This is a pretty good game. The complaints about the high-price might be warranted, but the complaints about the gameplay are mostly just the rantings of fanboys of other hunting games. The graphics are good, the animations are life-like, and the animal's AI is adequate. I have read complaints about the AI being dumb on the easier difficulty settings, and the high density of animals being unrealistic. I have only been playing on hard difficulty, and I have found it challenging to locate the correct species and land a perfectly-aimed shot. The user interface is straight forward and easy to navigate, and there is a number of graphic settings which can be modified to make the game run optimally for your system. Content wise, there seems to be a large amount of maps depicting different geographic regions, many kinds of wildlife, and many different guns and equipment to unlock. There is no create-a-hunter or player customisation, but instead you are able to select a pre-created hunter from a small list. That may be one of my only gripes with the game, but it's obviously inconsequential and not a deal-breaker. The game also supports X-box controllers, which some of it's competitors may or may not. Pretty solid as a hunting game, but i recommend buying the game when it's on a discount.
Pretty decent game. I haven't played a lot of it and I've still got a lot of stuff to do, but there seems to be a fair bit of content (weapons and items). Not sure how many missions there are, but the first map has 10 missions, so I guess it's about 10 missions per map. And since there's 12 maps, that'll make for around 120 missions? For the price, at least you're getting a lot of content. Especially with the additional features like multiplayer, freehunt and night missions. Night missions, something that particularly excites me! Graphics are great, and so far it's quite fun! Gameplay is basically. You spawn, you look for tracks and follow the footprints. It can take a while to complete a mission. Sometimes you come across an animal but decide to just take the shot, rather than remain patient and get a little closer. Additionally, I really like the addition of the animal senses. It reminds me of Thief or Dishonored. Trying to sneak around without getting spotted. It's nice to have that extra bit of feedback. Sure it might not be a true "Simulation", but I don't think that matters. As long as it's fun, who cares? It's a good open world game, and I think It's a game that you can spend many hours on. Alone or with friends.
Hunting simulator had potential. Graphics are nice, showcasing Unreal Engine 4, but it is yet another case of badly optimised game, to the point it gets sometimes unplayable even on lowest settings, with incredibly long load times even on SSD, from 3 to even 10 minutes. Sound is fine, but what kills this game, other than performance, is the gameplay itself. It is not engaging and for a simulator it feels too arcade for pacing this slow. Also, animal AI is pretty non-existent and buggy nature of this game leads to mission failed, since the animals sometimes won't appear. Nice looking game, but that's pretty much it. Grab it when on sale, maybe by then it will be somewhat fixed. For now, it is hard to recommend, because it is too shallow.
You get to explore a richly detailed open world and track, hunt and eliminate your prey. Of course, you'll have a lot of tools at your disposal to do this, each weapon suited to the different situations you'll find yourself in. I'm sure the developers went through a lot of pain to plan this game out, because the hunting system is refreshing realistic and even the time of day and weather will determine the difficulty of your hunt. Last but not least, the multiplayer is what makes this a defining experience, because you are able to team up with friends to hunt bigger game. Pull the trigger, go on and try this game.
