    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]

    it is a great game for hunters, and anyone who wants to feel what hunting is truly about but its close to the real thing.

    This game may not appeal to every one but for true die hard gamers and hunters this game combines the best of both worlds. It's great I can go hunting without having to get up 5:00 in the morning and hink 20 miles into BFE. Expand

    Something to do when i cant be out there doing it for real even tho you cant get the thrill of guting it showing the deer off in town or that thrill of seeing him before you take the shot and your heart is punding but it is close to the real thing. Expand

    It is so cool how you can hunt every animal from an musk ox to a polar bear and a lot of deer.

    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. Collapse
