Oh deer, here we go again.
If it wasn't clear from the title, this game isn't for everybody. With that said you can tell developer Southlogic Studios loves the sport. The single player gives you a good sense of the desolate wild and at times you will feel like you're really out in the wilderness. However, this game requires a lot of patience. You can play for an hour and not find an animal worth killing; the game will probably bore non-hunting fans. To be frank, I'd like to give this game a higher score, but the number of bugs and tweaks that need to be fixed really does hamper the package as a whole. With that said, this game isn't a bad value for the hardcore hunter at $20.
The menus are generic and simplistic, although you can create and customize the look of your avatar. The game is appropriately priced at $20.
Visuals are satisfactory, but the game isn't optimized very well. Deer Hunter Tournament gives older rigs a good workout.
Environmental sound effects are awesome, but the game lacks ATV noises, and the voice work randomly kicks out.
Deer Hunter Tournament isn't a bad hunting game, and it does have a lot going for it, but the landscapes are often too devoid of any actual prey.
Lasting Appeal (5.5/10)
There are 10 levels and the Walmart Edition adds a level. Multiplayer currently does not work and some will quickly grow tired of the desolate wastelands.
Deer Hunter Tournament - PC - Review
Ok, quick history, I was raised in Montana, one of the last really great states in the Union where you can hunt and fish and live an outdoorsman's life. And while I have always preferred fishing to hunting; I do enjoy hunting, but since moving to the Seattle area, there have been less hunting and fishing trips for me. I just don't see the point that having once drank from the golden chalice to now sip from a rusty bucket that is. So I saw this was available, I said "what the heck" and here we are. My first thought was that I had made a pretty big mistake. Looking at the specs required to play the game on the box, and knowing my PC was well above those recommended, yet I was plagued by some processing issues and graphical shortcomings. It seems the game's package was a bit misleading as my Duo Core 6600 with 2 gigs of RAM and 256mb graphics card were left feeling woefully inadequate as I stalked big game through the virtual forest. In reality, the game really just drops the ball on the secondary graphics, but we'll get to that...
