    theHunter: Call of the Wild clearly provides with a realistic feel of hunting. Seasoned hunters would adore it, but it may push away casual players.

    Freedom of exploration, complex ecosystem and breathtaking visuals result in an unbelievably strong sense of communing with nature, but horrible UI, some design flaws and common glitches undermine theHunter’s value. Nonetheless it’s a unique game worth checking out. [04/2017, p.52]

    A hunting simulator that looks great and is fun? Time for a Jagermeister!

    If hunting is your bag then theHunter is a game which could very much tick all the right boxes for you. Compared to the competition I’ve experienced this is right there at the top of the pile, and it’s a game which is only going to grow as Expansive Worlds continues to layer it with more content.

    Boasts some beautiful, convincing countryside to hunt in, but the glacial pace will challenge the limits of most people’s patience.

    When theHunter: Call of the Wild works properly, it’s still going to be a game that only those with the patience of a saint would enjoy. It’s very slow, full of barriers, and isn’t very exciting. That’s not to say it’s not completely without merit as it’s a stunner to look at and there are rare occasions where everything comes together to make a compelling experience. Just note that those rare occasions are few and far between.

It´s starts a little slow, but once you learn its dynamics it grows (hugely) on you! The hunting experience can be very challenging but super rewarding at the end. Shooting and eventually chasing the animal and tracking its blood trail are one of the coolest things in the game. The Graphics on "ultra setting" is the closest to a real life ambient I´ve ever seen, truly immersive experience! Night time, sunny, cloudy, rain, fog, dusk, dawn, thunders, lightning, wind gusts... you name it, the game recreated them perfectly. Sometimes I just grab the ATV and ride around to enjoy the landscape. I cannot stress enough how good this game is! 10! Expand

    Очень красивые заповедники, иногда захожу в игру просто чтобы попродить по лесам, послушать звуки природы
    Существует не так уж много
    Очень красивые заповедники, иногда захожу в игру просто чтобы попродить по лесам, послушать звуки природы
    Существует не так уж много симуляторов охоты, тем более таких проработанных, чувствуется, что игра делалась с душой.
    Так же стоит отметить, что она поддерживается разработчиками и по сей день, постоянно добавляется контент и фиксятся баги. Игра сейчас дает совсем другой экспириенс, нежели когда она была условно бесплатной и распространялась через лончер на сайте.

    Here's a quick rundown:
    -Beautiful and very realistic graphics, sounds, ambience, weather effects
    -Very accurate and realistic bullet
    Here's a quick rundown:
    -Beautiful and very realistic graphics, sounds, ambience, weather effects
    -Very accurate and realistic bullet ballistics and trajectory
    -Hunting and tracking are slow and require patience, so this is NOT call of duty hunting.
    -With each animal you kill, it shows you where the bullet enters and what organs are hit along with other statistics.
    -Each animal reacts to every sound, smell, and sight differently and with realistic outcomes

    However, the game lacks any content other than hunting..
    -This hunting game released with NO placeable tree stands, ground blinds, tents, or transportation (which is very risky on the developer end of a hunting game..) however, you can now purchase these items with real money many months after release.
    -This game does NOT include any purchasable property such as a cabin where you can hang up your trophies or process your kills.
    -There is NOTHING to do in this game, other than hunting and tracking animals.

    -In the item shop, some of the item descriptions scroll a bit too fast to read.
    -In the player menu, it sometimes takes multiple clicks to open the map/inventory/skills/perks
    -In the item shop under rifles and rifle ammo, excessive scrolling is needed just for it to show duplicate items which may be confusing at first
    As of 11-29-2017, I have not experienced any other bugs or glitches with this game

Basically, once you get over the fact that you pay, (a lot of), money to play it, I was totally addicted for and would still love it. However, the loading and playing has so many bugs, I have personally experienced 4 total unfixable crashes with which the incompetent help desk just shrugged their shoulders. With a new computer/ windows version I got it going again, just to have it permanently crash again. Do not waste your time or money on this - and this is from an addict of the game. Expand
