Far Cry Primal reviews round-up – all the scores

The latest Far Cry game releases this week – does it live up to the franchise legacy?


Far Cry Primal is released this week, but it’s not about liberating oppressed villagers with an AK-47 and homemade petrol bombs.

Far Cry Primal is a single-player spin-off set in a prehistoric land. There are some elements that will be very familiar to players – crafting weapons and battling animals are central to the game – but Ubisoft must surely be hoping the new setting will envigorate the series.

There’s no co-op play this time either, so it’s a strictly solo and storyline line-heavy game. We didn’t get code in time for the reviews (telling?) so here’s a round-up of the scores from the critics.

GameSpot – 8/10
Forbes – 8/10
The Koalition – 95%
IGN – 7.9
Shacknews – 6/10
GamesRadar – 3/5
Hardcore Gamer – 4/5
Time – 4/5
Game Reactor – 8/10
Evening Standard – 4/5
Push Square – 7/10
Lazy Gamer – 7.7
VentureBeat – 73/100
Eurogamer – no score
