When a bear kills your Russian friend during a hunting trip, you swear to avenge him by killing a lot of beautiful animals. Welcome to the latest installment of one of the odder niche video games on the market.
"Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009" is not what it may seem to the uninitiated. You don't just hang back and wait to kill animals as they walk by. There are elements of adventure, stealth and strategy involved – none of which are done with any great skill. Non-hunting fans looking for an adventure/first person shooter should keep looking. But fans of hunting and, obviously, fans of this series will likely find a good time if they want one. That's what makes the game a bit "review-proof." Some of you will buy it, some of you will rent it, and some of you will keep walking. 6/10
