I recently purchased this game, and was a little worried if it was worth it. I have been a fan of the Cabela's games for a long time. Lets start with the camera angle, which I think is excellent. It appears just like you would imagine if you were right there. The controls in this game are great. It's the feeling that everything feels correct. The controls are similar to any of the Cabela's outdoor adventures. The interface and HUD are very good. Everything is clear, and performing tasks such as using lures is sometimes challenging, but good. Next, is statistics. I'm not sure how statistics is used in a hunting game; but the stats of the guns and the point system on the animals appears to be accurate. This game can be challenging to even people who play this kind of game often. On hard, they eliminate certain things from your HUD to make it more challenging. For people who play this game on the easy mode, it still shows a good amount of challenge. The graphics in this game are great. The environment in this game really reflects what it is like to actually be there. I even looked up all of the guns in the game before writing this review, and all the way down to the triggers themselves is 100% accurate. The sound effects in this game are also excellent. You can hear the sticks and leaves in this game sound just like they do in real life. The sounds of the guns firing is also great, and they really reflect the hunting experience. This game has astounding variety. There are so many choices of gun/fishing rods to last you for a while. Also, the animals are very varied. There are many species of small, medium, and large game, along with birds and fish. The fishing in this game is more like a mini game, then a large part of the game itself. Every so often, you will be asked to go out and catch a fish the weighs a certain amount, which can get tedious and repetitive. Overall though, I think this is a great game and everyone who is a hunting sim fan, or just a Cabela's fan should go out and get this game. Thanks.
