It's a shame a lot of people will never give this PC series a shot, because it has one innovative concept going for it. That concept may not be the most original in the world-combining a FPS with an RTS is an obvious hybrid-but the innovation comes in actually pulling it off.
The Savage part of the title comes with the prehistoric vibe that the game's caveman-esque characters exude, although the setting is actually explained as a post-apocalyptic future. Man is rebuilding, but now animals are smart, have two legs, and apparently remember things like seal clubbing, elephant poaching, and doggie dresses. It's a wide-scale war of retribution, all played out on a Warcraftian battlefield.
