Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2008 Review: Time to go kill Bambi's mother (IGN)

Hunting games are always presented with an interesting quandary during the design process. The sport of hunting isn't exciting in the least bit. The majority of time is spent sitting in one spot waiting for that one prize buck to wander aimlessly into sight. Then there's one shot and one shot only at taking down the award winning animal. But how to make a videogame that encompasses that feeling while still making it fun to sit down and play for longer than three and a half minutes? If it was truly authentic no one would want to play it, but make it too much like a videogame and you've alienated your core audience. Such is the crux of why most Cabela games are released with more of a whimper than any form of a bang.

IGN is sad to report that Cabela's Big Game Hunter is no different: it gets a 6.4/10. (Cabela's Big Game Hunter, PC, PS2, Wii, Xbox 360) 5.9/10
