For many years, Cabela’s has been a name synonymous with hunting games. It’s the Madden of shooting animals, if you will. Year after year, Activision releases new entries in the series, each incrementally updating the game’s engine, graphics, and gameplay. Actually, it’s a bit like Madden in that regard, too. That said, the most recent entry in the series, Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011, might be the largest departure from the norm in many years, adding not only a gun peripheral, but an interesting, moody story to boot. Sadly, things never really come together, and it’s hard to shake the feeling that the developers were torn on whether they were making a hunting game or a survival horror.
