This game really wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be. I was expecting it to be more of a "free roam" where you could run around and hunt animals as you like but each level has set routes you go to and the only time you could shoot is whenever you get attacked by random animals. There were only 2 times when you were sent on a hunt mission.
Now some ways that the game is really unrealistic is you start off early on with a flare gun, and there is a part in the game where you have to go to a ranger building and see if there is a working radio there but instead of shooting the flare gun to signal the plane you have to run around and see if the abandoned building has a radio in it still? This is even seconds before you start a fire for a check point.
The story was fairly good though until a few missions in when really it just all of a sudden loses focus. I really think that if they spent more time paying attention to details it would make the game much more enjoyable, or if they made the story longer instead of cramming it all in such a small time space.
Aside from the story mode it has an arcade style shooting that really isn't too fun unless you have playstation move.
The game took me 2 hours to beat on hard difficulty (which was actually still really easy) and it has an alright gameplay and easy trophies so I would recommend at least playing it once if you are into these sorta games.
i kick myself for buying this game. it has the worst controls i have ever used, plus the camera angles are junk. the story line has only a small bit to do with survival, it is more like assassins creed but shorter. quick climb up here then shoot some wolves then climb over here shoot some more critters then climb some more. save yourself the money and get assassins creed you will have way more fun.
Like most of the other people who left comments, I expected it to be more of a "free roams" game. I also don't like the controls and it's very hard to get into. The game is way too short so it's only use is for a pass time.
If you want to find a game that YOU like you should pay attention to the companies that make the games. I like Bethesda a.k.a the makers of Fallout and Skyrim.
This game is definately one of Caleba's worst games. The controls are terrible as far as aiming goes and just simply walking around is difficult and lame. It seems like they are trying to copy the Uncharted franchise by jumping around on everything. Most of the game is just constantly presing L1 over and over. The graphics are terrible and when you shoot game it simply just falls over on its side. It doesn't even do the usual "following of the Bullet's trail" that I have grown to enjoy in most other cabela games. Def a 1 out of 10. I give it a one just cause it gives my kids another game that is compatible with the move controllers. Please dont waste your time renting it. I promise you won't be missing out on anything.
