|As a time traveler, you are sent back to
primal times to hunt dinosaurs. You can choose from 10 weapons and hunt
by daylight, night (using night-vision devices) or during dawn. Besides
the weapons, there's equipment stuff for hunting: things to bait dinosaurs
or to camouflage yourself. During each mission you get to know the purpose
of your job. That could be either to get a delicious steak for a gourmet
restaurant, dinos to catch for zoos, scientific research, or for weather
or tv shows. For successfuly ended missions, the player earns money
and there are 3 stars for assessment: 1) Hunt was successful 2) minimum
weight of dinosaur is reached 3) mission completed in hunting time limit.
The hunt always takes place in same area, which isn't that big, but
is not wide open. Primal Prey needs RealOneArcade for running it on
and is uses the Deer Hunter 4 engine. Playing in high resolution, this
game really looks acceptable, but it didn't convince me that much. Often
the gameplay repeats and motivation and game tension is rather small.
But whoever likes hunting dinosaurs should give it a try.
