Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts
Hunting at its Core
I am a fan of all Cabela's games. I especially love the rail shooters that allow you to rack up the points by taking out as much wild life as possible. However, that can get old and doesn't require a large amount of technical skill. This game DOES! This is the closest to hunting I have seen in a video game in years. You have to utilize natural cover, stands and blinds, scent masks so the animals don't detect you, animal calls, and the animals behave as they would in the wild. The game doesn't try to be anything besides a hunting game. You have to choose the angle of approach due to wind, different terrains will make greater amounts of noise making you choose the best approach so you don't spook the animals. There are even side objectives and challenges you can complete by hunting small game with certain weapons. There have been a couple glitches I have noticed which wouldn't let me give this game a 10. If they weren't there I would give this a 10 easy as a hunting game. For only $29.99 brand new this one is a steal! If you can find it used it is even better.
