Players must prove their fearlessness and ability by successfully bagging the largest trophies in the world's most rugged regions. The most prized animals can only be reached by climbing cliffs, crossing raging rivers, and facing countless more perilous situations. Brand new elements, such as rewards for successfully using cover to progress through missions and a VITALS system which helps players visualize the perfect shot, promise to make this the most fun and action-packed Cabela’s game yet. The Top Shot peripheral for Wii adds a new level of realism in heart-pounding hunting adventures - just take a few seconds to load the Wii Remote and Nunchuk and you’re ready to put the trophy buck of a lifetime in your crosshairs. In addition, the Wii version includes 13 arcade style shooting galleries, including 4-person multiplayer. [Activision] Expand

    The fast-paced action keeps things from getting too boring, and the medals and high scores actually strive to keep you coming back to improve your performance. The lack of depth and strategy will likely disappoint fans of the genre, but if you take it for what it is, it is actually quite enjoyable.

    The thin gameplay certainly won't interest someone looking for a virtual hunting experience with an edge of authenticity, and isn't enough to entertain anyone looking for an arcade-style game with a solid hook. That being said, the game's shooting gallery mode can be fun in a Duck Hunt sort of way. It is cheaper than most retail games, however, and features some decent but flawed visuals and sound. The rest is forgettable.

    PS3 Version:
    Gorgeous graphics & great immersion, overall this is truly the best hunting game to date yet (never thought I would say that, but the game really surprised me) . It´s just pure fun & challenging, maybe a little bit on the short side with only 12 missions, but it takes some time to unlock everything & find all animal signs. Definately worth buying considering the low price tag & the amount of fun I´ve had with it so far. Normally I would rate this game a 8,5/10, but I want to even the odds a bit. ;)

    It's best to see this as an arcade title rather than a sim and in that respect it's great.

Setting up good shots is fun and the mini games break it quite nicely. Expand

    A big step back from other Cabela's titles. Almost no hunting - just blindly following pillars of light, shooting anything that moves.A big step back from other Cabela's titles. Almost no hunting - just blindly following pillars of light, shooting anything that moves. It's like they took all the bad stuff in all Cabela's games, put them into one and said: "Now the only way is up!" :) Liked the graphics though, best forests so far. Expand
