I enjoyed this game quite a bit when I first downloaded it. The open world feeling and multiple critters to blast with various weapons was really fun. However, after I had gotten about 50% through the gameplay the game crashed and will not open. I have wiped it and reinstalled but the game still will not open. Until the devs fix this problem stay away from this waste of $30.

This game is relatively easy to play through. The mechanics are easily abused. However, this game is quite enjoyable even though the player is practically given victory.
One thing: buy this when its on sale, it's not worth the full price.

Love the game. The graphics are very life-like. Very fun game, I'm hooked. Only one problem, after 60 hours of play, the game no longer works. I have been working With Steam to find and fix the problem. After several hours working with Steam, it STILL doesn't work. I'm very disappointed. I will not be purchasing anymore games that require Steam to play, until they can get things operational once more!!

I would not recommend this game to anyone looking for a good hunting game. Unlike the earlier Cabela games which were a bit more relistic, this one has a arcade feel to it where your gear and weapons are very limited and the maps are small and to easy to hunt.

I give it a 2 out 5

This is worth getting if you like hunting game and get it on sale.

The game is somewhere between TheHunter and an arcade shooter. This is not really a sim, maybe action sim would be better. I enjoyed my time with it. I wouldn't pay 30 for it, but 20 or less is good.

If you've ever fired a real rifle or gone hunting, the fact that rib bones are armor plating against .270 rounds is a joke. The weapons in this game are just like a typical video game, there is no reason to go back to using lower caliber rifles once you get an upgrade, the upgrade is better all around.

I'd like to start by saying that if you have played previous Cabela hunting games, don't be put off buying this game by those games.

I was sceptical about getting it myself, because of some of the arcadey titles that Cabela have released in the past. I was pleasantly surprised by this game though, very pleasantly surprised. It is much more of a hunting simulator this time round.

You begin by playing through the tutorial mission that is very linear and a disappointing start, but then things really start to open up.

You unlock one of the four large areas of the USA and have three different types of hunts available. One of which is an OPEN hunt. That's right. Open world hunting on a very generously sized map (one of the available 4 to begin with). You complete all of the PRO hunts (one of the other types) to unlock the other areas of the USA.

You earn gear credits by hunting and there is a great selection of weapons and equipment.

You can view your best trophies in a trophy viewing area with shot information etc.

Bullet time with exact information about your shot and where you hit the animal (vital hits, deflection off ribs, shoulder blades etc. etc.)

At least 10 different big game animals to hunt as well as many other smaller animals e.g. rabbits, wolves, foxes etc.

I've only played for about 30 minutes so far, but this is already proving to be a great game for the price.

Thank you Cabela for a great hunting experience this time round!

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

If you're thinkin' ,"I'm curious about this but all these games have sucked for such a long time.", you'd be right where I was. Well, it's surprizingly good. I've been having a lot of fun creepin around the woods, taking down these suckers. The graphics are the best I've seen in a hunting game, not including the cut scenes with the pro hunters.

Here's one experience I had.
I'm slowly creeping up on a bear, armed with a bow, as he's laid down in a clearing. (Keep in mind, I just bought the bow and this was the first bear I was going after.) From about 30 yards I take aim and draw back, carefully trying to judge where its heart is....I release. The shot goes into a slowmo x-ray cam like on Sniper Elite. The arrow pierces its skin, missing all of its vital organ and only breaks a rib.....uh oh. That sucker roars, gets up and charges! Back pedaling, I quicky and franticly aim at his chest and shoot another arrow. In the slowmo cam I watch it pass about 2 inches from his left side. Sh*t! This sucker's now about 20 yards from me at full charge. In a split second I think, "Ok. I'm goin' for his freakin brain." I draw back, aim and shoot as fast as I possibly could. The slowmo cam kicked in and I'm thinkin, "Ok. this is it. No more chances." The arrow pierces his skull and dead centers itself smack in the middle of his brain. In full charge, he crashes to the ground about 4 feet in front of me, dead. I proceed then to the bathroom.

If you like the genre, I absolutly recommend it. I'm havin' a hell of a lotta fun with it.

I have not played Cabela's games for quite a few years because they were garbage. Took a chance on this one and it is great. Awesome graphics, great gameplay, authentic difficulty is quite challenging. I usually don't write reviews but I think everybody who likes the game should openly support it. Cabela's has a lot to do in order to regain my trust and a lot of people out there as well. This is great first step.

I enjoyed this game while it was working properly. Unfortunately, the game stopped launching after a certain point. Many users, including myself, have posted in various forums requesting a fix, but the devs are either unaware or don't care. I can't recommend this game until the issue is fixed, unless you consider it a rental.

Best simulator hunting!

Nice graphics and animation, I like this game. But rather a detailed hunting simulator likely to appeal to hobbyist over the general gamer.

9/10

Game PERMANENTLY crashes for many users after a certain play time. Activision knows but offers no fix. Do not support this.

Don´t bother with this game, it stops working after 30 hours and the developer refuses to patch it.
