    This trigger-happy safari may be too exuberant for its own good, but there's still some fun to be had in these hunts.

    It's in no way a bad game, especially once the Galleries are factored in, it's just not, at all, a good one. There was potential, and the campaign's story and mood are easily the best in any hunting game, but, in the end, it simply doesn't hit its mark.

    Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011 it's not an hunting game, more likely an FPS. The story has major plot holes and the AI presents some major issues. Fortunately the galleries and the alternative game modes save it from a total failure.

    Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011 may have some obvious flaws, like the inept plastic controller and some bug issues, but the overall charm and playful jibes at political correctness is quite refreshing. Video games are about living in a fantasy world, right, and where else can you wreak havoc on endangered species in such a vulgar fashion?

    Do not be fooled into thinking this is anything like previous Cabela games, as Dangerous Hunts is a kick-ass and ass-kicking game. YouDo not be fooled into thinking this is anything like previous Cabela games, as Dangerous Hunts is a kick-ass and ass-kicking game. You certainly will not be breezing through this hunting game like many of their past games...you have to work to advance on this gem.

    The graphics are very good...not the best I have seen, but not lacking neither. The variety of animals, the locations and there is a "Classic", "Survival" and "Story Mode" in this game, each one individual of in itself.

    I do have to say, although the Story Mode is very fun and quite a challenge, the voice acting leaves something to be desired. But I am ok with that as it appears as if the focus of the DEV's was the game play, and not the little bit if dialog that accompanies the game as a whole.

    If you like the Cabela's hunting games, I strongly recommend picking up this one!

    Its a lot of fun and the premise is unique enough to warrant a sequel or two but there is a distinct lack of ambition here which means thatIts a lot of fun and the premise is unique enough to warrant a sequel or two but there is a distinct lack of ambition here which means that the game only halfheartedly grabs you. Shooting virtual animals has never been so enjoyable but I can't help but feel shortchanged over the general experience. We are not asking for Black Ops style FPS but a bit of creativity would help improve the gameability and help it stand out. Expand
