  • Summary: Cabela's Outdoor Adventures features North America's top outdoor destinations, over 50 hunting and fishing adventures and intensive use of gear and tactics, such as animal calls and stealth skills. Emphasis is placed on moments that are instinctively associated with hunting and fishing, like stalking the animals, squeezing the trigger, hooking a fish or snap-shooting a flushed bird, all while respecting real life hunting rules and regulations. Players can also upgrade their hunting gear with authentically branded real life equipment. Brand new to the franchise is an all-new shooting system known as VITALS (Visually Integrated Targeting and Lock-on System) that allows the player to focus on delivering an accurate shot to the prey’s vitals, while also creating a closer and more personal view of the animals as they react realistically to being hunted. Even better, you can create your trophy buck - customize your deer’s rack, body and color. For the new players, the game offers integrated tutorials and guided hunts. [Activision] Expand

  1. While most of it seems like deja-vu, I was able to see an improvement from most of past Cabela games, especially that pathetic Dangerous Hunts game from last year. If I had a hunting game to recommend to someone that knows squat about hunting, give this one a try but don’t expect the greatest game of all time. Its fun while it lasts.

    It's got a few issues and the fishing's mostly phoned in, but Outdoor Adventures may well be a decent option for aspiring woodsmen this season.
  3. A decent hunting adventure. [Dec 2009, p.77]

    I first seen this game over at a friend of mine - we took turns playing it for hours, each trying to get a better score; it pretty true to its 'hunting simulation' description, but it's fun nonetheless. I don't understand why they bothered with fishing, it looks like they just slapped a poor excuse for a fishing simulation (maybe they had some Rapala game around there somewhere) over a pretty solid huning experience. They should have used that time to focus on missions (the game is a bit short) or more customization options for the player/weapons. Collapse
