Considering all you do is walk around and take pictures of animals... it actually is enjoyable. I dont think the younger generation will enjoy but this Old Sckool gamer does.

I am really enjoying this game. If the idea of trekking around on a virtual safari and taking pictures of the vast wildlife interests you, then by all means get this game. The graphics are great, and there is enough variation in the challenges to keep it interesting.

There are two pretty big issues with the game that prevent it from being great, though.

1. No voice acting at all. This is inexcusable, and really a glaring omission. Reading subtitles gets very tedious.
2. Load times. They are bad, but once you get used to the pacing of the game, and not saving every 2 seconds, it's manageable.

Don't be scared to rent or buy this. You will not be disappointed if you know what you're getting into.
