Big Game of the Year?

Cabela's Big Game series is steadily developing into a game of annual installments that keep you wondering "wow - how will the development team top this experience next year?" 2012 is no exception.

2012 offers the riveting story of an elite hunting society entrenched in deep internal conflict over who will win the group's ultimate Big Game hunting challenge. Not only will you face the terrors of nature's most fearsome predators, but you must also deal with the human conflict of the world's greatest hunting competition - a competition which has life and death consequences not only for your prey, but for you and your comrades as well. Easily the most human experience of any hunting game thus far.

There are those who criticize the Cabela's series for the lack of legitimate online multiplayer options. To them I ask why bother with the bore of online human opponents? With the animal AI in this game, the enemy is a superior foe to any five-year-old against whom the Call of Duty or Halo series will place you.

Play this game and you'll be forgetting about headshots and bullet time - you'll be all about heartshots and hunter sense. If you're Big enough for the Game, then Big Game is for you.

I have always been a fan of hunting/shooting games but this one was poor. The game looked good but the animals were improperly named( elk was named red deer and that was in Montana I live in Montana what a huge oversight). To add to it there was no challenge, very easy with no difficult settings to ramp up the skill levels. I felt like I was at the local bowling alley playing buck hunter .........needless to say I returned it ASAP! Do not wast your time.

Big Game Hunt 2012 was a great disappointment! This is the first one I've played in years. I think the best one ever produced was Big Game Hunt 2005. NOW that was a game with challenges in it. It was for Xbox but is a hard game to beat in compearsion to 2012. Come on Cabela lets try and due better in the FUTURE!
