  • Press a button to bring up the controls but also what abilities and weapons you have.
  • The more games you play the more new routes and locations open up.
  • Battlepass system is in the game with free and premium tiers.
  • It’s a game you can just play a few games and get what you want from it.
  • At times you will get special one-off missions complete with all-new cutscenes and stories.
  • Such a great feeling when you get new levels, locations, or missions.
  • Bots will take over from anyone who leaves.
  • It’s online only, no single-player.
  • New dinosaurs and Dino attacks come in over time. Dino attacks look incredible.
  • Cool collection of characters.
  • Plays as a brutal racing game in a way.
  • Has a strong pull and due to how short a game is the whole “one more go” mantra is life.

Exoprimal Review Cons:

  • Slow matchmaking in that you have to wait in a lobby and hear the same dialogue repeatedly.
  • It takes a lot of getting used to.
  • Very grindy especially in terms of new locations and unlocks.
  • Doesn’t offer a benchmark test for the graphics.
  • The way the story unfolds is a weird one as it’s over time and not as clear as you would like.
  • A few game modes don’t work like the final mission capture the points mode as the respawn is way too slow and it’s all way too chaotic.
  • Locations and modes repeat a lot.
  • The bots are not great.
  • No way to quit matchmaking.
  • Could do with a training section for each of the possible missions and tasks so you can get used to it and learn the flow.
  • You have no way to select certain locations or missions, it will always be random.
  • Weird having a Battlepass ready to go at launch.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
