To be honest I think this one took a step back. The only reason I rated this game as high as I did was the graphics are awesome. You only have 2 speeds, running while standing or walking while crouching, there is no low crawl or way to be super stealthy. You can climb rock formations which is a plus...but a i foot step will block your movement because its not a "climbable" step which is really frustrating. The steadiness of your rifle is the same crouching or standing so there is no benifit unless you find a shooting rest. There are specific shooting rests, even though there is a down log right in front of you with a better vantage point you must use an approved rest i guess. I can go on and on, bottom line is this game is horrible.
I am usually all for Cabela's hunting games but this one just does not live up to some of the other titles in the series. The graphics are on par with a PS2 game (bushes made out of an X instead of 3D). Controls are clunky, guns are bland and offer no real advantage over other calibers, no optional firearm (Hunting birds with a rifle?), levels are large but with scarce game and you are either running or crawling with no in between. I think Cabela's is getting comfortable having no competition and so this is the product we get. I was really looking forward to this game yet I was bored in an hour and sent it back the next day.
