fun game to play just for fun more like an arcade kind of game it would be much funerif they could make it to where you have to track down your prey or target or whatever that would be much more interesting
I have been a huge fan of all the Cabela games. I was so looking foward to crawling around in the bush and mountains and sniping some unsuspecting Grizzley with a hollow point thru the skull.... however, as I put this game in and started my initial trek thru the wilderness I killed an elusive legendary Elk (which was way to quick and easy) and moments later I found myself shaking a rabid wolf from my arm as a half dozen others waited to latch on to me once he let go or got his head blowed off.
I thought, "wow", thats kinda sucked, hope that dont happen to often". But it did happen. A lot. In fact every 50-60 yards I walked I was either getting bit by the hungry hounds or mauled by a pack of Cougars.
Look, the people that made this made it way to quick and with ill regard for reality (Ill give them props on the graphics but thats it). I mean come on, why wouldnt a mountain lion drop to its knees when you have your scope dialed into its pupils? And the fact that it took a dozen rifle rounds to the heart of a bear to drop it made this game very boring and repetitive.
The bar on todays video games is way higher than what this game delivers.
lets just say I was a fan of this series, with the arcade games and all, but this was just terrible. I liked the older versions because of the realism... Here, A dang wild dog will take 3 blows from a perfect shotgun blast to the face before going down. Animals come at you way too fast at horrible angles, deeming it almost impossible and frustrating at moments. Hunter vision was garbage as well and it took me a while to know wth I was actually looking for since they never even explained what it was for. Even for a rent, don't even try, pass it off.
