So for the record, I love hunting games. I have my favourite and that Alaskan adventures by Cabela. It is the game I hold all other hunting games too. Anyway here we get a lot more streamlined experience. You dont need to get permits or vehicles and sit still for hours, A lot more of an arcade approach you get an objective and just go. No penalty for messing up except scaring off your target and adding more time. I like this game personally as it is nice to have a quicker experience but I just wish we could have a bit faster progressions or just faster movement and a tighter shooting model. That aside the game is solid and a lot of fun. Th locations especially Alaska is lush to explore and hunt in. I hope to see more content but I wont hold my breath. The game does a good job of bringing in new and old players alike but figuring out mechanics is messy as you get no guidance. I have lost countless hours to the hunting as I just really dig the whole premis. In short if you want to get your hunt on, You can do a lot worst than Deer hunter reloaded, Its a fun solid game and completely playable and worthwhile.
