Open Country offers a lot of contents for a very low cost. Hunting, fishing and quad racing, all immersed in an unspoiled setting in the wilderness. If you are looking for freedom and some healthy competition this is the title you are looking for.
Open Country is an extremely valid title in the concept. The inability to counteract the difficulties and the presence of an aggressive malus loop are unfortunately something that made the experience with Open Country more frustrating than fun.
A brave outdoor life simulator in which you have to explore, hunt, and carry out repetitive tasks and missions completely devoid of appeal. The result is a game that is beautiful to look at (for its price) but rather boring to play; only recommended to the most motivated players.
Even if Open Country tries to differentiate itself from other similar games, it can't succeed in its task. The many implemented features are not a novelty and they fails to shine in a way or another. Moreover, the game feels unpolished due to many bugs and problems that can be often encountered. Right now, Open Country is no more than a beautiful place to watch landscapes from the top of a mountain.
The concept behind Open Country is solid enough. A more relaxed hunting and survival simulator in a traditional game structure has an audience: those who feel that hunting games are too vague for newcomers. While some of the quirky bits can be forgiven, the busted hunting mechanics and the dated presentation bring everything crashing down. Unless you're the very forgiving and patient type, pass on this title.
