One of the original arcade games that gave parents and senators plenty of worries comes to the Sega Saturn. This version of the ever bloody and violent Primal Rage is the last one to come out on the major consoles.
The story starts out in the future, where civilization is destroyed, leaving few human survivors. The dinosaur age is born again. These dinosaurs, the new dominating species, now compete for control of this planet, which they call "Urth." When Primal Rage came from the arcades, it was not a huge success, like the Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat series. It did, however, make an impact. You know that when it first came out in the arcades, you stopped to take a long look at its superb graphics. Now Saturn owners will be able to enjoy Primal at home.
Battle on different sets, like arctic tundras or urban wastelands. The game lets you choose from seven monsters, who are all either dinosaurs or King Kong cousins. Each one has its own set of unique special attacks and finishing moves, naturally.
The moves are really easy to pull off. This version also has just about everything arcade perfect, from the animation to the large size of the characters.
What this home version also offers is a One-player Practice Mode, Tournament Mode and Tug Of War. In Tug of War, the two players share the same vein (Primal Rage's lifebar). Basically, damage done to each player will move the meter back and forth until one player pushes it all the way to the end. This will make for some long, exciting bouts.
If you are a (video game) fighter by nature, you might want to check out this version of Primal Rage coming out last, but definitely not least, to the Saturn. Expect to see it in the beginning of April of this year.
MANUFACTURER - Time Warner
THEME - Fighting

Primal Rage for the Sega Saturn is close to being released. As to be expected, this 32-Bit rendition is as close as you can get to the arcade.
Like the other Primal Rages (there are two others in this Next Wave section alone), players get to control vicious prehistoric beasts in one-on-one combat. The winner gets to conquer the new Earth. Each beast has an array of moves. Aggressive players will seek out combos.
Add in finishing moves, and Primal Rage looks like it will be a hot game for the Sega Saturn.
