Primal Rage

In the early 90s, the world of gaming was set ablaze with fighting games throughout Arcades and the console ports. One of these monster ports was of course Primal Rage for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). A primal clash of colossal proportions, this fighting game unleashed prehistoric creatures locked in fierce battles for dominance. You know we love the era of 16-bit gaming. But this game was one of the few that had me angrier than Fran Sinclair from Dinosaurs. Which is why we cover Primal Rage Snes Moves, Finishers and cheats as part of our Cheats & Walkthroughs list.

Primal Rage, developed by Atari Games, made its debut, bringing with it a unique blend of fighting mechanics and prehistoric creatures. The SNES version, released in 1995, caught some backlash due to its audio issues and questionable input drama. Personally I had a blast with it With its captivating visuals, unique character designs, and engaging gameplay, Primal Rage quickly carved a niche for itself in the annals of fighting game history.
