I bought this game because of the Cabela name and what looked like great graphics on the backside cover but it was an absolute dud from the very start. The graphics are beyond horrible and the camera can't be controlled so you can only see things based on where the character runs to. The overwhelming majority of the game is spent climbing things and the things you are climbing all look exactly the same so it is unbearably repetative. The hunting scenes aren't actually hunting scenes. They are ambushes by the same predators over and over and they all do the same moves. Actual hunting happens I think twice in the game and briefly at that. Reloading your gun takes 1/18th of a second for some reason. The ending is so silly that it's downright funny. The game is also really short. I finished it in about 5 hours. I expected many hours of gameplay for the $40 I spent on the game. But to be honest, I don't think I could have lasted much longer with the game because it is so brutally repetative.
The only thing I enjoyed, and it wasn't much, was the dog-sledding. And that only happened in two short scenes. Believe me folks, DO NOT buy this game. If you really want to play it, rent it! It's not worth buying AT ALL. I'm going to sell it immediately so hopefully I can get some of my $40 back.
