    while it's certainly dated now, i remember having just stopped hunting due to it being a mostly boring activity, and hiding my sneer at my dad when he got me this game for xmas "to get me back into hunting." then i popped it in and realized that this was a pretty competent shooter, tracking was fun, and while it was low budget and a bit campy (irl i just hunt whitetail deer, turkey, pheasant, and goose, no dangerous animals) i genuinely had a good time with it. the graphics were pretty good for their time, animations on reloads were good and environments were pretty but could get very constrained with "forest" invisible walls and weird "cliff face" narrow valleys to walk through. i still think often of that bear towards the end of the game, you hear it roar and walking through the misty alpine forests it brought me back to my childhood thinking of disney's the fox and the hound. having a big bear in a mostly empty forest brought the same feeling of intrinsic wonder and adventure that i had gotten bored of with real hunting.

  1. It's very fast paced and probably about as close as a hunting game will ever get to mimicking a typical first-person shooter. [Jan 2004, p.114]
  2. Controls are too sensitive even at the lowest setting, animal AI is set to "charge!" constantly, and collision detection is rugged. [Jan 2004, p.48]
  3. 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]
