  1. The only danger in this game is that you might get electrocuted while smashing your TV for showing you this ugly, tedious crap. [Jan 2004, p.135]

Animals will see you no matter how slow you move, shooting is way more difficult than necessary, controls themselves are clunky, and combat is terrible. Overall, it's very boring and unsatisfying, just like real hunting! Full Review »

    this isn't exactly a hunting game, so if your looking for a traditional cabela's hunting game, this isn't what your looking for at all. Itsthis isn't exactly a hunting game, so if your looking for a traditional cabela's hunting game, this isn't what your looking for at all. Its like a survival adventure sort of game. you go around different areas of the world and fend off against that climates most dangerous animals. Its actually a lot of fun. there is some definite problems with the game in terms of story and gameplay, but its good enough for some campy fun. some of the cutscenes and characters have some really illogical events in them that are so bad they are hilarious. like this one part at the beginning of the game, a cougar comes out during a cutscene, and the guy calmly says as the cougar is sitting five feet away from him, " well bud, I'm running a little low on ammo, how bout you take care of him :)" its not a triple A title at all, but its a guilty pleasure game that is admittedly probably my favourite hunting game Full Review »
