Game modes and gameplay

Career mode

Here's what Activision said about Career Mode

"Career mode is set up with 15 different levels. Each level represents a certain place in the world and features unique wildlife and scenery"

"There different weapons that can be used. You can also hunt small game, and you can fall of the side of cliffs and get injured."

"Animals will sometimes charge past you but the player will not actually take any damage"

"There are dramatic weather changes but it will not happen within a single level. Different levels feature completely different climates and weather. And yes, they can interfere with your shot"

Quick Hunt mode

There're fifteen locations across North America and Africa with a wide variety of animals, you can hunt whatever you want, when you want, and where you want.

It's important to pay close attention to your surroundings and the way the vegitation is swaying, that can be used to tell you which way the wind is blowing. Then there's Hunter Sense, you can use that to find the best coverups, like the areas shaded in blue offer the best cover, and red is the places to cause more noise and have a better chance of being spotted, because these animals can hear you, smell you, and see you coming. You can climb around and jump around the environments, and go wherever you want in this game. Then you can use a Hilltop Location to get an overview of the map and find a better way to approach the trophies. It's very useful but you can hunt without doing that, this game's an authentic hunting experience and can go wherever you want in the locations. After you shoot the animal, by the way it's a good idea to wait until it's sideways, because that gives you access to its vitals, and a heart shot will give you the best integrity on your trophy, and after shooting the animal, it'll run around like in real life, Activision spent a lot of time making sure it'll look like as in real life.

Review

Presentation - 7

Good presentation, and great boxart, and wait...George said that there's everything from deer, to wolves to bears, lions and elephants and everything you can think of we'll probably have it. WRONG! Cabela's missed the mark once again!

Gameplay - 8

Nice gameplay, very good environments and gameplay, the Strategic View is very useful for how you take down your trophies and how to get to your destination. But there're no shotguns or pistols! What a ripoff! And there aren't that many animals like I'd hoped for, I'd expected a much bigger variety. And only in 3rd person, that's off the hook of an "authentic" hunt.

Length - 8

Good length of gameplay, it'll keep you busy for a little while. Nice to have quick hunt, but there's mostly the one target in the location you select, just MOSTLY that animal.

Graphics - 8

Very good environments, they all look splendid! But the animals look a bit unrealistic, and the person moves a bit funny.

Sound - 8

Very nice sounds, but the animal sounds are recycled from original games like Cabela's Outdoor Adventures (2009), Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2, and others. The nature sounds are great.

Lasting appeal - 7

This game can keep you busy for a while, but a LOT more could've been done, there're no pistols, shotguns, calls, treestands, tripod stands, lures or anything. This game could've used a LOT more!

Overall - 7.5

A fun game, but what a ripoff not having so much more, Cabela's, you need to get on the mark of a true authentic hunting game, let us choose between first and third person with shotguns, pistols, lures, calls, stands, a larger variety of animals and climbing around the environments. Get the mark next time, but I'd recommend it to anyone who likes killing things.
