For the most part, Primal is a pretty straightforward 3rd person adventure game. The combat system feels very tight and relies heavily on the shoulder buttons. When she first begins, Jen is limited to mainly defending herself with the dagger. It's not until Jen learns to change forms that the fun really begins, allowing Jen more power and some really sweet finishing moves. The system feels excellent, and allows you to pull off all kinds of awesome looking moves with having to perform the joystick Olympics found in other games. To top things off, the camera does a great job of keeping you in the action at all times.
