It time again to gear up and head out to hunt some serious game, including deer, bears, rodents, ducks, fish and other animals in Cabela's Outdoor Adventures 2010.
There are two modes in this game; the first one has you going through stages. Each stage has a guide that leads you to a spot where you either shoot birds with shotguns (that's the only way according to the law of this game), other land animals with rifles or fishing in lakes.
This game does a good job of giving us a first person shooter and the thrill of finding the right spot and getting the right shot on the target(s).
You shoot the bird anywhere or the other land based animals in their vitals (heart, spine), just like some other hunting games.
But the fishing parts could be better; when the fish gets onto the line, the game won't reconize some of the Wiimote gestures that's used to hook it in. It takes the fun out of fishing.
After you hunt the needed animals, you go onto the next stage, and so on.
The other mode in this game is where you create your own buck for you to hunt; you select the size of the body and some features of the animal (antlers, head, ears, and so on.)
After creating the animal, you get ten minutes to shoot it, but you have to watch out for the does; you have to leave them alone.
So what makes this version different from the other versions? A new type of vision. When you lock onto a land based animal like a buck, you can highlight the animal's vitals by holding down the A button. It's a very nice touch visually and it makes aiming for the kill shot much easier.
However, there's really not much depth to the game; those of you who do not like hunting games will find almost no reason to give this game a second look.
But I had some fun with hunting the land based animals in Cabela's Outdoor Adventures 2010, even if it's only for a short while. RENT IT.
I rented the game thinking it would be fun as I love hunting and being out in the wilderness. But the attack (by animals) are not realistic. You would have better focus in real life. and I am an excellent shot, there is very little I miss my mark on. but those skills do not transfer to this. All in all if I were snowed in and this was the only hunting I could do It would work. But there's nothing like the real thing Baby!
