If you’ve played any other Super Slam Hunting game, then you know what to expect: you go through several locations armed with a variety of weapons to shoot a variety of animals.
In Alaska, you mainly hunt deer and moose, but you can also go for fish, rabbits, cougars, and other wildlife found in American’s largest state (just don’t shoot the does and only use the bow to shoot fish with).
There are 19 levels here, but only one can be played from the start. You get points by shooting the right animals, hitting a vital spot, getting a chain of consecutive hits, hitting more than one animal with one shot, or hitting from a long distance away. You have to beat certain number of points to get gold, silver or bronze, and you must get one of the three to pass the level and unlock the next level(s). (I know, this is just like any other Super Slam Hunting game).
Unfortunately, the locked levels will put a crimp in anyone interested in making this a party game; you first have to unlock the levels in Solo Mode or Co-Op Mode before you can play it Versus Mode (every player for themselves)
And the biggest headache I got is the sniper rifle - zooming in on the target blackened out the entire screen except for a tiny circle with the crosshairs. The limited view really ticked me off, and I rarely used that gun. (I go mostly for the shotgun - it has an incredible blast radius).
But this game does deliver a good hunting experience, and it can be fun with up to four players hunting animals as a team or as competing hunters (you just have to unlock the levels first).
Remington Super Slam Hunting: Alaska is definitely worth a rent, and fans of the genre ought to go out and buy it.
