I do not hunt, nor will I ever. I think hunting is just straight down wrong. But hunting in a videogame is fine by me! Why you may ask. Well think about this: Killing people is wrong, yet almost everyone on this planet plays Call of Duty. Exactly. Anyways, ON WITH THE REVIEW: The graphics in this game blew me away. When playing this game, I felt like I was really in the wild hunting. It looks so realistic. The gameplay is great. Now you cannot just run wherever you want. There is a mapped course in which you walk forward until you reach the next hunt. Do not worry though! The mapped area is so open it will feel like you can walk almost anywhere. When you approach your prey, there will usually be around 2-8 of that type. Shooting a female makes you restart that hunt (real hunting rules), and some of the bigger types of the animals are worth more points. Depending on your animal, oyur distance, your gun, and your position (finding bonus point areas give you more points, these areas are usually behind cover, like a bush or rock). More points gives you medals. Getting gold medals on each hunt gives you a gold medal for that area, which gives you achievments. The hunting is pretty realistic. I'm not saying it is the perfect experience, but it is real enough and is very fun. The game also has a bonus gallery mode, which is pretty pointless. It is an arcade shooter... not very fun... no achievments or awards for the gallery mode. So with all of these problems, what is my one, BIG drawback. That is the amount of content and game leangth. Your geting a pretty long carreer mode: 12 levels with 4-8 hunts each. I think there are 68 hunts overall. Plus trying to get every gold medal and every achievment is VERY entertaining. But once you have done all of that (which may take you a while), that is pretty much it. PROS: Very fun gameplay, pretty realistic, amazing graphics, leangthy carreer mode, gold medal gaining is fun, great achievment system. CONS: Lame shooting gallery, not much content after beating the carreer, no online. CONCLUSION: I definetly recommend this game, and it is a steal for 20 bucks. I was going to give this game an 8 because of the small amount of content and lack of online. But since it is just 20 bucks, you are getting more then what you paid for.
yes: I recommend this product
