Extravaganza isn't a word I would use to describe this hunting game. Average is more like it. In North America Hunting Extravaganza, you and up for three other players hunt various birds, deer, varmints, bears and other animals. In the single player mode, you are given twenty challenges over four areas. Each challenge has you shooting a number of animals within a time period (usually 3 minutes.) In three of the four areas, there's a "boss battle" where you have to take down a large creature, like a grizzly bear. The controls work fine - except for shaking the Wiimote to reload. That part was very clunky. The overall hunting experience wasn't that great. The animals run about in patterns that made the challenges far too easy. To offset that pattern shortcoming, they made the rifle very inaccurate. Shooting down birds with said rifle was frustrating. But the worst part is this game lacks presentation. You go from one stage to the next or one level to the next and shoot those cuddly animals. I found it a bland experience. Maybe it's a good thing the game's very short; I finished all four areas in three hours. The multiplayer might put some life into this dull game, but there's nothing special about that, either. Unless you have to have every hunting game there is, you can skip North America Hunting Extravaganza.
The game is very slow and the reload action inter fears with the squatting action so every time you try to reload you squat. The clip only hold 2 rounds, not very realistic! I played it for 10 minuets and sent it back. Don't waste your time!
