Ugh I really wanted to like this game; I really did! Unless I'm ever in a desperate situation, I don't think I'll ever go hunting in real life, which is why I thought this game would simulate the hunting and this has turned into one of the most frustrating games ever...and I say this after constantly playing video games since 1992.
While Career Mode wasn't bad and had it's moments, the Action Zone just takes the cake when it comes to being anti-realistic. With power-ups aside, this is anything but realistic. Apparently I should have paid more attention in biology classes, because I had no idea that most large felines such as cougars and leopards are invulnerable to fire, especially from a point blank shots from a double-barrel shotgun shots straight to the head and that if you shoot them with a semi-automatic from far away through a scope, they simply shake it off and become good as new, ready to pounce on you.
If you are playing this thinking this strictly for achievements and think to yourself that this is just an easy 1000, be strongly aware and get ready to be frustrated as this experience will frustrate you and might make you hate wildlife, hunting and video games all together!
