Nice Game, Poor Gun
29 October 2013
Summary: I purchased this mainly for the gun and it worked for all of about 3 hours. My wife and I were taking turns with it and changing the position of the stock. Well after about the tenth time the latch stopped working and now I have tape holding the stock opened enough for an adult to use. Looks cool but cheaply made.
Summary: If you have a big screen TV, dont bother with this game. It will never calibrate, and this is a known problem about this game, but evidently the company that makes this game can't seem to fix it.
Summary: The gun/remotes do not calibrate on this game!!! It shakes all over the place!! So frustrating that we could not even play it. It may look good on the screen, but if you can't shoot or play it it is worthless. It takes minutes just to try to get it to stop moving enough to push "play!!" Don't waste your money or time on this one.
Summary: I bought this game thinking it would be fun to have something in hand to serve as a gun. The fact that you can't aim and hit targets takes that away. I like others, spent an hour or so trying to calibrate it. It does not matter what screen size or distance to the semsor bar, it does not calibrate to the degree that you can enjoy playing the game. The game itself is too easy and nothing close to real hunting.
Summary: My son got this for my husband for Father's Day. It is completely impossible to calibrate no matter what we all try. This makes game play frustrating and not worth the effort. It is going back to the store. Our investigation online showed that many people are having this same problem.
