Way of the Hunter - Announcement Trailer

Aug 23, 2022A beautiful, fun, mostly realistic hunting simulator. The shooting is great, making you feel tense, amazed, satisfied from a clean kill, but also angry when you miss. It’s not as polished as it could be but if you like hunting games, you will not be disappointed here.
Aug 12, 2022Net of some annoying bugs, Way of the Hunter is a simulation that certainly knows how to satisfy hunting enthusiasts, giving them a journey into the wilderness that allows them to take multiple approaches to take down elusive prey and almost always convincing behaviors. At the same time, we are talking about a great exercise of patience, to be used both when the long hunts do not lead to the desired results, and during the campaign mode which, given its playful structure, did not turn out to be as interesting as we hoped.
Sep 3, 2022Way of the Hunter is an engaging hunting game. You’ll skulk around the bushes, experience some breathtaking views and unfortunately step not only in animal feces but also in a couple of bugs and simplifications. It’s obviously not a game for everyone, but it’s plenty satisfying and might devour a lot of your free time.
Aug 21, 2022Way of the Hunter isn't successful at integrating the realism it promised into the game. If it solves technical problems with further updates, then we'll have a good hunting game that we can spend hours playing. In it's current state, I can't recommend unless you have a deep passion for hunting. But I gotta admit even with optimization issues and game breaking bugs, it's still comforting to watch stunning sights.
Aug 29, 2022A solid hunting sim, despite animals displaying behavioural problems and some bugs.
Oct 11, 2022After each direct hit, you can see in slow motion and in great detail which trajectory your bullet traveled, where and with what force it hit the animal, which vital organs were pierced and at what point your poor prey died. No gratuitous violence, but a realistic, almost scientific representation of how you killed that innocent pheasant or that cute little deer. After more than three decades of playing video games, there is very little that makes us uncomfortable, but 'Way of the hunter' occasionally made us gulp.
Sep 6, 2022Way of the Hunter sacrifices fun for realism, and coupled with some other aggravating elements is a game I cannot recommend.

Sound is buggy and it's annoying at times, I've had a couple of glitches here and there that took me out of my immersion. And i'm not sure if they purposely made certain bushes or branches look like animals fro afar to confuse you, but that is kind of annoying. Especially when you zoom in and see that they look nothing like they look from afar... But other than that I've had so much fun on this game. The tracking takes s alot of patience and the graphic is great. Playing on my ultra wide curved monitor running on the best possible graphic setting has been AMAZING. and the FOV CAN be adjusted, i'm not sure whether it has been fixed recently but that's not an issue for me like others have commented. 8/10 purely based on how much i enjoy the experience so far.… Expand

Models are good most of the time with occasional T posing when running. Unfortunately there are too many game breaking issues should have been a $20 game… Expand
Aug 22, 2022Way of the hunter was supposed to be the "killer" of TheHunter: Call of the wild and the basics are here - stunning visuals, interestingWay of the hunter was supposed to be the "killer" of TheHunter: Call of the wild and the basics are here - stunning visuals, interesting gameplay, a lot of "realism". The finished product however, lacks any polishing and should be in early access and development for at least six more months. At it's current state, Way of the hunter is barely playable and really not recommended.
+ stunning visuals
+ limited ammo (so you can't hold enough ammo to fuel medium sized war as in CoTW)
+ really impressive "claim prey" screen with a lot of information about the killing shot and the animal
- a whole lot of bugs. Devs and paid reviewers are trying to sell the story of "few bugs here and there" but that's not true
- terrible FOV with no options to change it
- terrible and not-intuitive controls, with no options to change them as well
- limited and boring collection of weapons and equipment
- worst voice acting i have seen in the last few years
- it's freezing a lot, it's crashing a lot and often saves are getting corrupted
- co-op broken to extend to be unplayable
- tracking is not really working. There are tracks showing where animals are usually going through, but the actual animals are not leaving tracks
- "ghost bullets". Sometimes (like 25% of the shots) are not counted, even if you are 100% hitting the animal. No reaction, no blood, no kill
And so on, the list can go for few pages. Way of the hunter is not worthy of your time, or your money - check it again in few months and after (hopefully) few big patches.… Expand
