Do not buy this game at this point and time. The game has a issue/bug that will delete your game save after about 20 hrs or so of game play. If they ever fix it then maybe take a look because when the game works properly it is actually a lot of fun.

It may not be as realistic as theHunter but it's a fun game and doesn't cost an arm and a leg to play like theHunter.

This game is great to play, but is never updated by the manufacturer. The game is constantly refusing to load through STEAM. Iam removing from STEAM and I would not recommend anyone wasting their money on this game!!!

Game just won't load after a little over a week of game play. Steam won't refund after you played over two hours. Many people have had this issue, game works perfect then just quits!. Beware and save your money!

TL/DR: all-around best hunting game I've played. Relaxing, thoughtful and interesting.

I'm no fan of hunting IRL, in fact I'm a vegetarian! This game is really good though. I have a bit of a thing for games which require a low level of continuous concentration and patience (stealth games!) and this manages to strike an excellent balance between patience and skill. It is a very relaxing experience, perfect for those moments when you want to fill some time in a beautiful environment without doing anything taxing. It also strikes a good balance between simulation and arcade: great physics and a satisfying test of skill and patience without being boring. Probably my favourite aspect is how the game makes you really want to end it cleanly - you feel like a proper d!ck when you rush it and get a less than perfect shot. If you in any way lose yourself in a game like this when playing, you'll find yourself compelled to learn exactly where to place your shots and when, and when not, to take a shot. The wonderful X-ray bullet-time helps enormously in this, as well as being probably the single coolest feature of the game.

There is a lot of talk on the forums about save corruption. While I'm not sure whether the devs have fixed the issue, and although I think it's reprehensible if they haven't, the solution is a very simple one. All that is required is a tiny script, available with 2 seconds of googling, and you can back up a copy of your save whenever you start the game. Any problems and you've got the backup. I've never needed to use the backups as I've never encountered a save corruption, but essentially I want to say "Please don't be put off just because there is a known problem - it's so easily avoidable that it should not overshadow an otherwise excellent game!"

The only thing I would change in a heartbeat if I could: the game's time compression, which is forced to a standard 10:1. This is absolutely fine, and creates a nice challenge most of the time, but alongside the "mission" hunts (which are all along the lines of "hunt x of y from z") are free-hunts where you have no goals and can spend a full day of in-game time just doing whatever you want. In that situation I would like to have the option to relax the time compression and spend essentially as long as I want mooching about in the woods. It's hardly game-breaking!

This game was fun, but a bit too easy sometimes.
I recommend getting it on a (50%) discount though...

Many people complain about irreversable game crashes, corrupting save games, etc.
I only had 1 general/random game crash, and no other crashes or weird things happen. (except for deer that fall through the ground and dissapear (happend twice..) )

All in all it was fun, a nice change from shooting ww2 soldiers/zombies.

Now and then I was hoping to see the Slender Man on a hill top, but no luck.
(Sometimes I wished that I could hunt/shoot the annoying american characters from the video clips..)
