they lag from time to time. The soundtrack fits the game and is not annoying. Multiplayer worked at first attempt.
The long loading times nerves me.

Primal Fears may has some good things in it... for example a really good and manipulable camera, a working coop, varied mapdesign and even a good soundtrack.
But it is simply not entertaining. Gunfights are repetitive, lazy upgrading system, it is linear and the background story is just dump. Seriously; an organization created an insecticide to stop an epidemic and accidential causes most humans in the USA to become muddy insect mutants... Oops!
Later in the game the enemies become more stronger but your guns really don't feel like they were balanced in any way. The most effective weapons for me were the M16 and the Flamethrower and still, after I improved them to the max. they were too weak against the hordes.
It was no fun, even with friends... atleast for me. So I've never completed the thing because of the upcoming boringness in me everytime I started the game again.
I think I can recommend this game between 1$ and 4$ but only if you have friends to laugh with while playing.

Das Spiel ist schnell erklärt. Chemikalien verwandeln Tiere und Menschen in der Umgebung in unangenehme Mutanten und man selbst muss sich da durch kämpfen.
Dafür stehen einem ein Sturmgewehr, Granaten und eine Schrotflinte zur Verfügung und einige weitere Waffen aus dem Einkaufsautomaten, der an verschiedenen Ecken steht.
Waffen sind verbesserbar. Man kann Schaden, Feuerrate, Magazingröße und maximale Munition einzeln aufrüsten und bei Explosivwaffen sogar den Explosionsradius.
Alles in allem: Ich finde das Spiel angenehm, wenn man es im Sale bekommt. Vollpreis wäre zuviel.

Das war wohl nix...die Story lassen wir mal ganz aussen vor, dafür ist sie einfach zu flach.
Die Steuerung selber ist furchtbar, zum Teil macht sogar die das Spiel schwer und nicht die "Gegner". Dazu ein sehr mageres Storytelling und irgendwie wirkt es furchtbar uninspiriert und langweilig.

Ich kann nicht mal einem Top-Down-Shooter Freund dieses Spiel empfehlen. Der sollte das Geld dann lieber sparen und zB in Splatter oder andere Titel investieren.

Dieses Spiel is nicht sehr empfehlens werd aus folgenden Gründen:
1. Level sind fast identisch aufgebaut und werden schnell langweilig
2. Ich finde die Perspektive (Third Person) passt überhaupt nicht zum Spiel da zuwas wie Headshots machen nicht möglich ist
3. Die Monster sind eig immer die gleichen und werden auch sehr schnell langweilig da sie keine besonderen Fähigkeiten haben
