Cabela's African Adventures took me by surprise. I used to think these games were all about hunting in first person view, but they're actually played in third person. At least I was right about the hunting aspect.
The game is split up into big, open areas. You can collect treasures, explore the world, do sidequests and, later on, hunt for the bigger enemies (which act as some sort of boss fight). There are 5 or 6 worls, with different environments and the hunting aspect is in fact kinda fun to do. No, it's not brilliant or anything, but entertaining. But by the time you reach world 3 or 4 you've probably seen it all. That's where I grew tired of the game. I'm sure most of you will, too. But I had a good time with it. It's a good pastime.
One more thing; the menus are a ♥♥♥♥♥ to navigate so I had actually overwritten my savegame when I was 2 hours into the game. Had to start all over again... The fact that you can't select a resolution above 1920x1080 was also a bit of a letdown.
