When I saw that this game advertised that, you could "plan your hunt with unprecedented freedom" and that "you decide the journey and destination", I was excited. Would I finally be able to go back to tracking an animal, moving where I wanted, when I wanted, and hunt for however long I wished?
Yes and no.
Gone is the linear tracking. You can move where you want in the map you choose, when you want to. You can track animals by looking out for hints they leave, like tracks. There is also warning lights indicating that game is nearby and you are either being too noisy in your approach or they just plain ran away. If you really want a hand, you can activate 'Hunter Sense', which brings up a night-vision-like screen where you can see tracks and game more easily. Their claim that you can decide your destination is somewhat false. When you start the game, you have one choice for a simple hunt: Louisiana. All other destinations are locked, presumably until you get a high enough score to unlock the next.
While I was happy you could bag as many of the specified animal as you wanted, I was disappointed to see it was still timed. Not only that, but inaccurately. While the game may say you have three hours to do what you wish, time is sped up to probably halve that. What's the point of saying you have three hours when you only actually have an hour and a half? It's confusing and aggravating.
The skewed time is not the biggest aggravation, however. It is next to impossible to control the game. Using the Top Shot Elite, I could only barely move my gun and even then I would find the camera shooting wildly in the direction I had nudged toward. If there is a sensitivity slider somewhere in the options, I have yet to find it. There are little to no instructions, I spent half the time of the level trying to figure out how to get the gun off of my character's back. Perhaps practice is all that is needed to bring the aiming under control, but I was so irritated that I couldn't control the crosshairs I didn't play another game after the first one.
Should practice indeed help, I find a slider, and/or figure out some other trick to make this game more easy to control, I will update my review. However, even ignoring the timing issues and locked destinations, the lack of control prevents me from giving this title any higher than a generous three stars.
