PSX Extreme writes: "These days, hunting is always a controversial subject, even in the virtual world. But given the fact that video games often have you "hunting" a variety of different targets, ranging from human to animal to extra-terrestrial, nobody should find anything too offensive about Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009. In fact, the series has mostly operated in the shadows in past years, selling to real-life hunting fans and never making it to the top of the sales charts. The first next-gen entry in the series is unlikely to fare much better, but you never know… See, they've decided to institute more in the way of action and adventure in this title that clearly appears to be a FPS; the blend may appeal to a wider variety of gamers, provided the gameplay mechanic is solid. However, despite this hope, Cabela still wishes to cater to the bush-beatin' folks who love the thrill of the hunt. And there's nothing wrong with that."
