a hunting game that actually got it right. I've played everything from Cabelas to Hunting Unlimited.
I was also a long time player of the free to play (and also to buy) theHunter. But out of all the hunting games that i've played over 7 or so years, Deer Hunter 2005 just keeps on amazing me. I look for realism, as much as possible while still making the game enjoyable. DH2005 has almost a perfect balance of both. This IS the most realistic hunting game you'll ever play as far as how the deer act and react with each other, and their environment. Sure the graphics are slightly outdated, but they still hold their own. TheHunter yes is definitely more pretty to look at; the environments in that game are absolutely beautiful, but how the animals act in that game just don't feel as natural or as realistic as DH2005. Now as far as the equipment goes theHunter
really did a good job, but so did DH2005. The muzzleloader for instance in DH2005 is extremely realistic as to how to fires, loads, and sounds (i've shot them many times in RL).
But overall, DH2005 will give you a more memorable experience than theHunter. I know, i experienced both games. MANY hours on both games. And even though theHunter will definitely draw your attention for awhile, you'll just
end up going back to DH2005 (if you're a RL hunter like me and prefer animal realism) like i did.
It's sad though because i have a feeling no other game will ever be like DH2005, theHunter may one day grasp what the people behind DH2005 did, but currently it isn't looking that way.
If you love the outdoors and hunting, get this game! It's cheap, and will make you get even more itchy in your pants for hunting season!
This game will work on XP if you download the patch from Atari, but will not work on Vista with or without patch. Even running the game with backwards compatibility with in Vista results in errors and computer Lock up.I read in a forum that there was a Vista patch for the game but was unable to locate one for download. On XP All the features work execpt online game play, locks up your system and the only way to solve the problem was a system reset(reboot). As nice feature of the game is the ability to download and use custom maps. The draw back is that if you have different logons on XP that maps downloaded for one profile is not available for any of the others. You can also download a map editor to create and modify maps with, but I found the user interface to be complicated and hard to use, especially for a novice computer user.
Other than these issues the game is what you would expect it to be. I would recommend this game to anyone that enjoys the thrill of hunting in the non-hunting season. Hope this review helps you to decide wheter this is the right game for you and your computer.
