Dec 27, 2018Cabela’s The Hunt: Championship Edition is the definition of a niche title. While I wouldn’t have previously assumed I’d fall into that niche, I did find myself enjoying my time with the game, despite some of its flaws. The deliberately slower pace of the game simply won’t be for everyone, however. Arcade hunting aficionados might want to check out Big Buck Hunter Arcade, also available on Switch.

Your life will never be the same after playing this game, to the point where you will find reality boring. But thanks to the Switch, you won't ever have to stop playing… Expand

I know nothing about hunting and bought this primarily for the Bullseye Pro peripheral that comes with the bundle version of the game.
It is a slow paced experience that requires tracking and stalking carefully selected animals that you are licensed to hunt, not everything that moves is fair game.
