  1. The most polished and enjoyable hunting game ever made. It's surprisingly well-designed, with graphics and environments that actually make you feel like you're roaming the great outdoors. [Dec 2003, p.130]
  2. This is a game that requires patience, preparation and persistence. Combine those three qualities for a successful hunt in a visually compelling game.
  3. Deer Hunt has incredibly deep and challenging gameplay that is coupled with fairly decent visuals and top notch Dolby 5.1 audio. Perhaps now I can understand why hunting appeals to so many people around the world; the thrill of the hunt.
  4. Like playing the slowest, most dropping-laden tactical FPS of your life. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.95]
  5. Like sitting alone in the woods with a bottle of peepee tends to be, this game is damn boring. [Nov 2003, p.171]

    This is the best hunt game that I have ever played. It's a real hunting game with no slag.
