The game is very frustrating. With the default equipment you get tired very quickly with every character. I know they are trying to be realistic but realistically you would need a truck to carry half the basic set of equipment. You get tired just walking up a little hill and you walk extremely slow most of the time. The hunting areas are really small, it is like hunting in somebody's backyard. You can easily trap the animals against the hills and they run in circles until you kill them, which is not much of a challenge. You also have to wait for the game to load all the time. You walk just a few hundred feet and then have to wait for the LOADING..... To further add to the frustration, you frequently slide down the smallest hill and it says you are too injured to go on, and yes, you guessed it, more of that LOADING.... Also, if you walk or slip into the water you can't get out and guess what, yes, you guessed it again, LOADING.... Like if that was not enough, you will get in trouble for shooting near a building. You do it twice and, oh, the suspense is killing you, I know it.... LOADING..... ARRRGAHHH!!!! I could go on, and, well, I think I will. When you use the vehicles they are really hard to drive. Most of the time I get stuck in trees or drive off a cliff or into the water and LOADING.... They should change the name of this game to Cabela's LOADING.... All I wanted to do was some hunting. My final thought is RETURNING.....

Big Game Hunter for PS2 is very well made, a super-fun hunting game that has three modes: easy, medium, and hard. The "hard" level is pretty close to real hunting. You must be stealthy and patient to succeed on hard mode. Allows you to sight-in and practice with your weapon at a shooting range. Provides a ton of extra equipment you might want, including map, GPS, range finder, binoculars, spotting scope, scents, large decoys, blinds, various calls, food, water, first aid, proper clothing and tents, ATV, pickup, snowmobile. Saves and mounts your best trophies of each animal in your cabin. Teaches you rules of hunting by fining you when shooting too close to inhabited building or shooting animal for which you do not have a tag.
I've found best strategy is to choose a hunter character with the highest accuracy and stealth. These are more helpful than strength, tracking, resilience. So far I've found the .280 to be the most accurate; it's pretty might right on at 80-100 yards, and shooting just a little high up through 150 yards and beyond will still hit the animal. Seems to drop about two feet at 200 yards. Longest shot I've ever hit in the game is about 167 yards.
For real excitement, trying hunting grizzly with the recurve bow (plain-old bow and arrow, not compound) or the .357 Magnum! You have to get very close, like 25-30 yards, and hit him once or twice and then run for your life, because he chases you, then turn and shoot, run for your life some more. Sometimes takes six shots with either of those weapons to bring down a grizz.
Most difficult animal to bag seems to be the coyote, because it's very small, runs fast, and is wary. You have to kill four to beat the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic big game hunter April 14 2003
By A Customer
First I want you to know that I rate this game 4.5, but 4.5 rounds to 5 so 5 stars it is. I dont use wow thisn game rocks reviews so I will give you a breifing. This is one of the greatest games i have played. Its graphics are very good and it
is very real with scales like energy and you cant run to far if you have heavy suits on. This is not a game where there is 1 animal and you try to find it and kill it. You start of with for animals in the location. It will indicate there position with a red dot. You must be quiet and stalk them down to kill them and get trophies. When you beat the game they will give you some secret characters. Then you beat it with them. I will give you a scale about my ratings. this will tell you why i gave it 4.5
Graphics:1 star
Creative scales:1 star
Loading time:.5 star
animal behavior:1 star
see your log cabin:1 star
As you can see this game has bad loading times. It might be just me being impateint but... Another thing that parents should know (if your under 13) is the amount of blood. When you shoot an animal it will blood splatter. It is not large but violence and blood made this game T for teen.

5.0 out of 5 stars NICE GOING CABELS Dec 3 2002
By G.A.
This game is addicting!!! even if you are not a big hunter, it's just a lot of fun shooting the different weapons,there's like ten or eleven models provided,along with other gear.you also have eight or so hunting locations to choose,not to mention a variety of hunters and animals so to speak. One really nice advantage is you have access to a truck,an ATV, and a snowmobile to get you from place to place.I admit when you first start playing it's somewhat tricky,but you catch on after a while. I think it's a real challenge for even the most experienced hunters as well. to be perfectly honest if you are thinking about buying this game rent it first,because it might not be for everyone,not saying it's a bad game or anything,but it's better to spend a few bucks and be safe then to waste fourty or fifty bucks!!! anyhow heres my ratings graphics ***** game controls**** variety of weapons***** variety of hunting locations**** variety of animal decoys and lures****variety of animals***** game difficulty **** variety of vehicles**** and last but not least FUN***** I hope that my game description helps, if you like to shoot guns,you'll like this game!!! I think Cabelas did a pretty good job,THANKS CABELAS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sping the extra $10 and buy Deer Hunter
Bad controls, bad driving, bad graphics, and bad loading. Don't waste your money. Deer Hunter goes right where this game failed.
