Save your "Bucks" for another game

This is the first game on the Wii I've played that is about hunting - and I'm sure it's not the last.
Cabela's Trophy Bucks is a shooter. In the 96 stages, you wander about the area looking for game to hunt.
You shoot at deer, turkeys, quails, ducks, rabbits, coyotes, and so on. You have a limited weapon selection, but it grows as you complete each level. Before long, you'll be using shotguns, rifles, bows, and handguns. The wide selections of game and weapons are the best part of Cabela's Trophy Bucks.
Each time you shoot the animal, you get points on how close/far you shoot it and how prized the animal is. To pass each round you must score a certain number of points in a time limit - usually two minutes.
But Cabela's Trophy Bucks' biggest flaw shows up: presentation. I found no real thrill of the hunt; you spot the animal, then shoot the animal; it drops, and moments later, it vanishes. Besides, the levels get repetitive very quickly After playing about twenty levels (forty minutes game play), I got bored.
Another problem with this game is the graphics aren't very good - the scenery is bland no matter where you go, the game look very much the same, and they're so far off in the distance, they look like still figures.
Adding to the boredom is long loading screens.
Cabela's Trophy Bucks offers some hunting fun, but not enough for me to buy it.

Hunting Shooting Gallery

As a Cabela's game it was ok, but it did have some draw backs.

The use of the Wii zapper was a nice touch that made the game feel more realistic and fun to play, compared to one that I played that did not use this and the controls were odd. The graphics were not so bad. There were definately a lot of levels, guns, and other toys to use.

The one draw back to the game is the hunting spaces. The hunts that I got were all times hunts. You basically have a small amount of time to reach you goal, or you restart the level. Most of the time you only get one chance to get a shot in. Also you are confind to a small area to hunt. You walk so far and then you just stop and can not go any farther. Basically, it is just a shooting gallery. You get a set amount of time and a small area, you miss you're done.

The good thing is that it looks like the Cabela's hunting games on the Wii are getting better with each one. So, hopefully the next one I try will be a bit better.
