I wasn't expecting much out of another tv based game, at least its amusing and a half decent thousand point game. The only level that is consistently buggy and broken is the last one. But running around collecting stuff isn't as bad as I thought. Weird thing was....I actually learned some facts....lol. Albeit useless. But nevertheless, if your a fan and not expecting a totally refined game, its worth a rent.

I heard alot of hype about how terrible the game was, I played each mission twice to get all of the achievements though you could do them all in one go. Skydiving is the best way to level up I might add.
After you get over the hype and get over how they make Bear Grylls out to be some kind of modern marvel, the game is not all that bad and the graphics of the levels start to look pretty good. Sure it is awful in comparison to some top notch games like Skyrim or Fallout 3 new vegas. But what do you expect, its a Reality TV show game.

First off let me say I love the show, the game not so much. I found this game to be rather frustrating from the saved game loading bug to the unfair quick time events; most notable in Patagonia the last episode, trying to balance on the horse was almost impossible but trying to get on the train was the worst i must have tried 50 times, they give you no leeway what-so-ever completely unfair. I wonder sometimes who tests these games, anyway this was the first time in a long time that I had to refrain from breaking a game disc in half. Needless to say I never got on the train and I sent the game back without completing it. I never do that.
Although it seams like a fully negative review it's not, the good is the educational value this game brings to the table, it's fun for the most part reliving some of your favorite episodes of the show, at least bear does his own voice overs (I laugh every time he pronounces words differently than I do), and the achievements are easy.
If you like the show it may be worth it just to check out the game but gamer beware....
