Good

Pretty lame, and unrealistic, but fun.

This game really wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be. I was expecting it to be more of a "free roam" where you could run around and hunt animals as you like but each level has set routes you go to and the only time you could shoot is whenever you get attacked by random animals. There were only 2 times when you were sent on a hunt mission.

Now some ways that the game is really unrealistic is you start off early on with a flare gun, and there is a part in the game where you have to go to a ranger building and see if there is a working radio there but instead of shooting the flare gun to signal the plane you have to run around and see if the abandoned building has a radio in it still? This is even seconds before you start a fire for a check point.

The story was fairly good though until a few missions in when really it just all of a sudden loses focus. I really think that if they spent more time paying attention to details it would make the game much more enjoyable, or if they made the story longer instead of cramming it all in such a small time space.

Aside from the story mode it has an arcade style shooting that really isn't too fun unless you have playstation move.

The game took me 2 hours to beat on hard difficulty (which was actually still really easy) and it has an alright gameplay and easy trophies so I would recommend at least playing it once if you are into these sorta games.

a truly intruiging storyline. gameplay is fun although controls can be semi annoying to get te hang of. I espexially like the two player shootout version.
