Far Cry Primal is a first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It was released worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 23, 2016, and for Microsoft Windows on March 1, 2016. The game is a spin-off of the main Far Cry series. It is the first Far Cry game set in the Mesolithic Age.

Why It Rocks

  1. An open-world game being during the Mesolithic Age is pretty unique and original.
  2. Decent story.
  3. Whenever you start up the game, you'll be given a section to help you remember what's happened in the story so far. This is helpful for people who may have lost track while exploring the game.
  4. There's a crafting system, which allows you to make new or upgrade weapons, improve your carrying capacity, and so on.
  5. Memorable and likable characters.
  6. You can now tame animals like foxes, wolves, and even a sabertooth tiger.
  7. Instead of having guns or shotguns, you're now using sticks and clubs, which gives the game a much better feel.
  8. Good soundtrack that fits to the stone-age settings.
  9. Decent graphics.
  10. The characters actually speak in a caveman language, giving the game a much more realistic feeling.

Bad Qualities

  1. Many people criticized how much the map looks like a copy of the Far Cry 4 map despite taking place on a different continent.
  2. The ending is abrupt.
  3. The optimization is awful, as it lags on lower-end PC's, even on the lowest settings.
  4. The graphics are slightly downgraded compared to Far Cry 4.
  5. No 100% reward.


Far Cry Primal received generally positive reception from critics, who mostly praised the concept and setting, as well as the animal-taming mechanic and world design. Some reviewers felt there was a lack of weapons for the player to utilize, leading to repetitive gameplay design, while others felt the story and characters were not on par with the previous Far Cry games.
