Why didn't they just make it a pistol? The gun is a joke!

Summary: Gun is child size, too small for an average adult to hold like a real rifle without it being really awkward. Because of the size you probably won't shoot it like a rifle, you'll hold it out from your body like a pistol. So it would have been a lot smarter and more realistic to just make the gun a pistol. Sights are useless, only two white plastic bumps. When holding the gun like a rifle I found it to small to use the sights anyway.
Summary: graphics are terrible, movement is not intuitive and aiming is awkward and slow. i think the game needs to be a lot better for them to charge what they are charging for it. I will never buy one of these games again.
What good is a cool gun if it can't be calibrated!!

Summary: It did not meet my expectations as you are not able to calibrate the rifle as in the earlier editions. Point of aim vs point of impact is off by at least a foot (and moves around) which makes using the gun a frustrating experience, not fun. Yes I downloaded the patch and yes I am using it at the recommended distance parameters.
Summary: This is a perfect example of expectations not aligning with reality. Our family purchased an Xbox 360 (our first console) a couple years ago for our sons (now ages 10 and 8). We have the Kinect but we've never played a game that required its own controller, much less one shaped like a hunting rifle.
