    It has some minor gameplay annoyances, but overall it delivers the slow-paced but nonetheless thrilling experience of game hunting.
  2. Sure, I can mow down countless humans in any FPS, but drilling a gentle animal is not my idea of a good time. [Mar 2003, p.83]
  3. Features some tremendously rewarding moments when you finally get the kill. Getting there however can be a frustrating and repetitive business.
  4. A first-rate hiking simulator. [28 Feb 2003, p.86]
  5. It should be able to tide over hunters looking for some off-season adventure on their PS2s. On its own merits, though, it isn't much of a game.
  6. If you're the type that wants instant action and do not like games that take a long time to play, then this game will not appeal to you. They did a good job of capturing the true way of hunting and to be honest they might have made it less realistic.
  7. True hunters will see nothing but shortcomings. [Apr 2003, p.87]

    You know how many money Activision has gained after, probably a decade of this flood. I don't know how many, but Activision need to cancel this pathetic franchise, who will even care of Cabela 2014 ? anyone? no. Expand
