I had high hopes for this game but was let down. Do these game developers not know the term sandbox. No real good places to hide and hunt the animals. Most of the time the animals are not free romaing, you get to a triger point and a cut sceen and then some random button pushing. I say skip it
This is the worst game of the series and I have played all except Alaska.
It isn't even close to a hunting game on any level or in any game type. I have played a lot of really bad games but this ranks up there as one of the worst of them. There is no strategy involved. I may have used the scope once or twice during the entire game. I killed more animals with the butt of my gun then with actual bullets. It's like the developers (if that is what they call themselves) that created this mess wanted to turn it into a FPS or something.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, including my worst enemy. Horrible game, to be honest I think I had the least fun playing this game than any other on the 360, which includes over 90 retail games and over 50 arcade games.
1.5/10 Positives: A few of the areas you "hunt" in look nice. If you are a completionist or gamerscore collector it can be over fairly quickly. (8-15 hours depending on skill level) Negatives: Not all areas and levels are well designed. It's not a hunting game. Bushes have the ability to stop you from moving forward. It's not a hunting game. You don't actually need to use a scope to hunt. You don't actually need to shoot more than a few bullets to finish the career mode. The action zone is one of the dumbest ideas ever for a hunting game. What hunter in there right mind would run around a field full of lions or bears or elephants or rhinos or any of the other big cats. It's not a hunting game. Let me reiterate, if you get this game expecting a game about hunting like the previous ones in the series, forget it. This is button mash fest that asks you to run around rifle butting most of the animals.
I actually found this entertaining because it was so bad..all this game involves is running till you get into a cutscene with an animal then mindlessly press buttons. Its funny though..but I dont think that that is what the developers were hoping for.
