I rated it a 5.

It's a ok game. There are wierd quirks in it that will frustrate the living h e double l out of you but if you have patience it's not oo bad. I got 975 achievement points in about 20 hours. I didnt get the last 25 because the postman was here and I wanted to get my next game in que. I really enjoyed blasting Beavers away with a .50 cal 6 shooter hand gun. :) One thing that really frustrated me is the horrible way the vehicles handled. It's not necessary to use them and after driving one you probably wont, ever. The strongest animal in the game that you will hunt is a squirell. I put 8 arrows into 1 before it finally keeled over. I couldn't believe it. This game is worth playing and entertaining for what it is. If your going for easy achievement points then pass this game up. Every point you earn in this game is well deserved.

If you've played Cabela's before, and enjoyed it, this game lives up to the name. It is a hunting game though, not to be confused with a FPS. It is ONLY for someone who wants to enjoy a hunting game. Again, I'm trying to stress this a lot, if you're looking for a fps because you've played the rest, this is NOT the game to get.

The upgraded graphics in this game are the most notable feature. The game play is still very similar to other Cabela games. You'll be tasked with going into the wilderness, and hunting specific animals with certain qualifications. This could be as easy as kill a wolverine, to as difficult as kill a 3 rabbits and a lynx with a shotgun at less than 10 feet.

Fishing has been added to the game, as opposed to Dangerous hunts, and unfortunately it is necessary to fish. Fishing seems like a tedious process of setting lines and waiting for the fish to bite, much like other fishing mini games, so it adds little to the game.

An enjoyable game for the hunter or Cabela enthusiast, but most people will not enjoy this game.

If you've played Dangerous Hunts, I believe this game lives up to it. It's not just about hunting though which throws alot of people off. The fishing part was great and the dog sledding was excellent. The hunting could've been a little better with very hard to kill Rabbits and trying to figure out the gender of some of the animals, but all and all a fun game.
