This is not a great game, but it is good and a lot of fun. the game doesn't have a lot of depth and can be repetitive. it's basically like the arcade hunting style of games you see at bars and restaurants. you and your friends can compete for high scores. there are bonus animals to shoot and many levels. i recommend to rent or buy for cheap.
When I first heard the title to this game, I thought it was about Deer driving cars. But no, it's a hunting game where you shoot deer (not driving cars). During the game, bears, moose, ducks and varmints show up, giving you some variety of targets. Most are harmless, but when a bear or moose show up, you have to take it down before it plows into you, ending the round or level. There are two difficulty setting to Deer Drive - Beginner and Normal. In the Beginner setting, almost any shot will down a buck. In the Normal setting, the player has to hit the deer in the vital areas - the head or the heart. As for game mode, there are three in Deer Drive - One Player, Versus, and Hunting Party. In One Player, you play through levels. In each level, the player has to shoot a certain number of game (buck, moose, bear, duck or squirrel) within a time limit to advance to the next level. Then that player has to shoot a number of game within a time limit to move to the next level and so on. As you progress through the levels, you get items (a better gun, more bullets per clip, a faster reloading gun). Versus Mode pits two players to see who can get most game in three two minute rounds. Hunting Party pits two to four players. They players take turns to see who gets the most game in three two minute rounds. Problem is, all you do do here is shoot deer, deer and more deer. Find deer, shoot deer, find another deer, shoot another deer. Okay, you may have to shoot a bear or moose along the way, but it's deer you're after. It only took an hour for me to get bored with the flat presentation and graphics of Deer Drive. This feels like a bargain basement game that I'd buy for $15 - tops. But $30 is too much for Deer Drive, a basic deer shooting game. SKIP IT.

Unless you like catching fish in a barrel, I would not recommend this game. There is no real hunting. It is like duck hunt with deer. It is more a target practice game. There is not strategy, no hunt, nothing. The deer are just there and you shoot them. My 6 year old even got bored with it.
