Good

Must have if you are a hunter

This game is easy to pick-up and start playing. It is difficult to shoot accurately if you don't have the Wii Blaster. Keeping your hand steady with the Wii remote is tiring. The mini games are also fun. Being able to scope the intended target is as real as it gets other than actually being there. I played with a couple of my buddies who hunt and they liked it a lot. Overall this game is good.

Very Good

Unrealistically Action Packed = Fun

For anyone who has hunted in real life, this game is laughably action-packed. But that’s some of the appeal of this game. Deer come whizzing at you and running all over the place and you just blast away. Zoom in and shoot it right in the butt. Blast a swooping duck a mile away with a deer rifle and watch it go ker-plunk right into the lake. Good times.

But we all play video games to get out of the real world anyway... so the little action sequences are a nice touch.... as far as not finding the right animal... try walking down the trail, a cut scene or even the rangers themselves give you the clues... Love the mini games... Duck hunt anyone? I actually use the Wii Zapper with this game and it works pretty good. I also based my rating on playing a horrible hunting game... anyone played Bass pro shops? This game is a breathe of fresh air... graphics are nice... boards look nice... If you are into hunting games... try this one out.
