Big Game Hunter
13 March 2014
Summary: This turned out to be a little more complicated than we wanted. There is nothing wrong with it if you are really into this kind of thing. The gun stoke is a little thick and hard to hold for an extended period.
Summary: The 4-yr old broke the gun stock extension shortly after arrival. Looked sturdy enough to me, but that's a 4-yr old boy for you. The scope and calibration for a 58" large screen TV are virtually useless, so you just have to learn to use the "X" on the TV like a laser sight. You can't use the scope as if it were a real crosshair.
Summary: Mine was for the PS3, and my advise is, don't even bother with "calibration" if you have a big screen TV. Which is kinda silly cause I always thought a hunting game would be better on a 50 inch than a 27 inch. My opinion is that the problem lies with the sensor bar. It is only 7 inches center to center between the sensing eyes. A better solution would have been two separate "modules" each with a single eye, that mounted at the edge of the screen.
Summary: I haven't played much of the game yet but so far the story mode seems all right. It is a bit weird controlling walking with the nun-chuck while aiming with the gun but otherwise fine. The feel of the gun is pretty good, i was quite impressed. I don't like the red tint on the scope much though but that is just preference. The 'arcade mode' of the game is where i felt a bit let down. The biggest issue here for me is the music.
Summary: I like shooting games and this one is OK. I'm trying to get a bit more excited about it but really it is very average. Plus points: The gun works well and I had no trouble syncing it. shooting pretend animals is fun. minus points: Game is VERY linear in story mode and the shooting ranges are very similar to each other.
