When a domesticated grizzly named Boog gets lured intoTeam up with a cast of crazy critters, unleashing your animal instincts in Open Season, the game – a riotous romp in the great outdoors in which a rowdy brood of forest animals turns the tables on a bunch of unsuspecting hunters. When a domesticated grizzly named Boog gets lured into leaving the creature comforts of home by a fast-talking mule deer named Elliott, he finds himself lost in the woods just three days before hunting season begins. Forced to "rough it" in the great outdoors, Boog goes native, rallying all the forest animals to take back their home and send the hunters packing. Interact with Beth, Shaw, and all your animal favorites from the Open Season film. Throw skunk bombs, hurl rabbits, use acorn-firing squirrels, and pull outrageous woodland pranks to scare the pants off the hunters. Roll in a giant snowball, ride the rapids on a floating outhouse, zip through tunnels in a crazy mine cart ride, and take on more madcap adventures as Boog discovers how to go from "Mild" to "Wild". Challenge your friends or team up together in 4-player mini-games. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. It's a perfect game for young children learning how to use the Wii, but outside of that, even the most die-hard platformer enthusiast may have a hard time sticking with it till the end. [Feb 2007, p.69]

    The comedy, while basic, actually had us laughing a few times through the game, and even though the story and character designs from the film are amazingly cookie-cutter, the game offers a few high points for anyone with little tikes in desperate need of some gaming goodness to go with the afternoon flick.
  3. What it lacks more than anything is enjoyable gameplay. There’s no thrill attached to the empty "hide and sneak" gameplay, and the uneven motion controls derail the potentially blissful "Wild Ride" missions.
  4. Open Season was a mediocre adventure game on the GameCube, and it's even worse on the Wii thanks to the cruddy controls and higher price tag.

    Doesn't make good use of the Wii's abilities. Mini games leave much to be desired, there are better titles for those.
