    Hunting Simulator 2 is an addictive open-world game, but it may have limited appeal due to its genre.

    It’s a niche product, Hunting Simulator 2 – it comes with the territory. It’s good at what it does, though; portraying a popular, albeit taboo, pastime. Hours can be spent tracking prey before taking decisive action, and even if you’re not successful in your hunt, the scenery is so picturesque that you don’t really care. Hunting Simulator 2 lets you enjoy the outdoors, indoors. It’s lets you enjoy dog ownership withing having to pick up its poop. Animal murder may be the aim of it, but it’s mostly beautiful otherwise.

    Hunting Simulator 2 is a credible representation of the hunt, but for this reason it does not offer much fun despite the many contents offered.

    Hunting Simulator 2 is a bare bones version of its predecessor, and not even man’s best friend can save this from being an inferior sequel.

    Hunting Simulator 2 focuses on realism over gameplay, creating a frustratingly slow experience that you’ll want to forget.

    I can see Hunting Simulator 2 working for some people, but it doesn’t work for me. It is clunky, slow and glitchy, and whilst there’s a base loop that could be intriguing, the lack of any real depth past the first few hours left me feeling disappointed.

    Hunting Simulator 2 combines arcade and simulator elements to form a game that lacks much of an identity. Hardcore hunting enthusiasts will find things too simplistic; players after an animal shoot ‘em up will be frustrated by the more realistic elements. While not completely devoid of fun, it’s just too dull to fully recommend.

    I was really excited when I heard we were going to be reviewing "Hunting Simulator 2" I was a big fan of "The Hunter: Call of the Wild" I know it isn't from the same people but it's same genre. I had never played the first Simulator so I didn't know what to expect really. Spoiler Alert I wasn't let down at all. I was quite surprised just how hooked I was. This review is actually a little late because I just couldn't stop playing it. Don't get me wrong it is a Simulator so some of you may get bored, because hunting can be slow and boring at times just like fishing. When that fish hits the line or you see that Buck creeping around the corner things get real exciting real fast. That is one of the amazing things about it you just don't know when or If something is going to happen. :Hunting Simulator is the same way you can go thirty minutes on some levels and not see a thing. Especially in the really wooded areas. Animals hear you, so your creeping around in the woods or running you are going to scare them away. Just like in real life. Let's get back though to the start of the game though.
    You can either skip or go with the tutorial. I recommend doing it. It's really simple and short. You choose if you want to be a Man or Woman there isn't any customization though. You can how ever buy tons of licensed gear though to wear. You choose what animal license you want first. The first one is free, and you get a free weapon depending on which animal you choose as well. The rest of the license aren't that expensive either though. Think the top is like 350 to 500 but you start with 5,000. You need to shop smart though, because you might want another gun to hunt other things, and a bag to carry 2 weapons instead of one. You really have to think about it, because it can take awhile to make money. Especially if you want to trophy your first hunts instead of selling them. The trophies all appear around your lodge and it looks really cool. At the Lodge you can look at your trophies, test weapons at the range, listen to music, change your load outs, change your companion, shop, and choose where you wish to go. So it's like a major base of operations. There are 3 States and each State has two locations.
    The locations all vary as well. Some are Desert , flat grassy fields, wooded areas, and more. Each place has different animals, but some of the same as well. If you got a license for a state you can use it on both of it's locations. If you change States though you are required to get one for that state. There is also a limit to how many you can get with that license as well. So it makes sure you are learning to hunt the other animals as well. They all react different , and have different ways to approach. Like a Cougar, Elk, or Sheep might just walk around a easy hunt, but others not so much. Like ducks you have to shoot them over land to get them, A large animal like a Bear might require multiple shots. Everything keeps you learning and trying new things. The experience feels really realistic, and you can lose hours of your life just waiting for an Animal you want to come along. Time flies when you play, and it's very addicting. It's also a really calming experience as well. The areas are beautiful, very easy on the eyes. The sun peeping through trees or a stream and waterfall flowing nearby. It's just really pleasant to sit and relax and wait for the perfect trophy to come along.

    Hunting Simulator 2 is ultimately an enjoyable and fun hunting simulation; the game while drastically improved over its predecessor, which IHunting Simulator 2 is ultimately an enjoyable and fun hunting simulation; the game while drastically improved over its predecessor, which I personally enjoyed as well. Hunting Simulator 2 is flawed in several ways that hold it back from being considered a masterpiece in the hunting genre. It improves upon its predecessor to become a better simulation overall, but certain choices end up hurting it. The game’s great qualities are apparent as are the improvements over the previous game in the series for Xbox One, such as the ability to use a hunting dog, graphics while nice overall the up close detail still can be off-putting to some and does holds it potential back. As a fan of hunting and fishing games it's easy to say I truly enjoy Hunting Simulator 2. It has all the basics nailed down to be a solid entry in the franchise. The downsides are things that could keep someone that isn't a normal fan of the genre from being fully immersed but aren't overly cumbersome in my humble opinion. If you are a fan of the genre I have no doubt you will enjoy the game to its fullest, however if you do not particularly care for the genre the game is not likely enough to change your mind. So in the end the game is easy to recommend to fans and a worthy addition to the Xbox library in my honest opinion. Expand
