of those games that I really liked at the arcade was Primal
Rage. Stop motion dinos fighting was too cool! Being a big fan

wasn't very good. Oh well, it is worth a download and a few
games. It will not make your top ten games of all-time, but it
is a good time killer and against another opponent, it can be
