No-Holds-Barred Railshooting Hunting Action

Remington Super Slam Hunting Africa is a fast-paced arcade style shooting gallery game. It was released around the same time as Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011. The games play very similarly in style. The only difference is this one doesn't mess around with a useless story mode and lets you drop right into the action. There are 35 levels and a lot of different guns, scopes, and other upgrades. Each level the goal is to score the most points possible while strategically choosing your targets, slowing down time, and stringing together chain bonuses. All the while avoiding shooting the female animals. A lot of different predators are also thrown in the mix that add some danger to each level. There are crocodiles, hippos, lions, and leopards, among others. Unlike Dangerous Hunts one of the cool things is you see your weapon on screen. You see the shell casings fly out as you blast away in slow motion with your shotgun. In Dangerous Hunts all you have is a rifle and a shotgun. This game has a ton of weapons with their own stats that give replay value to the older levels to use better guns and upgrades as you unlock them. There is also co-op and competitive co-op through the whole game so it is fun to play with friends. If you want a budget no-holds-barred hunting rail shooter this is probably the game to get.

For those looking for a cheap hunting game

The hunting game - the game where you go out and shoot any creature that moves out there (well, almost; you’re not allowed to shoot does).
Remington Super Slam Hunting: Africa tries to be a cheaper version of Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011, utilizing the on rail shooting parts of Cabela.
In the single player mode, there are 35 levels, but all are locked except the first one. In each level you get points by shooting certain animals. You get more points if you get a vitals shot, a streak of consecutive hits, shooting valid targets from a long distance away, and finding masks (there are one in each level.)
As you go through the level, you get Wiley Vision which slows down the action for a short while making it easier to shoot targets.
Each level has medal requirements for gold, silver and bronze according to the number of points you accumulate in that level (gold has the toughest requirements, silver the second toughest, and bronze the easiest.) If you fail to score enough points to get any medal, you have to go through that level again.
If you pass, you unlock the next level where you do the same thing all over again. But you do get to unlock better guns, scopes, and other equipment to make it easier to get a high score.
But the presentation of this game is about as bland as you can get - you’re just going through the motions with some guy saying the same few lines over and over again.
And the multiplayer is nothing more than play a level unlocked in single player mode with up to four players. You can play as one team to see how many points all four players can get or as a contest to see who gets the must points.
It’s $20, but unless you’re looking for some cheap, bland hunting, I suggest you check out Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011 instead of Remington Super Slam Hunting: Africa. SKIP IT.

I wasn't expecting much of this game but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was very captivating and fun. It is simple and enjoyable. I can't wait to try the other Remington games asap.
