Top Shot Arcade promises to be better than your average on rails hunting game, but it turns out to be worse than your average on rails hunting game.
There are 90 levels that are available to play - but each level lasts about a minute, which makes this game have about one an a half hour’s worth of hunting on it.
It would be great if every time you played the same level was different from the last time, but that’s not the case here. The animals appear in the same locations and go in the same path every time. This vastly reduces the replay value.
Another problem with this game is you only get one gun - a hunting rifle. No shotguns and no pistols like you find in other games of the genre. What’s even worse is after firing a shot, you have to manually load the next bullet into the chamber. It annoying.
There are a few interesting bonus games you come across as you proceed through the stages, but they aren’t enough to overcome the all to mundane main stages.
And you can play this game with up to four players, but there are other on rails hunting games that will let you do that - and give you a better choice of weapons.
Top Shot Arcade just doesn’t measure up to the competition. SKIP IT.

Everyone in the house enjoyed this game. It was a little more challenging than most of the shooting games, and not as tedious as most hunting games. Everyone, from our 9 year old to the 21 year old and mom all had fun playing. The multiplayer mode was crazy, and at times a little hard to tell who was shooting what. Still fun, plenty of challenge. Not a game I would own, but would rent again.
This is a great game to play with the kids or during a small get together. It's a game that is not to difficult, even someone like me who does not play many games can still have fun. You can choose the animal and location you would like to hunt. There are also multiple bonus games following the end of every hunt. Not the most advanced of games, but a great time!
